The Morton House Inn is a year-round, turn-key and fully licenced 7-unit B&B perched on almost 2 acres of rolling lawns and gardens overlooking beautiful gardens and the picturesque Mersey River. An Empire-style 1864 Provincial Heritage Property built by master builder John Wyman, this historic property continues to be a landmark in the Queens County area; the grounds regularly used for photographs during weddings, graduations, anniversaries etc. In 2005, the current owners lovingly restored the property to reflect the 1800's atmosphere and appeal. Upon entering the foyer, guests often comment on the spectacular curved staircase and the legendary skylight that illuminates both the first and second floor hallways of the Inn. Striking ceiling mouldings, hardwood floors, original brick hearth and exposed beams are complimented by beautiful antiques and furnishings that reflect the 19th century era - exquisitely blended with modern 21st century conveniences. In the main house there is a two-bedroom owner's suite, and four guest rooms with private, modern en suite baths.
Common areas include a main floor parlour, reading library, dining room and second floor lounge. Three additional efficiency units are contained in a separate building; each fully equipped with fridges, microwaves and toasters. The large waterfront parcel is a frequent picnic and swimming area; also a launching point for canoeing or kayaking on the river. Detached single garage and ample parking. The charming village of Milton is in the heart of Nova Scotia's South Shore; just 1.2 km (1 mile) from the Town of Liverpool. 90 minutes to Halifax and international airport.
