Convenience Store Closed

Please note that the convenience store, at McLaughlin’s Wharf Inn, is closed.  We felt that business was not sustainable year round and decided to reserve our downstairs space for our guests.  There is a Continental breakfast available in the downstairs area for those who occupy our rooms.

As well, you will notice the “For Sale” sign on our building.  We are hoping to be able to sell the business in the coming days.  We have mixed emotions as we contemplate this.  Over the years we have developed rich relationships with a diverse, cross-section of people from all around the world.  Our lives have been enriched through this experience.  A significant portion of our business comes from an established clientele for whom, Mclaughlin’s Wharf Inn is their go-to choice of accommodations.

In the meantime, it is business-as-usual at McLaughlin’s.  We look forward to serving our new and return guests.

Make your reservations today …

Grand Manan Rotary Festival

MWI rotary

The Grand Manan Rotary Festival is the highlight of the summer on Grand Manan Island – the largest island in the Bay of Fundy archipelago.

Travel to the island on the new MV Grand Manan Adventure ferry boat so you can experience an island festival unlike any other in the Maritime provinces.

The festival is held each year to coincide with the long weekend in August. The festival offers 4 evenings of local entertainment, craft exhibits and promotional and food displays. A parade, fireworks, barbecue, and various other food events also take place. Don’t miss the golf tournament, road races and other competitions associated with the festival!

The Grand Manan Rotary Festival is your opportunity to experience island culture, entertainment and food at its best.

This year’s festival will be held August 1-4, 2015.
