The heritage and history of the building has been thoughtfully preserved with period antiques and original plank flooring and Nova Scotian Folk Art. A stroll through the rooms on a quiet evening will convince you that the inn has a story to tell. It is said that on occasional foggy summer nights, the ghost of a playful, almost mischevious girl has made herself known to guests who stay at The Garrison House. She visits only one room and only women have felt her presence. Emily is her name and she has endeared herself to staff and guests for years.
The Inn overlooks the spectacular 20 acre Fort Anne National Historic Site with its grassy ramparts, walking trails and stunning views of the Annapolis Basin at sunset. One only has to walk along the parapets and breathe in the salty air to imagine the tall ships appearing on the horizon. Each Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening in the Garrison graveyard there are candelight tours where you are guided through history exploring the lives of those who lived and died in Annapolis Royal hundreds of years ago. It is the oldest British graveyard in Canada and the tour is led by an Acadian historian dressed in period costume complete with top hat and mourning scarf. Each guest is given an antique lantern to carry and it is a common sight from the Garrison House dining room to see the soft light from the candles shining through the mist, as the tour winds its way through the historic site.
