“I want it to be known that we are a very welcoming place because it is quite enriching to have people of all walks of life here at our Inn. Joining an association like this, I know first hand they will have a good experience if I make a recommendation of the other members’ businesses.“

- Judy MacDonald, Owner of the Barachois Inn

Located in Rustico and central to most any activity or destination on PEI, The Barachois Inn is Prince Edward Island’s definitive five-star country inn, in every way - the authentic heritage of an 1880 home cast in the halo of St. Augustine’s imposing church steeples - beautifully appointed, rich with antiques, superb breakfasts, immersion in comfort and privacy and the genuine hospitality of the MacDonald family.

Over the course of the past month, you have gotten the opportunity to meet some of the members who make up the PEI Gay Tourism Association. Each member has their own unique story and commitment to growing an inclusive and welcoming community on PEI. Next week will be our last story in the series.

"I am a cyclist, so I decided to join a group dedicated to cycling in hopes of meeting friends and like-minded people. Joining the PEI Gay Tourism Association is no different. I was joining to show our business is accepting and to share what we have to offer with those who like also wine, food and a great lifestyle."
