One of the finest examples of Scottish architecture in the area, The Breadalbane Inn (bruh-DAHL-bun) was built by George D. Fergusson a son of Adam Fergusson a co-founder of Fergus. What began as a small stone cottage in 1851, the home was expanded using stone construction with expensive imported details and amenities and named “Mapleshade" in 1860.
In 1975, this former residence turned nursing home, was converted into an inn by Philip and Jean Cardinal originally from Ottawa, Ontario and renamed the “Breadalbane Inn.”
The Breadalbane Inn was purchased in 1996 by chef Peter Egger and family. Egger’s culinary prowess soon put its mark on the Maple Shade Dining Room, now Scozia Restaurant and within the Fergusson Room Pub. Now part of Egger Hospitality, a group of restaurant properties devoted to local food and to their communities, the Inn is unique in that it is their only accommodation property.
The Breadalbane Inn has eleven charming suites each beautifully appointed. All have ensuites, many have the added luxury of in-room Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces. The Carriage House, adjacent to the Inn has two deluxe suites available to help you celebrate that "Special Occasion".

“I want to sincerely thank the owners and the staff at Breadalbane Inn for the care and attention that they gave to me and my family. Every detail from our quaint room to the food served downstairs was beyond expectations. I can't wait to go back!”
“We stayed at the Breadlebane Inn in the McCatty Room last weekend. The suite has a private patio, whirlpool bath, in-room coffee, tea and hot chocolate and THE most comfortable bed. The room was impeccably decorated with huge comfortable chairs and big screen TV. The down comforter was cool during the warm night. We were very impressed. Also the fine dining at the Scozia Italian Restaurant was delicious. Just new this year, Scozia (which mean Scotland) had many entrees I lead a vegetarian lifestyle and have gluten sensitivities. I still had quite the time deciding. There were many choices. We were served our meal on the expansive patio where we were entertained by chipmunks. The next morning, the breakfast was equally delicious. You must try the "gypsy eggs". Our hats off to all the wonderful staff who made our stay perfect. We were made to feel "at home" and at the same time very special. Thank you to everyone for their considerable effort. We will have a return visit very soon.”
“We spent one night at the Inn. Enjoyed dinner and Breakfast and everything the Inn had to offer. Regret not hitting the Pub! Walked along the River, which was great. The Service and Ambiance made the experience.”
