About
Description
The Marathon Inn is everything you would expect of a hotel originally built over a century ago (Est. 1871) by a retired sea captain. The Inn has been well maintained over the years and has recently been More refurbished. It still retains the charm and leisurely living of another age. Antiques and period decor complement the mood. You will be welcomed and served with gracious hospitality during your stay. The rooms are sun-clean and inviting with private bath. Many of them overlook the harbour. We offer a licensed retaurant and there is also a solar-heated swimming pool. We now offer High Speed wireless Internet Access. Marathon Inn is Grand Manan Island's Elderhostel/Road Scholar destination. At the Marathon Inn, your comfort and enjoyment is our first concern and your vacation on this enchanting island in Atlantic Canada will long leave fond memories with you. Less
