When David Wilmer first saw the building that would become the Inn at Bay Fortune it had gone through a number of incarnations. First as the summer home of Elmer Harris, later the year-round residence of Colleen Dewhurst and finally as an abandoned tumble-down ghost haunting PEI's eastern shore. What he and his team accomplished in rescuing the property from the wrecking ball is nothing short of remarkable.
Since we published this article there have been some changes to the Inn, notably the return of chef Michael Smith. He and his wife are now the innkeepers.
