Our location makes driving from outside Atlantic Canada an easier & quicker trip.

A fully equipped self-catering kitchen has all amenities, and eating/sitting area has a gorgeous beachrock fireplace. Main floor sunroom has windows on three sides, and a large separate dining room provides space for guests, visitors, and all your projects. Immediate area showcases the pristine elegance of nature, and lawn and balcony furniture, a propane BBQ, and a children's swing/slide set take care of guests of all ages.
