Annapolis Royal cottage description

Welcome to St. Alban’s Vacation Home.

We are thrilled that you have found your way to our website and to St. Alban’s. Please have a look around while imagining yourselves nestled into our beloved summer retreat. We recently acquired St. Alban’s with the idea that we would enjoy it for ourselves and take a few weeks each summer to share it with visitors to this beautiful part of Nova Scotia. We offer very reasonable rates and standard policies.

This converted church is indeed a special place. We see it as an adult oasis, a home away from home and a retreat for those needing a good break from city-life or the fast-paced work world. St. Alban’s is situated along a scenic country road just a couple of minutes from Annapolis Royal, in the heart of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. Our 2.5 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home has all the amenities, and more…including serenity, comfort and convenience!

The home, itself, boasts a gourmet kitchen, spa-like bathroom, private bedrooms and old world charm with modern conveniences and spacious living. St. Alban’s has been professionally decorated, by us, with the modern vacationer in mind. Eating in? Enjoy professional grade cookware and high-end appliances. Dining out? We will provide you with our own personal recommendations of local cuisine.

St. Alban’s pastoral setting blends perfectly with the natural beauty of the Annapolis Basin and the Lequille River. For the hiker or cyclist, there is much to explore. If you wish to spend a day “in town” there is lots to see and do in Annapolis Royal. Take in a sweeping view of the beautiful Annapolis Basin from the centre of Annapolis Royal at Fort Anne, Canada’s oldest national historic site. There are shops, historical walks, a beautiful waterfront, and much more. The Annapolis Valley is also home to some of the best and most interesting antique shops in Nova Scotia. Be sure to take Route 1 heading to Bridgetown and visit some of our favourite shops such as ‘The Green Barn’, ‘Treasures and Collectibles’ (hi to Norm) and especially ‘Summer House Antiques’ (tell Eric we sent you). As you can tell, there is no shortage of things to see and do during your stay at St. Alban’s Vacation Home. But if all you are looking for is time away to relax and unwind, then St. Alban’s is perfect.

We invite you to experience what we can only say is “the best decision we have ever made!

                                    Gorgeous woodwork, beautiful high ceilings--a perfect blend of classical and modern styling (i.e. modern kitchen & bathroom). Between the peaceful, sunny silence in the church and the quaint charm of the nearby Annapolis Royal, it was like taking a vacation in an Austen novel. Everything was exceptionally clean and well-maintained; customer service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking for an East Coast escape.

                                    The Church is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Lots of space with modern amenities, filled with little touches of its days as a church. Can honestly say I have never stayed in a vacation rental as unique and fun as the Church. Will most definitely stay here again in the future. Additionally, the hosts are fantastic which made the visit that much better.
