                          The aim of the Tree House Cottage is total relaxation and fun. Peace and quiet while there but an amazing amount of things to do and see in the area if you so chose. This is a place to "get away from it all", therefore there is not any tv or internet. So far everyone has been quite happy without it.

                          Annapolis Royal is the second oldest permanent settlement in North America, settled in 1605. St. Augustine, Florida, is first (Spanish). The English built Fort Anne and the French built Port Royal, both National HIstoric Sites that can be visited. It's fun to roll down the ramparts at Fort Anne. Nearby is an old graveyard and the Graveyard Tour by Lantern is fun and educational as well. One of Champlain's men is buried here. At the time the French owned all the way to Philadelphia. Strolling thru town you will see beautiful preserved Victorian homes and inns. Wonderful restaurants in all price ranges are all within the walking area. The boardwalk along the river from Fort Anne to the lighthouse and King's Theater is a wonderful spot to meander. The Farmers Market is on Saturdays and Wednesdays, featuring not only locally grown produce but also many fine craftsmen, potters, artists, weavers, jewelry makers. Across from the market is the working boat haulout. Further along is O'Dell House a historic house of the l800's. Across Parker Mountain are the various working lobster wharfs. Here you can buy fresh lobsters, scallops, fish, dulse. or purchase cooked lobsters to take on a picnic. I own a Victorian home overlooking the wharf where you can picnic. Digby is nearby with it's famous scallop fleet. Bear River, featured in New York Times, is built on stilts and has a fantastic nationally known gallery with huge collection of artists. Retaurants here also are built on stilts due to the tidal surges in the river. Further south is the French shore and you are welcomed to try their famous Rappie Pie, which takes 24 hours to make. The Dewlaps Wilderness Trail and the Historic Gardens are both nationally famous and worth a visit.

                          Upper Clements Park is an old time amusement park, wooden roller coaster, lots of grass and water, rides for all ages, music every day. This year they've added an adventure park with zip line designed by a French expert. Swimming and canoeing and kayaking are available at all the many lakes. Better yet, just relax at home and enjoy the gardens and river.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We purchased this property because of it's natural beauty. It has total privacy but is only about ten minutes from the lovely historically preserved town of Annapolis Royal. So you have the best of both country and town. We have remodeled the two story barn buiding into a lovely brand new one bedroom property with decks and fantastic views to the water.

                          Why the Owner Chose Annapolis Royal:
                          We fell in love with the river flowing by, the constant breeze, the birds and seals, the wild roses and the peace and tranquility.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          You take a dirt road thru wild roses and trees and marsh to the property which is located on the Annapolis River at it's widest point. It is therefore called a lake and the address is Lake View Avenue. You have easy access to Annapolis Royal, Bear River, Digby,Wolfville, Grand Pre, Kedjimikujik National Park, the French Shore, Whale Watching on Digby Neck and many other things too numerous to mention.
