About the Property

2 bedrooms, sleeps 4, plus pull out couch , compl bathroom plus washer/dryer

'Brightwater Cottage' is a 2 bedroom retreat with privacy, quiet and an exhilarating ocean view. There is room for children to play freely and safely in the pasture below. They will find fairies and their partly hidden houses near the cottage, and they may visit our friendly chickens and look for eggs. Hosts Kathi and Jim are both artists and their work is displayed at their shop at the harbor wharf,'Salty Dog Arts'. Kathi grows an organic garden where guests can shop for the freshest in vegetables and berries, eggs from free range hens, and the most delicious jams and jellies.The footpath to the quiet unmarked beach is a 1 km drive or walk to the dead end of the lane. At low tide there is a wide expanse of sand and lots of room for kids to run and play.


Brightwater is a half-hour drive from the St John airport and 5 minutes out of the Village of St Martins. In the village are twin covered bridges spanning an active fishing harbor, lighthouses, famous sea caves, a shipbuilding museum, sea kayaking and great seafood, family and fine dining, and a busy sunday afternoon Farmer's Market. The nearby Fundy Trail offers world-class hiking/biking along the coastline where you'll witness the ebb and flow of the world's highest tides.
