About the Property
Perfect for family gatherings, 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 12+, full laundry.
Welcome to the perfect private oceanfront setting : Your private, gated 100 acre oceanfront peninsula awaits you and up to 9 invited guests for an unforgettable Nova Scotia holiday, celebration, meeting or reunion. This contemporary luxury estate is designed to provide expansive views of St. Mary's Bay, Petit Passage, Long Island, and Fundy Bay. It has been host to reunions, retreats, corporate meetings, family reunions, special birthdays (a 90th year celebration!), Thanksgiving (Canadian and American), Labor Day, and even a few small weddings! It comfortably sleeps 10 people with plenty of room inside and outside for everyone to gather or for everyone to get away from one another for some quiet reflection and relaxation. Although there is not a sandy beach on the property there are several nearby, perfect for beachcombing for treasures to take home to remember your maritime vacation.
When you're ready to explore you will have miles of woodland trails and the rocky shores of the property. Nearby you'll have access to sandy beaches for swimming and beach combing, whale watching, fresh seafood markets and restaurants, and world class birding.
We look forward to being your personal connection for a wonderful maritime vacation!
Please note that we rent from Sunday - Sunday during the high season from June - August.
Review from Jill in ME: Dear Chris,
Just got back from a week at the house, I'm all ready for work to begin. Drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves after a day of exploring along the rocks, visiting with the seals, whale watching, or just watching the sun set and the moon rise was just perfect! The memories will keep me until my next vacation. Reserve the third week in July for me for next year.
Review from Dee Sordillo in MA: I've re-read my journal - and my memory and my recorded word match. Both my husband and I were speechless on first seeing the location. We arrived in the dead of night and found the rooms warm and very welcoming, immaculate and every comfort item covered. But - the best awaited til morning. The spectacular view takes your breath away Every morning the same vantage point gives a totally different view and feel. My pictures cannot express the beauty. Enjoy - Enjoy - Enjoy Dee Sordillo
If you are a seafood lover, especially haddock - you'll think you are in heaven.

Why the Owner Chose Digby, NS, Canada:
Location location location! Because of where it is...At the end of the mainland. The house was specifically designed to maximize the location. When you sit in the great room, in the dining room, on the deck, or even as you open your eyes in the morning, you'll see and hear the ocean...every day. At night you'll see the stars, and if the moon is out you'll see it's reflection on the water...That is, when you look away from the crackling fire in the massive fireplace defined by its solid hand hewn timber mantle salvaged from an historic barn.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A gated entry to the private peninsula. Your own seal colony just steps away, private forest paths along the rocky seaside cliffs, a gourmet kitchen, huge dining area that comfortably seats everyone plus a lucky guest or two, an even larger deck, and enough space so everyone can be together or alone as they choose.
