The Annapolis Royal area is that special kind of place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memory. Cradled within a land and seascape of serene natural beauty, the region rests in the palm of a long glacial valley severed by the Annapolis River and Tidal Basin. Buffered by two mountain ridges on the north and south, the land on either side of the river widens into a broad swath of salt marsh and cultivated earth. Over the North Mountain lies the Bay of Fundy and to the south, an expanse of lakes, a national park and protected wilderness areas. The region’s cultural hub, the town of Annapolis Royal, is one of the Maritimes most culturally diverse and welcoming communities. With its beautifully preserved historic and architectural legacy of Victorian, Georgian and Arts & Crafts homes, it is the perfect backdrop to the artistic energy emanating from the town’s waterfront shopping district, art galleries, farmers’ market, gardens and theatre. Recently named to the top 12 list of This Old House’s “Best Old-House Neighborhoods,” Annapolis Royal also garnered praise by the CBC as one of the Maritimes top ten “most engaging and culturally dynamic communities.” Last year the Canadian and International Garden Tourism Awards lauded the town’s Historic Gardens as one of the “Top five North American Gardens Worth Travelling For.”
Things to see and do:
Wildflower Cottage is a wonderful place for relaxing after a day of activities, which could include birding and whale watching, hiking, kayaking, bicycling and beachcombing. The Annapolis French Basin Marsh is great place for birding, particularly during migratory months. Whale watching tour boats in nearby Digby Neck will show you whales and other Atlantic marine wildlife including seals and sea birds in their natural habitat. The Shore Road is a beautiful drive winding along the Bay of Fundy coast and features three lighthouses, seven cobble beaches, five fishing wharves, and a seafood market at Parker's Cove. There are nearby provincial parks, nature preserves, and art galleries that you can visit. Kejimkujik National Park with many levels of hiking trails, is a 35-minute drive and offers canoe and kayak rentals. The O'Dell Museum, Sinclair Museum and North Hills Museum showcase local history. The area has two 18-hole golf courses. There are music concerts and films at King's Theatre, a chocolatier shop and a variety of restaurants for eat-in or take out. The Farmers' Market across from the Annapolis Wharf runs Weds. and Sats. all summer.
Visit Upper Clements Adventure Park with 30 rides and a challenging wooded zip-line course or hike along the spectacular Delaps Cove Trail on the Bay of Fundy. Spend the day at nearby Raven Haven Beach. Take in an art workshop or coffeehouse evening at ArtsPlace, the region's public art gallery. Join a Candlelight Grave Tour at Fort Anne National Historic Park or meet the 'ghosts' at the Sinclair Museum.

About the owner: I'm a photographer, writer, part-time painter and field naturalist. I fell in love with Nova Scotia many years ago, pulled up roots in New England and moved here permanently. The land and water scape, open skies and natural vistas replenish me every day. I feel so fortunate to be able to call this friendly and bucolic corner of the world my year round home. Hope you'll visit us soon!
Why the Owner Chose Granville Ferry, NS, Canada:
Sharing this beautiful cottage with guests is a labor of love for me. My husband and I live on the other side of this large waterfront property, though the cottage has its own private setting on 15 acres. Native wildflowers, mature maple, mountain ash and conifers surround the cottage. The views from the cottage evoke a classic landscape painting. Simply stunning. There's a beautiful river and marsh walk right near the cottage that tells a fascinating story of the region's rich agricultural and architectural history. Throughout the cottage, I focus on letting in the light and bringing out its unique farmhouse features. Local art and pottery grace the walls. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is roomy and well-stocked. In short, Wildflower Cottage is a charmer!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Great location to town, outdoor activities, restaurants and parks; very comfortable seating; whimsical, artistic touches throughout; well-equipped kitchen, a wonderful place to photograph and paint, Certified Monarch Waystation, very private, gorgeous view with an amazing historic barn crowning the landscape.
