Property description

I would like to welcome you and your family to stay with me at my home.I am offering this house as a unit with three bedrooms . One couple can rent the entire house for themselves at this price or it can accommodate up to six guests at one time as a group for the night. I am inspected by the New Brunswick Tourism , N.B. Approved program and have been in business for over fourteen years. I offer a very friendly, relaxing, comfortable and clean accommodations for those travelling in our scenic area. Located centrally between 2 main areas- Saint John the city and St. Martins the village makes my spot a great place to plan day trips in either direction and return home at night for a very quiet and restful sleep. I am about a 30 minute drive east of Saint John and about a 20 minute drive to St. Martins. I am out in the country, next to the Bay of Fundy on the Fundy Scenic Route 825. Gardner Creek, is the name of our wonderful little area, so friendly and peaceful and has some of the best views of the Bay and surrounding coastline of the area. From every window in my house one can look out and see the Bay because we are out on a peninsula which sticks out off the main coast of the mainland.
Lots of space to roam around outside on our property with gardens and decks and patios equipped with chairs and tables, hiking along our country roads is a favourite of our guests. Many attractions in and around the area in both directions. Sea caves, covered bridges, sandy beaches, seafood restaurants and lobsters catched and sold on a wharf nearby, museums, shopping, water attractions, jet boat rides through our reversing falls in Saint John, Zoo, Golf, and your regular attractions that most places offer.
I offer three bedrooms / two with one double bed in each and the third room has two twin beds in it. I am offering this house as a unit of three bedrooms if three are needed or can be rented nightly by a couple if they want their privacy for the same price.
With this price a full home made country breakfast is served from a menu, any time after 7:30 am. Guests also have full use of the kitchen to cook food in for themselves if they like to bring in something to cook. A washer and dryer also available which can be a big help when travelling. High speed wireless internet throughout the house, along with many other amenities to make your stay more enjoyable.
I am called a Tourist Home, because I do not live in this house which I rent out to guests. I live right next door in my own home. In the evenings after 6:00 pm. I go home and the guest have the house to themselves until I return in the morning to cook and clean up for the day. Everyone has their own house key to come and go as they please and locks of coarse on every bedroom door. it has worked out so well over all the years , people just love it.Having their privacy in the evening with their family and friends. Great for families travelling together like grand parents and their families.
I open my gallery and small store which is on the lower level of the house after 1:00 pm. and this lets me be there to get my work done and also be there to welcome my guests. Store closes after 6:00 pm. through out the week. In my gallery I offer paintings prints and cards and different items hand painted by myself.We also sell antiques in the gallery. I have been painting since I was a small child and that wasn't yesterday!!
If you have never been to the coast of the Bay of Fundy, you won't be disappointed. The coming and going of our tides is spectacular
and the height that the water can reach is mind boggling. To see the floor of the Bay one minute and them look out and see how much it changes in such a short time makes people amazed. Living here all my life, it still takes my breath away to wake up to a fantastic sunrise over the Bay and then watch the colors reflect on the water in the evening sunsets. Just the sound and the smell of the waves crashing along the shores puts you in another place of peace and tranquility. I think I can offer some of the freshest salty air one could possible breathe .As you can tell I am a bit proud of where I live. You won't be disappointed I guarantee!
Whale watching is another popular event that people love to partake in and it is offered in an area just south of us along the coastal drive coming up from the USA. Sea Kayaking is another fun activity offered up in St. Martins. The Fundy Trail Parkway,is by far one of the nicest newer parks to travel through to see in New Brunswick it offers beautiful hiking and biking trails and for travelers going through in their cars. Breathtaking scenery and miles of unspoiled terrain to explore. A guest could spend a full day up there no problem.
Come join us and live the Maritime experience while your on holidays.
Let my home, be your home, away from home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am married with three grown children. Have been self employed for over twenty years. Operating and owning the Tourist Home and gallery for the last fifteen years. This was my family homestead which I grew up in and when I took it over I decided to share it with the rest of the world and let others enjoy its charm and character. I have renovated it over the years to make it more updated for my guests and have enjoyed the whole process . Meeting all the different guests from all over the world makes it stay fresh and fun and you are always wondering where my next couple is coming from? Being an artist for over forty years has been my biggest pleasure and gives me an outlet to express myself and to relax with over the years. I love to paint pictures that people can relate to or means something to a person for some reason of their own. I do a lot of commission work for people of the area and also have sold countless numbers of paintings overseas and in the United States. I get great satisfaction from knowing that a little piece of me is all around the world on someone's wall in their home or office. I do not get much chance to travel myself but love to hear from others about different areas from around the world. Maybe someday my ship will come in and I will travel like those who have passed through my doors. I always say living here satisfies my needs for life. I love and own a small dog, not quite sure what its breed,but love it dearly and she loves to visit with my guests too. Children just love her. My family is number one and I'm fortunate to have them all living handy in our area. Now a grandmother for the first time makes it even nicer that they are close by. I guess being around people is what I feed off of, whither it is for conversation or getting an idea for a painting, I am a people person. My Mother always said if you have something worth sharing a person should share it with others. I took on this project in memory of her and my father.

Why the Owner Chose Gardner Creek, NB, Canada:
I did not purchase this home. It was left to me from my parents and the location is so spectacular it made perfect sense to do this with the old farm house. High on a hill overlooking the beautiful Bay of Fundy, in a peaceful, caring community. The old farm house was designed so well to do something like this that it all worked out in the long run. A few new renovations in bathrooms and new kitchen updates made it work. People love the space and quietness that it offers to them. I had one guest sitting out in the chairs on my veranda one morning meditating as the sun came up over the bay and he said he had not experienced another situation like this in his travels for a long time. That made me feel so good for him and the fact that I had decided to do this for others to enjoy. Big cities are great but sometimes you just need to get out of that noise and confusion and take time to breathe.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Home cooked breakfast is always a big hit for my guests, everything is homemade right down to the homemade bread and jams offered. I always have homemade sweets in the kitchen for them to snack on throughout the day and tea and coffee. The quietness of the evening is another big bonus and not having to get up too early if you want to sleep in for a change is nice for some. Being so handy to either areas or even outside of this range, one can be in Sussex or St. Stephens within an hour or so which is nice when you want to do day trips here and there. Everyone is treated like family or a friend while staying so just be yourself and we'll be fine.Our Maritime hospitality is our biggest feature. Having full use of the kitchen to cook for yourselves throughout the day is a big plus for a lot of my travellers especially with children travelling with them. Helps to cut costs so one can go and enjoy some of the finer things we have to offer. The laundry is available to my guests too and we have a clothes line outside where they can if they want to hang out their clothes to get that fresh salty air smell. Quite a treat to someone who lives in the city and maybe came from an area years ago that had a clothes line. I hang most of my linens out there daily to dry for the bedding on the beds upstairs.There is a dryer for days that one is too busy or too wet. I would not live any where else. I grew up in this house and it has been passed down and down generations to me and I guess they all felt the same way. Lots of history and memories held in the walls in the old house. It has a charm and warmth as soon as you enter the front door. They don't make them like they did 200 years ago. all original woodwork and pretty much the same layout with just a few updates throughout to make it comfortable for my guests. Working small farm at one time and a history of shipbuilding in the area makes for great stories to relate to guests if they are interested in hearing them.
