This property is located on the Annapolis River, at it's widest point, therefore the name Lake View as it appears to be a huge lake. (Annapolis Royal is ten minutes away.). This is a beautiful country setting. total peace and quiet.
There are seals, birds, fish, an ocasional whale. You can swim off the property. You can rent kayaks and canoes locally.
The grounds are lovely, tree shaded with numerous roses and wildflowers. Eagles on the river. Birdsong is wonderful. At night you can often hear owls hooting.
The bullfrogs at the pond are great fun to watch and listen to. There is a lobster buoy swing on a tree at the water and a garden swing at ground level under the deck. There is a firepit but must check on whether fires are banned for that day.
Lovely quiet space to wander. Dog friendly.No smoking.
This is a one bedroom cottage that has a queen bed and sitting area. Brand new kitchen appliances. Dining room table seats six. Living room has another antique table perfect for games or dining in the living room near the window overlooking the river.

Pets are welcome but there is a cleaning fee of 25 dollars. We have had to start charging for pet cleaning this year due to prior problems. We are rescue dog owners and hope you will understand. The aim of the Tree House Cottage is total relaxation and fun. Peace and quiet while there and 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. There is a landline telephone. We look forward to your stay and will do all we can to make your vacation totally enjoyable and stress free. Thank you.

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.
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. You need to climb one set of steps so not handicap accessible.
Why the Owner Chose Granville Ferry, NS, Canada:
We fell in love with the river flowing by, the constant breeze, the birds and seals, the wild roses, the peace, tranquility, and the wonderful little frog pond.
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. This is the perfect hideaway but close to everything. The moon over the river at night is magic.
