About the property

Seasonal 2BR modern home, by Tom Goodwin of Ocean Explorations Whale Cruises

Located in the Village of East Ferry. Only minutes away from where the Phenomenal Bay of Fundy tides meet Saint Mary's Bay creating some AMAZING tidal action. This relaxing vacation home is in a 8-10 year old, 2 bedroom split level executive home with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

Things to do in the area:

- AMAZING WHALE WATCHING - The waters at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy from the ledges off Brier Island right up the Digby Neck are important feeding areas for many species of cetaceans (whales, dolphins, porpoises), seals and a wide variety of seabirds.

- AMAZING HIKING TRAILS - experience the rugged fundy coast and marine life hiking the trails on Long Island and Brier Island.

- AMAZING NATURAL BEACHES - You can find some quite, natural beaches along the Digby Neck for romantic walks, sunbathing, or even a 'cool' dip.

- AMAZING BIRD WATCHING - the area is reknowned for it's great bird watching and you will surely enjoy the variety whether you are an avid or casual birder.

- swimming and/or fishing at Lake Midway 10 minutes away (fishing rods supplied but you need to get your own worms)

- Golf - 40 Minutes away in Digby

- Eating Seafood

*** we get lots of inquiries from families and you are welcome, but please note, this is NOT a great swim in the ocean area *** (many families visit, but many are looking for that).

Day trip ideas:

Upper Clements Theme Park - Fun for the whole family

Kejimkujik National Park - Conoes, Kayaks and mountain bikes can be rented here and great hiking trails too.

Drive along the Acadian Shore and experience the hospitality of the descendants of the first settlers in Nova Scotia (early 1600's)

Visit the historic town of Annapolis Royal and Fort Anne

Just to name a few...

additional photos available if you email through the Ocean explorations.

About Tom Goodwin

Tom runs Ocean explorations (.ca) zodiac whale-watching in Tiverton, just across the ferry. If going in a fast open boat isn't your thing, there are other whale-watching (fishing - tour boats) companies in the area too.

Tom Goodwin purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom Goodwin chose Digby

It was a very nice house, at a good price, resulting from a divorce. The land of this property actually wraps around our home property down around the corner (NOT either neighbouring houses)

What makes this house unique

It is a very nice modern house and we have furnished it with fairly nice things.

average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

wonderful accomodating property

  • 4 of 5

Great ammenities, sketchy tv service and no wifi

But we knew that and enjoyed our stay as a whale watching was on our agenda!

Local grocery stores are limited, but fun and eclectic, so if you are staying for awhile stock up in Digby.

Owners were very gracious, and accomodating.

We had a great time..thank you Tom & Penny
