Wolfville House Rental Photos and Description

2+ bedrooms. one full & one half bathrooms, sleeps 4 - 6.

A delightfully located & historic, 230 year old, 'Country Georgian' home next to farmland & bordering on the Habitant River estuary on the edge of the historic Acadian hamlet of Habitant, near the old village of Canning. Beautifully situated on the quiet & pretty road to Kingsport, near the Blomidon Ridge Winery (open on Sundays!), the house is surrounded by open farm fields & natural woodland through which flows a year-round brook emptying into the Habitant estuary & its enveloping saltmarsh. Wildlife & migratory birds abound. Wolfville & Kentville with all services, Acadia University & Colleges lie within an easy 15 minute (12 km.) drive; downtown Metro Halifax & the International Airport is an hour & a quarter (120 km.) trip. It is an ideal location for both a restful, quiet vacation with peaceful fields with an abundance of wildlife; active in that the paved roads & paths around are ideal for biking, hiking and touring. See our website link under the 'Further Details' section.

A fine red sand beach is nearby with safe bathing for families or for just watching the magnificent world-record tides of the Fundy shore breathe in and out daily. The sunsets over Cape Blomidon and the North Mountain are magnificent. Biking, kayaking, and hiking. There are 3 public golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Fresh lobster dining by the Fundy shore.

Nature walks are held regularly by the Blomidon Naturalists Society, or go for drives, soaking in the peaceful scenery. The Annapolis Valley is famous for its apples, fruits and fragrant spring orchards. The Apple Blossom Festival is held at the end of May each year, with a parade and music events. Visit the Organic Farmers Market in Wolfville on Saturdays throughout the summer and fall. Excellent massage therapists in the area. In the winter, the area is famous for eagle watching and cross-country skiing. Sleigh rides are available locally, and Martock ski hill is 40 minutes drive away. There are modern hospital facilities and shopping centres 15 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Lowden House Farm in the Annapolis Valley for 2 months.



We really loved the setting of the place and the wonderful trails at the back..my dogs and myself had the must wonderful time in those trails. Since, we moved permanently in Nova Scotia..although our farm is the most lovely farm that you can find..I and my dogs miss the our trail walks at the Lowden House Farm for sure!!
