La Maison Rouge (The Red House)
Beautiful house located on the southwest side of Nova Scotia on the Evangiline Trail. This area is unique to the Acadian people and their traditions. The house overlooks picturesque Baie St. Marie (St. Mary's Bay) which includes a view of Digby Neck that is 7 miles across the water. There is an accessable beach across the street that you can call your own! Sea birds, rocks and shells are in abundance as well as spectacular sunsets.
There are magnificent views from every room in the house and a sunset over the bay. All the rooms are clean, fully furnished and well kept.
The property stretches 3 acres in the back of the house and there is a small trail, up the driveway, that leads to fields of wild flowers, native birds and a small bog.
The downstairs consist of a kitchen, laundry room, bedroom, full bathroom, den and living room. The garage is connected to the house and opens into the kitchen via mud room. The kitchen windows show off the bay and a beautiful stone church that is a must to see.
The upstairs has two bedrooms and a complete bathroom with ample closet space and cozy nooks .
The linens are provided and line dried by the wind and sun!
The house is located in an area perfect for day trips. Annapolis Royal is 45 minutes away and is a quaint town rich with history , an amusement park and unique shops. Digby is 20 minutes away and has a fishing fleet that boast the best scallops in the world. On Saturdays there is a farmers market down the road that sells organic vegetables, homemade jam & jelly as well as hormone free meats. There are local artisans that sell art work, quilts and wood carvings. A basket of brochures will welcome you to get acquainted with what the area has to offer. There are a number of festivals and concerts that are worth viewing.(esp. July & August)

I have been going to this house since I was a little girl. My parents bought it from my great uncle and we used it as a summer home . It was so exciting as the days led up to our trip. We lived in the city and when we would get off the ferry the smell of the ocean and fresh air was thrilling! Our times there were filled with family , festivals and good food! As a family we would take day trips to various spots. No matter where we went we always found friendly people who were more then willing to answer our questions and guide us around the area. My parents did leave the city and made the house they're for many years. I live in Cape Cod Ma and I can't wait to get away from the hectic summers !Now I visit with my family and the circle goes round. Come share in the experience . You will be glad you did!
Paulette Jacinto purchased this house in 1958
Great location for day trips or just to kick back and relax!
The views from all the rooms are amazing! The beach is across the street and if you walk down there you may see pheasants that nest in the tall grass.There is a great 3 mile walking trail down the road that winds around bay St. Marie. It is so peaceful and there are wild flowers and birds everywhere. On Friday evenings they have a lobster/crab boil complete with Acadian music and saturday mornings a farmers market.
We had a great stay at l'ecole rouge. Every day we awoke to the most amazing views. We had great fun watching the fishermen and the birds on the ocean. The property is clean and well maintained. We had 6 adults stay. There was a lot of room for everyone and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The owner was very easy to reach and answered all of questions.
A clean and comfortable home for 6-8 people.
Pebble beach across the house is decent, we had a good time 'claiming' and a wonderful time roasting marshmallows by a camp fire at night.
The location is convenient, be sure to take a walk down Belliveaus Cove (<5m), the view is breathtaking and spend an afternoon picnic at Mavillette beach (~30m) - so wide and long it's truly amazing, the water was warm enough for a swim in the late afternoon when the tide come back up on the sun baked sand! The trail behind the Tourist Info Center/Sainte-Anne University (~10m) was lovely too, you will see some cranes and various types of plants, well labelled with the names of Canadian provinces.
We really enjoyed this home. We spent time talking to the locals who were very informative and friendly!! They taught us a bit about the lobster industry and taught us how to find clams when the tide was out!! The house was clean and suited our family of eight just fine! We thought that the house was right by the water, but it actually is a 5 minute walk to get to the water as right across from the house, there is no direct access. It is a good spot for a quiet vacation.
We were two couples in our 70's. One bedroom is downstairs and two upstairs. We spent our days traveling from Middleton to the East to Yarmouth to the Southwest. Along the way we saw amazing sites and learned a great deal about Nova Scotia. The house was perfect for our needs. The laundry room is just off the kitchen. The house was clean and well outfitted. The beds were very comfortable and there were even two TV's in case we wanted to watch different things at the end of very busy days. (I think we only watched the TV one evening.) It is within 30 minutes of a number of good resturants, grocery stores and ice cream parlors. We brought home three 2# lobsters for dinner one evening. The view from the front room is breath taking. We would recommend this house for families, senior citizens or anyone interested in a central, but quiet location, to spend a week or more in Nova Scotia.
We had a great vacation in this area - close enough to different spots but remote enough to take time and unwind. Perfect blend. Staying at a house is so much better than a hotel! Thank you, Sandra
We (two 65ish couples) stayed at La Maison Rouge for a wonderful week of exploring the Acadian region. The two hundred year old house is very well appointed & located in the heart of true Acadian country. It was very clean & well attended. We had fun getting to know some of the locals, including Charlaine who was our contact for any concerns. The views of Baie St. Marie from the cozy den & parlour are stunning. It does take a little driving to get to towns or restaurants, but it is well worth it. We tooka a day trip down the other side of the bay and enjoyed Digby Neck, the ferries and the islands, as well as several parks along the Bay of Fundy. Annapolis-Royal has a wealth of historical sites & there are good restaurants in all of the little towns. A visit to the Acadian exhibit at the University of St. Anne is also a must. Very little cell phone, or wifi contact, but this is to be expected given the remoteness of the area. The house has TV and a local phone. So we didn't feel isolated & could leave an emergency contact for those who might need to reach us. All in all it was a wonderful experience.
Great for day trips to Lighthouse Trail. Enjoy historic guides at Fort Anne in Annapolis Valley. Features night tours through historic cemetery. Children and adults will love to visit Clements Park and Zoo where the closing of the park included a performance at the outdoor theater.
