OCEANFRONT ON THE BAY OF FUNDY

Pocologan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, washer/dryer, sleeps 6

This oceanfront property sits on 14 acres at the end of a ¼-mile long private drive. Sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, headlands, and islands -- and no other house in sight in any direction. There are over 700 feet of varied ocean frontage, including coves, rocks, tidal pools and a pebble beach – with a footbridge and walking path connecting all.

Each of three bedrooms has a full ocean view. There are two full baths, kitchen, living, dining and laundry rooms. The entire house was repainted and redecorated in 2003.

Property is between St. Andrews and Saint John, and about a ½ hour from each. It is also 6 miles from a provincial park with a mile long sand beach for swimming and miles of trails for hiking. Several excellent seafood restaurants nearby, and a small town for essentials is a ten minute drive.

Minimum rental period is one week.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome

Truly awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
Three letters sum up this place: WOW! Or as texters would say: OMG! Imagine being able to stand and look to the right and to the left and the only thing as far as you can see is trees, rocks and OCEAN. Fall asleep to the sounds of that ocean and awake refreshed and ready for whatever you decide to do, or not do. Add to that so much counter space in the kitchen and both bathrooms that you can unpack and move in and still have space left over. Our only regret was that without internet or local TV station to get the weather, we couldn't plan a whole day hike. We didn't discover the radio until the 3rd day and that did help a lot. If Michigan were closer to New Brunswick, we'd be there every year.

Relaxing/Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
After a long drive from CT, the minute you park in the driveway you are in for a treat. What views. From the deck, the dining area, the kitchen, the bedrooms. The sound of the water at night is so relaxing. This is a great place for anyone of any age. There is as much or as little to do as you would like. We drove north to see the Hopewell Rocks as that was the real reason behind our visit, and it was worth the drive. The pictures don't do the property justice. The property was very clean and well maintained. This was a whole family vacation w/6 adults and all agree that it was amazing. Honestly, none of us had one negative thing to say....it was a perfect week.

Great location, great house, perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
It's been about 9 months since we stayed at this property in Pocologan, so we've had plenty of time to digest the entire vacation, which I think is necessary before any review. My wife and I constantly bring up this vacation in conversation, and without a doubt, it was one of the best, most relaxing we've ever had. As a point of reference, my wife and I are both 30 and with this vacation, we were looking for a very low-key getaway. We live in Central Pennsylvania, about a 12-hour car ride from New Brunswick. We drove the long haul to Pocologan with our dog (thanks to the owner for being accommodating), and it was absolutely worth it. This house is very private and remote, which is exactly what we were looking for. Like most other reviewers, we spent most of the week at the house... reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, sitting on the decks, exploring the property, walking along the rock beach, BBQing, and watching several old VHS and DVD movies that are at the house. We did venture out to Saint John (a very cool little city), but we barely scratched the surface of all the things we could have done. For those that want to jam-pack their schedule with things to do, there are plenty of options. We mostly just wanted to unwind, and this property is perfect for that. There was another reviewer that mentioned something about the glass doors being hazy. We don't agree. The view from every room was amazing. And I think it's unfair to rate the house lower because of that, especially at this price point. There is, as others have mentioned, a fishing operation off-shore, unseen in the photos. But in our opinion, this was not a disruption at all. The boats are quite far away. And if anything, it actually made the view more interesting, as we could watch them come and go. The entire experience staying at this house was great. Another big advantage to this property is that the owner is quick to answer your questions and help you with anything you need. We've stayed in other rentals over the years, and it is 100x nicer to have an owner who truly cares about your stay. If you're looking for a quiet getaway with no hassle, we absolutely recommend this property! You won't regret it.

Thank you Doug!

What a wonderful place! Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with the rest of us :) The house was very homey and comfortable and had everything we needed. The setting is just the most amazing view in the world in a great quiet little town. We traveled 100 miles north east for a day trip and it was so easy to get around up there. We will most surely be back if you will have us :)

escape!

What a great first time cottage rental experience!
The short drive into the property off the hwy, is partially secluded so that when you finally reach the cottage, and get your first glimps of the Bay of Fundy it literally takes your breath away!
The owners have made this an awesome space for those that want a quiet retreat that feels like thier own. They have thought of the little touches..., all manner of cooking utensiles and implements, lovely "cottage" rooms each with thier own "theme", towels, BBQ, books, games, plenty of chairs on BOTH ocean view decks...there was really, nothing to want for. The property is well maintained and clean and the owners have left information for the travellers about events in the community,services and areas to explore. We must warn you however about one location in particular (which Doug thankfully gave us a heads up on) - the "evil pie lady" who is a mere 6 km down the Hwy...the pies and jams which are FANTASTIC, can be purchased for $6.00 and up, are good for at least 5 extra "holiday" pounds!!!

For those who truly would like an outdoor, nature filled, oceanside, "decompressing" vacation, this is definately the place. Thank you again to the owners for making this special retreat available to others. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken.

To say that we enjoyed our week at this beautiful house is a huge understatement. The house itself was roomy, homey, and immaculate. The kitchen was very well-stocked with pots and pans, plates, cups, cutlery, etc... and so great that it had two large bathrooms - no squabbling! The grounds were so tidy and perfect: we loved the hiking trails around the house and over the bridge. The total and complete privacy, the crash of the waves on the beach, pulling the rocks as the tide went out, just watching the lovely Atlantic... incredibly relaxing. So much so that we chose to forego many of the daytrips we had planned in favour of staying "home."

Our 12-year old son couldn't get enough of climbing all over the beach and rock faces, rockhounding, and checking out the tidepools. Our 14-year old daughter has seldom been happier than she was out there with her Nikon, she took over a thousand images!

The wildlife in the water and around the house was very obliging; we saw bald eagles (3!) every day, many times... at least one seal, 3 otters playing fairly close to shore, countless crabs on the beach and in the tide pools, a jelly, a hummingbird, and countless ducks.

We highly recommend the short drive to St. Andrews - what a beautiful town, and great shopping! We visited Saint John twice, and St. Stephen (mmmm, Ganong chocolate!). Last but not least the Blueberry People down the road - the Blueberry pies are amazing and fresh and warm... we bought jam to bring home - soo yummy. Tastes just like the pies!

The weather was incredible. It was sunny and warm 90% of the time. We had one rainy day (and one stormy night), which we took as an opportunity to visit the Museum and Mall in Saint John. There were a couple of days with foggy mornings... perfect for pictures, though! It was just the right temperature at night - warm enough to leave the windows open, but cool enough to stay under the blankets. It was a great change from the heat and humidity in Ontario.

My husband and I were most surprised at the total and utter peacefulness of our week at this house. It allowed us to truly step outside of our lives for a time, and that is priceless. Would recommend it to anyone. We hope to be lucky enough to book this wonderful vacation home again in the near future!

McCarthy's Point is in the small fishing community of Pocalogan, New Brunswick. The coast in this area of the Bay of Fundy is generally rocky, with some tall cliffs and majestic headlands. However, there is a mile long sand beach for swimming just 5 minutes drive away at New River Beach Provincial Park. A short drive away is the old Canadian resort town of St. Andrews, with golf, many restaurants, shopping and many old Victorian estates. The province's largest city - Saint John - is about 1/2 hour drive away in the opposite direction. Ten minutes away is the town of St. George, for groceries, pharmacy, etc.

Rentals are by the week only.
