Unique Opportunity; Exceptional Value

I am very happy to see this delightful accommodation on VRBO. My husband and I stayed there in the summer and we loved the rare experience of staying at a working winery. The accommodatin is attractive, inviting and comfortable. It would easily pass the "white glove test" for cleanliness, and it has a great shower. It provided us with privacy, peace and quiet and fabulous views.
The Bear River Winery tour provided by Chris and Peggy was informative and fascinating. The interior design of the winery and shop, plus the wine tasting, added to the pleasure.
We loved walking through the vineyard to the river and relaxing on the river bank while watching the tides of Bear River rise and fall as they were influenced by the Bay of Fundy tides. We also enjoyed just wandering around the property and seeing the vegetable and flower gardens and the fruit trees and bushes.
Chris and Peggy were an excellent source of suggestions for shopping, sightseeing and dining in Bear River and the many interesting and lovely places within easy driving distance. We enjoyed all of that, but the part we enjoyed most was being in a place where we could "get off the power grid," and enjoy all the nature and tranquility surrounding us while staying in a very comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Our only regret was not having more than 5 days to enjoy this unique opportunity.
