This is the most fantastic "lodge". I fully expected a guide to knock on the door and say he was there to take me moose hunting. This place is a real gem. You won't find many like this anymore. It is huge, finished with the most amazing wood work, the hand made doors alone are something to see. There must be thirty or more hand hooked rugs that are a treasure. I think made by the housekeepers grandmother.
After I arrived I realized what a peaceful wonderful place this was and basically just sat and relaxed. I read two books (there are tons and many are books that I have had and read), 350 videos, records, tapes, you name it. I was to go to town to do some things with friends and instead just sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The kitchen is the best outfitted kitchen I've ever seen. Most places you are lucky if there is salt and pepper. There must be twenty spices for you to use, dishes galore, and a wonderful vintage kitchen table. You are close to Annapolis Royal, but be forewarned...you must just want to enjoy your "escape" and stay on the lovely property.

Everything you need, and more, is how Andi has thoughtfully prepared the delightfully decorated and cozy Wildflower Cottage for guests.
The cottage is an excellent base for exploring many regions of that end of Nova Scotia.
You can cook a full meal in the well stocked kitchen, or go to one of the fine local restaurants; you can walk the clearly groomed pathway from the cottage to the dike on the river, or tour one of the many historic sites nearby; you can catch a well produced concert 10 minutes away in Annapolis Royal or stay at "home" to read one of the multitudes of outstanding books available to match any taste.
When you decide to venture out to discover the local area, try the clams or haddock pieces at Crow's Nest for a tasty and inexpensive lunch or dinner in their very fun dining room.
Also, check out what's playing at the Kings Theatre in Annapolis Royal. We caught two super concerts: Jim Cuddy, and JP Cormier.
Watching the Fundy tide come and go was fascinating to these Albertan tourists.
Overall, Wildflower Cottage is a peaceful, lovely spot to refresh your spirit while enjoying Nova Scotia's culture and beauty.
