This is our 5th year in Fundy. The first year we stayed in a cottage just outside of town, followed by: tent, camper, motel. Basically, we have done it all!
We are so pleased to have found Lee's house this year.
In reading the other reviews, we had small reservations based on those reviews and I don't feel they were fair about the house so I'd like to tell you about our experience.
The minute we walked into the house we were smitten, the sun porch at the front become the area we all congregated.
Yes the kitchen is small it is advertised as galley and that is what it is, however, it is very well equipped and it was all we needed. Each morning we would get coffee at Kelly's Bake Shop and I'd cook breakfast. After breakfast we packed our lunch for the day of adventure and head out. If you're doing Fundy right, then you'll be too tired to cook supper so you'll make your way to Sapranos for pizza or to the take out across the road for the most delicious seafood chowder (I think it's called Harbourside take out). We also enjoyed listening to music with a cold beverage at the Octopus's Garden.
The house is large with a bathroom with shower downstairs and bathroom with bathtub upstairs.
We used the formal dining room one night to play board games. That was fun!
The house was rebuilt in 1927 and it needs to be appreciated as such, it's 90 years old and has incredible character and many original antiques.
There are working skeleton keys in some of the doors, the kids loved that feature!
The sunroom, I know I mentioned it, but it's worth talking about again in more detail. The entire front and sides of the sunroom are all large windows, the sunroom has ample seating with wicker love seats, rocking chairs and a table set. Such a relaxing room.
We had our four teenagers with us and they loved the home and all the features and have asked if we can book again next year. Which is saying a lot since we haven't returned to the same place yet! They were creative with wifi, as each shop along the street had free wifi when they needed it :-)
Finally, the location is in the midst of the action of Alma, a very short walk to all restaurants and shops. The closest restaurant is 15 seconds away, the furthest is a 4 minutes walk. Alma is busy this time of year, but the streets empty and it's very quiet by 10:30pm so noise is not a factor by being so close to everything.
Enjoy! We sure did.
