Bay of Fundy - Acadia House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, sleeps 6

Located equidistant from St Andrews and Saint John New Brunswick, this waterfront home overlooks the Bay of Fundy and is close to many of the numerous, picturesque fishing villages that the New Brunswick coast is known for. Perched high above the beach, this magnificently situated home consists of a master en suite with queen bed and two guest bedrooms that share a bathroom with double sinks and a private sitting area. Additional features include a fully equipped, modern kitchen, a large open living/dining area with hardwood floors and two large decks with panoramic views of the bay, fishing weirs and the rugged New Brunswick coast.

With a cup of your favorite morning beverage, enjoy the sound of the surf while watching the sunrise from the Master Bedroom deck. Read the summer novel du jour on the private, sandy beach as the sun warms your face. Bird watching, hiking, kayaking, biking or just relaxing will make this a memorable experience.

Enjoy shopping and the remarkable restaurants in St. Andrews. Drive your car across the sandbar to visit historic Ministers Island. If you wish to stay closer to home, nearby Pennfield a local blueberry stand makes fabulous treats to tempt you. You may be surprised to find a scrumptious salmon pate and other delicacies to enjoy at Stuart's Supperette just a bit further down the road. After a delicious meal on the deck and a short walk, you can experience a spectacular sunset at New River Beach Provincial Park.

Comfortable, clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the New River Beach cottage. There were 4 adults, one couple and 2 singles all over 60. The cottage allowed for separation and privacy. All the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. (thanks, Shawnee and Doug). There was lots to do in the area but you definitely need a car. My one reservation was the access to the private beach. If you are not reasonably fit and sure footed, it was a bit of a challenge. However, on the upside, the provincial beach is less than a 15 minute walk and is absolutely gorgeous! I would definitely recommend this cottage.

Une belle semaine près de la mer

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une belle semaine en famille (3 enfants) + grands-parents. La maison était bien divisée et assez spatieuse pour accueillir tous ce beau monde! La cuisine était bien équipée pour se concocter de bons repas de fruits de mer locaux. Notre coup de coeur, l'accès à la plage...48 marches d'escaliers et voilà nous étions rendus sur la plage au grand plaisir des enfants. Ces derniers garderont surement aussi longtemps en mémoire les petis feux de camp qu'on y a fait sans oublier les guimauves!

Awesome September visit

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week with great friends! So much to do. Whale watch tour in Saint Andrews, reversing falls in Saint John, Hopewell Rocks, and Fundy Trail. Great place to really enjoy the Bay of Fundy. Loved coming back to our house each day. It is roomy, wonderfully clean, and a great kitchen to celebrate with an awesome seafood feast House sits up on a hill with great view of the bay, with steps down to a large, rocky beach. Our first day there we picked up a dinner of fresh mussels at low tide.

You HAVE to have a car here, there is nothing within walking distance, at least in September when the nearby New River Beach park is closed.

We are 3 couples who do a lot of traveling and usually rent thru VRBO. We were all very pleased when we walked into the house. It was one of the few houses we have rented that actually was nicer than the photos.

A couple of (small) criticisms: the house could use an instruction sheet (we had to blunder upon the wifi, could not get tvs to work properly) there is a minimum of washcloths, the shower in the master bathroom is tiny despite the bathroom being very large and it is a fairly long drive to get to all the amazing things to see here (but it is centrally located to the things mentioned earlier)

None of that is to say we would not hesitate to rent this house again in the future.

Be sure to visit McKay's on 175 for incredible wild blueberry pies, and if you are looking for fine dining try the Rossmount Inn near St. Andrews. It is a long drive to Hopewell Rocks, but worth it.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the view. Enjoyed the weather! And had many days on the beach. We had such a relaxing time. The home meet our expectations. Great place to go to with children. We had all the comforts of home. Kids loved picking the wild strawberries.As for me I wish I was there during blueberry season!!!The location was great for us, not to long of a drive to Saint John to visit family. Thanks Doug and Shawnwee for sharing your getaway home with us!

This place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Our first day was cloudy and cold, but we headed out to explore St.John and had a great time. The weather the next two days was beautiful and we loved being on the beach. The little restaurant down the road is wonderful, as are the Greek owners. Perfect time! We would love to go back!

Beautiful vacation home on the bay of Fundy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, this was by far the best vacation property we could of asked for. Clean, new and close to various ammenities. The pictures don't even do justice to how beautiful and clean this home is. Shawnee was always available to answer our questions and even called to make sure we were okay and that everything was alright. Comeaus was the best fried fish restaurant we have ever been too and it was just 10-15 minutes ride away we enjoyed visiting beautiful st George and deer island and we're only 15-30 minutes away from many other cities. We called this home "our not so little red house in the middle of nowhere surrounded by everything". The Messners
