Golfing and freshwater swimming are available within a 10 minute drive.

A perfect spot to vacation.

Step back in time to the charm and comfort of a log home without having to leave behind the modern conveniences that make for easy living!

Relax and Enjoy the View

Hiking, Walking And Beach Combing

The movement of the tides in the bay of Fundy are estimated to be in the order of 100 billion tons of water each tide. This amazing phenomenom has earned the Bay of Fundy a finalist position in world wide voting for the seven natural wonders of the world.This is truly a world class destination

As the tide falls kilometers of beach are available for walking and beach combing. The geology of the area as well as the local ocean life, provide for many interesting discoveries whether you opt for a short stroll, a long walk or a serious hike. While shells, interestingly shaped or colored rocks and genuine fossils are a given, for those with the beach combing spirit, one never know what treasures the constantly changing tide and waves may have washed up into your path.

As a result of the tidal action and its eroding affect on the shoreline banks,the geological records is in plain view. Here you can se the efects of the ages as the earth was built up and eroded back. See where water and air action have layed down distinct layers in the rock. The folding of the these layers bears testinemt to the tremendouse forces of geological time. Fossils on these beaches date back 300 million years!Cottage is available from April until December.

For pricing information please contact us. We look forward to speaking with you!

Wish you were here...The Cove itself offers over 800 feet of very secluded beach front. Bring your beach chair, a cooler with your favorite snacks and refreshments and just relax! Surrounded by incredible scenery, enjoy the sun and the cooling ocean breeze. A more peaceful location would be hard to find!

Situated on the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy provides the opportunity for swimming in calm ocean waters. The pebble and shale beach provide easy access to some of the warmest salt water north of the Carolinas. First timers and folks with tender tootsies, will probably want to bring water shoes to make for more comfortable footing as you move in and out of the water.

The rise and fall of the tides is an awesome sight. This incredible process results in the water receding several kms every 12 hours, exposing the ocean floor to view and exploration. Although attention must be paid to the tide cycles, there is ample opportunity to explore what in other circumstances would be the domain of trained scuba divers!

The cove also boasts it own private tide pool. As the tide rises this pool fills up and provides a multitude of opportunities for water fun for all ages. The very young can safely enjoy the very gentle sloping shore at the tail of the pool and find refuge from the summer sun in the cool shade provided as the Acadian forest sweeps down to meet the sea. Should you have more adventurous water play in mind, the head of the pool offers opportunities to jump from the bank and float with the current as it carries you safely to the tail of the pool.

Rather swim in freshwater? A short drive will bring you to a picturesque swimming hole. This reclaimed limestone quarry has crystal clear spring fed waters with safe, easy access for water fun for all ages. This site is maintained by the local Municipality and boasts plenty of parking. Washrooms and change rooms have been provided. The grassy shores and the surrounding hardwood forest make this a very pleasant spot.

Great cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! Our kids enjoyed exploring the bay and I appreciated the cabin. Everything we needed was there, from beds with linens already made to a nice assortment of dishes & kitchen utensils. The owners were very helpful and so nice. We felt at home & it was a great spot.
