Known as the “Switzerland of Nova Scotia”, the picturesque town of Bear River offers quaint cottage rentals along its namesake river and in the surrounding hills. Located in close proximity to Kejimjukik National Park and National Historic Site of Canada, the only Canadian site to receive this dual designation, visitors to the region can experience natural and cultural heritage via hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and the Mi’kmaw petroglyphs.
Bear River and the surrounding Annapolis Highlands produce award-winning wines that can be sampled on outings to various regional vineyards. The town is also home to a thriving artistic community, making it an ideal place to shop for arts and crafts, such as quilts, pottery, and woodwork.
Only a two-and-a-half hours drive from Halifax Bear River is a charming riverside community, and a popular place to rent a cottage in Nova Scotia.+ More
