Come and relax in a home originally built by a shipbuilder in the community of St. Martins/West Quaco in 1850. The original structure remains and many additions and upgrades have been made. From the front deck, enjoy a 180 degree panoramic view of the Bay and Anvil Rock, marvel at the strength of the Bay of Fundy as it fills in the Bay before you and the marsh behind you at high tide. The home is like a floating oasis at high tide.
Cross the road to the beach where you can paddle board at high tide or if you wish to stick closer to home, you can paddle board in the marsh behind the house. The same beach and marsh will open up at low tide and allow you to discover the mysteries left behind by the receding waters. Each day is different and the unique experience will draw you back to the Bay of Fundy year after year.
The front deck and back of the home also allow for wonderful bird watching. You may even be lucky enough to spot a bald eagle. The Fundy Trail or kayaking with the local company in the town of St. Martins will also allow for wildlife sightings.
Be sure to experience the Sea Caves as well at low tide. The two restaurants located beside the Sea Caves will serve you up some great fish and chips and sea food chowder. The lighthouse located next to the home allows you to watch the forces of the tides as they duel with each other during the changing of the tides. Brown's Beach is also a must see.
If you love to hike, do not miss Giffin Pond Rd. Located at the end of Quaco Rd, this trek will take you to a fresh water pond laying beside the ocean. Rock formations in this area and Brown's Beach are a must see.
Finally, bring a book and relax or dedicate some time to writing. The rhythm of the tides and the beauty of the local people will force you to gear down. The gem of this community is that it has remained true to its roots and its vision. Come and experience it. You will leave an enriched person.+ More
