We at Turning Tides know that people are going through a lot right now. We want to encourage folks to: get out of their apartments, get out of the city, stay safe and sane somewhere you can have some space! Use our kayaks to enjoy the famous Bay of Fundy that’s located steps away. Or take in the tides from the back deck while you BBQ some dinner. Come have a fire! Sit and watch the entertaining (and adorable) animals we have. Come Enjoy!
“Turning Tides was charming, tidy, and overall a great place to spend a summer vacation. We kayaked, enjoyed some BBQ, and had a camp fire. We had some issued with the Wi-Fi (as warned in the ad) but we came prepared with a few movies downloaded. Otherwise, the space was fully equipped with everything we needed. Doug was a responsive and helpful host. As a note to any potential kayakers, pay attention to the tide cycle. Avoid kayaking around low tide as getting the kayaks in/out of the water will be way more work than it needs to be!”
This one bedroom waterfront apartment is located on St Andrew's historic Water Street behind a retail shop, Cottage Chic. Sunset views from the deck overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay, Navy Island and the Maine coast. Beach access provides easy access for kayaking or beach combing. Very private yet steps away from the town wharf and other attractions, shopping and restaurants. Includes wifi, basic cable, and Apple TV.
“Beautiful place. Great location. Nice views. No parking, but you can park down the street or around the corner if you can find a spot. Ideal location for a light packer travelling without children. Not an ideal location for family’s with small children which in my experience would have lots of baggage and need to make several trips to unpack their vehicle and walk a few streets each time to get back to the place.”
Oceanfront property located in St. George NB overlooking two breathtaking private beaches on the beautiful Fundy Bay Coast. Nestled at the end of the road on a very private and safe 5 acre oceanfront property. Relax and take in the natural scenery
“My wife and I were blessed to enjoy this cozy cottage with its idyllic location on Paradise Point and thank Shannon and her family for the warm hospitality and for allowing others to experience the exquisite views and fabulous location on the Bay of Fundy. Pictures cannot do justice to the cottage, the amazing views and the smells of the ocean and pine forests. It truly is a little piece of Paradise. The location gives one a true sense of solitude and offers breathtaking views of the bay with its gorgeous sunsets, and daily variation from overcast and foggy to brilliant son and blue skies due to the dynamic weather patterns. As the cottage is located at the end of an isolated peninsula with water on three sides it gives one the sense of actually being on the water. It is amazingly private and quiet with the only sounds coming from the variety of sea birds, fishing boats coming and going as they tend the Atlantic salmon aquaculture, and of course the gentle sound of the sea lapping on the shore and the breeze in the pines. Bald eagles frequently perched in the trees or the rocks directly in front of the cottage. Deer come into the yard and a fox visited one evening. The sea level changes are dramatic with local tidal level variations of up to 6 meters offering tide pools for exploring and impressive viewing. There is a private secluded beach on one side of the cottage that becomes quite large at low tide. The cottage was spotless, special thanks to Shannon’s daughter, as I later learned. It is both welcoming and charming with everything one needs to settle in and make this home while visiting including warm bedding, linens and towels as well as a washer and dryer. The cottage has a spacious deck for viewing the bay, a gas barbecue for grilling, and windows in every room all providing outstanding views. Shannon provides a most helpful binder with excellent and well organized suggestions and lists of everything one needs including specific instructions and contact information. She and her family live only a short distance away, and she welcomes her guests to stop by and meet her family at their convenience. She is most gracious and supportive and prompt in her response to any and all requests while respecting her guest’s private time. We ate the majority of our meals in the cottage which is well stocked with all items necessary for cooking. All appliances were in good working order and there is ample hot water and electric heaters to keep the cottage warm and comfortable on the cooler days and nights. As Shannon notes there is a smart TV with Netflix and YouTube, and the Wifi works extremely well. The local market, and speciality shops (with fresh seasonal seafood, excellent smoked salmon and fresh baked goods and fudge) will meet all your basic needs. The location facilitated easy access to St Andrews by the Sea (which offers whale watching, fine art and craft galleries and many shops) and St Stephens (Ganong world famous chocolate factory and museum)as well as the larger city of Saint Johns for any and all needs. The scenery in Saint Johns is highlighted by the reversing falls of the Saint John River (there is an excellent viewing structure with an excellent restaurant overlooking this reversal). There is a major highway facilitating easy access to adjacent cities with distances ranging from forty kilometers for St Andrews to seventy five kilometers for Saint John. I enjoyed attending local churches for services and breakfasts at the historic Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrews. We were fortunate to visit the cottage at the peak of the fall transformation of the deciduous tree leaves with the trees displaying the full spectrum of fall splendor guaranteeing truly spectacular views sure to amaze even the most discerning of us ‘leaf peepers’. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage and highly recommend it to others seeking to get away from the normal hustle and bustle and immerse themselves in the beauty of nature and the serenity of the ocean at Paradise Point, it is sure not to disappoint. Sincere thanks to Shannon and her family for sharing the cottage in this uniquely beautiful location. We feel especially blessed to have discovered the cottage at Paradise Point and for having been allowed to experience this amazing location and all it has to offer.”
