The space
This is a fabulous property, now a boutique resort, with gardens, outbuildings, and fruit trees. Take your coffee on a morning walk through the orchard and in the evening, sip local wines around a blazing fire, all with a view of the highest tides in the world. There is an option to upgrade this listing to accommodate 14 guests with the addition of the 2 bdrm, 1100 sq ft Cellar Suite, for a fee. This suite will remain unoccupied should you not require it.

The accommodations are a combination of the individual listings on the property + the 100% private access to the gourmet kitchen, fireplace, baby grand piano -- perfect for a group or family getaway, complete with 24 hour access to the private heated pool, wood-burning sauna cabin, and hot tub.

A wonderful setting for team-building, retreats, intimate weddings, and any celebration. To thoroughly enjoy the space and amenities, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND a minimum 2 night stay. This will allow you to fully unwind and enjoy the outdoor amenities during the peak sunshine of the afternoon.

The sleep accommodations are as follows:
-- Guest House (2)
-- Loft (4)
-- Guest Room #1 (2)
-- Guest Room #2 (2)

-- Cellar Suite (optional, for a fee) (4)

*** IF YOU ARE PLANNING A PARTY OR GATHERING WITH MORE THAN THE NUMBER OF GUESTS ON THE RESERVATION, THE BOOKING WILL BE CANCELED, WITHOUT REFUND. (As with any resort, unbooked guests are not permitted on the property or use of the amenities.)

We are creative entrepreneurs who love to socialize and travel. Our home base is in Nova Scotia but we spend a great deal of time at our home in France. ~~~ We have enjoyed joining our guests at the firepit and around the pool in Nova Scotia and have met some wonderful new friends through the experience of hosting.
