Vacation Rental Property

Formerly a Four Star B&B, with the addition of a full kitchen we have converted our property to a Guest house. We offer unique accommodations in secluded valley 2km off the Cabot Trail. This is a working Trout Farm, (Speckled and Rainbow) with a U-fish. A walk up our 'deer field' on our 'south' mountain gives a stupendous view of the Margaree Valley. Bald Eagles and Ospreys visit our ponds almost daily and the swallows and 'hummers' (hummingbirds), are always in residence.
The Guest House can accommodate up to 6 people or, if you don't mind sharing a kitchen, a couple can rent one room.
