FAQ

Is there WiFi?

Wifi is available. At this point in time we do have to ask that you do NOT stream movies and YouTube because we don’t have unlimited data. However, if you want to watch a movie, we have a large selection of DVD’s for a wide range of tastes. There is a TV and DVD player in your room.

Do you have parking available?

Guests may park free and secure in our driveway.

Do you allow early check in?

When it’s possible, we do. However, we can’t promise ahead of time. Best to check with us that morning.

Our usual check out time is 11 am but often guests head out to their next adventure before that. When they do, we can have your room clean and ready before 3 pm – our usual check in time.

Do you serve breakfast?

Absolutely. Coffee, tea, orange juice, fresh local eggs, bacon or sausage, English muffins from a local bakery, butter, homemade jam and local fresh fruit from the Annapolis Valley when in season.

We accommodate gluten-free and vegan requirements if you let us know beforehand.

If the weather is good you can even dine al fresco on the deck and watch the fishing boats out on the Bay.

What about local restaurants ?

There are a number of local options, some within 15 minutes of our location. We may also be able to recommend some good spots in the areas you plan to visit during your day.

What time is high tide?

That changes each day. We post the times for the coming week so you’ll always know.

What is there to do in Margaretsville?

Margaretsville is an historic village on the Bay of Fundy with a unique ‘salt shaker’ lighthouse visible from our home. It is open during the summer months and the sunsets from its deck are breath-taking. Be sure to keep your camera handy!

You can also fish off the end of the wharf at high tide or beach comb and hike along the shoreline to the Margaretsville Falls during low tide.

At night, grab a bag of marshmallows and build a fire of driftwood on the beach while you enjoy the spectacular Fundy sunsets.
