Much more than a ''cottage'' though...its a haven of tranquility, wave lappings, breezes off the Bay. Recommended. This gem is fully, tastefully and comfortably equipped and there is no problem regards being electrically off grid....all is as described. The cottage is well named....Felicity means 'of...More

Thank you for recommending us. Listening to waves lap on shore over the rocks is certainly one relaxing therapy. I am happy to see you found the true meaning of Felicity and enjoyed your experience with us. Your hostess Linda

We are happy you enjoyed the solitude of Solace Cottage. Our night sky is just amazing, isn't it, with no light pollution. There are several beaches, rock and sand, on both the Bay of Fundy and Saint Mary's Bay. You never know what you will...More

We stayed here this past weekend and it was absolutely stunning! Cute cottage hidden in the hills with amazing views and right on the water. Perfect weekend retreat. The hosts were very kind and accommodating.

We are pleased you spent your weekend with us. I never tire of the view or just watching the water to catch a glimpse of a porpoise or seal. We hope to see you again. Your hostess Linda

A great place to escape the day to day stress. My daughter and I loved the peace and quiet. All we could hear were the birds and the waves from the bay. In the morning we could take our coffee while admiring the beautiful sunrise...More

We would love to see you again. Most of us just don't realize how busy and noisy our lives are until you get away. Isn't it wonderful to be able to watch a sunrise over Saint Mary's Bay! What a way to start your day....More
