This is an eccentric but totally functional 'retreat' resort. We stayed in early April when it was still chilly but the cabin - 'Fern Alley' - was warm and comfortable. It had a spectacular view from huge windows and a balcony facing east over the wetland and North Head to the archipelago beyond. The sunrise was spectacular. Host James Bates is relaxed, friendly and helpful. Oh yeah, excellent value for the money.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Retreat site is seven acres of forested land overlooking Swallowtail Lighthouse, the saltwater marsh, the fishing village of North Head and picturesque islands in the Bay of Fundy. It is a safe, warm, and dry environment where one can relax and be surrounded by nature. There is a network of nature trails connecting four small fish and frog ponds and the various cabins and tent site. We try to create a supportive environment where people who want to share what they have learned can be actively involved in increasing their knowledge of personal, spiritual, and environmental health or just relax and enjoy the natural beauty. We have a facility ideally suited for hosting workshops or facilitating gatherings focused on personal, spiritual, and environmental health. ... more less
