Nature Escape

For those who appreciate nature, the Beach House will be heaven. When the house was being built in early 1999, Liz and her visitors often see deer, foxes, bunnies and rabbits, and lots of birds and butterflies in the spring and summer.

At night, the air is so clear that you will be able to see the stars and the constellations - a rare treat for visitors who live in cities like Toronto, Boston, New York.

This is the view of the salt marsh and the countryside from the north end of the property. The tide is high and has completely filled the marsh.

Cape Chignecto Park is just over a half hour's drive down the shore from our vacation rental property. This is an absolutely marvelous wilderness park, which visitors travel to, from all over the world. Have a look at their web site.

Joggins Fossil Cliffs are located on the upper Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest ocean tides. This beautiful seaside community experiences the awesome tidal forces of the Atlantic Ocean as its waters rise and fall in excess of 15 metres (47 feet) twice daily. This great force of nature; combined with efforts of area coal miners, has led to the amazing discovery of "coal age" fossils in the sea cliffs below the community. With careful observation visitors may discover fossils on the beach that had fallen from the cliffs and view the spectacular multi-hued sedimentary layers that define over 300 million years of Earth's geological past. Take a look at the Joggins Fossil Cliffs web site and see the magnificent natural treasures which are just a short shore drive from our vacation rental cottage property.
