Description of the Annapolis Royal vacation cottage rental
Our property is certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a 'Backyard Wildlife Habitat'.
We are also certified by the American Vacation Rental Owners Association (AVROA).

Saltbrook on the Bay is a simply rustic, semi-off-the grid, unplugged retreat. It's a simple, clean, out-in-the-country, by-the-seaside cottage, reminiscent of vacations of a different time. It's perfect for couples or small families who are looking to unwind and relax without distraction of most electronic devices. (There is no television, no internet and very limited cell reception at the cottage - although free internet is readily available in nearby town.)

We have a minimum stay of one week as we've found that it takes several days to truly unwind and separate oneself from technology that is normally used everyday. Are you up for the challenge?

Think back to when life was simple. Feet were bare, summer breezes blew through screens of open windows, the air was filled with the songs of birds by day and crickets by night. Return to the simplicity you remember and emerge from your summer holiday tranquil and rejuvenated.

We have worked very hard to keep our little cottage pristine from gadgets and whirs and beeps and hums and take you back to nature where you wake to the sound of the ocean waves and light of the morning sun.
You can find shimmering beach glass waiting to be discovered, resident seals, pheasants and fox.

While you are here, make sure you visit the fish market down the road in Parker's Cove for world-famous scallops or lobster (they will cook them for you). And be sure to visit Annapolis Royal farmer's market to sample some of the abundant organic produce and local bread and wines.

The Cottage:

Saltbrook on the Bay is a total of about 900 square feet, somewhere between a 'cottage' and a 'camp'. The first floor has a living room and dining room that seats 4. There is also a front 'sun-room' - separate space - that contains books and games as well as a game table.

The cottage kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge and electric range. There is a stove-top percolator coffee pot and a french-press, a teapot, toaster and all cooking utensils, dishes and glassware for 4.

The bathroom is on the first floor and has a tub/shower, hairdryer and washing machine (a clothesline is outside for the freshest of laundry).

Upstairs there are two bedrooms --
The back bedroom has a queen bed with an ocean view, with a memory foam mattress and fluffy pillows and duvets.

The front bedroom has two twin beds with memory foam mattresses and fluffy pillows and duvets.

Area Information
Beachcombing. Historic town of Annapolis Royal is 20 minutes over the mountain with the Kings Theatre, Fort Anne and Botanical Gardens. Bridgetown, 'Prettiest Little Town in Nova Scotia', 15 minutes over the mountain. Artist delight, Bear River - 30 minutes. Canada's 'most romantic' town of Digby and the world famous Digby scallops, 45 minute drive.

International Airport - Halifax - 1 1/2 hours.
Attractions within Walking Distance
Walk through the meadow behind the cottage down to the rocky beach. The Bay of Fundy here is not really appropriate for swimming or watersports (we recommend kayaking from Jubilee Park in Bridgetown), but is wonderful for watching the waves and wildlife.
Best Time of the Year to Travel
Our cottage is seasonal so only open in the summer and fall. Late spring to early summer tends to be damper and buggier -- late July through September are usually warm and wonderful.
