Changing Tides!

Located in the village of Grand Desert, an Acadian community, that has lived off what the land and sea has provided for hundreds of years.

A beautiful house and a breathtaking view of the ocean, wetlands and islands await you. A quiet sandy beach is just a walk away. We have clean comfortable beds, spacious rooms with en suites, ocean breezes and delicious breakfasts.

In June and July you can pick wild strawberries at the beach, while August and September will offer wild blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries and fox berries.

We are just a 30 to 40 minute drive away from the airport, golfing and the historic port cities of Halifax and Dartmouth. There is a pub, cafes and a great Italian restaurant within a 5 min. drive.

Take a walk on quaint roads or hike the trails. You can bird watch, bike, swim, surf and windsurf locally or just enjoy a quiet book on one of our decks.
