Bay of Fundy
Have a look at Bay of Fundy – Canada’s Natural Wonder for detailed information about the world’s highest tides, minerals, dinosaur fossils, and the 2014 designation of the Bay of Fundy as one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. All this is absolutely right at your doorstep during your stay at the Beach House!
The Beach House is located on 2 beaches. A path on the Beach House property leads directly to a salt water marsh on your left and the Bay of Fundy on your right – the marsh fills and empties with the tides through a narrow channel.
Every room in the Beach House has stunning views of the Bay of Fundy, except for the 2 bathrooms – they both have views of the salt water marsh on the east side of the property.
FORCE – Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy
FORCE is dedicated to working with many partners to better understand if in-stream tidal technology can play a role in Canada’s energy’s future. The FORCE visitor centre, located outside Parrsboro, is open to the public from spring to fall and definitely worth a visit.
A small community a short drive down the shore from the Beach House – a perfect miniature community with its own school, service station, post office, restaurants, 2 stores, and a fishing fleet.
The Mary Celeste, a ghost ship found drifting in the Atlantic in 1872, was built at the shipyard in Spencer’s Island. The Smithsonian has taken an interest in the ship and its mystery.
