The perfect spot for the last four days of our trip. We spent 4 days on the Cabot and Ceiladh trails before arriving at our final destination for our 10 day anniversary vacation. Su and John were wonderful hosts and their special touches made our stay their very memorable. Couldn't ask for more! Don't miss Novashores and Cape Chignecto Park.

We spent 2 days at the Driftwood with our grandson. It is right on the beach and you can get a great sense of the Bay of Fundy tide changes just by walking out your front door. It is also a short drive to the Cape Chigneto provincial park for great hiking. The cottage itself was very comfortable and had... More

We just arrived back from Driftwood Park, and can't say how much we loved this place! We are definitely going to be returning! Su and John are very welcoming and friendly and are extremely helpful with making reservations, recommendations, etc. They're absolutely wonderful hosts. The cottage itself was exactly like the video description on their website - 2 comfortable bedrooms... More

After three days of rain in Halifax the sky brightened the closer we got to Advocate Harbour. We stopped to settled our boat trip for the next day and quickly found the Chalets. The hosts were out but the sign on the door sent us where we needed to go. We were thrilled with our bedrooms on the main floor... More

This was a homey, cozy and incredibly quiet place to stay in Nova Scotia. The only sound was the occasional fog horn! When we arrived, we entered the little house and the design was unique as well as impressive. The two small bedrooms and bathroom are on the ground floor, and the kitchen, dining area and living room (complete with... More

The chalets at Driftwood are a few steps from the beach at Advocate Harbour. The beach is great for long walks, enjoying the tides, and sunsets. Driftwood Park Retreat was the perfect home base for nearby kayaking, boating, and hiking. John and Su were wonderful hosts. The chalet was clean and trouble free. The bed was comfy! This area of...

We (4 couples) spent a Saturday evening and night here. After a great meal at the Wild Caraway Restaurant, we returned to the Retreat. After gathering the requisite libations we went to the beach which is in front of the cottages. Here we found the reason for the name of the Retreat... tons of driftwood. We immediately gathered up what... More

Everyone needs to visit Driftwood Park Retreat. The houses were tastefully decorated and very fresh with good facilities but thecrowning glory was the first floor kitchen and living room with balcony and incredible views across Fundy - the sunsets need to be seen to be believed. Right in front of the house is a wonderful pebbly beach where we took... More

This was the loveliest place on our week trip to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. We were very pleasantly surprised at the lovely furnishings and bedding, the wonderful view from the upstairs deck, and the spacious, clean accommodations. We carefully checked the tide tables and enjoyed seeing the high tide at the full moon, compared with the low tide just... More

Unfortunately it rained during our one day stay which sort of limited our experience. Definitely a spot for longer than one night. Fully furnished with everything necessary to make yourself right at home. The views from the deck outside the up stair's living room were beautiful making morning coffee a delight. Right on the Bay of Fundy which allowed a... More
