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

We stayed in one of these chalets on our last night in Nova Scotia. The chalet was very nicely decorated inside and out, had everything we needed, was in a great location and was run by very friendly owners. I walked for hours on the beach and loved watching the tide come in with big waves. I also really enjoyed... More

We were looking for a place to experience the tides and we found it. Just steps out the front door of your private chalet, is the Bay of Fundy where you can take time to breathe and spend some time as you watch the tides come and go. I could spend hours walking the beach just collecting rocks and sea... More

We just returned from Advocate Harbour, and had such a lovely trip. This location is directly on the Bay of Fundy, and the views from the living room are gorgeous. Su' and John, the owners of Driftwood Park Retreat, were very accommodating. The chalets are well kept and clean, and the beds very comfortable. The kitchens are fully stocked, which... More

We have just arrived back from a 5 night stay at Driftwood Park Retreat and it was a great break away from home, Su and John are great and extremely friendly and helpful. The beach chalets are great, very clean, fully equipped and great for the family. Our girls loved sharing a room and being able to walk straight onto... More

We began our trip to Nova Scotia with a trip to Advocate Harbour. We kayaked all day and then checked in to the Driftwood Park Retreat which was easily accessible from the main road. The owners were expecting us and greeted us warmly and checked us in quickly to help us make it to our reservations at the Wild Caraway... More

We spent 2 nights here, very nice chalets in front of the ocean. The chalets are very clean and modern, they look great (slightly small but nice). Beaware that this area of Nova scotia can get very foggy, so sometimes you will get no view of the ocean (despite being in front of it) at all. The hosts are simply... More

We enjoyed our stay. The Chalets are next to the sea in a quiet area near Cape Chignecto Provincial park day access. Su and John were very good hosts. The Chalets were nice and the balcony overlooking the sea with a grill was the highlight. Nice to walk on the beach as well. The only downside is Advocate harbor apparently... More
