I just returned from a fabulous week in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada at the Seaside Beach Resort and am giving both the hotel and the area rave reviews! I had once previously visited Atlantic Canada, and wanted to get back... Although I live in New England, and have vacationed frequently in the Adirondacks, the White Mountains, Cape Cod, Nantucket, the coast of Maine, etc, there was something very special calling me back to the Maritimes. I decided to head for Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, as it is the gateway to the Bay of Fundy and its extraordinary tides. I wanted to stay on the water, and also have access to the town, and the area. After some internet research, I found the Seaside Beach Resort, and it proved to be everything I hoped and it promised! The rooms were lovely, with great bay windows looking out on remarkable views of those great tides and the coastline, even with its own lighthouse in sight! The place was immaculate, comfortable, and affordable. Although I was not with a large group, I noticed the presence of wedding parties and family reunions. The place is perfect for that as it offers both privacy and the opportunity for shared experiences on the lawns and decks. While only a few blocks from a lovely resort town with shops and good restaurants (not fancy or expensive, but good food), it is on the water, and feels quite secluded. One could sit all day quietly watching those amazing tides go in and out, the boats and sea gulls going by, and at low tide wonderful walks on the bay floor. It is also well located to be the base for amazing day trips - to nearby Minister's Island, to Campobello Island (summer home to FDR), whale watches and more. In addition to owning the resort, David Sullivan is a free lance writer who has authored and edited some great books about Saint Andrews, so an extra treat was chatting with him a bit about the local history. Great place; great vacation!
