Please view our house tour video! Search "Fennel Old House" on Youtube. Also note: To keep our home affordable to Canadians, we've reduced our rates to compensate for the weak Canadian dollar. Our rates are the same as they were two years ago.

Experience Nova Scotia island-living at its finest at the Fennel Old House.

Management response:

The closest full-size supermarket is indeed a half-hour away, but there are two, well-stocked convenience stores within an 8-10 minute drive. We encourage guests to stop at the supermarket before arriving.
