Why the Owner Chose Gardner Creek, NB, Canada

My home was left to me from my parents and the location is so spectacular it made perfect sense to do this with the old farm house. High on a hill overlooking the beautiful Bay of Fundy, in a peaceful, caring community. The old farm house was designed so well to do something like this that it all worked out in the long run. A few new renovations in bathrooms and new kitchen updates made it work.
People love the space and quietness that it offers to them. I had one guest sitting out in the chairs on my veranda one morning meditating as the sun came up over the bay and he said he had not experienced another situation like this in his travels for a long time. That made me feel so good for him and the fact that I had decided to do this for others to enjoy. Big cities are great but sometimes you just need to get out of that noise and confusion and take time to breathe fresh air and have some space to roam around on with out bumping into others.
. I always have homemade sweets in the kitchen for them to snack on throughout the day and tea and coffee.

* The quietness of the evening is another big bonus and not having to get up too early if you want to sleep in for a change is nice for some.
* Some of the finest scenery surrounds this house sitting high on a hill top overlooking the Bay of Fundy.
* Family friendly atmosphere [children welcomed]
* Free wireless internet through out the house.
* Lots of outdoor seating and tables for relaxing or dinning, and plus propain barbeque.
* Large acreage for children to play and guests to enjoy.
* Free off street parking and parking for motorcyclist.
* Centrally located between the city of Saint John or the village of St. Martins, makes it nice to do day trips to either area and return home to quiet. Even outside of this range, one can be in Sussex or St. Stephens within an hour or two, which is nice when you want to do day trips here and there.
* Everyone is treated like family or a friend while staying, so just be yourself and we'll be fine.Our Maritime hospitality is our biggest feature.
* Having full use of the kitchen to cook for yourselves throughout the day is a big plus for a lot of my travellers especially with children travelling with them. Helps to cut costs so one can go and enjoy some of the finer things we have to offer.
* The laundry is available to my guests too and we have a clothes line outside where they can if they want to hang out their clothes to get that fresh salty air smell.  I hang most of my linens out there daily to dry for the bedding on the beds upstairs.
* A dryer for days that one is too busy or too wet.
* Satelight T.V with movies, 
* Ring Toss game for some evening fun
* Satellite TV  in common room with DVD and movies
* Some toys and books for little children to enjoy.
* Quiet reading area with desk and connection for laptops to charge.
* Charging stations in bedrooms.
* Complimentary  firewood for evening bonfires.
