Peaceful and Quiet Get-Away, Just What We Wanted
The cottage was comfortable and successfully delivered the peace and solitude we sought for our family as a get-away from the stress and tensions of life in a large city at home. It was clean and the housekeeper was extremely helpful and kind. She periodically checked in with us to ensure that all was well. Also, she guided us carefully and safely to the cottage after dark on the night we arrived to check-in somewhat later than planned.
During our stay we really enjoyed various day trips in and around the area to places like the village of Digby (restaurants, flea market, beautiful views, etc.), views and historic sites along the western coast of Nova Scotia, Annapolis-Royal/Fort Anne, Bear River Winery, the Islands via East Ferry (Long Island and Brier Island), Fundy Bay Beach, Midway Lake, various light houses, etc. We also enjoyed a half day of whale watching and picture taking on the water. Overall, we would recommend the cottage to others.
Two informational items that might be helpful in advance for future guests:
1. Information about days/times, prices and reservations in advance for the Ferry between St. John and Digby (e.g., phone and online contact details).
2. Advance instructions about driving from Digby to the cottage at night (the road can be very dark and visibility can be low when the fog rolls in).
After an interesting and scenic drive down Digby Neck we arrived at this Cottage which stands on a small hill overlooking St Mary's Bay to the south. The Cottage was spotless when we arrived and a freshly baked pie was waiting for us!!
During our stay we found the Cottage very comfortable (especially the beds) and the Cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed even things we don't have at home and we found the locals very friendly and eager to help and answer our questions.
Diane who is the house keeper met us on arrival and was very knowledgeable and a mine of information about the local area.
The deck area at the back of The Cottage is new and we enjoyed sitting here watching the wildlife and the world go by - very relaxing. The Cottage is well placed for day trips out to see some of what this picturesque part of Canada is all about and we really enjoyed our stay.
Another great review for The Gardener's Cottage. Nova Scotia on the East Coast of Canada is arguably less well know than some other parts of Canada and is all the better for that. The peace and tranquillity of this place is wonderful and we are always blown away by the pristine nature of the countryside. Every turn in the road leads to another great view or another quaint harbour.

Clean, comfortable and well equipped house in lovely area
We had a lovely week in this house. Weather was great and we enjoyed the big new deck with the gas bbq and parasol, very tranquil. Boys had fun playing frisbee in the garden, we enjoyed watching and listening to the birds, Diane’s homemade apple pie was delicious too. Caught mackerel from wharf at Little River and saw whales twice which was main reason we stayed in this area, very memorable. House was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed just be sure to go with everything you need as a fair trek back to larger supermarkets and very limited eating out options locally.
Thank you for another GREAT review for The Gardener's Cottage! Perfectly situated for whale watching with a number of excellent Tour operators within a quick and easy drive. We never get tired of seeing these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat - it really is awe inspiring.
Diane's pies are becoming famous and rightly so because they're wonderful - if you'd like to sample a home baked pie to go with your whale watching trip, reserve your stay at The Gardener's Cottage.
Well maintained house on the Digby neck
A lovely, comfortable house with everything you could want for a peaceful, restful stay on the Digby Neck. We explored many roads on the neck as well as Long and Brier Island going to the farthest tip of Brier Island (Whipple Point). Took Peter's recommendation and used Ocean Explorations on Long Island and saw 7 humpback whales (one was a playful comical baby just goofing around and annoying its mother), Atlantic White Sided Dolphins, seals, puffins and a deer on the shore as we returned to the harbour. The zodiac ride in a "medium blow" as Captain Tom called it was quite a ride! The TV had died but Diane and Peter leaped into action and a replacement was put in place very quickly. Attended the Dibgy LobsterBash and saw the winner of the largest lobster contest .... 19lb3oz!!
Good memories ... loved it.
Hi Allan and Flo
Thank you for sharing your amazing experience, we are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful time, certainly your whale watching trip sounds fabulous - what a treat!
Apologies for the television, we're glad that the replacement came quickly and that it didn't spoil your stay at the cottage in any way.
The LobsterBash sounds superb - I can't imagine what a 19lb 3 oz lobster would look like - last time we were at the cottage we saw a 14lb one and that was pretty impressive (and pretty delicious!)
We can't guarantee the whales will always be in abundance when you visit the Gardener's Cottage but we can promise you a warm welcome...and a delcious pie!
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage
The place is clean and had everything we needed. Very quite and great view from the house. Diane brought as a welcome pie which was great! She was very helpful.
Thank you for your great review. We work hard to ensure that The Cottage is spotlessly clean and ready for our guests enjoyment. We've made a number of upgrades this year which will make any stat at The Cottage even better. We heard from a guest this week who had seen 7 whales in one trip...
Comfortable and clean
Many thanks for getting us in with a short notice booking. We loved the cottage. It was well furnished, well decorated, and exceptionally clean. Comfortable bed, friendly community, and a perfect place for our week on Digby Neck. Thank you for making the Gardeners Cottage available to us.
Little River is een rustig, schilderachtig, landelijk dorp gelegen aan Digby Neck in The Bay Of Fundy, een historisch en ecologisch diverse natuurlijke habitat. De Bay of Fundy ervaart de hoogste getijden ter wereld en biedt een ongelooflijk rijk marien milieu. Een hoogtepunt van elk bezoek aan The Gardener's Cottage is een reis om walvissen te spotten. Veel operators om walvissen te spotten vertrekken binnen 2 mijl van het huisje. Bultrug, Minke en de Noord-Atlantische Rechterwalvissen zijn frequente bezoekers van de baai en zelfs de machtige Blauwe Walvis is in de baai gezien. Zeevogels waaronder Bald Eagles en Ospreys zijn ook gezien in en rond Digby Neck.
Voor degenen die van golf houden, biedt Digby Pines Resort een cursus die door veel golfprofessionals wordt beschouwd als een van de meest uitdagende in Canada. Minder dan 30 minuten rijden is net zo gemakkelijk om te krijgen als het is een uitdaging om te spelen. Probeer het eens
