Delight in 1000 voeten van uw eigen prive-en ongerepte strand aan de steeds veranderende baai van Fundy, neighbored door schilderachtige vissersdorpjes en de thuisbasis van vele soorten trekvogels. Kijk grote reigers waden in het getij zwembaden in afwachting van hun vangst van de dag te zien arenden zweven overhead. Deel het uitzicht met onze lokale band kolibries Op de meeste middagen speelse zeehonden komen in de baai bij hoog water en rondspringen voor uw ogen. Het water blijft bevaarbaar per kajak of kano voor enkele uren. Het strand is een zandstrand en strekt zich uit over de gehele lengte van de baai. Bij hoog water is de oceaan slechts een steenworp afstand van uw voordeur, gemakkelijk bereikbaar te voet, jong en oud. Lopen de oceaanbodem bij eb en bewonder wat het tij heeft gebracht in U kunt ontspannen op het balkon en kijk naar uw kinderen zich vermaken voor uren op deze uiterst veilige, beschermde strand. Op een heldere nacht tijdens de zomermaanden de Kleine Beer constellatie hangt direct boven net als een groot aantal sterren, hun zichtbaarheid versterkt door het ontbreken van omgevingslicht uit de omliggende huizen of commercie. Het is magisch niet te geloven !!
Het pand ligt op minder dan een half uur van de bruisende stad St. John, New Brunswick. Charmant 2 verdiepingen strand cottage (gebouwd in 2006) op vier spectaculaire hectare, begrensd door
zoet water kreek en warm getij zwembaden. Dit ongerepte kustlijn zal u onder de indruk van grootsheid van de natuur! Perfect toevluchtsoord voor liefhebbers, natuurliefhebbers, dichters, kunstenaars, en anderen.
This beautifully efficient and comfortable cottage is situated within steps of the high tide mark. Having been fortunate enough to have stayed here numerous times throughout the years, I have experienced the broad spectrum of its ever-changing nature. Each part of the spring/summer/fall season brings with it certain visual, auditory and sensory delights. One needs to work with nature and be ready to apply sunscreen lotion and, at times, mosquito repellent… which are thoughtfully provided.
From the balcony on the top floor of the cottage, one feels as though one is on the deck of an ocean liner. The incoming tide produces a delightful sound, while the outgoing tide enables one to explore the vastness of the ocean floor. The smell of the sweetgrass is intensified by the full sun while the tidal pools to one side of the property fill to overflowing with the incoming tide… particularly during full moons and downpours.
The well-equipped kitchen with its scenic sitting area is on the top floor, along with a half-bathroom. The two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed are on the entry-level floor, along with a full bathroom which houses a washer-dryer unit. There are plenty of accouterments in the bathroom cabinets, should one have forgotten important items at home. In the hallway linen closet, there are plenty of clean, fluffy bath towels, and in each bedroom closet, one can find extra pillows and blankets. The cottage is most thoughtfully zoned for temperature control at the turn of a knob.
A stay here, be it long or short, leaves one with a sense of well-being and peace. I eagerly look forward to many more visits here and many more delightful experiences at this Magical Kingdom by the Sea.

This cottage stands alone on a lovely horseshoe-shaped bay. Low tide provides a unique opportunity of investigating the interesting rocks and creatures in the seabed; high tide would be perfect for those who bring their own kayak. (We understand there is a kayak rental company nearby so it may even be possible to rent a kayak and transport it to the house. Swimming is possible depending on one's toleration of the cold water.) Though the cottage is quite small, it is nicely laid out, with the living space and terrace located on the upper floor to take advantage of the beautiful views. The kitchen is well-equipped, laundry facilities are available, and the bedrooms were comfortable. It would be most suitable for two couples, or a couple with two small children, since there are only two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, so that older children may find it uncomfortable, especially if they are not of the same sex. A cot is available but not sure where one would place it; we think the living quarters would be too tight for a cot to be comfortably laid out.
Now for the other side of the coin. Sadly, we were plagued by insects during our entire stay, so much so that we could not enjoy the outdoors or terrace at all. Aggressive horseflies swarmed every time we entered or exited the house or the car, and at night we did battle with mosquitoes and gnats. It was a terrible pity that we did not enjoy sitting outside or walking on the beach because of the exploding insect population. We often felt that we were vacationing in the Amazon. We discussed the situation with the owner, who intends to investigate environmentally friendly ways of controlling these pests, but future renters should make certain that there is an effective plan to keep them at bay. Or bring your own bats and lizards.
Finally, the house is a bit out of the way. Perfect if you intend to stay local, but most of the nature-related activities in this area are located out of St Andrews, an hours' drive from the house. This would not have bothered us because the travelling is easy with little or no traffic; it was unfortunately the bug situation that nearly did us in. Our two stars would increase to four if it not for these unwanted guests.
The calmness from the sound of the changing tides.
The first class amenities of our own beach house.
The beautiful and serene view from our very private balcony.
The extreme tranquility or this setting in an abundance of nature.
Long walks exploring the Bay floor at low tide.
The natural beauty of the surrounding area.
Beautiful sunrises over the Bay.
The aroma of fresh clean Canadian ocean air.
Serene and comfortable! That is what our stay was mostly about.
The owner spared no expense to provide a finely decorated and extremely well equipped home. You really don't have to bring very much with you. The modern kitchen is large and fully equipped, overlooks the Bay. The kitchen and living room on the top floor offer extraordinary views of the Bay and surrounding Canadian shore line. There is a fine music CD collection, along with many movies and books. Comfortable beds and all the needed linens. Restaurants and nightlife are a short drive away in Saint John. Sea Kayak rentals just up the road. Nothing else needed for a wonderful week!
Thank you Karen!
We had an absolutely lovely time at this charming beach house. A beautifully decorated house with a real sense of style, and a spectacular view, especially from the balcony in the mornings! Karen, the owner, was most gracious and helpful. What a treat also to be able to bring our trusted companion who couldn't have been happier on the fantastic beach right outside the house. Great vacation! Will definitely return!
We have already lost count of how many summers we've stayed at Little Dipper Beach House. Coming here has become our much needed yearly emotional supplement. Neither descriptive words nor photos can ever do justice to this location and these accommodations. One must come for a prolonged stay in order to fully unwind and soak in the essence of the magic that surrounds.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maggie's Run. The beach house was well-equipped for a comfortable stay. The owner was very hospitable. And the location...beyond compare! We enjoyed walking the 1000 feet of private sandy beach every day and falling asleep each night listening to the sound of the surf.
The owner is very dog-friendly so our Shelties also enjoyed their stay. They spent hours on the balcony keeping an eye on the movement of the tides and the seabirds but didn't see the fox that trotted across the ocean floor one day when the tide was low.
Although it felt as if we were in the middle of nowhere, there's a spa just down the road and the City of Saint John is only 20 minutes away. We were reluctant to leave our nest but did walk the dogs at the Irving Nature Park on one afternoon and strolled around St. Andrew's on another.
We're looking forward to our next visit in October...
