Truly wonderful 2 story apartments overlooking the bay of Fundy. Fully equipped, modern, clean and beautiful suites that make you want for nothing other than a longer stay. Two decks provide a wonderful view and the owners are lovely helpful people. Only regret is we only chose a single night.

Very nice chalets and great hosts. Important to take the time to explore this special area, walk the beaches, hike through Cape Chignecto, bundle up around the campfire, roasting hotdogs on sticks. We will most definitely be returning, can't wait.....see you soon Sue and John

Our late autumn stay was wonderful and we hope to be able to return regularly. Sue and John were excellent hosts, welcoming us warmly and providing advice on activities and services in the area. The location of the chalets on the beach provided us with beautiful sunsets and unlimited opportunities for beach and trail,walks. Our only complaint is that the...

The Seaside chalet was spacious, the kitchen was well stocked with cooking items, and the beds were super comfy. The view of the driftwood beach and the sunset took my breath away! We spent hours exploring up and down both sides of the beach. Su' and John had great recommendations for hiking trails and dinner options. It was very easy...

We had a wonderful stay at Driftwood Park Retreat. This was our second visit and was just as good as the first. The cottages are lovely with fabulous views from the upper floor balcony; the ocean, driftwood strewn beach and surrounding cliffs. Long walks on the beach are a must. The cottages are directly on the beach. They are clean,...

We were lucky to find these chalets for our midweek excursion to the Bay of Fundy. The home was well appointed and cozy. We were there in mid august and slept peacefully with the windows open at night hearing the waves break the shoreline and the cool breezes through open windows. Unlike other rentals in the USA, this chalet came...

This was the second time staying at the driftwood retreat and it was even better the second time around! Su' and John are awesome, so friendly and welcoming! The cottages are comfortable and offer all the comforts of home. And the view is breathtakingly spectacular to say the least! Perfect location for an avid beachcomber like myself!

We booked two cottages and had the best experience. It's well worth it to pay the extra and have the hot tub on the deck. Very friendly staff and extremely reasonably priced! The community is very small so if you want anything special (i.e. fancy beer) you'll need to bring it with you. Fantastic restaurant down the road.

Driftwood Park Retreat was an ideal location for my family's week long stay. From the views to the cozy chalet equipped with everything we could need we were thrilled with our selection of a place to stay. Our young son commented that our time at Driftwood was his favorite part of our two week stay in Nova Scotia.
