Lovely 5 bedroom, renovated fisherman's home nestled at the tip of Cape St Mary and surrounded by the Bay of Fundy and St Mary's Bay. The house is warm, light, full of windows, charmingly furnished and has all amenities. The five bedrooms look out on a panoramic view of the rugged Evangeline Coast, a small boat-building shop, fishing boats, a lobster wharf and a nearby lighthouse on top of beautiful cliffs. Mavillette Beach is less than a hundred meters away and has a mile of unspoiled sand beach and dunes. It is considered the finest beach on the Western side of Nova Scotia. The tide is dramatic with the sea rising and falling 10 meters (30 feet) every 6 hours and docks are hinged so the fishing boats can rise and fall with the tide. You may see some whale, seals and bald eagles and the birding is excellent. Fish for mackerel and whitefish off the adjacent wharf and breakwater. Wild strawberries in late June, blueberries in August, cranberries in the Fall.. Almost no bugs because of the ocean breezes. Swimming: ocean temperatures are like those in Maine but at low tide,the tidal pools and mouth of the river form warm 'kiddie pools'. Fresh water lakes abound, and St Anne's college has a heated pool. Ocean kayaking and wind-surfing require skill. We have land on a wooded fresh water lake two miles inland where you can kayak, fish, make a campfire, and swim. There are beaver, porcupine, and several species of carnivorous plants by the lake. There is a beautiful 4 mile cliff walk along the Western side of the Cape. You can watch both sunrise and sunset from our house and from the lighthouse. Tennis courts and golf are 20-30 minutes away. There's a ping pong table in the garage, loads of board games and puzzles and a net for volleyball and badminton.
