Staycations in the Maritimes
We live in such a beautiful part of the world. Im all for travelling and adventuring around the globe but sometime's it's nice to do it so close to home. I want to shine light on some of my favourite places to stay in the Maritimes so that you can do the same thing this year!
Broadleaf Glamping - Hopewell Hill, NB
If you want the best views, good food, and a great place to go horseback riding, this is definitely the place for you. What could possibly be more east coast than a lighthouse cabin? This space has one bed, a few kitchen amenities and a small sitting area in the entrance. No groceries? No problem. There's a restaurant on site that offers delivery to your room. Minutes from Hopewell Rocks, it's the perfect spot to spend a few nights adventuring some of New Brunswick's greatest features.
Darlings Island Bunkie on the Water - Darlings Island, NB
This spot was so much better than the photos and MUCH better than we ever expected. It comes equipped with two beds, a peaceful outdoor shower, a few small outdoor kitchen amenities, stunning views of the lake and lots of places to sit and enjoy it. Spend one night or a few nights but I promise you, you won't want to leave. Only 30 mins from Saint John centre where you can find lots of cool spots to wine + dine.
The Woodland Hive - Hillsborough, NB
I wish I had the words to describe how much we LOVED staying here. The dome life is definitely something I could get used to. If the wooden hot tub and sauna doesn't sell you, the incredibly comfy bed and roaming chickens will (they have a chicken coop and they are all very friendly, its guaranteed they will come and say hello) This property has the privacy you need and all the things you need to enter complete relaxation mode.
A Cabin Down Below - Wentworth, NS
This cabin has so much to offer. Being so secluded in the forests of Nova Scotia will force you to unwind, break out the bottle of wine and relax in the hot tub all day long. With so many adventures to do so close to the property, its easy to spend days here without getting bored. Bonus: Its PET FRIENDLY! If you are an avid traveller, you know just as much as I do that it can be quite difficult to find places that will allow you furry friends to join you and Im here to tell you not to look any further, THIS is where you want to be. The hosts will make sure you are very well taken care of.
Hambrook Point Cottage - Renous, NB
Another PET FRIENDLY cottage coming your way! This place will take you back in time. It sits right on the Miramichi River and only a 2 mins walk from the cottage. If you're looking for a place to relax and re-charge, you need to book here. With only a 20-25 mins drive from Miramichi, you're far enough from civilization to enjoy nature but still close enough if you need anything. This place has all the glamping necessities like a full kitchen including a microwave and a full bathroom. Bring your kids, your fur babies, you and your partner or just yourself. You'll love this place!
Belleisle Bayview Retreat "Star Dome" - Long Point, NB
This dome stay was such a sweet little hidden gem. We had yet to adventure this part of New Brunswick and we are so glad we did! I would 100% recommend staying here during the summer to take advantage of all of its amenities like the sauna and night time star gazing. Bring your own groceries to BBQ outside and enjoy your meal with a view on the patio directly attached to the dome. Bring everything you need and you'll never need to leave!
Historic + Central Modernized Loft - Halifax, NS
This renovated historic church was so much more than we expected when we got there! With it being located so close to downtown Halifax, it was so easy to see everything we wanted to see, have a few drinks at some of the local bars and enjoy Halifax's nightlife while only being a cheap cab ride away.
Worthington Place Oceanside Resort + Spa - Musquodoboit Harbour, NS
Again with another hidden gem! This place feels like home. The owners are always so welcoming and accommodating and make the BEST breakfasts. With the canoes, kayaks, hot tub and sauna, I can promise you the you will never get bored. You also have access to a full kitchen, robes and drinks (available for purchase) What more do you need?!
Get ready for SO MANY more to come in the next few weeks!
