Thornbank Farm is bursting with history and tranquility. Rev. James Ross established The West River Seminary and Theological Hall here at this very site. Ross would later become President at Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS. The Farm is located on the east side of the West River, between the Durham and Lochbroom Bridges. It is nestled out on a peninsula along the West River. Fields, eagles, and giant old growth Maple trees compliment the overwhelming peacefulness of the West River.
“Nice little apartment with everything you need, nice hot shower with bath tub, coffee maker, stove, wifi and much more. Chris brought us 2 beers from the local brewery which we enjoyed a lot. He responded imediately to our messages. It was very cold outside (-20°C) when we stayed here. Make sure to bring some slippers cause the floor gets quite cold. We really enjoyed our short stay. The little farm looks beautiful!”

“Had a lovely weekend at Sarah's cottage. My partner and I, along with our pooch stayed for two nights. The cottage is clean, modern, well equipped and has a nice view of the lake. Sarah was great at communicating with us when we had questions. Would love to come back when it's warmer to take advantage of the large deck and firepit.”

“This is a really nice spot and very good value. John and Karen are friendly and helpful. The views are lovely, the chickens are fun, and the unit is welcoming and well designed. Bery comfy bed. Will definitely go back and would highly recommend it to anyone. Easy drive to Stellarton, New Glasgow, Tatamagouche, Wallace, Pugwash. Even extended my stay by a day while I was there.
