This charming little apartment is on the upper floor of a downtown historic home (separate side entrance).
Quiet and cosy, yet just a 3-5 minute walk to cafés, bars, restaurants, shops, independent movie theatre(!), bowling alley, art galleries, and groceries (grocery store, farmers market, bakeries, and other specialty). Next to our serene and iconic waterfowl park, and downtown core, it is also close walking distance to Mount Allison University.

The space

The self-contained 2nd floor suite has a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and separate entrance. There isn't a living room per se, but a loveseat and small table with chairs are in the kitchen area for lounging. Furnished with books, art, cosy decor, wifi, and games, there is plenty to do inside. However, you couldn't be better situated to walk to everything to see and do in "bagtown" (and there is a lot!).
A pantry holds extra towels and linens, an iron and ironing board. There are basic toiletries, a hairdryer, microwave, stove, full refrigerator, kettle, toaster, coffee press, coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic, butter, often fresh eggs from our chickens... if you're wondering what else, just ask.
Please note that this second floor apartment is accessed by a fairly steep interior stairway. I'm open to the possibility of you bringing a pet, but please discuss this with me before booking.

Guest access

Please feel free to visit the backyard chickens & gardens. If the timing is right, I'll leave you fresh eggs & herbs along with the usual tea, coffee & kitchen basics.
The garden has a good variety of fruit and nut trees, berries, vines (grape, honeysuckle, hardy kiwi), vegetables, and ornamental trees. Sedums & creeping thyme make up the "lawn". Some of these plants, and also the chickens, are at the rear of the backyard barn.
Enjoy the firepit if you wish. Just be responsible, keep water nearby, and douse it fully and then some more before leaving it unattended.
Silver Lake is a short bike or drive away, as well as many great ski, snowshoe, and hiking trails. Sackville does have a bike co-op where you may be able to borrow a bike for free for up to a few days (I believe the office for this is only open on school days). Shared use of a washer and dryer is available to guests, but it is in an old & unfinished basement, also accessed though the side entry. Besides unfortunately not being accessible to some of those with mobility issues (due to the fairly steep interior stairs), this is an inclusive and friendly space.

Interaction with guests

I hope to meet you, but if that isn't possible please make yourself at home with simple self check-in/out. I will have useful information for your stay, and it will be easy to contact me if you have any questions or issues. If you would like recommendations tailored to your interests, let me know what you are interested in (foodie? film buff? hiker? I can help). I live downstairs and work flex hours 15 mins away, so am normally close by.

Other things to note

Your separate entry is at the driveway side door of the house. There is space in the entry for boots/shoes, and to hang your coats. The apartment is up the stairs. Enjoy!

Maggie provides a homely environment with some much appreciated toiletries and her own chickens eggs. Very good value for money. Sackville is a very cool place you must give it a try!

We didn't meet Maggie in person but she was super nice to deal with and really fast to respond to messages. The apartment was in a great location and exactly as described. The bed was really comfy too. Totally recommend staying at Maggie's place if you're visiting Sackville!

What a nice, eclectic flat in the heart of Sackville just minutes walk from downtown! It is a cozy upstairs accommodation in an old house with modern touches. And Maggie was super friendly and left a binder with oodles of Information regarding local restaurants and points of interest. It was clean and very inviting. She also provided excellent coffee, a variety of teas, cream and even eggs from her own chickens! Will definitely stay here again (if there is an opening)!

The house in Sackville is terrific! It’s A second-floor suite. It has a huge kitchen and a little sitting area. The bathroom is very big and spacious with a shower. The bed is extremely comfortable! Maggie is very thoughtful in providing breakfast Staples. She also has an eclectic stylishness in the decor of the apartment ! I really liked it! It’s a convenient walk into town where we had authentic Italian pizza at Napule’s. I used to live in Italy, so i know Italian pizza from american! You will enjoy your stay here! We stayed there twice within two weeks as merely a stop over. But I think it would be a very interesting place to visit in the summer. I hope will be back again.

Maggie User ProfileMaggie is a superhost.

I've been using Airbnb as a traveler extensively since 2011, and started hosting my apartment (separate flat in my house) on the site in February of 2017. I really enjoy the Airbnb experience, both travelling and hosting!
I would describe myself as laid back and fun, but also tidy and respectful of other people's spaces. I deeply appreciate good design and a nice setting, and love giving tips to people visiting my area.
I like to plan my own trips around good food, cycling, hiking, and hot springs. I savour good coffee and spirits. So far my favourite destinations have been Croatia and Japan, but a spontaneous trip to Peurto Rico in early 2017 was incredible!
I work as a Cartographer/Geographic Information Systems Analyst, and have a son in university. My hometown is Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, but I now feel equally enamoured with where I live: Sackville, New Brunswick.
