Cozy, clean, RUSTIC, country cottage, located directly on the lovely Hammond River, nestled beside a timeless covered bridge.
Enjoy the private beach just steps away to swim, fish and explore the river with your choice of any of our kayaks/canoes/paddleboards available on-site. Outside dining on your large picnic table with umbrella , cozy evenings around the bonfire pit, both overlooking the river.
Perfect spot to day-trip from or to stay and appreciate nature’s gem.

The space
This is our family’s vintage, tidy cottage and is self contained, fully equipped for a short or long term stay. It sits on the first property welcoming you home for now, to Darling's Island.

It’s a cozy and serene spot situated directly on the Hammond River, surrounded by nature and is really where you’ll want to spend most of your time. The Century old Covered Bridge (now just for foot and bicycle traffic) is just a stroll down your driveway.

Your private deck is equipped with seating and a BBQ, and on the lawn continues to your large picnic table with umbrella for outdoor dining and additional lounging overlooking the river and bridge. The front yard is all yours and equipped with its own bonfire area for cozy evenings.
Fishing and swimming are encouraged. Floaties can be on hand for lazy river afternoons.

The backyard has a new small Cabin (about 100' from the cottage) and likely has up to 2 guest on vacation as well, this is intended as their area.

The private beach, the many kayaks, canoes, paddleboards available (safety gear and paddles too), and the volley ball grass court (balls, badminton gear and washer toss) are what is shared between the both cottage and cabin.

The space is created for a fun and relaxing stay-cation and/or a base for exploring more of New Brunswick’s beauty.
The Island has a relaxed vibe that allows you to feel at home and unwind in its tranquil surroundings.

*2021 CHANGES! We have discontinued our kayak rentals to shift all of our focus to just our guests. Remember all of the kayaks are still here for your use.
*If you are interested in renting both the Cottage and Cabin, please let me know as discounts are available.
*** We are making extra effort to thoroughly sanitize and disinfect our space in between guest’s visits.***
