The space

The Orchard Room has two single beds available, ideal for the single traveller. Travelling with a family member or friend? Book the additional twin bed for a small fee. A cozy easy chair and rocking chair let you curl-up with tea and a book, as sunlight pours through to brighten your morning. Outside is the snack area, at the top of the stairs for your use.

Guest access

Please enter via the front door, your room is located upstairs, cross the living room, going up the stairs and look to your immediately to your left to locate your room.

Interaction with guests

While I work during the day, I am usually available in the evenings to help you; or text me through the Airbnb app.
I will make every effort to meet you on check in (5pm) and if not prior arrangements will be made.

Other things to note

It is good to have a means of transportation as my home is in the country: taxi, bike, or your own vehicle. A bus does come to Avonport daily and can transport you to and from nearby towns. Grand Pre is 10 minutes, and Wolfville is 15 minutes away by car.

I would ask you please to not overload the septic system with longer showers or an overuse of toilet tissue. Many thanks!

Bring old hikers and / or boots! This is the country, and while the road I am on is short, it is also dirt; and with miles of beautiful dykelands to hike, you won't want to worry about dirtying your shoes!
HAVE FUN! Be a kid again...
Sunscreen too, and a hat is recommended during the summer, as we are near three beaches. Blue beach is renowned around the world for its fossils and is a 5 minute car drive away.

We had a very warm welcome from Fiona and enjoyed meeting other guests staying in the neighbouring rooms. All very clean, great shower and a spacious bedroom. Thanks for the delicious muffins too, very much appreciated!

Response from Fiona:
Hi Helen, I do thank you all for your polite suggestions as I complete my first summer as an airbnb host. You were flexible with small glitches and i am now looking into them all.Thank you again.I cannot add a second bathroom. but have very much appreciated the courtesy of guests ; I also offered the downstairs bathroom as well, which I keep clean and nice for just such times as this!Dishes are done by myself each evening, as i indicated; at this time I cannot offer a stove upstairs, so I listed what was available in my air bnb page. Because of this, I offer each room at lower than its value, and hope you found the price to be fair. I will contact air bnb to see how to choose a description that accurately reflects what I offer here, as at times what we have to choose from does not reflect each unique situation- that's air bnb, wonderful and varied!! You were entirely welcome in my home.

I really enjoyed my stay at Fiona's place. Fiona is a fantastic host who made it easy to check-in and was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and wineries in Wolfville. Her place was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

Fiona has a lovely place. Her home is one of the most beautiful I have stayed in. Her walkway to the view the seascape and land is to die for. I highly recommend Fiona's home.

Joining the air B and B is a dream coming true, with many months renovating and working hard to make my home as cosy and beautiful to stay and rest in as it can be; as a friend said, however, its your kindness that makes others welcome.A meaningful thing to say.
I love the peacefulness of my home, and yet have taught in Africa , England, Newfoundland and the North West Territories .After 5 years, I have finished fundraising for a 4 room orphanage school in Uganda,and now we are beginning to raise money for an elementary school.This is very close to my heart as I know the children and lived nearby the orphanage in Uganda.
I cannot live without my family, now all grown- we are very close!
I love to read thoughtful well written books, and to discuss them, as well as music and art!
My daughters are teaching me amazing recipes for healthy meals- fun!
I truly love to camp, and prefer a tiny spot in a B and B to a resort or hotel for I love to get to know others,wherever i go.
I love to walk by the ocean, to explore the forest, to watch animals.
As a "sometimes" teacher, I love to explore the " why's " of life, and laugh with children.I respect others, of all ages, and will listen and appreciate them.
I guess that's my life motto, to love God, to love others, and laugh ( and cry, at times) together.
