This place takes me back to my childhood in the 60's. It's a line of rooms where you can park in front of your room. It's very clean and cozy. My room had a deck overlooking the beach. No AC but open the windows and it cools down nicely. Small kitchenette with the basics. Run by a nice couple. No...

The views from our private deck were outstanding. We walked out on the ocean bottom during low tide in the Bay of Fundy. The breakfast was above average. A picnic area with a gas grill was available for our use. The rustic room was small but well stocked. The shower was so tiny I couldn't bend over to pick up...

Great little spot away from the hussle and bussel. I spent most of the first day sitting on the deck reading and watching the tides. My husband and I were certainly pleased with our find. The space was very clean and equipped. We would stay again for sure.

Stayed here for an overnight visit of whale watching and hitting Upper Clements. Joanne was very accommodating and we were treated to a nice breakfast with live music. The room was quaint but with a great view of the basin off our private balcony. We took some time to explore the basin as well. Was also only minutes away from...

What a fantastic beginning to our Nova Scotia adventure. We spent two nights and would have happily stayed longer. The view was incredible, and we were able to walk out on the tidal flats at low tide, (in rubber boots) and then watch the tide fill in the bay from our balcony. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and clean....

We spent two nights at the Hedley House and we're more than happy with our stay. We arrived late at night, so didn't realize till the morning just how beautiful the location was. You have a perfect view of Smiths Cove (and the famous Fundy tides) from the deck of your room. The property is loaded with beautiful flowers. The...

We had stayed at the Hedley House this past summer, and we are SO glad we did! What amazing hospitality from Joanne, gorgeous views from your own private deck & clean, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was also delicious (my husband LOVED the muffins). We will be returning next year, hopefully for a few more nights. Worth staying at and checking out,...

This is a small motel about two miles from Digby on the shore of a tidal basin consisting of 14 rooms. It is rustic but in a quiet location. From your deck you can watch low and high tides of the basin. The innkeepers are personable and provide live folk music during breakfast which includes delicious home made muffins.
