Sea Glass Cottage is ideally located within the village of St Martins New Brunswick. St. Martins is a village on the Bay of Fundy in Saint John County, New Brunswick, Canada. The village was founded as Quaco by 1783 by soldiers from the disbanded loyalist King’s Orange Rangers. It was incorporated in 1967. Led by shipbuilders, it was the third most productive shipbuilding town in the Maritimes, producing over 500 ships. Shipbuilding declined after the 1870s and today tourism is the major industry. St. Martins is an ideal place for a relaxing escape from the city. But don’t let its size fool you; there’s plenty here to keep even the most active visitors occupied. Here are just a few great reasons to visit the village of St. Martins, New Brunswick: Attractions include: -St. Martins Sea Caves...Sea Glass Cottage is ideally located within the village of St Martins New Brunswick.

Shipbuilding declined after the 1870s and today tourism is the major industry. St. Martins is an ideal place for a relaxing escape from the city. But don’t let its size fool you; there’s plenty here to keep even the most active visitors occupied. Here are just a few great reasons to visit the village of St. Martins, New Brunswick: Attractions include: -St. Martins Sea Caves : The Village's premier attraction is the St. Martins sea caves. Walkers and hikers consult the tidal charts to find the best time to walk the ocean floor out to sea caves, caverns and arches. The tide rises, soon erasing their footsteps, filling the caves and caverns with water. The tide rises and falls every 6 hours and 13 minutes , creating new times for high and low tides every day. The tidal range can be up to 38 feet on our shores in St. Martins. -The beach and tidal harbor : St. Martins is a place of Tidal Wonder at the heart of the Bay of Fundy. Life is governed here by the rhythm of the world's highest tides. A colorful fleet of fishing boats wait in the Bay for the high tide to rise and fill the empty harbor with water so that they can unload their catch. At low tide the boats sit in the mud. Its a daily tidal cycle that has been showcased for many years in a time lapse film at Disney's Epcot Center in Florida. At low tide, you can also enjoy miles of beaches, both sandy and rocky, stretching the length of the village. You don’t have to stay on land to discover the Fundy tides. There are several operators in St. Martins who rent kayaks and lead tours along the coast so you can get up close and personal with the cliffs even at high tide. -The start of the Fundy Trail : Fundy Trail is a 2,559 hectare/6,323 acre park featuring a 19 km/12 mile parkway hugging the southern coast of New Brunswick with stunning views of the world-renowned Bay of Fundy. Less than an hour from Saint John in St. Martins, visitors can explore the trails that connect to paths leading to pristine beaches, cross a suspension bridge, see tumbling waterfalls and Precambrian rocks or stop by the interpretive center and discover the rich history of a once thriving lumber industry. Home to the beginning of the Fundy Footpath hiking trail, one of the top 50 hiking paths in the world. -Two covered bridges : St. Martins is home to two covered bridges. In fact, popular lore has it; it’s the only place in the world you can have two covered bridges and a lighthouse in the same photo. - The Quaco Head Lighthouse : The original location for our lighthouse was on the rock you see in the bay. After that burned it was moved to shore, after that was replaced by the lighthouse that's there now. The original eventually became our Visitor Information Center. -The Quaco Museum and Library -Miles of unspoiled beaches : Our area has miles of beaches. Some are sandy while others are rocky, all are unique. You can reach some by land while others are accessible only by kayak. You can enjoy a walk or a day. -The highest tides in the world -1 1/2 hours drive to the border of USA -Many places to dine and sample fresh local fare, fresh seafood and lobster and world famous chowder -sample the friendliness of the locals and discover the charms of a small Maritime town it’s well worth taking a few days to discover this hidden gem of a village. It’s the perfect base to explore the Fundy Trail, experience the impressive Fundy tides, and feast on excellent seafood, all while enjoying small-town Atlantic Canadian hospitality. A complementary welcome basket will be given to a booking of a week or more.

Tranquility and pet friendly
We booked Seaglass Cottage in St.Martins, NB, Canada to attend the village Old Home Week. We wanted to spend time with friends and look for old acquaintances. The cottage itself is set in a very peaceful environment, and on a quiet lane. The wraparound deck was wonderful for morning coffee, but the small deck off one of the bedrooms,on the first floor, was heaven...secluded from passing cars and neighbours. A wonderful place to share a late night glass of wine or an early morning coffee in your PJ’s. On arrival, the house was clean and comfortable. After a family tragedy..it was the perfect place to relax and seek solitude. If you are asthmatic ...you will find mostly hardwood floors in the cottage. The plus for us was two things: 1). That our Schnauzer was made welcome to this cottage, and 2) the owners were very approachable, and willing to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible...a plus when renting for a week, or month stay. We loved all the special touches to make this cottage as welcoming as possible and have a homey feel. The added touch of being able to wash your clothes, in the full size washer and dryer, was fantastic! This cottage is setup so two families could go together, but each have their own floor for privacy and space. The people around were friendly....and if you were seeking homemade sausage and corn beef....the little grocery store on the Main Street was the place to go. And never leave without sampling real haddock fish and chips ...massive pieces...at the Caves Restaurant in the beach. Whether you want beach time in an ocean, or hiking on the Fundy Trail, or rest and solitude, this cottage is placed perfectly for all. We would like to stay again..perhaps in Autumn when the leaves are turning on the Fundy Trail.

Can't wait to go back, fantastic place!!
We stayed here for three weeks and loved every minute of it. The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. Very comfortable beds and sofa which were ideal for lounging around and the place has a really hospitable homely feeling. It's evident that it's been completely refurbished to high end speck with a lot of love, care and attention. Large windows and patio doors allow for a lot of natural light and great views of the surroundings and wild life. I loved having a cup of coffee and chilling on the veranda first thing in the morning, breathing in the fresh air and watching the birds. To be honest I didn't want to leave!! Definitely value for your money, I'm sure the owner will put the price up once the bookings start rolling in!! The local town is just a short walk away with a few shops a stunning old lighthouse and some restaurants. The town has been looked after impeccably and its well worth a good look at the stunning coast line and old beautiful buildings. The people of st Martins are some of the friendliest people Iv ever come across when traveling and we made some new friends. I really recommend doing the Fundy trail to get closer to nature, just allow yourself a lot of time as it's massive! We also took a drive into America across the border which was great fun and only took a few hours including stopping at one of the amazing truck stop cafes for breakfast. Can't wait to go back!!
