Imagine waking up and hearing the ocean just beyond your window as the highest tides on the planet surge into the Bay of Fundy, nurturing a coastal landscape millions of years in the making.



Your Anchor in the Bay of Fundy


Imagine waking up and hearing the ocean just beyond your window as the highest tides on the planet surge into the Bay of Fundy, nurturing a coastal landscape millions of years in the making. After a five-star breakfast, you spend your day exploring the shipbuilding history of St. Martins, passing through picturesque covered bridges and savouring the endless views from red sandstone cliffs. Each afternoon offers thrilling new discoveries along with the powerful tidal wonders of New Brunswick, balanced with just the right amount of rest and relaxation. In the evenings, savour the taste of the sea lovingly prepared by our chef, then sit by the fire as you watch the beautiful star show overhead. There’s magic here, and we can’t wait to share it with you. The best part is there’s nothing you have to do, except arrive.

“Waking up at the Beach Street Inn was an experience I’ll cherish for life. The hosts were gracious, helpful, and knew the area like the experts they are—everything was thought of and taken care of so all I had to do was focus on was exploring the Bay of Fundy, St. Martins, and having a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. Amazing food, service, and ambience. Don’t miss this opportunity to fill your Bay of Fundy passport—you won’t regret it.”
