Our village is called Hortonville. This is a mixed rural neighbourhood. We are within the boundaries of a Unesco World Heritage site, walking distance of the Grand Pre National Historic Sight, the French Cross and miles of dykes along the mighty Bay of Fundy, the highest tides in the world. It is a one hour drive to Halifax, the largest city east of Montreal and a one hour drive to the beautiful South Shore of NS (Lunenburg, Mahone Bay & Chester). There are so many places to see near-by, and beaches to walk, such as Hall's Harbour, Blue Beach (well-known for its fossils) and lots of fine eating and dining at local wineries and restaurants in the Wolfville area. This is an agricultural area with numerous farm markets and delicious local food. It is also a cultural centre with music in the pubs, live theatre and a wealth of things to see and do. We are within walking distance of an organic coffee brewer (JustUs coffee) and Domain de Grand Pre, a winery and restaurant. We love it here and hope you will enjoy it as well.
Mark & I (Beth) both are retired and our three sons are grown-up and married with children. We have owned several sailboats over the years and have enjoyed sailing on the south shore and around Halifax. The Bay of Fundy is just over the hill from us, but not a boat friendly bay due to the extreme tides. I love to garden and put in a vegetable garden every summer, as well as try to manage the many flowers and fruit that grow on our property.There are swimming beaches within 5 km, on the Bay of Fundy. Fantastic beaches an hour away on the South Shore.
