This charming little apartment is on the upper floor of a downtown historic home (separate side entrance).
Quiet and cosy, yet just a 3-5 min walk to cafés, restaurants, trails, bars, shops, independent movie theatre(!), art galleries, and grocery (+farmers market, bakeries, and specialty). COVID-19 business updates below. 1-min walk to the iconic and serene waterfowl park, don’t miss walking the beautiful boardwalks through birches and birds! Close walking distance to Mount Allison University.
The self-contained 2nd-floor suite has a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and separate entrance.
**Length of stay discounts: Discounts of 15% for one week, 25% for two weeks, and 45% for a month or more will automatically be applied to your price when selecting dates. I have temporarily set a 3-night minimum.
**COVID-19 precautions: Cleanliness has always been a priority, but I have been especially careful to personally wipe down all counters, taps, knobs, switches, appliances etc with disinfectant. The couch and curtains are sprayed with a Lysol disinfectant spray between visits. As always, bedding, and towels are washed and extras are kept in a pantry along with extra cleaning supplies for the comfort of guests. Basic toiletries such as hand soap, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner are provided. Floors are cleaned as usual with vacuuming and mopping but are of a vintage that they still may appear scuffed and worn.***
There isn't a living room, but a loveseat and small table with chairs are in the kitchen area for lounging, and Netflix in the bedroom. Furnished with books, art, cozy decor, wifi, and games, there is plenty to do inside. However, you couldn't be better situated to walk to everything to see and do in "bagtown" (and there is a lot!).
A pantry holds extra towels and linens, an iron & ironing board, a hairdryer, and more. Also supplied are basic toiletries, a microwave, stove, full refrigerator, kettle, toaster, coffee press, coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic, butter, often (but not always) fresh eggs from our chickens... if you're wondering what else, please just ask!
Please note that this second-floor apartment is accessed by a fairly steep interior stairway.
PETS: I'm open to the possibility of you bringing a pet, but please discuss this with me before booking.
I have a pet cat Petri downstairs, in a separate part of the house from the apartment. Please let me know (preferably before your arrival) if you are not exactly a cat person or are allergic, as he typically has access by (lockable) pet door to your downstairs entry. Petri may vie hard for your attention and for most guests he is a bonus, but it is easy for me to deter him if especially I know ahead of your visit.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of a vibrant downtown with small university town charm. So many unique and independently owned businesses are just a three-minute walk down the street. Only one minute from your door, you are stepping into our beautiful waterfowl park in the middle of town.
***COVID-19 updated Neighbourhood Info: The adjacent waterfowl park is open for walking, but the boardwalk sections are one-way only to facilitate 2m distancing; signage is posted in the park (see a map in listing photos). Jogging should be kept off the boardwalks as passing is discouraged, but our streets and sidewalks along with some trails are suitable.
Some of the local cafes and restaurants are noted as closed below, but many great ones are open for pickup/delivery only. The farmer's markets have some options also.
The street, Weldon, parallels the NB Trail, and there are several nearby parks, including one at the foot of the street.
Daytips are almost limitless from the heart of the heart of the Maritimes. I encourage you to explore and ask me questions. Sackville is a 30 min drive from the Dieppe (Moncton) airport, 40 mins from Parlee Beach, 40 mins from the bridge to PEI, just over an hour to Hopewell Rocks, and about a 2 hour drove from Halifax.
I have created a digital guidebook of my recommendations, that you should have access to through your airbnb booking. I will also have a physical binder of information at the apartment.
Some highlights: ++All are a 3-5min walk down Weldon, on Bridge, or near the Intersection of Bridge & Main, unless otherwise noted++
