Enjoy the Tranquility, Feel the Serenity, Share the Felicity, Find your Solace


Graham’s Pioneer Retreat is on a magnificent fifty-acre property at Centreville, Digby County. There are four cottages, built on a hillside, overlooking St. Mary’s Bay, the body of water that separates Digby Neck from the Nova Scotia mainland. Saint Mary’s Bay is a branch of the famous Bay of Fundy, sharing the same high tides.

The self-catering cottages are newly built and designed to be functional and comfortable. Each unit has a large deck, propane barbecue and panoramic view of Digby Neck and the bay (to observe local fishing boats, seals, porpoise and various species of birds and shorebirds). The interior walls of locally milled knotty pine are warm and inviting. Each cottage has all of the amenities including a fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and propane fireplace. Everything is provided – pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, cooking utensils, bedding, and a great selection of games and books.
