It's me again! I was the production coordinator on the Discovery Channel show that used Hedley House as our home base. I loved the place so much that I went back a week later with my girlfriend. We had a nice romantic weekend and we went to Upper Clements Park two days in a row. That place is a lot of fun!

Hedley House was a great place for us to get away, enjoy the stars and each other's company, and the private decks are a much welcome luxury. My better half and I will definitely be making this a yearly trip.

I stayed at Hedley House for one night while attending a wedding in a nearby town. I was very pleasantly surprised by the accommodations.

The accommodations were not new, but appeared to be very well maintained. I thought the hardwood floors were a very nice touch. The room had a small kitchenette, with an interesting fridge/stove combination unit. Our room had a good sized balcony that overlooked the water, complete with chairs and citronella candles. There was also beach access on the property. My only complaint was that the bathroom was a bit tiny - a stand up shower, not a bathtub.

All in all, a very nice stay in a quaint motel.

We have stayed at Hedley House twice, once in 2002 and once in 2005. There are not all that many places in NS where you can stay within a few feet of the water, but you can here. It was perfect for us--the completely relaxing vacation. The owners were very friendly, and you could not beat the view or the fascinating tides. In 2005 we ate in the dining room, and the meals were delicious--authentic Acadian (French) cooking. Hedley House accommodations are not fancy, which means you can bring your sandy feet inside, and your rock collection.

Digby is a modest town, with all the necessities: a Wal-Mart, a yarn and fabric shop, sensational Digby scallops. This is the place to come if you want to sit and read, watch the water and the weather, and not have a care in the world.

By the way, Nova Scotia has fascinating geological features, and this is a wonderful jumping off place if you want to see them: the tidal power station in Annapolis Royal, Joggins fossil cliffs, the agates and amethysts in the Bay, the Tidal Bore in Truro, where the force of the tide pushes the water in a river backwards! It's quite amazing.

Best to avoid this motel. There was nothing even satisfactory about this accommodation. But it is advertised on the internet. The person who checked us in appeared to be intoxicated.
