This property is a gem! We were able to travel around Nova Scotia with a central home base and enjoyed every moment we spent there. The owners are stylish and artistic and their home is a reflection of that. Highly recommended!
If you’re thinking about starting a vacation rental yourself, I’d advise you to stay at Forest Hill House just to see how well it can be done. First, this home is well-situated above the town of Wolfville with a great view of the harbour from the front verandah, which has a barbecue and picnic table.
The house itself is kitted out with everything a family would need in the way of bedclothes, kitchen appliances, utensils, etc. And everything is clean, neat, and well-organised. We’ve stayed in vacation rentals where dishes and cutlery seem to be the mismatched survivors of several generations, and where cupboards are stuffed with condiments and leftovers from previous tenants. Not here. Everything is uncluttered and orderly. The only consumables were some cooking oil, tea and coffee, salt and pepper.
The beds were just right for our family of father, mother, and three boys. The three upstairs beds and the downstairs Ikea sofa bed were all comfortable.
The owners were always available in case there were questions or problems; in fact, Mark paid a visit just to make sure that all was going well. It was.
I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to friends and family.
The view alone makes this a great destination, but the house itself is also a joy - comfortable, clean, stylishly appointed, and well-stocked with kitchen equipment and paper goods. Peaceful, quiet rural setting. Located near the lively town of Wolfville and very near several excellent wineries. Lots of great hiking, biking, walking, exploring, eating, drinking, foodie-tourism, and cultural/historical activities in the area, but this house is also great for relaxing on the porch with a good book. Mark and Trina were excellent hosts - greeting us with a warm welcome and making sure we had whatever we needed. We would definitely stay here again!
Mark and Trina's place overlooking the Minas basin is a beautiful as advertised. My husband and I stayed here while we waited to move into our new house. Mark greeted us warmly that first night with fresh strawberries, lovely conversation and a willingness help us find our way in our new home.
The house is cozy and very well-appointed.
I would highly recommend staying with Mark and Trina.
A lovely house on a beautiful spot, overlooking the Gaspereau Valley, with a Veranda to watch the tides and the sun go down; great wineries and the town of Wolfville nearby - a perfectly clean house with cosy bedrooms and fully equipped kitchen - a peaceful setting and incredible nice hosts. We would definetly stay here again next time.
Mark and Trina's place was great! Clean, cozy farmhouse conveniently located in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. Mark and Trina were easy to get in touch with, and went the extra step of stopping by to see if we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this rental!
