Local attractions include Burntcoat Head Park (site of the world’s highest recorded tides), the Walton Lighthouse, The Cheverie Marsh Trail, Avondale Sky Winery and Meander River Farm & Brewery.

Rooms 2 & 3 each have a queen bed and a 3 pc (shower, room 2) and 4 pc (room 3) bathroom. Rooms 2 & 3 share a second-floor deck.

Our Restaurant

At The Flying Apron, We Do Local! Our menu changes weekly to feature the best local ingredients and it’s not uncommon to see producers walk through the front door with baskets of fresh from the field produce. Pair your meal with a glass of Nova Scotia’s best wine or local craft beer. End your experience with an amazing house-made dessert and Just Us! organic, fair trade coffee. Our dining room is open year-round and our seasonal patio offers a view of the pond, gardens and resident chickens. At this foodie haven you can indulge your love of food even further with treats from our food shop or by signing up for a class in the Cookery School.
