This is a magical historic home perched with a beautiful view of the river. We felt very at home! Thank you for a enriching getaway

Laura Mae, I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay so much. It was a real pleasure to have you as our guest and we hope you return! In regards to your comment about the kitchen counter top, it was actually thoroughly cleaned, but there is an issue with the varnish which, for some reason, has a slightly sticky surface (no matter how much it is cleaned!) but plans are underway to recoat the surface properly in the very near future. Hope to see you get a chance to visit Bear River again!

I would definitely recommend Eva's place to anyone travelling to west coast Nova scotia. Eva was very quick to get back to me and to answer any questions I had. The property is lovely with an amazing view from the back deck. The location is central to Annapolis and Digby and the…

Hi Marilyn, I'm so glad you had a wonderful stay and especially that you saw the bald eagle from the back balcony! Good to hear that you enjoyed Digby's famous scallops on your last night...they are my favourite seafood treat, bar none! We're glad we could provide the opportunity for Rich to play some guitar in the parlour and for you to be an appreciative listener (I think there's nothing like live music to make a visit special). Hope you can come again to visit; you're very welcome! Cheers, Eva

This place is the ultimate Nova Scotia experience! Kind hosts welcome you to a beautiful and well kept 19th home. We arrived when dark, and it was like Christmas morning to wake up to the gorgeous view. As hungry travelers arriving in a small town closed up for the night, it was …

Bear River is a world of it's own. It feels so removed from Nova Scotia, the community is rich in history, and artistic passions. Eva is an amazing host that is non-intrusive but very easy to communicate with. The home is absolutely one of a kind, and the balcony view is really…

I am an artist and a fiddler/mandolin player and love to travel and paint. I fell in love with Bear River last year, finding it an incredibly inspiring place to be as a visual artist, and as a musician. My artwork is displayed in the house, and it's for sale...if you'd like mor…
