Mary began saving for the beautiful white house across the street when she was ten. In 1976 her piggy bank was finally emptied onto the table and Florentine Manor was hers.....

.... By now she was married to Cyril, who she ‘got across the lake’, and the pair spent the next three years sanding, painting and wallpapering, a Herculean task given the size of the house. Built in the 1860s, the house has had only three owners and its most obviously striking feature is the profusion of windows, 44 in total. No bedroom has fewer than two and the refreshing result is a house infused with light. The mottled sunlight streams in through oak and birch trees and cool Bay of Fundy breezes provide natural air-conditioning. The rooms are cheery affairs with beautiful handmade quilts, gleaming wooden floors, antique beds and bucolic views. And you may find some dahlias fresh from the garden. Nineteen years on Mary still loves what she does and delights in sharing her childhood dream with her guests. Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks and endless other activities are within close range and Mary will happily point you in the right direction. If you want to relax, and lift your spirits then head for Harvey on the Bay of Fundy. This is a place to banish those blues. Dinner by reservation for guests only. Packed lunches can be provided.
