Cresthaven, a waterfront bed and breakfast, lies on the shores of historic Maitland along the Glooscap Trail, one of Nova Scotia's pristine treasures. Situated on the shores of the Bay of Fundy, Cresthaven provides one of the finest examples of Maitland's elegant historical homes that has brought the village to the forefront and made it Nova Scotia's first Heritage Conservation District. Constructed for the most part by the master carpenters of the local ship building industry, the homes of Maitland provide an extraordinary exhibition of unique 19th century architecture. Cresthaven was built in the Classical Revival Style for Captain John Macomber in 1859.
Situated high atop a bank overlooking the Bay of Fundy where the historic Shubenacadie river branches off, our property includes what was the original wharf, where residents would board a small ferry to be carried across the river. You can still see the posts from the original wharf if you venture onto the beach for a stroll at low tide. The sunrise and sunsets are always breathtaking.
Cresthaven features three luxurious suites, all with ensuite baths, fireplaces and water views. Return to a simpler time and come relax with us, enjoying complete privacy, whether you lounge on the deck to watch the famous Tidal Bore or decide to enjoy a walk along the beach at low tide, where you will be treated by plenty of local wildlife including the majestic eagle.
