Spent seven nights at the Fisher House exploring the Bay of Fundy area in wonderful summer weather. The house had all we needed and more with a relaxing garden in secluded environs and a great Bbq and fire pit .My brother and his wife along with ourselves had a fabulous time here and would recommend .
