This lovely 19th century farmhouse is the perfect place to host friends, family, or colleagues, while enjoying nature in all its glory. Sunshine House and the surrounding property is an ideal setting for retreats, training programs, family reunions, weddings, and relaxing nature-based vacations. If you are looking to unwind, slow down, rejuvenate, and truly connect with yourself, others, and nature, you will love it here!
Sunshine House sits adjacent to Windhorse Farm, a sustainably managed Acadian woodlot, and wood products supplier. Visitors to Sunshine House have direct access to many miles of walking trails through Windhorse's 200 acre pristine and magical Acadian forest preserve. Enjoy evening campfires, a wood-fired sauna, swims in Wentzell lake, and explorations of the old barn. The large wrap around porch offers views of sunrise over the lake and the stars at night, and a great spot to enjoy a good book and the sounds of nature. It's a short 15-minute drive to the town of Bridgewater for groceries and other shops. Located near the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, it's easy to visit Chester, Mahone Bay, and Lunenberg for sea kayaking, swimming, sailing, playing on the beach, shopping for antiques, and dining out.
