Welcome to our Bay Window by the Bay located at Black Rock, Nova Scotia. A glamping experience in a peace-love-hapiness vintage Volkswagen high roof van. Views of the Bay of Fundy, home of the worlds highest tides, spectacular sunsets, and star filled night skies await.
Can you spot the Black Rock sea monster often spotted swimming in the waters of Creature Beach - only a moments walk away.

The space
You'll be staying in our resto-mod vintage 1973 VW van. A rare to North America model that was originally made for the European market only. The van has a fixed fiberglass high roof people 6ft and under will be able to stand up inside comfortably. There is room for storage under the full sized bed. The van has electricity for reading lights, power outlets for charging,a cozy sofa lounge in the front with a bookshelf stocked with reading material and card games. There is also a small space heater stored on the bottom shelf in case it gets cold outside.

The fishing shack inspired........shack houses the kitchenette and bathroom. The kitchenette doors open and hook into place with rope. The left door has the option to be secured with wooden "D'oar Locks" on the roof at a 90 degree angle in case its windy. Sink with running (not hot) water, burner plate and all utensils, dishes, cutlery, kettle, etc. needed to make your country camping cookery easy are available.
Around back of the shack you will find the eco-friendly bathroom; low flow camper toilet, sink, and solar heated campoing shower. Towels and wash clothes provided.

Things to note:
**Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we want to do our best to ensure everyone's safety and health. As such we are committed to adhering to proper cleaning and disinfecting protocols for the site. At this time we are requesting that guests bring their own bedding/sleeping bags for the stay. Disinfectant cleaner and hand sanitizer will be available on site . **
If a shower is needed , the best time to have a quick one is late afternoon or early evening when the water is at its warmest for the day. Temperature depends on Mother Nature.
Low level electricity is present. Campers are wired differently than homes and there are limits to the power load. Cooking with all lights at the site lit and charging a phone or two in the van will be fine.
Remember, glamour camping is still camping. :)
Creature Beach, home of the Black Rock sea monster is located a short walk around the corner from our site. Further along the road is Black Rock Lighthouse. The beaches are great for site seeing, exploring for treasures, and beach fires(please act responsibly and follow any NS burn restricions), but not for swimming. The Bay of Fundy is where you'll fine the highest tides in the world and therfore has very strong currents and undertows.
