Welcome to Pines Bay Acres! Wintergreen is nestled in the woods near Shelburne Harbour, Nova Scotia. Walking distance to the historic village of Shelburne (groceries, restaurants, tourism) and the Islands Park. Short drive to the beaches and Sandy Point Lighthouse. Perfect area for long walks and bike rides on the trail. Enjoy the bay renting our double kayaks. This site features 12V electricity, dishes, BBQ, cooler, drinking water in Jerry cans, but NO shower or wifi.

The space
Once parked in the allocated space, you'll walk thru a cute short path in the woods to reach Wintergreen.

-Bedding : Wintergreen has two bunk beds (double at the bottom and twin at the top) which allows up to 6 persons to sleep comfortably. Sheets, pillows, quilt and additional blankets are provided.

-Meals : Inside the yurt, a kitchenette with dishes, pans and pots as well as some dishcloth and rags. You will also be given some spices, instant coffee, tea and herbal tea to make your meals more interesting. A big cooler will keep your food fresh.
The solid wooden table just under the dome can seat up to 6 persons (4 chairs and a bench) and will benefit from the soft natural sunlight.
Two 20L containers of water will provide you with well enough water for all of your uses (dishes, washing hands, drinking...).
For the perfect twilight family grill, you will have access to the BBQ and a big picnic table.

-Toilet : a private compost toilet and access to a small hand washing station are offered to you.

-Relaxation: Better disconnect from the turmoil of life through a nice stove fire, unless you would rather lay down in a hammock with you favorite book. Extra wood may be purchased if desired.

**A common firepit is in being installed**

-Activities: Have your pick between kilometers of CNR path passing through our forest, also leading to the historic town of Shelburne if you want to access it by foot or bike and head over for fa museum, restaurant or many other possibilities to satisfy your curiosity. If you prefer, you may also rent one of our three tandem kayaks and go explore Shelburne Harbour.
If you are more inclined to stay at the site and enjoy the calm, you may also elect to use some of the available board games with your family or friends.

We are also slowly developing great farm products like organically grown fine herbs and fresh eggs from our free run hens, do not hesitate to ask for these.
