BABBLING BROOK

Bed & Breakfast

ABOUT

Babbling Brook B&B has been developed based on an 1896 heritage home that has been completely restored.  A large shed is attached and a gazebo is on the property.  Our B&B is located about 5 km south of North Head on Route 776 and is situated across the road from Castalia marsh, an important wildlife refuge.  There are two rooms upstairs with heat panels (1 queen; 2 single beds) and a 26 ft modern trailer (sleeps 4 and up to 6; air-con) for nightly rentals.  During busy periods we have two single bed rooms (in the porch & office) for $80/night , and 1 King bedroom (includes its own tv) for $110/night. A crib and child’s bed are also available to use in the rooms. The house has 2 bathrooms (each with a bath tub). The trailer has a stove, fridge, microwave and gas stove as well as a toilet and shower.

 

The owners, Dr. Bob Hay and his wife Jasmine, have been on Grand Manan since February.  Bob has been an academic, government manager (Australia), army officer (Canada) and wildlife management consultant.  He is also an expert birdwatcher and can offer half day tours of the island.  Jasmine hails from Thailand and takes care of our (almost) 2 year old child.  She makes great Thai food, available to guests in the evening.  Bob is also a novelist (3 published so far) and a singer/songwriter (7 original songs).

 

Our B&B is modeled on an Eco-retreat.  As such, there is wildlife and bush around, a campfire set up by the creek, recycling and an outdoor barbecue.  There’s no smoking and water usage restrictions (e.g. 10 minute showers).  Boats (canoe; dingy) and bicycles can be used locally (a liability form must be completed first).  Filtered water is available for guests.  The laundry can be used for guests staying more than 2 nights.
