Welcome to the Wentworth Valley, and our beautiful, bright, and warm timber frame home. Enjoy the open concept space, the warm fire, and the true delight of a four season country chalet. Our goal is your comfort. Sit in the library and catch up with a good book, or have coffee in the sunroom while you watch the morning dew burn off the grass. We have enjoyed inviting our friends and extended family to share and enjoy our home for decades: now we extend that invitation to you!
The home was built by our Mom & Dad in the early 1980's. Starting out originally as a barn style timber framed building, it gradually took on a more unique shape and style as rooms and expansions were added throughout the years. The result is an open concept, warm and brightly lit chalet unlike any other. The look is familiar but not dated, modern but not imposing. Above all, our space is comfortable. Featuring a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, library (music and literature) and with enough space to sleep 9 guests, this is a rental space perfect for large families or small groups of friends. Set on a hill and surrounded by dense forest, privacy is one of our most valued assets. The cozy, warm and wooden aesthetic is perfect for winter weekend getaways on the slopes at Ski Wentworth. The summertime boasts incredible weather, top notch star gazing and luscious shade gardens. Without a doubt, the views of our autumn tree line offers a multitude of colour that you won't find anywhere else. Amazing solid wood construction throughout the house and high ceilings make for excellent acoustics. It is the perfect space for a songwriting retreat, or a secluded recording session. Our home offers endless opportunity for inspiration, introspection and creativity!
Our home is nestled in the stunning Wentworth Valley. You'll find yourself just a few mins to the public waterfront access on Mattatall Lake, and for the winter adventurer, just a ten minute drive to Ski Wentworth. The house is surrounded by open fields and 90 acres of beautiful woodland, so privacy and seclusion is yours to cherish.
Take a short 15 min drive to the quaint village of Tatamagouche where you will find a large grocery store, farmers market, restaurants, an artisan chocolate shop, excellent pubs, and of course, the great Tatamagouche Brewing Company.
Closer still (5 min drive), is the Wentworth Market. This one stop shop offers baked goods, pizza, snacks, gasoline, ice, firewood, a small liquor store, toiletries and much more. If it's a hot meal served with some local colour that you seek, you can always check out Patsy's Dinner just mins from the house. Slightly farther away (20 mins) you will find Whirligigs Cafe, serving fresh dishes made from scratch and showcasing stunning views of Wallace Bay.
Hiking and Mountain biking trails abound in the Wentworth Valley, and outdoor enthusiasts love the fishing, hunting, and access to snowmobile and ATV trails.
