At Rafters Ridge Cottages, on the banks of the beautiful Shubenacadie River, visitors can relax and absorb all the splendour, solitude and excitement the Bay of Fundy and Annapolis Valley region has to offer. On our 180-acre wilderness site, you may raft the exciting tidal bore on our two- or four-hour rafting trips or you may put your feet up and relax on one of two large outdoor decks and view the tidal bore with a warm beverage by your side.
Join us for a carefree vacation in Central Nova Scotia. Our spacious cottages are a home away from home and our location is ideal for those who wish to explore the region during half-day or day trips. Open year-round, or cozy cottages are a brief 30-minute drive from the Halifax Airport and the beautiful town of Truro.
Our accommodations include 10 air-conditioned 1- and 2-bedroom cedar and pine housekeeping cottages with double and queen beds and 4-piece baths. We also have three 1- and 5-bedroom log chalets. Satellite television, propane fireplace, deck, barbecues, and cots are available. Spa services and laundry facilities are available to guests.
Guests can indulge their adventurous spirit on several miles of groomed hiking and skiing trails, in the outdoor, above-ground swimming pool, or with a rousing game of paintball. Or they can relax and sit around the fire pits and view the soaring eagles.
Sandbar is our licensed restaurant, offering daily Rafters' Specials, home-cooked meals featuring locally-sourced products, and catering for groups or weddings. We are a proud member of the Bay of Fundy Recommended Experiences Program.
