Bear River Millyard Bear River
Tides, wineries, Mi’kmaq culture and artist studios: that is Bear River in a nutshell. Its unique location on a tidal river, nestled in a valley gives it an ‘out of this world’ feel. This little village offers a different pace of life. There are no traffic lights, no fast food restaurants, no big box stores and people have time for a chat. Historical and modern-day references to this village include “The most unique community in Nova Scotia”; “The Switzerland of Nova Scotia” and “Village on Stilts”. Mouth of the River empties into the Digby gut and into the infamous Bay of Fund.
Located on the West Bank of the Bear River about 2 minute walk to town. The 5 Acre Site seems cascade down and float in the river as if it is one with it. Such a secluded site to take in the tranquility of this Ancient Tidal River but close enough to town to go out for a coffee, drinks or bite to eat.
