Grand Manan has been on our bucket list for some time so our expectations were high. Brian and Brenda were great to work with both by phone and email. The photos and written description provided an accurate description of their renovated home and adjacent apartment. The rental facility was clean, well appointed with lots of space for three adults. The bedrooms are large, one king, one queen, both offering very comfortable rest. The suite is bordered on one side by the short and quiet road to Seal Cove Beach, one of the nicest on the island and on the other by Seal Cove tidal creek, hence a very quiet place There are two decks, one down with a picnic table at the creek side. There is a TV, but we never even turned it on, we enjoyed the island, its spectacular scenery and friendly people such that we required no annoying modern interference in our otherwise orderly and pleasant vacation. One caution, the unit currently available is up a flight of stairs so mobility is a factor. The Smokehouse as the name suggests was once used for smoking fish for home and international markets. The industry has disappeared, but several smokehouse remain in vary states of repair. Brian and Brenda have rescued on of these historic workplaces and put it to a contemporary use. The entire area has been recognized by the Canadian Historic Sites Board. Seal Cove is well situated to explore Grand Manan and its many delights.

“Very laid back rustic cottage with everything you need.”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Loved the historical location in Seal Cove with all the old smokehouses. The sand beach was a few minute walk away and beautiful. It was fun watching the tidal creek go up and down. We loved our stay and loved Grand Manan Island! Lots of beautiful scenery and hiking. Friendly locals.

We stayed at the Seal Cove Beach Smokeshed Cottages for a week and we really loved it! The cottage was very nice and clean. It is literally 2 minutes walk away from the Seal Cove beach (a very large sandy beach). The cottage is an old smoke shed that was very well renovated. The housekeeper who welcomed us was very nice and she gave us very good informations. We would definitely go back there for our next vacation!
