About Cathy and Ken Scott
My husband and I grew up in this area and were thrilled when the opportunity arose to purchase this cottage. Currently we can only use it during most of July and August and wish we could stay longer, especially in the fall. We purchased this place particularly for the awesome view from the deck and large windows facing the river. We love the village of Grand Bay-Westfield where you can pick up everything you need without going to the city. We also enjoy walking along the ocean beaches on warmer days where we expierience the tides at all levels. Restaurants in Saint John and Fredericton are very good offering any type of seafood you may enjoy. The butcher and bake shop in the village of Grand Bat/Westfield are excellent. There is also a popular seafood market approximately 15 min away. Many of our friends and neighbours in Alberta look forward to travelling to the Maritimes now that there is perfect place to stay. We hope you will as well.

Why Cathy and Ken Scott chose Morrisdale
This property is so conveniently located to everything you may wish to enjoy or visit in this area.We are approximately one hour to the U.S. border, one hour to Fredercton, 3 hours to Nova Scotia and 2.5 hours to Prince Edward Island, if your desire is to travel to PEI or Nova Scotia as part of your holiday. For those who want to stay close, there are numerous day trips to experience the tides at Hopewell Cape or just tour the Kingston peninsula with its many ferries and beautiful river views and historical cement warfs built in the early 1900's to accommodate the river boats of the period. Saint John is a port city and the oldest incorporated city in Canada. There is a tremendous amount of historical significance that can be appreciated in this city.
What makes this Cabin unique
River front, beach front with private beach. Boat mooring, large south and east facing deck complete with a fire pit and wood. The cottage is well layed out in an open concept with large river facing windows. You will appreciate the beach type decor and cottage feel. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and sitting on the beautiful and comfortable adirondack chairs, drinking your coffe and viewing the boats travelling up and down the river. Friday evenings are especially busy watching the sailboats and river boats travel up river to the numerous boating areas for the weekend. Some of these water craft are very impressive. We have our own private beach but there is also a public beach if you wish to drive your car directly to the beach as opposed to using our stairs. The beach is directly in front of the Morrisdale Beach Road lighthouse. There are numerous free riding ferries from the main land to all parts of the Kingston Peninsula which is a popular drive to take during the summer. There is a marina at the Evandale Ferry crossing ( 15 min drive) where you can enjoy a meal or just a cool drink. Kids are welcome to play in the pool at this oldest standing River Boat Hotel (The Eveleigh).

Beautiful oasis to relax in
Absolutely loved the cottage and it had everything we needed and wanted for a relaxing weekend. Bed was super comfy. Easy to access and find.
Hi Barbara. So glad you enjoyed your time there and the weather cooperated. I’m very grateful for your review work hard at trying to make everyone feel comfortable and content there. All the best in your future travel plans sincerely Cathy
We had the absolute best time during our stay at Cathy and ken’s home away!
We were able to enjoy all the fall colours, a fire at night with the cool air, and we were able to host family that lived in new Brunswick for appetizers and card games! It was everything we hoped for when looking for a cozy cottage to spend thanksgiving weekend!
Thank you Terri Lynn. We strive hard to make our guests as comfortable and pleased as possible. Your comments are extremely important and appreciated. All the best for your future travels.
An idyllic setting for a lovely rest
The house was spotless yet homey, well-stocked, with everything in great working order. The natural surroundings were stunning and peaceful. Top marks all around!
Tranquil bit close to St John
What a lovely cottage! Beautiful views and Cathy and Ken have outfitted the property with everything you could need. Very clean and inviting. Very close to St John for exploring. Truly felt like a home away from home!!
Thank you Angela. We hope to see you again.Safe travels
A home away from home
Completely furnished, beautifully decorated with local and themed art and antique pieces, clean, and cozy, stocked with almost anything you need, indoor and out. A fully stocked pantry with condiments, sauces and some can and dry goods, even coffee and tea! The refrigerator is also on and ready to use. This place and location is also peaceful and quiet, with a beautiful view. After getting to know a little bit about the area I soon realized
this home is conveniently located near the city, shopping, etc. I certainly would love to stay here again. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the Saint John area.
Thanks Barbara for your review. It feels so good as we try to really make our guests comfortable. Please know you and your family are welcome to stay again. All the best!
Morrisdale is located close to the village of Grand Bay/Westfield. It is a quaint area overlooking the large and beautiful Saint John River. Access to Ocean also very close where you can walk along beaches for hours. Must experience the worlds largest tides and Reversing Rapids. Saint John is a port city and the oldest incorporated city in Canada.
