Getting Here

A car is necessary to get to us as we are a half-hour drive from the Saint John Airport (YSJ) and our community does not offer public transportation. There is a small local taxi service that has recently launched in our community as well.

We have plenty of free parking available and once you’re here and transportation can be provided to various nearby attractions (must be prearranged).
