Salty Towers (and its predecessor The Seaside Inn) has been welcoming guests for close to 100 years. There are a number of rooms available, each unique. As are our guests. Don't be surprised to see musicians strumming on the porch, artists lounging in the living room and others of uncertain provenance swapping stories around the stove in the kitchen. Admittedly its a little different and not for everyone, but those who like it, like it a lot!
Salty Towers is also our home and we are present when folks are staying here. St. Andrews is our neighbourhood. We are 4 blocks from the centre of town, the wharf, shops and restaurants. We see the harbour from the front porch and the comings and goings of a myriad of locals and visitors. The town itself is 13 blocks long by 6 blocks wide, more or less. Walking and bicycle are preferred means of getting around.
The community is a remarkable place with scores of things to see and do without having to get into a car. Everything from live music (sometimes at Salty Towers), kayaking, art shows, galleries, cool architecture and great food, opera and theatre (both seasonal), to viewing sea life, hiking, sailing and chatting with interesting locals at the pub or on a front street bench, it's all within a few blocks of the front door. However, if you must, the incredible scenery and experience of Deer and Campobello Islands and Grand Manan are only shorts drives and a ferry trip away and the neighbouring communities of St George and St Stephen both have great things to see and do. Closer to town a number of hiking trails offer great views in exchange for little bit of exertion.
Here at the house guests have access to a number of common areas, two kitchens, great porches (both open and enclosed) and yard. WiFi is available throughout. We have parking on site. There are private family quarters on the premises.
Unfortunately there is no longer public transit into town. There are a couple of local companies that will pick folks up from the airport or bus station in Saint John, Fredericton or Bangor, Maine, but its not cheap.
There are often others staying in the house as well as our own family. Guests should acknowledge this and act appropriately. The house is non smoking. We have allowed pets in the past but please check first.
