"Your cozy fisherman's home had the relaxing atmosphere we were looking for - and you made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in the door."

 The Paddlers Retreat Bed & Breakfast overlooks the islands of Shoal Bay in the the tiny village of Tangier, along Nova Scotia’s rugged Eastern Shore. This rustic fishermans home is the oldest in the community and was built in 1860, just prior to the gold rush that made Tangier the “Klondike” of Nova Scotia for over a decade. It has been tastefully renovated and maintains the character of those earlier times. Most of our guests are paddlers, either our own clients or others exploring our region on their own.
Located on the shores of one of the premier sea kayaking destination in the country, you will enjoy the welcoming, friendly atmosphere of our Paddlers Retreat. All our guests have access to the Coastal Adventures paddling centre including our outdoor hot tub.
