St. Andrew’s by the Sea, New Brunswick
October 23-28, 2017
Our retreat in St. Andrew’s by the Sea proved to be a wonderful fall getaway with emerging and established writers.
Participants spent five nights at the Rossmount Inn, a 3-storey manor house on an 87 acre estate set between the forest and the sea. It includes Chamcook Mountain, the highest point in the Passamaquoddy Bay area, and has breathtaking vistas over the Bay, Chamcook Lake, St. Croix River and the coast of Maine.
The Rossmount Inn has been featured in “Where to Eat in Canada” for the past five years, and Chef Chris Aerni, who received his traditional chef’s training in Switzerland, is renowned for his gourmet meals created with local, seasonal, organic and wild foods. There are beautiful nature trails directly behind the Inn, and it is only a few minutes from St. Andrews By-the-Sea, recently named USA Today’s Top Canadian Destination.
This event showed New Brunswick at its best: an unmatched autumn display.
