Alongside scenic landscapes, this special experience provides big splashes from the waterslide and an upper deck hot tub that is perfect for stargazing. The largest house boat sleeps up to 14 guests.
If you prefer to stay on land, spend a few nights in
Ôasis (right), a tear drop-shaped canopy, located in the must-hike Fundy National Park. This compact accommodation immersed in nature offers gorgeous views and includes an outdoor fire pit and deck chairs for fireside lounging.
For The Wellness Seeker
Take a break from touring and rejuvenate in one of the many wellness retreats in New Brunswick. Enjoy Nordic-inspired lounge facilities and wellness treatments at

For The Lovebirds
Plan a romantic glamping getaway at
Ridgeback Lodge (left). Five private “dream domes” overlook a gorgeous forest and offer luxurious amenities such as a Japanese-inspired Ofuro wood-fired hot tub and a specialty romance package.
Another option is the comfortable four-season accommodations at

For The Whole Family
New Brunswick is filled with charming spots that the whole family will enjoy. A few nights at a
treehouse (left) tucked in nature, just 15 minutes outside the city of Miramichi, delivers a fun-filled experience for kids of all ages. There are endless activities, whether you’re gathering around the firepit for s’mores, visiting the Pirate Ship playground on site, or taking a dip in the outdoor pool.
For a more luxurious experience, visit the iconic
Algonquin Resort (right), located in the picturesque town of St. Andrews by-the-Sea. This year-round resort offers spacious rooms, great restaurants, and amenities for every family member, including an indoor heated pool with a three-story waterslide and an award-winning golf course!
For The History Buff
Spend a night stargazing with a Tipi Retreat in
Metepenagiag Heritage Park (left) located on a branch of the famous Miramichi River. Explore national historic sites while hearing Mi’kmaq stories that have been passed down through generations, or enjoy sampling seasonal fish or game with wild rice with the Taste of Metepenagiag “Ookdotaan” experience. You’ll experience the rich ancient Mi’kmaq culture and help preserve its 3,000-year-old history.
If you’ve ever wanted to be transported back in time, a stay at the historic
Hôtel Château Albert (right), located in the Village Historique Acadien near Caraquet, should be on your must-visit list. Rebuilt respectfully and with historical accuracy, this replica of Acadian architect Nazaire Dugas’ 1907 Château Albert Hotel, which tragically burnt down in 1955, is designed as an ode to old-fashioned charm. From the claw-foot bathtubs to 20 th-century antiques and traditional wainscotting, a warm ambience is created in every room.
