For your protection we adhere by strict COVID cleaning regulations, however please note that with rental of just 1 of the suites, use of hot tub, sauna, and common areas may be restricted, or partially restricted, as long as Provincial COVID regulations apply. To ensure unrestricted use of all the amenities, as well as the kitchen, I highly recommend booking the entire house, listed under "Relaxing Spa Retreat at the Water".

Other things to note
Please note that this Auberge has 2 guests suites, and occupancy is limited to 2 guests per suite (no exceptions). Most guests come to this spa retreat to reboot and unwind, therefore Infants and young children can only be accommodated if guests rent the entire house ("Relaxing Spa Retreat at the Water" – both Suites). We regrettably are not able to accommodate infants or young children with rental of only 1 of the Suites.
Due to health and safety concerns, infants and young children are not permitted to use hot tub, or sauna.

Location

Wedgeport, Nova Scotia, Canada

Auberge Thon Jaune overlooks Chebeck tidal bay, which ties into the Tusket River Estuary, in SW Nova Scotia, with some of the highest tides in the world. The constant ebb and flow attracts many seabirds, fish, and wildlife, and is extremely relaxing to experience. Unlike most night skies elsewhere, you can enjoy a vista of clouds moving, moon and starlight, and on very clear nights, with a brilliant Milky Way. Wedgeport is located on a peninsula, surrounded by the ocean, Tusket river estuary, and 365 Tusket islands – in a quaint, peaceful, bilingual, and historic Acadian fishing village, with an extremely joyous and tolerant culture. Although fully connected, you can easily tap into an unencumbered world of the past, connect to nature, and above all, unplug. There are several hiking trails along the ocean, places where private boats can be launched conveniently, many islands to explore, and the night sky (whether filled with moving clouds, or brilliant stars) is amazing. We have a bistro (with fair trade speciality coffee and espresso drinks, breakfast, lunch, dinner), a restaurant at the Tuna Museum, and a convenience store with all the necessities, including liquor store and mini gas station, and major shopping is only 15 minutes away in Yarmouth. Wedgeport is Internationally known as the Tuna Fishing Capital of the World, and home of the Sharp Cup. It is ideally located located for visitors to the Deep Sky Eye Observatory in Quinan (an unforgettable experience that should not be missed) & for those researching Acadian roots. Tusket, the seat of this municipality, is close by, and home of Tusket Falls Microbrewery, a cozy place to enjoy a craft beer or a coffee, and to take in a local concert. The Hatfield House restaurant in Tusket is located in a beautifully restored historic building, and the ideal place for romantic gourmet dinners. Family researchers will enjoy the archives in Tusket, and especially the Musée in Pubnico, with meticulous records dating back to the earliest Acadian settlers in this area. A visit at Le Village in Pubnico should also not be missed, to experience how first settlers lived in the past. To complement the Spa experience at Auberge Thon Jaune, with its hot tub overlooking the bay, and the outdoor barrel sauna, the sister property Auberge Nathalie Ora also offers therapeutic Hydromassages.
