About Us

We (John and Alexis) visited Grand Manan a number of years ago intending to stay for a long weekend; it began in the fall of 2004 and has never ended. We live across the road from Sara’s House & Sue’s Cottage. These two adjoining properties are approximately 1/2 mile from the Ferry Terminal and directly across the road from a Kayak Rental/Tour operation Adventure High.

We purchased Sara’s House & Sue’s Cottage so that we could initiate a seasonal rental that would take advantage of the magnificent views of the Harbour. We are involved in restorations on the island including the Swallowtail Lighthouse and Light keeper’s House.

Alexis is a resident artist on Grand Manan and is active on the Grand Manan Art Gallery Board of Directors. She also works with the Junior Art Group on Tuesday evenings and is an active participant in the Thursday afternoon art group (visitors are welcome to attend and participate). John became a Rotarian and is active in the many community sponsored events on the island, especially Rotary Week. John is also a member of the Mananook Lodge and is active in Community lodge functions.
