Welcome to summer 2014!

…and congratulations. You have chosen the perfect vacation destination.

Whether you are ‘coming home’ or coming for the first time you will find a welcome here at the Bayview and in the Village of Alma.

Village life revolves around lobster fishing and nearby Fundy National Park so be prepared to listen to the rhythm of the tides and enjoy an authentic down east fishing village.  Take advantage of the great nature trails in Fundy National Park, swim in the salt water pool or participate in one of the interpretive activities.  Take in a kitchen party at the Molly Kool Centre and learn about our colorful history or walk out on the dock and watch the lobster boats returning with their catch.  Whatever your pleasure,  make time to just sit on the beach and experience the awesome reach of sea and sky.

As owners of the Bayview Motel and  Chalets  we are always pleased to give you tips and directions to local attractions:  Hopewell Rocks,  Cape Enrage,  Kayaking,  Golfing, and local beaches.   In the evening,  come back to a comfortable  two bedroom cottage or a quiet motel suite to enjoy a campfire and the  incredible beauty of the night sky.

We look forward to being your hosts,

Jim and Linda Lindsay, 
Bayview Motel, Chalets and RV Park


 Fleet Launch  -  Oct 2013

The final lobster season for 2013  opened on Oct 13 and the ships sailed early in the morning on the high tide.  Pipers and local musicians were on hand  and local residents and visitors alike came out to celebrate the event.  The fleet,  each boat laden with colorful bouys and traps made its way out of the harbor as early morning darkness gave way to a beautiful sunrise on the bay.   Good fishing,  all!

A story of east coast hospitality….

We had guests arrive to Hilltop Chalet very late last night. They had driven down route 114 where they had not found any open restaurants or even convenience stores. Upon arrival, at midnight, they ventured into the village of Alma. Nothing open, of course, but they did see the lights on in the new Alma Boat House restaurant. The cook was finishing up her evening. When Vijay & his son knocked gently on the door, they report that Josie opened up, brought them in, and cooked a magnificent dinner for them! This family from Cochrane, Ontario were deeply impressed by the East Coast style of hospitality. Way to go, Alma Boathouse!
