The hotel’s patio sundeck has a picturesque view of the Annapolis Valley which blends in the agricultural landscape with the Minas Basin and the Cornwallis River. From this viewpoint our guests can see the magnitude of the tides from the Bay of Fundy where the Minas Basin will be completely drained of over a billion gallons of water in 6 hours and then replenished in another 6 hours. One of Nature’s Wonders. The high tides are estimated at 50′ and the Old Orchard Inn is the perfect Bay of Fundy hotel to watch one of the voted new world’s wonders.
The patio sundeck is also attached to the main hotel cocktail lounge so you can easily relax on one of our Adirondacks chairs with a cool beverage. Challenge yourself to a game of Chess or simply enjoy the scenery towards the North Mountain of the Annapolis Valley, Cape Blomidon.
