Luxury Vacation Home - Private 4.5 Acre, 750 ft Beachfront Estate
About Valerie Mawhinney
Greetings from Valerie & Matthew Mawhinney! As former innkeepers, we have an innkeeper's attention to comfort and hospitality. We have endeavored to appoint Shipyard cottage with all of the amenities you expect in a luxury cottage.
Valerie Mawhinney purchased this House in 2001
Why Valerie Mawhinney chose West Quaco
We built the cottage in 2001 as a second home and convenient base for Matthew's spring lobster fishing season in St. Martins. We recently added lovely new furniture including the dining set, leather sofa and chairs and new bunk beds with premium mattresses.
What makes this House unique
The cupboards are stocked with beautiful handmade pottery by local artisans at Happy Fish Pottery. The beds are appointed with Valerie's handmade quilts.

Beautiful home, nice area
A little far from the larger centers, but St. Martins was a lovely village and we loved the proximity
to the Fundy Trail
The most amazing property and such welcoming homeowners.
The most amazing property and such welcoming homeowners, who provided freshly made cookies upon our arrival! Every part of the house has a spectacular view and all the amenities you could want and need. Kayaks, outdoor grill and ocean view deck, TV and DVDs, gorgeous handmade quilts in every bedroom and beautiful local kitchenware pottery. Very much enjoyed the private setting on several acres, so you truly have your own beach and sunsets. The beach is unique in that the tide goes so far out that there are many inlets and areas to discover with low tide. A most relaxing get away from it all, yet close to local well known and must discover sites such as the St Martins Sea Caves and Bay of Fundy Trail. Shipyard Cottage is a spectacular spot and so glad we were able to experience it!
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our property. We are very pleased that you enjoyed you stay at Shipyard Cottage and the lovely village of St. Martins.
Lovely house, well stocked & perfect for our needs.
Absolutely Perfect !👍👍
This cottage is worth the drive to NB. Very very clean cottage with quality towels, comfortable beds and pillows, nice choice of board games and it comes with a super view. We strongly recommend this cottage. Perfect yard for the kids to play and fly a kite.
Isabelle, thank you for your kind words. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Shipyard Cottage!
Amazing home on the Bay of Funday
This was a highlight of our 5 week Eastern Canada tour! The house was lovely, well appointed and spotless! Fresh cut flowers and homemade cookies were there on our arrival!
We were met by our host on our arrival and given a great intro to the house and the near by communities!
We had access to kayaks which we used on the channels of the tidal bore which was right outside our door!
I would highly recommend this location and home! We would really love too return!
Thank you so much Valerie and Matthew! Appreciated your home crafted quilts and art! You are very talented! As is your artist son!
