Book Today- Escape Tomorrow
Wild Orchid Farm
Your stay here will often start with the rooster announcing the start of the day. Chickens free-range around the barn yard and lawns while cows spend their days in the fields. Alpine Dairy goats will be grazing nearby your AirBnB and later in the summer months hay will be made in the adjacent fields.
A farm stay with one bed one bath.
What I Offer
Welcome to a slower pace of life; one that allows you the opportunity to relax and just simply be. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly, as you take in the sounds of our farm and the view of the adjacent hills.
There is a real sense of community here; one of belonging and where family and friends can work together and help one another out. At our farm you will arrive as a traveller…but in the way of the Maritimes, you often leave as a friend.
Privacy & Freedom
We respect your desire for privacy. The farmhouse loft is set apart from our main home. However, we are more than happy to share our farm with you. Just let us know if you want to visit the goats.
How can I book a stay?

Where are you located?
Located just 4 km from St Francis Xavier University, we are minutes away from Down Town Antigonish and the perfect home base to explore Cape George, The Northumberland Shore, or even day trips to the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Island.
Can I pet the animals?
Yes, absolutely! Just make sure you ask me (Ashley) if you can and I would be delighted to show you the animals. Let us know before hand so we can make arrangements.
What animals do you have?
This is a working farm with cows in the field, chickens free-ranging (the rooster crows early!) , and Alpine dairy goats.
Can I bring my Pets?
No pets, please. We have a very friendly farm dog (Scotia) who guards our fowl and several friendly barn cats.
"This has been a delightful place from which to explore Antigonish and the coast. We’ve experienced Airbnbs in many countries but Wild Orchid Farm has to be the most comfortable and beautifully appointed we’ve stayed in."

"We could not be more pleased with our stay at Wild Orchid Farm! Ashley, your place is absolutely! Your thoughtful touches and incredible hospitality made us feel extremely welcomed. My only wish is that we had another day to enjoy the farm and space! We will hopefully be back in the future! Thanks for everything!"

Life truly is a journey. I have been a lighthouse keeper, a registered nurse for 35 years and now I am an intentional farmer…my passion is all things goats. I am living proof that it is never too late to chase a new dream.
