May 14, 2020

In this time of unprecedented upheaval in the tourism industry we at Tidal Watch Inn are thinking about all the wonderful guests who have visited with us over the years and hoping that you and those that you love are safe and healthy.   We are currently working through the various challenges and restrictions imposed by the pandemic and looking at how we are best able to serve those who wish to visit us during 2020.   We will open, we will survive and thrive through these challenging times.

The Tidal Watch Inn will be opening later than usual this year as we wait for some restrictions to be lifted and look at and prepare best practices for sanitation, and distancing that will keep both our guests and staff safe.  At the moment, our plan is to open in July.  Although our service may have to look a little different, many things will not change.  A warm welcome and well-appointed rooms overlooking the Bay of Fundy will still await you.  As well, the timeless Bay of Fundy tides will still rise and fall on their unique schedule at our doorstep.   Our Village of St. Martins and the fabulous Fundy Trail Parkway will offer the same serene, breathtaking beauty. 

Watch our website and Facebook page for updates on our exact opening date.  Also watch for special prices and packages that we are preparing for our guests for 2020.  We look forward to providing a place of peace, respite, calm and serenity during this season.

Your hosts,

Kathy & Rudy Zinn

Tidal Watch Inn St. Martins

Things to do in St. Martins

The picturesque area of St. Martins, New Brunswick has some of the most stunning sights you’ll ever see. From the Sea Caves to the Fundy Trail Parkway, St. Martins overlooks the bay of Fundy which boasts some of the highest tides in the world.
More than a century ago the prosperous Skillen family built the gracious home that is now the Tidal Watch Inn. Their home became the social center of St. Martins where friends and family gathered. This community of shipbuilders became one of the wealthiest communities in the British Empire during the 1800’s as they built and launched over 500 ships to sail the world.

Today the beaches in front of the Tidal Watch Inn are quiet and serene. While the beaches no longer ring with the labour of building great ships, the hospitality remains unchanged. Tidal Watch Inn continues the great tradition of gracious hospitality welcoming guests from all over the world.
