Ellen & Vaughn – Beaumont, AB

by Erin May

We had been searching for a vacation home to purchase for a couple of years. Both of us were born and lived in Nova Scotia for 45+ years so we knew the spot would have to be in a rural area with limited tourism, friendly people and affordable. We have found this and more at Viewpoint. We spent a week in early December on a “stay and play”. During this week my husband went fishing with a local fisherman, we did a snorkeling tour at a beautiful cove, while on route we followed a mother whale and her calf, watched a couple of dolphins play and saw local birds and took a short 10 minute drive to a local beach and played in some of the best waves ever. One evening at dinner, the restaurant where we were eating hosted a traveling circus act with four talented artists. Most afternoons you would find us at the local beach, sipping beer and eating guacamole. We snorkeled the local cove and reef and took pictures of local sea life. After returning to View Point and enjoying the spectacular sunset we would walk back into the village for a crepe at “Chely’s”. The local people were friendly and made every attempt to help us in any way possible. At no time did we not feel safe. We purchased our condo before leaving and will take possession the end of January 2013. Lastly, we would like to thank Brent and Erin for being fantastic hosts and to the rest of the owners for welcoming us and inviting us into their homes as friends. We look forward to spending time getting to know each of you. – Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple
