The immediate neighbourhood is quiet and friendly.The small fishing community of Digby, Nova Scotia is located at the western end of the Annapolis Valley and is blessed with the most temperate climate in the province. It is the ideal place for a family holiday, a romantic vacation or for those interested in motorcycles, it is the home of the Wharf Rat Rally in September. Locally available lobster and world famous scallops can be obtained at the wharf right off the boats and whale watching excursions are available as well.The house and large very private garden have recently been upgraded and are ready to be enjoyed. Two fully modern bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen compliment the rest of the house which is furnished in mostly period décor with a Scottish touch.

“Delightful, roomy, super furnished home--pleasant host”
This bright home is a great place to "come home to" after a day of sightseeing as well as relax during a rainy day. The huge porch, BBQ and dinette area deck and landscaped yard are fun extr… More
Owner's reply: So glad to read your review guys! We love it when others are able to enjoy our Digby home as we do. We also find it is a very special place. Cheers Don
“Beautiful, spacious property. Great location. Tremendous value.”
Stayed at the Fisher House in mid-August while in Digby for a nearby wedding. Had 2 couples share these accommodations. Was everyone's first time in Digby. The house is in a fantastic location, j… More
Owner's reply: Many thanks for the kind words guys, so happy you enjoyed your wedding and that our Digby home worked well as a base for you. We also think it's a pretty special place. We take a lot of pride in both the local area and in our home. Many thanks as well for leaving the house so neat and tidy, much appreciated.
“Wonderful stay in Digby”
Four of us travelled from the UK in June and were lucky enough to chose this charming house as a base for our explorations of western Nova Scotia. Although I am from NS, but now living in the UK, I ha… More
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the kind words guys. We love our Digby home and the area so very much and it's always great to hear when others feel likewise. We return in late August and can't wait to enjoy the songbirds on the sundeck ourselves.
“Fantastic base to stay.”
We stayed at this wonderfull house as 2 families in August during Digby scallop week. There were a total of 8 of us in the house & there was plenty of space for us all. The kitchen has excellent … More
Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words guys, we love our Digby home and love to hear when others enjoy it as well. It's a special place that is sometimes hard to express in words. We have yet to experience Scallop Days but are looking forward to doing so in the near future! It's easy to see why Digby scallops are world famous and getting them fresh from the boats is always incredible.
“Comfort, character, convenience, and all-around loveliness.”
First of all, I felt a special affinity toward this house because it appeared that the original floor plan (some remodeling had been done over the last 90 years or so of its life) seemed to be the exa… More
Owner's reply: Thanks so much guys for your kind words about our Digby home. We love to hear when others find the place as special as we do. The Digby sunrises are acknowledged as some of the best in the province and my wife and I also like those early morning strolls into town. The local scallops are unique, especially when gotten so fresh and the lobsters equally so! We have tried to equip our place with all the necessities and have acquired many items not usually found in a holiday home. Thanks again and enjoy the remainder of your Summer.
“Home away from Home”
This was our first holiday rental in Nova Scotia and was a great choice. The house was large, very clean, and decorated in a way that made us instantly feel that we were in a home that the owners too… More
Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words Diana. Louise and I certainly do love our Digby home and love to hear when others feel the same way about it. Enjoy the rest of your Summer.
“Home from home!”
We have spent several weeks touring Nova Scotia and this has by far been the nicest accommodation. It was very homely and excellently situated for walking into town in the evenings. We also loved sitt… More
Owner's reply: Mark and Sara, so glad you enjoyed your stay in our Digby home. We think it's a very special place also. We keep the bird feeders full when we're there and love watching all the bird life that surrounds the house. Blinds under the bedroom curtains are on our to do list although I love watching the beautiful sunrises myself. Thanks again for the review guys.
“Huge, yet cosy and inviting”
I am really pleased we found the beautiful Fisher House. The house is huge yet still felt cosy and inviting. It is very well equipped and had everything we needed for our three day stay. Margaret (… More
Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review guys. We love our special Digby getaway so very much as well. Glad you enjoyed Magpyes as well, it's a unique eating experience and a terrific addition to the Digby restaurant scene.
“Charming house with room for all”
We stayed here for a few days in the first week of September and loved the house. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The back garden and deck are nice for relaxing and it is minut… More
Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review Pat, so glad you enjoyed your holiday in Digby. Sorry my response has been late but Louise and I have been busy in our Digby house making more improvements.
“Warm, Lovely & Inviting”
We rented this property for a one week period commencing July 26/14. Securing the property, months in advance, turned out to be a very easy and organized process. Our inquiries were quickly answered… More
Owner's reply: Thanks so much Brenda for the fabulous comments. It's great to see that others appreciate our Digby home as much as we do. My wife and I both loved your "walking into a hug" phrase as it's exactly how we feel when we arrive at 37 Carleton St. Thanks again Don Fisher
