TapRoot Farms / Swallow's Nest

Swallow's Nest - Farm Stay Guest Cottage

Welcome to a very special place and time...

Welcome to a special place and timeLike a cottage or cabin rental, a farm stay is a wonderful getaway from urban living. Located minutes from Wolfville, Swallow's Nest is in the heart of Nova Scotia's principle farming region - the Annapolis Valley.

During your entire stay at Swallow's Nest you’ll enjoy the nearness of Taproot Farms’ organic orchards, fields, and animals. You can watch the daily routine of a working family farm. But don’t worry, there’ll be no nagging chores--you’ll be on a relaxing vacation!

The ample room at Swallow’s Nest makes it an ideal location to share with friends and family. Located in a private setting at the end of a country lane on TapRoot Farms, it's a 5-minute walk from the main farmhouse.

We welcome friendly, well mannered four-legged members of the family. Choosing Swallow's Nest for your vacation means there's no need for any separation anxiety for you, your kids, or your pet.

Our farmstay is especially suited for families with young children. We have three children of our own who can help your kids make a strong and lasting connection between food, farms, and fun.


If they like, visiting children will be able to collect eggs, visit the pigs or piglets, and take walks through the orchard and trails. We can also arrange a day to harvest corn or another crop, then your family can enjoy this just picked food for lunch or supper. Now, that’s fresh!

There’s nothing like the taste of an egg when you’ve brought it straight from the hen to the pot, or a salad for supper when you’ve chosen your own greens.


  • Easily accommodates 2 sets of adults in private bedrooms (1 king and 1 queen).
  • Children can enjoy sharing a dorm with lots of comfortable beds and their own living-play area on the second floor.
  • Two bathrooms and a large sauna.
  • Wireless Internet.
  • Crib is available.

We are happy to discuss any special needs your family may have.
