Where people and trails meet!
Located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains and spread over both sides of the St. John River, this historic village offers visitors experiences that will excite all five senses. See, hear, smell, taste and touch all the area has to offer.
Take the self-guided Cultural Walkway tour for a glimpse into the area’s Maliseet, English and Scottish heritage, or visit the Southern Victoria Historical Museum, located in an historic Methodist church from 1837, to touch and see the history of the village through artefacts and displays.
Depending on the season, you can explore the area with hiking, biking or cross-country skiing excursions on 3 local trail systems: the International Appalachian Trail, Trans Canada Trail and Sentier NB Trail. The village also sits on the edge of great hunting, fishing and wilderness areas.
Every Saturday in the summer, a local farmers market features the best of the region’s lands, woods and waters. Take the time to dine al fresco on a grassy riverbank, breathing in the fresh, unspoiled air while enjoying the bounty of the land.
Plan to stay at The Castle Inn, a bed & breakfast-style inn featuring spectacular fine dining and luxuriously appointed rooms. Don’t miss our many local events while you’re here, from the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo to the Gathering of the Scots, NB Pro Bass Tournament and Tobique (Negootkook) First Nation Powwow. Check our website for a calendar of local events.
Once you experience the village of Perth-Andover, you will always want to return!
