The first thing we noticed, when we approached what was to become our new home, was a painting of a fox gracing the front door. The artist, Bea, who lived with her fox terrier Murphy, not only loved her home, but also the natural beauty of the landscape. Bea cherished the wildlife that shared her refuge on the edge of the tidal bay.
Aside from the saltwater birds, bald eagles and loons, Bea loved the twilight visits of the white-tailed deer, and occasionally she would spy a rusty red fox at the edge of the woods bordering her land. The fox’s handsome good looks, and her refuge hollowed out from the cliff were the inspiration for Bea’s painting, and the name lovingly bestowed on her home. After rebuilding the house from the ground up, “Fox Hollow” is reborn and available for guests in 2007.
To honour Bea’s legacy, the painting of the fox is right where it should be, at the front door, ready to welcome you when you come to share our home and fall in love with the spectacular natural beauty of Fox Hollow at Oak Bay, New Brunswick.
