What does Arcadia mean?
"Ancient Greek State - Pastoral Simplicity and Harmony in
Nature" We believe that this accurately describes what you
will find when you stay in one of our homes. It is our
sincerest wish to provide you with peace and harmony as a guest
of Arcadia Vacation Homes.
What are those strange "boxes" by the beach?
of the vacation rental homes offered by the Crooks are located
on the site of an old salmon hatchery. Hatcheries have
been used for decades to improve the survival of young salmon
along the coast - keeping the age old tradition of coastal
fishing alive and well. Hatcheries are facilities where
fish are bred and raised for at least part of their life cycle.
In addition to the foundation of the hatchery, the historical
flumes are still in place ready to carry the salmon back to the
sea. The Crook family has allowed these structures to
remain in place to allow you a sense of the past while enjoying
the incredible private beach setting.
