Bear River is a small village situated at the head of the tidewaters of the Bear River. The river itself is the border between the Annapolis and Digby counties of Nova Scotia and thus, splits the village so that half the village is in one county and the other half in the other. There are two primary bridges which span the Bear River. Local dining options include Changing Tides Diner, Josie Place Eatery, The Hollow Take-out, and Mag Pyes Bakery Shoppe.

Wondering where to stay? Lodging options in the region are mainly limited to Bed and Breakfast type accommodations, though there are a few nearby campgrounds and RV parks. If you are travelling in the area, Bear River is located close to Marshalltown, Croscup Brook, Bear Lake, First Chub Lake and Caribou Lake.

North Hills Museum - 5065 Granville Road

This small wood-framed house overlooking the Annapolis Basin was once the Rumsey farm and then the Amberman house before Robert Patterson, a retired banker, purchased it, named it North Hills, and filled it with his collection of English furniture, ceramics, silver and Georgian glass. When he died in 1974, Patterson bequeathed both the house and its collections to the Province. Visitors will see many fine examples of oak, mahogany and walnut furniture, 18th- and 19th-century English porcelain and 18th-century glass. North Hills is operated by the Annapolis Heritage Society for the Nova Scotia Museum.
