A long drive for our family of 4 from Mississauga, Ontario, but well worth the effort to get there. Our collective jaw's dropped when we arrived at the property. This ocean front cottage is spectacular in every sense. The cottage itself is open, airy, spacious, modern and very well appointed. The pictures posted by the ower accurately depict the experience. All the comforts of home, but with stunning, open views of grassy dunes and the ocean. With the windows open, the hynotic surf rolling into shore provides peaceful and relaxing soundscape.
The beach, a few short, private boardwalk steps from the cottage, is as nice as you can find in Nova Scotia. The sand is fine, soft and white and there is lots of it as there is span of approx 50 metres from the dunes to the water. The beach gently slopes into the ocean for quite a distance so you can wade out 50 metres or more and still stand with your head well above water. The ocean was reasonably warm during our stay so we swam and played in the surf every day. We went for long walks (a couple of KMs) on the beach and because the area is relatively secluded we rarely ran into anyone else. The folks we did meet, including the owner's neighbors, were all very welcoming.
Located only a short drive (20 mins) from the quaint town of Antigonish, means easy access to a couple of major grocery stores, a liquor store, banks and restaurants etc.
The property owner was honest and helpful in every sense of the word, making the rental process easy.
We wish we had more time to spend and we wish we could keep this place a secret because it really is a hidden gem! We look forward to returning again!!
