Recently we had the good fortune to spend a week at Sandy Cove Cottage in Chester, Nova Scotia. It couldn't have been more pleasant!
First of all, the setting is peaceful and idyllic. The cottage sits a few feet from a quiet cove. It is surrounded by pine and oak trees with an open field of tall grasses and wildflowers nearby. Wildlife abounds. During our visit we saw deer, wild turkeys, lots of land and sea birds, rabbits and squirrels. I am told there are often foxes as well. The views of the bay from the dock are spectacular. You can also take in the scenery from the flat roof of the ell of the cottage or maybe just find a lounge chair for an afternoon snooze.
The cottage is well-furnished. There are three comfortable bedrooms, a full bath, a small but well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and two sitting rooms with comfortable chairs.
For entertainment there are books, TV, CD/DVD players and radio. The cottage is heated for the cooler times. It is equipped with both dishwasher and washing machine.
In addition to the many hours we spent enjoying the tranquility of the cottage, we also enjoyed sampling the fare at the several restaurants in the Chester area as well as perusing the art galleries which offer both paintings and ceramics among other creations. The golf course is scenically located and open to the public.
An added plus is the friendly, outgoing nature of the hosts as well as their constant attentiveness to needs or requests for information.
In short, we highly recommend this venue for a wonderful stay in Nova Scotia.
