I had the wonderful opportunity of spending 4 weeks in this lovely home. I was on my own with my 2 serene pets for most of my stay as my husband had to work in Ga. I have never felt safer or thoroughly welcomed. The house was SO clean and well equipped, I didn't have to buy or bring a thing. Plenty of linen, towels galore. The short non trafficked ride into Halifax was a breeze and I strolled through some of the best museums I've ever enjoyed. As a history buff, Nova Scotia is loaded. The rides each day throughout the South Shore were amazingly beautiful, the fish was the freshest, farmers markets divine. Went sea kayaking in Lower Prospect, biked on Rails to trails in Tantallon, and whale viewing, long trip but so worth it, on Briar Island twice! Humpback were close enough to touch, truly awesome, took my breath away. The tourist center right there seemed like they were dedicated to me having the time of my life. They were amazing and the trip would have been 1/2 again without them. I was able to immerse myself in the life there because the people are so amazingly kind. I never felt the tourists that were yards away at the lighthouse, I barely knew anyone else was near me. Go and enjoy, it's an incredible experience.
