Guestbook comments from the owner
Your cabin is beautiful and I love the furniture. We found it so nice to come home after a long day of sightseeing and boy did we sightsee!

We saw a male pheasant and we got some nice pictures of a deer and the chipmunk here.

The master bedroom is amazing. One of my dream rooms!

Thank you for the phone calls and Doreen was wonderful. Everyone in Nova Scotia is so friendly no matter where we went it felt like home.

I am a retired French teacher who was born and spent most of my

childhood years in Montreal, Canada except for 5 years in Orange Park,

Florida where my father was a psychologist at the Yerkes chimpanzee

lab and a year on scholarship at a university in Neuchatel,

Switzerland. When I returned to Montreal I met my husband (on a blind

date ) at McGill University where I was an undergrad student and my

husband was a medical student. When we graduated he returned to Penna,

his home state, for his internship. After that his residency training

took us to Texas, Maryland, London, England and Wisconsin. During this

time we had two sons and later adopted a daughter and took in foster

daughters whom we wanted to adopt but the mothers just wanted to hold

on to them loosely. In 1989 my husband’s friend, from undergrad years

at Gettysburg College, purchased Nisbet Plantation on Nevis and we

started buying land next door. We ended up with 4 acres on the ocean

and now that we are retired we live in our own villa for 5 winter

months and rent CORAL REEF VILLA.I have spent every summer of my life

in Nova Scotia and only stay in Penna spring and fall for doctor

appointments, and other essential visits. I am proud to be a

Canadian citizen as well as an American citizen and Nevisian, too.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your wonderful cottage. We live on an Island
in Toronto and the cottage reminded me of home. It was quiet, relaxing and the
scenery was breathtaking. We went for a canoe ride on the lake with our
teenage daughters and saw a bald eagle, a fox and deer. My daughters described the cottage as "awesmazing". The blueberry wine was very enjoyable
that I brought some home. Thank you Jane and Doreen for your hospitality and
directions. I have told everyone about your place.

Hoping to return again.

Sandy Cove Haven

  • 4 of 5
We arrived from Vancouver mid-June to find soft, warm weather and all the delights of early summer waiting for us. We had not expected to find such peace and privacy as the cottage is positioned between waterfront and a large meadow on a small peninsula. We loved the chipmunks and strutting pheasant too. Sandy Cove is a well maintained family cottage which is ideally situated to catch some breezes and sheltered by a few mature maples and oaks if the weather gets hot. We felt right at home and comfortable. Having the point to ourselves and being away from the bustle and noise of main roads was delightful.
It is a treat to wake up to the dappled sunlight and water light dancing in the front master bedroom. We didn't want to leave.
Our hosts made sure we were happy in all things. I almost regret writing this review as it means letting everyone know about our wonderful find.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I spent a (too short) week at this beautiful cottage. It is as described - very clean, well equipped and so peaceful!
Although the weather didn't cooperate, it is located close to so many wonderful towns and attractions that we kept very busy.
Thank you to both Jane and Doreen for the phone calls and visits to make sure we had everything we needed and for the helpful advise.
We are already planning a return visit - hopefully in the very near future!

Great Nova Scotia Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent customer service, clean and well maintained, perfect location for sight-seeing, even more perfect for a quiet and private vacation. The cottage was fully stocked with everything we could need and the personal touches were appreciated. .A true, 'homey' comforting family cottage. Highly recommended. We were looking for a comfortable place to relax, with the convenience of being close enough to some of the most incredible Nova Scotia views - our expectations were completely met.

Fourth Summer at Sandy Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We have made Sandy Cove cottage our vacation base for two week long visits in July for the last four summers. Our sons (9 and 11) love the water and the adventures we have at Sandy Cove. This summer’s specials included seeing two fawns outside the cottage one morning, a woodchuck, pheasants, chipmunks, squirrels, seagulls, and the local ospreys. One of Gabe’s favorite activities is hunting for and catching crabs using a string with different kinds of bait attached. We all enjoy using the various boats and this year did our annual canoe trip to Chester against the wind on the way there with a healthy tailwind for the trip home, and had a sailing adventure in the Raven with Jane and Ron. Day trips included an afternoon and evening at Bayswater Beach, horseback riding at Hatfield Farm, and a zodiac trip down and up the Shubenacadie River during the extreme tide, complete with walking on quicksand, sliding down a slippery mud bank, and riding over the incredible standing waves created by the tide going up the river. We also made an overnight trip to Brier Island (down Digby neck with two very short ferry rides) for whale watching with close up sightings of humpbacks, a Minke whale, and a seal.

We enjoy the solitude of the cozy cottage, all of the amenities including the washer and drier (great for wet towels and bathing suits), swimming and diving off the fixed and floating docks, and the proximity to Chester, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Chester, which is only five minutes away, is really special because of its small size, beautiful homes and cottages, friendly residents, the kids’ two week long sailing program at the Chester Yacht Club, the Kiwi Café, the deck of the Rope Loft, and all the other places to explore in and around town. It also has a hardware store, several grocery stores, and a Tim Hortons so we can get our fill of maple dipped donuts. The cottage is also conveniently located to other sights and places including Peggy’s Cove, Halifax, Annapolis and the Bay of Fundy.

The weather is either sunny with a chance of rain or rainy with a chance of sun. For rainy days and the evenings the cottage has a collection of books, wireless internet and a multitude of television channels to be able to experience programs we don’t see at home.

There are many marvelous places to see around the world but we find ourselves drawn back to Sandy Cove year after year for its perfect combination of solitude and adventure, for kids both young and old.
