Overview

Digby House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, two double and one twin, sleeps 6 plus a baby.

Lake Midway is on the scenic drive which leads to Long and Brier Islands in the Bay of Fundy and is 15 minutes from the picturesque fishing port and county town of Digby, Nova Scotia.

The house has high speed internet, satellite TV, VCR, DVD, films, books and games, telephone, well equipped kitchen, washing machine & tumble dryer, hair dryer, bath tub, hot water, central heating, blown air cooling, full bath with shower and half bath downstairs, high chair, telescope and a bike.

It has 3 bedrooms, one with a double and one with a queen sized bed. The children's room sleeps 3 plus a baby (in a crib.)

Its own lake frontage is ideal for swimming or you can fish for trout and bass. The private gardens and open woodland cover 3+ acres .Garden furniture, a bar-b-q, sun beds and bicycle are provided and there are no immediate neighbors.

Sandy Cove is 15 minutes away and the cottage is particularly well positioned for whale watching trips, bird watching, sea fishing, geology, and country walk

Our traditional early 19th century home with modern additions is available for your vacation in Nova Scotia, Canada.

It is less than a mile from the Bay of Fundy's numerous coves and beaches and has stunning views over spring fed Lake Midway. The property adjoins Lake Midway Provincial Park which has was room, picnic and changing facilities all two minutes on foot from the cottage.

We are near to whale watching and pleasure fishing craft as well as lighthouses and seal colonies in the Bay of Fundy.

Getting there: A trip to Nova Scotia by Ferry from Quebec, Ontario or the U.S.A. via New Brunswick brings you straight into Digby, the town nearest to Lake Midway. Flights to Canada from the U.K. and mainland Europe can take less than five hours. Halifax Airport is less than a three hour drive away.

A video of the home is on YouTube 'Innisfree Cottage Lake Midway':

When hiring your car, be sure to get cruise control for the long stretches of well maintained and extremely quiet roads. In the summer you will also appreciate air conditioning in your vehicle, as the temperatures can get well into the 80s.

Wildlife: At Innisfree cottage, you will find nature at its finest and most exciting. Nova Scotia is a wild and friendly place which can be enjoyed from the comfort of our well equipped and cozy country cottage home.

Don't forget to feed the local resident Chipmunks, Blue Jays, Squirrels and Hummingbirds. There is normally some bird food in the cottage and we provide a hummingbird feeder.

You are likely to see rabbits, pheasants, chipmunks and squirrels in the garden. In the woods at the back of the cottage, evidence of white tailed deer can be seen. American finches, robins and blue jays feed from the bird feeders and a brilliant red flash means the cardinal bird is around. Turkey vultures and, if you are lucky, a bald eagle sometimes ride the thermals overhead. In summer, the hummingbirds have a feast on the nectar from the touch-me-not flowers having followed the sun from Mexico arriving in May.

The cottage is used by the owners for their own vacations and is therefore equipped to a very high standard.

About Melvyn F. Oarton

We live in the U.K. and love to come to Canada where the pace of life is so much slower and allows us to enjoy a break close to nature.

Melvyn F. Oarton purchased this house in 2003

Why Melvyn F. Oarton chose Digby

It is in a beautiful setting and is peaceful, quiet and secluded but not remote. We have owned the property for over 10 years and never tire of its charms. The Nova Scotian's we have got to know over the years are friendly and welcoming to visitors. The name Innisfree comes from a poem by the Irish poet William Butler Yates called 'Lake Isle of Innisfree', the words of which remind us of the house.

What makes this house unique

Swimming and playing in the lake in summer is a very special treat. The hummingbirds offer endless entertainment and whale watching is a delight.

Family Fun Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family vacation at Innisfree was a very relaxing, enjoyable vacation. The owners of the property were very helpful providing everything that was needed. From a large property, scenic views, peace and quiet. There were many things for the family to do from going to the picnic park and swimming area across the road and driving to the many wonderful activities that Digby, Nova Scotia has to offer. Sandy Cove Beach was excellent and one day we would hope to return to go on a whale tour.

The property is in an elevated position overlooking Lake Midway, which is a fresh water lake and is itself elevated above the ocean. This is the Google Earth Link http://www.oarton.com/LMW/LakeMidway/Streetview/Innisfree.kmz You will need to choose street view.

Digby Neck is an unusual piece of land, extending as it does and including the islands, almost forty miles into the Atlantic Ocean. The cottage is however in a sheltered and rural position and it is only once you venture a few minutes from the cottage by road, that is is apparent that the cottage is so near the ocean and the Bay of Fundy, being approximately one mile from both the north and south shores of the peninsular.

Further down the peninsular, an inexpensive ferry service operates 365 days a year to and from Brier and Long Islands, where you can pick up a whale watching boat which will take you out onto some of the most ecologically rich parts of the world's oceans.

Other Activities: Whale watching, your own private access to Lake Midway for swimming and fishing, sea fishing, deep sea fishing, walking, beach combing, cycling (we provide a bicycle), bird watching (hummingbirds are especially charming). The house is also packed with lots of fun things to do, such as board games, videos, DVDs, satellite TV, internet access, chidrens' toys and of course it has magnificent views. Innisfree is a nature lover's paradise and the owners particularly enjoy photographing and videoing the many natural visitors to the garden and woods, including the elusive white tailed deer. The fully equipped kitchen means that you can do more than just holiday cooking with equipment which will enable you to do such things as jam and bread making. Please help yourself to the fruit in the garden. Innisfree is not just a holiday home, it is your very own country home from home.
