Walkerville House Rental Photos and Description

www.capebretoncottages.info

The house offers excellent living conditions for every season. In winter, it is especially cozy to sit by the fireplace, enjoying the warmth, and gazing out across the water.

We're often asked about mosquitoes. The seaside breeze drives the pesky beasts away. It is also to be noted that all houses have the luxury of window screens and sliding screen doors that can be closed. In the summer, the temperatures vary between 20-28 degrees Celsius in the day, and 12-14 degrees during the night. Near the coast, the wind can get a little brisk, so it is recommended to take a sweater along. In spring and fall the temperatures are a comfortable 15-18 degrees. With an average snowfall of 200cm, the island and the northern part of Nova Scotia offer good conditions for winter sports.

Winter dream: Cape Breton, because of the Highlands, has a real winter, especially in comparison to the southwest of Nova Scotia Island.

The appeal of this season is juxtaposition of ocean and snow.

Ski-lift Cape Smokey is about 1.5 hours away.

Drifting ice covers the turquoise blue of the sea and the landscape is bathed in strangely melancholic light.

You don't need to drive anywhere to partake in the winter sports, though. Cross-country skiing, hiking, and even driving Skidoos - a popular Canadian pastime - can all be done along the beach and through the woods right by the house. Sometimes, when it's really cold, you can walk on the ice over to the islands, but please check with the authorities to see if it's safe before trying this.

Climate: Winters in the Atlantic Provinces are, thanks to their proximity to the ocean, relatively mild. In Halifax, the average temperature is between 0C and -1C, and the maritime influence often leaves them without snow for the winter.

In East Cape Breton, winter is a couple degrees colder than in Halifax. With an average snowfall of 200cm, the island and the northern part of Nova Scotia offer good conditions for winter sports like downhill and cross-country skiing.

Before that, the so-called 'Indian Summer' transforms the countryside into an astonishing explosion of color. The exact timing is dependent on the specific weather conditions, and can easily vary from year to year, but this beloved season usually begins in the second or third week of September and lasts until the end of October.

History: There's a reason why you feel good on Cape Breton. The pioneers who set out from Europe a long time ago to make their fortunes here, not only built the Bluenose ship (after which the house is named), but also formed their very own city, today called Lunenburg. The French also had their influence on the region; having lent it it's special charm.

Nova Scotia has experienced history in the superlative. The Titanic sank on its journey to Newfoundland, Peggy's Cove, the most photographed fishing town in North America, bouquets serve as a constant reminder of the tragedy. There are thousands of shipwrecks before the cliffs. Only after the island's numerous lighthouses were built did the accidents subside.

The famous action thriller 'The Perfect Storm' took place off the coast of Nova Scotia and impressively gives a glimpse into the difficult life of the modern fisherman and his destiny.

About Robert

We are in Nova Scotia since 2000, sailed 8,000 miles started in the Mediterranean Sea, crossed the

Atlantic and reached safely our Canadian home after passing through the Caribbean islands and

Bermudas. Our sailing boat is equipped to afford a long cruise, having a water maker, solar panels

and all the most important navigation and security devices. If the vacation homes are occupied, we might have vacancy on board. Read more at www.sailing.capebretoncottages.info

Robert purchased this house in 2000

Why Robert chose Walkerville

As Nova Scotia offers a lot of things to do, not only on land, we suggest you to combine your stay in the beautiful house right at the private shore with a

sailing adventure on board of our 12 meter catamaran. Why don’t you stay with us and visit the stunning area around us with a sail boat? Summer in Nova Scotia is usually warm with pleasant winds and temperatures between 25°C and 30°C.

What makes this house unique

Nova Scotia belongs to the East-Canadian Maritimes. What you can read on the driving plates

describes exactly what you can find in this part of Canada: „Canada’s Ocean Playground“! !

In fact, along the stunning costal area you can easily admire seals, pilot wales, dolphins, eagles,

hummingbirds, loons and puffins. !

People in Nova Scotia have a very strong relationship to the sea as their main income comes from

fishing lobsters. Life on land is very quiet and slow. People here have time, are open and

extremely friendly to sailors, as they rarely see some.!

Light in Nova Scotia is much stronger than elsewhere, colors are more brilliant and the fog is

sometimes the thickest we have ever seen. Lay back and let Nova Scotia enchant you. The

coastline is deeply indented by fiords and numerous bays. Cape Breton Island in the north east

has a huge lake (Bras d’Or Lake) with crystal clear water and terrific fishing possibilities. People

here are still very tight to their traditions: there is always an occasion to play Scottish bagpipes and

Irish fiddle music and when you are here you can choose among different Scottish events and step

classes. In the French Acadian, their inhabitants, although english speaking, enjoy being greeted

with a „bon jour“.

Nova Scotia is different, peculiar, very lovable and lovely at the same time. Many people find that

the landscape here is very similar to Scandinavia: narrow mountains, huge green areas, lakes and

large forests with moose, bears and lynxes. But, thanks to Nova Scotia’s latitude (45th latitude -

the same as in France) summer is mostly warm.!

Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen für Naturliebhaber

  • 5 of 5
Nun schon zum 3. Mal haben wir dieses wunderschöne Fleckchen Erde direkt am Meer besucht. Hier findet man Ruhe, Entspannung und eine beeindruckende Naturvielfalt; also der richtige Ort zum Entschleunigen. Dazu ein perfekt ausgestattetes, helles und gepflegtes Haus zum Wohlfühlen. Die sehr informative Webseite (kanada-ferienhausvermietung.de/ferienhaus/) sowie die sehr gute Betreung durch Robert im Vorhinein halfen sehr bei der Reisevorbereitung und erhöhten die Vorfreude auf den Urlaub. Direkt am Haus und in der näheren und weiteren Umgebung gibt es eine Vielzahl von Freizeitmöglichkeiten. Diese reichen von der entspannenden Naturbeobachtung von der Riesenterrasse bis zu Ausflügen in die Umgebung (Cape Breton NP, Kejimkujik-NP, Lunenburg, Bay of Fundy...)
Wir freuen uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen mit Robert und Monika im nächsten Jahr!

Schönes Holzhaus mit super Aussicht direkt am Meer

  • 4 of 5
Unsere Erwartungen, die wir von den Bildern im Internet hatten, wurden voll erfüllt. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und es auch bei schlechterem Wetter im Haus gut ausgehalten. Von Vorteil wäre noch eine Spülmaschine - einmal für die Gäste: spart Zeit und einmal für den Vermieter: spart Wasser. Highlight war die Galerie im Obergeschoss, von der aus man ungehindert aufs Wasser schauen konnte - genauso wie vom oben gelegenen kleinen WC :-) mit Bullauge.
Direkt am Haus haben wir verschiedene Wasservögel, eine Robbe und Adler beobachten können. Noch besser ließen sich die Tíere allerdings direkt vom Wasser aus entdecken, Einmalig war die Tour mit dem Segel-Trimaran zusammen mit Robert dem Vermieter. Danke noch mal für das tolle Erlebnis!

Owner's Response: Mir hat es auch viel Freude gemacht, einen absoluten Beginner nach kurzer Zeit allein auf dem Segelschiff sicher agieren zu sehen. Die Faszination des Meeres zu erwecken bedeutet, 70% der Erde mit anderen Augen zu sehen, denn so viel Anteil an der Erdoberfläche hat das Wasser.
Zur Spülmaschine mache ich mir Gedanken. Es ist ja eine vorhanden, die jedoch nicht wirklich gut reinigt. Der Wasserspar-Effekt ist wegen eigenem Brunnenwasser dabei nicht so bedeutend wie der Komfort.

The beach is less than twenty meters from the house, down a 10 m path and wooden stairs. Breathtaking panoramic view from 130 sqm patio to the islands in River Inhabitants Basin. Protected private sandy beaches and anchorage.

Other Activities: snow shoe walking, cross country skiing, ice fishing

Golf: Golfing in 15 min. distance of the vacation house:

The Dundee Resort has developed an excellent reputation as an ideal destination to spend an extended holiday or a golfing week-end. The main reason for the success has been the quality of service and the variety of activities available for adults and children alike. These include indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, walking trails, lakefront rec centre, tennis courts, marina, dining room, lounge, conference facilities, children's playgrounds and programs, volleyball courts and a picturesque and very challenging golf course.

Wild... exhilirating... an adventure... these are just a few of the adjectives used to describe this unique course. Dundee, with a SLOPE rating of 132 from the white tees, is second only upo the Highlands Links in difficulty.

Architect Robert Moote was presented with an awesome task and responded by carving a splendid Par 4 course from mountainous terrain. Every hole has its own character and requires accurate shots to narrow landing areas

Notes:
The 'Bluenose' house was constructed from wood in the year 2000, and furnished in European style. You will find everything that you may need. A high quality kitchen, cupboards and floors fashioned out of wood -leaves capture every wish. The house is spacious and well lit. Large triangular windows facing the ocean and a living room with a cathedral ceiling let plenty of sunshine in. From the upstairs bedroom, which also has a small bath, you can see the ocean through the glass doors. The back section of the ground floor is a separate suite, complete with bath and shower, for your friends or children. In the bedroom on the left, there are bunk beds and a view over the estuary. The foyer on the right is separate, so that jackets, shoes and so forth can be stored. The kitchen is completely furnished with a large, American refrigerator, an oven, coffee machine and a bread baking machine. In the front of the house is a very attractive fireplace between the two large patio doors.
