THE VERY BEST OCEAN VIEW VACATION HOME IN THE MARITIMES--BREATHTAKING

Antigonish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Majestic' is the word most often heard from newcomers to Kelly's Retreat at Livingstone Cove. This beach cottage was completed in 2007 and sits on a rugged hillside facing west, ready and waiting for you to enjoy tonight's enchanting sunset over Northumberland Strait.

This home is of post and beam construction, using 100% native Nova Scotia timbers. Plentiful and large windows allow for multiple and majestic views from virtually every room. Enjoy the sight of Prince Edward Island and Pictou Island from the 500 sq ft glass railed deck. See the local lobstermen from nearby Livingstone Cove set their traps and haul their delicious treasure during the season, then, most summers, the whales start to play just offshore while cruise ships, fishing boats and yachts of all sizes pass quietly in the distance.

The entire second floor is the Master Suite featuring a large bedroom with a queen size bed, a huge bath with a whirlpool tub and a beautiful loft looking down on the living area and the ocean. The main floor features your family room with leather furniture, a soap stone wood stove and a flat screen HD TV, dining room, two bedrooms and a bath all surrounding the modern and fully equipped oak kitchen. The second bedroom features a queen size Select Comfort bed, you pick your sleep number, and a perfect view of the fishing fleet at Livingstone Cove. The third bedroom, tucked in the southeast corner of the house, has two twin beds arranged in trundle fashion.

Bald eagles, hawks and deer are seen on the property most days. If you are a lover of hummingbirds, our feeder is busy from sun up to sun down.

From this home you can hike the extensive Cape George Trail System, ride bikes, kayak, canoe OR sit and read, sleep, beach walk, stay in bed all day just watching mother nature's daily theater played out over the ocean.

Come and enjoy this unique home. You will leave with a renewed sense of calm and integration into this beautiful natural world all around us.

Why Joe Kelly chose Antigonish

This property takes my breath away every time I go there. You will see exactly what I mean as soon as you arrive.

What makes this house unique

Peace, quite, wildlife, beauty and all the comforts of home. Anything else you might need is just down the road in Antigonish.

Family Get-a-Way to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5
Our 4 night stay at your rental house exceeded our expectations. My family has rented many houses over the years. Typically, there are at least a few small things (broken cabinet doors, lack of dishes or kitchen equipment, quality of bedding, etc.) that we have learned to accept. Not this time! No complaints about the house at all. The setting and the sunsets take your breath away. Our dog loved the freedom and open space to run and play. She even managed to chase a deer and two rabbits which helped to wear her out for long, sound, sleeps at night. We knew going in that the house was far from town (or civilization for that matter) and that's exactly what we wanted. Owner was wonderful to deal with and answered all our questions ahead of time.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything that was advertised. It is very well equiped, very clean and comfortable.
The spectacular photos on the website were very accurate. The views are amazing.

We drove into Antigonish which did not seem very far.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Home away from home in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time and your house was the perfect home away from home for a full week. Archie had a blast running in the fields, and cuddled up next to the fire place! You had everything we could have needed and the house was in a perfect spot to just take in all the beauty of Canada. This really opened our eyes to how beautiful Antigonish is! Wow!! And not to mention the Giant Blue Fin Tuna that are right in the backyard!! Impressive! We are already excited about another trip next year, same time!
