PIPER'S PATH OCEANFRONT BEACH HOUSE

Antigonish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our special piece of Nova Scotia paradise! This post and beam home is located on a 2.3 acre oceanfront lot overlooking the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait. The community is called Dr's Brook and is a 15 minute drive from the town of Antigonish. The house has an unparalleled view of the ocean, P.E.I. across the straight, and gorgeous sunsets off the west deck.

The beach is only 100 feet away from the house where you can swim, snorkel, walk, look for fossils, collect snail shells or just relax and soak up the sun. From the deck you can watch eagles, hawks, blue herons, hummingbirds and loons fly by when you aren't busy laughing at the seals and whales as they frolic in the ocean on their way to their fishing grounds.

The beach is very quiet, as there are only 3 other cottages nearby. The house is ideal for families or couples looking for privacy and relaxation near the ocean.

Family retreat

We came for the Thanksgiving weekend to visit my son who attends St. FX and all 8 of us stayed at this beautiful cottage. To be there and experience the scenery and landscape was truly a retreat experience for all of us. The cottage was sparkling clean and had everything even a family as large as ours required. It was a pleasure to live for a few days in an environment that was obviously truly cared for. Everything from the comfortable furniture, antique pieces, artwork, bedding, gorgeous deck and large basement space was very much appreciated. Every one of us had a bed to sleep in and, quite frankly, the pictures you see of the cottage don't even do it justice. We'll be back for sure. Staying at Piper's Path Oceanfront Beach House was definitely the best part of our visit to Nova Scotia.

Owner's Response: Mary, we are so glad that your entire family enjoyed their stay at the cottage and that having a place to relax made your trip to Nova Scotia even more enjoyable. Hopefully when you return you will be able to stay a bit longer and enjoy all that the area has to offer!

Great cottage near Antigonish

My family of 5 stayed here because my oldest daughter wanted to visit St. Francis Xavier University so we decided to make a vacation out of the visit. This cottage is exactly as it's advertised on this site. We had a great time. The only thing is this year the beach was not sandy it was rocky but the kids loved exploring the rocks and there is a sandy public beach nearby plus other beaches in the area ( try Pomquet beach). The water at the cottage was the warmest out of the beaches we visited. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and everything is well organized. Very private and quiet. Only 1 cottage nearby and it was empty while we were there. The owner answered all my questions that I asked promptly. I would definately stay here again. All you really need to bring is your clothes and food.

We stayed at this cottage the week before our son's wedding in Antigonish. It was approx. 20 minutes from the town. Upon arrival, everything was exactly as shown in the pictures and as the description.provided . The place was spotless, the kitchen was fully equipped with every item needed, garage had every toy for a holiday. The beach, though rocky, was wonderful. We walked the beach many times.It was private and very quiet. Sunsets were fabulous. The lobster from Arisaig pier was superb and fun to go and get them fresh from the fishery.. The owners were very helpful in suggesting activities and so easy to offer help in getting the cottage prepared for us.
I would love to return to Pipers Path. We had some stressful days, preparing for the upcoming wedding, not being in my own home and all, however, the cottage offered me a time of peaceful relaxation when I could grab a moment.
Coffee on the deck in the mornings, watching the lobster boats, or wine in the evenings on the deck watching the sunset were my AHHHH moments.!!!
We were able to have some of our friends stay with us, during the week, as there was plenty of room in the cottage bedrooms and bathrooms
The only improvement would have been the weather - we had lots of rain, but we take what mother nature gives us.
Thank You Debbie for sharing your special place with my family. We loved it and give you a big thumbs up .

So relaxing

Lovely location, great views and the condition of the cottage was very clean, cosy and inviting. All the amenities and more provided.
I would definetly recommend others to stay here, especially if you're looking for a relaxing getaway in the peace and quiet.
The only slight downside is that the beach is more rocky than sandy but there is more than enough land surrounding the cottage to be able to sunbathe, play volleyball etc
Highly recommended

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Piper's Path Rebecca. Our beach changes over time depending on what Mother Nature decides to do! Some years it is sandy and other years it it more pebbly. For those that like a very sandy beach, the Arisaig public beach is only 5 minutes away and it is always sandy. During low tide it has an enormous sand bar that stretches from one wharf to the other.

Hello!

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage! Loved having a drink on the deck, taking in the spectacular sunsets each night. We went exploring along the beach, had a bonfire at night and spent time at the Arisaig beach which is close by. My son got a skim board and had fun trying to master it. My daughter was busy collecting shells and even found a starfish. The house was very clean and looked exactly like the photos on the website. We are planning to return for another visit!
