HISTORICAL HOME OVERLOOKING YARMOUTH HARBOUR

Yarmouth House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

HARBOURVIEW HAVEN

This beautiful Greek Revival historical home is located on the prestigious Yarmouth Harbor within walking distance of downtown Yarmouth and across the street from Yarmouth Golf and Country Club. Just a few minutes from the Main Ferry Terminal, Mega Yacht Dock or the Yarmouth Airport; and 4 hours southwest of Halifax International Airport, our home is located just where you want to be. Only a short drive away are spectacular beaches and historic towns such as Digby, Annapolis Royal, Shelburne, Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg; Kejimikujik Lake and National Park; galleries, museums and craft shops. This area offers white water rafting, fresh water canoeing, superb golfing and excellent cycling and hiking. For bird lovers, the South Shore is on a major migratory route.

Renovated, updated, and decorated with great style & antiques, this 4-bedroom home offers spectacular views of the harbor and spacious rooms throughout. The house has retained much of its original character with just the right mix of modern touches. Refinished maple hardwood floors, tin ceilings and beautifully crafted wood trim & staircases add to the charm of this home. The main level features a comfortable living room, separate dining room that seats 8 comfortably, a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, and a laundry room with a half bath. Sliding patio doors open onto the spacious deck that is equipped with a gas grill & patio furniture for that perfect afternoon barbeque. Spend the afternoon swinging on the large columned veranda which runs along the front and side of the house or out in the vast lawn viewing birds overhead or aquatic life in the harbour. On the second floor are 3 bedrooms and a 2 full baths, which are tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings. On the third floor is the luxurious master suite featuring a large sitting room with breathtaking views of the harbor, 1 spacious bedroom and a full bath.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time in Atlantic Canada and enjoyed our stay at your fine house in Yarmouth.



I do have a couple of friends that will be visiting Nova Scotia next year and would like to refer them to you.

We first visited Nova Scotia in 2001 and fell in love with the area, people and food. The pristine landscapes and panoramic ocean views are magnificent and just the thing we need for a relaxing vacation. Our children have made many friends with the kids their own age and enjoy visiting them every summer. Coming to Yarmouth is one of our most treasured family spots and we hope to continue to do so for many years to come.

David Robinette purchased this house in 2005

One reason we love Yarmouth is because it's like taking a step back in time to the small southern towns we grew up in during the 60's. The townsfolk are so welcoming that you feel right at home while there. The local seafood is to die for...fresh lobster, clams and scallops are just a few of the varieties available. Another reason we love Nova Scotia is the milder summer temperatures to be enjoyed rather than the hot southern heat and high humidity we are used to experiencing.

As we walk into our house, we feel just like 'we are home!' It's home'y' atmosphere welcomes us back year after year. Taking walks along the harbour, riding bikes through the town, walking downtown for breakfast, sitting on the upper floor watching the birds & boats & dolphins, having a lobster cookout on the deck, or just reading or napping on the veranda are some of our most favorite things to do while here. It is definitely a place to come for a time-to-unwind from our busy life in the states.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We had the house for two weeks over the summer, and loved it! It was beautiful, clean, and well kept. The property manager and the owner both were great and easy to get a hold of if needed. The house is huge, we had 7 people staying in the house, and lots of company coming and going and we did not feel over crowded at all. We would definitely stay again, and highly recommend it to others.

Great Home for large group!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this beautiful home met our expectations and beyond. The pictures tell it all but fail to portray the charm that is in this house. Despite a couple of very minor glitches (no plunger, bicycles or pull out couch, no big deal!), we couldn't have asked for a more perfectly located home for our vacation with friends. The property was mostly like described. The beds were so comfortable, linens and towels abundant, beautifully furnished and the deck facing the ocean was well used from afternoon ‘til the wee hours. The house is walking distance to the restaurants and quaint stores. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had and made every effort to make us feel comfortable. She felt very badly about what she couldn't control so she was gracious to refund us for the trouble. This was totally unnecessary as we were already recommending this property to our friends, but her generous and caring gesture showed her commitment to making her guests happy. Thank you for everything Veronica, you have been a great part of the many stories told of our vacation. If ever we return to Yarmouth, we will definitely be booking with you.

Throughly enjoyed our stay at this home. I am so glad we rented a house instead of a hotel room for our family visit. It had the perfect blend of old and new. Great job with the restoration. Loved the tin ceilings. Loved the third floor master suite. The children especially loved the third floor. It was a "secret room". We couldn't get them outside. Deck was nice although we didn't get much use of it due to the rain. Plenty of parking. It was a ten minute walk to the shopping area on Main St. Convenient access to the roads leading out of town. Would recommend eye masks if you wake at the first bit of light. If you are a heavy sleeper don't worry about it. The curtains were light and airy so the sun shone through in the bedrooms as soon as it came up. Would stay here again and would definitely recommend to family or friends. The king size bed was very comfortable for me.

Home Away From Home!

  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 glorious days at this historical home in Yarmouth. There were 8 adults in our group and the home had more that enough space for us. The 3 full baths plus 1/2 bath made mornings a breeze - no waiting in line for showers. Washer and dryer on premise was an added bonus. Beds were comfy and home was clean and well-maintained. Wish we would have had more time to just sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings from the large patio or the 3rd floor seating room - What an awesome view of the harbour!. We would definetly recommend this home to anyone and if we ever get the opportunity to go back to Nova Scotia we would not hesitate to book here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

I loved "living" in the house in Yarmouth. I felt very much at home with the beautiful views, comfortable accommodations and the great location. I'm so glad we chose this house over a hotel or B & B. I felt like I got a great deal. We enjoyed BBQing on the deck and drinking our coffee out there in the morning listing to the birds and watching the tide. When I come back, I would like to stay longer and bring my family. The house would certainly be large enough to accommodate us.

Lovely location and amenities

  • 4 of 5
It was perfect with lovely amenities, a great kitchen and dining area - and a perfect view. Only downside for us was that there was no internet - but we stayed off season so that is not likely an issue in the summer months.
