WARM SOOTHING SPACIOUS RENOV'D FISHERMAN'S COTTAGE, GRAND VIEW OF BAY, SUNSET

Yarmouth House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Newly renovated spacious 2 story fisherman's cottage. On the upper floor two bedrooms (one the length of the house , the other smaller), a breakfast nook at the back with fridge and microwave, and a large bathroom with a bath on legs from which one has an angled view of the the water. On the landing at front are table and chairs to relax, and look out to sea. Downstairs is fully open except for one bedroom at the front, which has a bay window looking over Cockawit Bay and its glorious sunsets. The same holds for the living room , which has a propane fireplace (very safe, with lovely flames, should fogs make it chilly), a table by the window, and a large couch to read and snooze and watch the constant change in sky and ocean.(As one delighted guest said, 'It's like a movie.') The living room is open to dining area and kitchen at the back. Issues: the house sits by the road, so there is some traffic and children must be watched: there are houses to each side. We have TV and internet. There's baseboard electric heating for cool days, as well as a Victorian style (propane) fireplace for both warmth and atmosphere.

Thank you so much for your hospitality and to Cindy for the jams and pickle preserves, they were much appreciated!

Our 85 year old parents really enjoyed having the bedroom and bathroom on the main floor.

We loved the amazing sunsets, views and of course your beautiful and very comfortable house. We visited Yarmouth, Shelburne and the Acadian Village in Pubinco and did a lot of scenic drives on the Lighthouse Route. Next time we visit this area, we will bring our motorcycle. Many blessings upon this house!

Fabulously enjoyable experience

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best vacation spots of our life. A charming cottage away from the city in Woods Harbour, directly across from the ocean with water and sunset views stunning enough to make any picture look like it has been photoshopped. Cindy came by and we shared a happy hour glass of Nova Scotia wine accompanied by NS cheese and crackers purchased along the way. We asked her to join us and she collected the names and the flavors to make recommendations for future guests. She told us not to buy anything else for the house, just call her and she’d deliver. Cindy is super knowledgeable about the area and gave us recommendations and honest feedback and asked for ours in return. She told us about restaurants and attractions. Next night she came back and dropped off a “little” something for us to try. From her personal bounty she brought us homemade – everything! Homemade salsa, two types of homemade jelly, and two bottles of homemade wine; she apologized for being out of canned beets, her specialty. We found that this was just a kindness precedent for all of Nova Scotia. Our family had a fabulous time, thanks in no small part to the thoughfulness of our kind hosts, who regularly went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. My hope for New England is that we all catch the Nova Scotia Bug!

Merci Beaucoup!

Warm, Inviting and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
During the third week of September 2013, my husband and I had the good fortune to spend a relaxing week in Walter’s absolutely charming home. Situated in the quaint and friendly town of Barrington, we found this rental to be everything, and more than advertised, the home, which has been beautifully updated, is warm and inviting. The atmosphere is that of home rather than a house. The property is a nice size, and well maintained with a lovely ocean view. We loved the wonderful mix of cosy century home living, coupled with the luxuries of updated appliances within a nicely stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the comfy living room which faces the ocean and boasts breath talking sunsets. We were well received by Cindy who is the house keeper (lives off sight), and Remelda who provided us with terrific local information. She has a good knowledge of the area and gave us excellent site seeing advice. Although, never intrusive, both ladies made herself available as needed, and were both personable and well organized. As Walter mentions in his description of the property, the ladies are more than willing to provide fish or lobster dishes on request. As suggested, we did take advantage of the offer and had the best fish n chips dinner EVER! Walter was both prompt and very helpful in correspondence. Overall it was a pleasurable experience, and we would not hesitate to return.

Owner's Response: How pleased we all were to have these fine guests stay at our place and to get such positive feedback from them. They were kind to the two local ladies who make sure there is nothing lacking in the house and advise on the best local spots to visit. Throughout, they relished the warm atmosphere and size of the accommodations, and the beautiful Woods Harbour sunsets. And before taking off for elsewhere, they made sure the place was spotless. We'd be happy to have them back anytime.

Immaculate Retreat near the Ocean

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a relaxing few days in this wonderful immaculately clean house across the road from the ocean. Sitting by the propane fireplace watching the sunset and the lobster fishing boats was heavenly. Both the owner and the local contact were very helpful. I would also recommend The Lobster Shack in nearby Barrington.

Owner's Response: These guests could not have taken greater care of the house nor been kinder to the staff. What a joy for us all to meet such fine people and to hear they found the place as inviting and warm as advertised--and that to the point they've determined to come back later this season. How we'd love to have all our guests of this caliber--and perhaps over time as we develop a loyal clientiele it will be just so. ..

The house is on the road, on the side opposite the ocean, directly facing west onto Cockawit Bay. When approaching from Barrington, the house is on your right, about six or seven properties past an abandoned yellow three story building (also on your right). On your left at that point is the entrance to the harbour and a fishplant. If your are coming from the Yarmouth side, there's a three story white building on your right (the museum), followed by a Baptist church on your left, and the house is six or seven properties on your left from that. Everyone will know the house renovated by the 'doctor' and will be pleased to direct you. If you have any problems, ask for Cindy Goreham, who looks after the house.

Notes:
Two ladies in town will be pleased to bring you their favorite fish and lobster dishes, and one of them will make sure you have all you need, stock the fridge with standard necessities, and clean up after you have gone. If you wish, she can come in and make breakfast for you, but most of our guests to date have preferred to have total privacy and not to be disturbed. Either way, you will enjoy meeting these ladies immensely, and they will tell you what are the best sites about, the easiest way to get to a sand beach, the best place to see birds etc. etc. .
