Hideaway Haven is a newly restored home which overlooks the charming Modesty Cove of Indian Harbour. It is the perfect place for a family holiday or romantic getaway. There are three bedrooms so there is plenty of room for up to six people. The view is of a typical quiet Nova Scotian cove with colourful fish houses and the occasional fishing boat going past.
The main floor with the kitchen, dining area and living room is open plan. Large windows overlook the lawn and water and make for a bright and spacious area you will not want to leave! Enjoy the large deck off the living room to take full advantage of the view or enjoy a barbeque and dinner al fresco. The lawn below leads to the waterfront where there is a rocky beach. There is also a floating dock, which is great for swimming to and diving into the crystal clear water.
The handmade kitchen has all the tools you'll need to cook up a storm (better inside than out!). Fully equipped with an island, stove, oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and even some necessary utensils should you decide to cook up a lobster feast. There is also a bathroom with a shower and a washer and dryer. You will no doubt appreciate the large windows all around the house - the view is a picture worth a thousand words!
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a full bathroom with tub/shower. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and large windows to enjoy the view. The second bedroom is bright and airy and has a queen sized bed, as well. The third and smallest bedroom has a double bed.
It is almost impossible to describe what a wonderful surprise and experience my 10 months at Hideaway Haven were! It became home during this time. I will forever hold the picture in my mind of awaking each morning from my exceptionally comfortable bed and enjoying the sunrise that welcomed my day! The sounds of the fishing boats leaving the harbour, geese, ducks and seagulls and the ever present ebb and flow of the tide lulling you to sleep at night. Beautifully and comfortably furnished with a fabulous kitchen and all the conveniences of home. Take off for a long walk all and enjoy the cove and ocean from many different perspectives! Centrally located to stores and restaurants but far enough away to make sure you know you are on vacation! This exquisitely renovated home is calling your name! Do you hear it??? 10++++++ rating!
