Annapolis Royal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Quaintly Nova Scotian! A 1930's cedar-shake cottage, nestled in to the mountainside with a wide, close view of the Bay of Fundy!

The Bay of Fundy was one of Frommer's top global destinations and its tremendous tides have been referred to as ‘the heartbeat of the world’!

Nova Scotia is a Lonely Planet top pick and Annapolis Royal won the title of 'Cultureville' of the Maritimes. A short drive from the cottage will take you into the heart of this delightful town! Second place in this contest was Wolfville, just an hour's drive through the scenic Annapolis Valley and you're there!

Nature is big here in Nova Scotia! (Parkers Cove is no exception) You'll find mountains & valleys, oceans & lakes, bays & brooks, big skies & wide views, cliffs & caves, rock coasts, pebble shores and sandy beaches. The cottage offers a respite from the busy world...almost a step back in time. Without TV or internet to distract you, the noise of technology is replaced with birdsong, the soothing rhythm of waves, a breeze blowing through the trees and the babbling of the brook.

Watch our 'nature channel'! Gaze at the calming views of bobbing lobster boats on the Bay from a seat on the porch or reclining in the bed upstairs. Watch the seals watching you. And keep an eye out for porpoises and the occasional whale. Lots of sea birds and ducks as well as our resident eagle - a pair was spotted this year!

And then there are the crows....if they are not talking 'at' you, they are talking about you to their feathered friends. Be sure to count them! Do you know the poem?

One crow sorrow, two crows bliss,

Three crows a letter, four crows a kiss,

Five crows silver, six crows gold,

Seven crows a secret never to be told!

Walk the trails behind the cottage by following the red arrows which mark the path that runs along the brook to the 'bench of contemplation'. Even on a hot summer day, you can rest in the quiet coolness by the forest stream. Deer may make a morning appearance.

Red arrows also mark the short cut and the lowland path which runs above the rock garden. Not a challenging hike but a nice walk through the woods. We all know how good that is for the soul!

Walking sticks are leaning by the front door or can be found in the garage.

Feed your soul with all that is available in the area - the catch of the day, organic produce, local wines and our delicious spring water at the cottage. There are wonderful restaurants in the area and an incredible farmers market on Saturday where you can buy fish and scallops from the Fish Monger, French and German breads, pastries, jams, fresh veg all while you listen to live music! In season I can bring you fresh lobster every Thursday - just let me know a couple days in advance how many you’d like. You will find everything you need to cook and crack a succulent lobster in the kitchen. If that isn't appealing, the Nautical Seafoods at the Parker's Cove wharf offers fresh as well as cook-to-order lobsters.

The cottage is small but cosy ~

Inside the front door, you'll find hooks to hang your jacket, hat or bag. Below there is a built-in bench to perch on or disperse your load of shopping bags or shore finds. Shelves below the bench offer storage for your shoes or what ever you choose. You'll also find games such as Scrabble, Cribbage, Checkers, Backgammon and Cards shelved there.

In the relaxing room, feel free to rest your feet on the table as you slouch back in the comfortable couch and enjoy the view. Pillows and throws add to your repose. A great place to enjoy a impromptu nap.

The eat-in kitchen features the original cottage cupboards, full size refrigerator, an electric stove, a microwave, toaster, blender, mini-grill, coffee maker and an electric kettle. Dishes, glassware, silverware, cooking utensils, tea towels, pots and pans are all there for your use.

There is a storage room off the kitchen for your bulky stuff that leads to the back door and the herb garden.

First floor bedroom offers a double bed and a small closet under the stairs. The original wooden walls are painted white and the wooden floor is a nautical blue. View from the window is of the woods, very green and calm. Open it and enjoy fresh air. There is also a fan available.

Full bathroom that is just steps away from the downstairs bedroom features a shower with great pressure. A washer and dryer is there for your use (liquid detergent and dryer sheets are provided) or feel like a local and use the clothes line and let the sea breeze do the work. You'll find a laundry basket and clothes pins. Also a hair dryer and of course, lots of towels.

Upstairs, there is a bedroom with a double bed. A 1/2 bath is tucked under the eaves. Whitewashed wooden walls and a finished wooden floor make for a cozy space. Windows on all sides so views of water and woods plus great cross breezes. There is a small closet, a chest of drawers and shelves where you'll find books and cds. There is also a cd player and a clock radio. Rest your suitcases on the trunks for easier access. Also for your convenience, a hair dryer and a fan.

Out of doors, a front porch beckons. A 'shore road' bench made by my neighbour makes a comfortable perch. Guests have enjoyed coffee, wine, even meals here. Others have used the porch to meditate, do yoga, write and paint.

Shore access is granted by my neighbours. There is a map on the refrigerator where you can access the rocky shore. Take the bucket and do a bit of beach combing and see what you can find. You never know what washes up with the Fundy tides!

You'll find a friendly community along the road. Take a walk in either direction and enjoy the views. Don't be surprised if someone waves at you or stops to chat. You might get invited in for a coffee or a lobster dinner! The wildflowers that grow here are incredible. Pick a bunch for the cottage.

Bring art supplies, yoga mat, journal, camera, books, binoculars, hiking boots, golf clubs - you never know what you'll be inspired to do!

I live just down the road, 1.2 km - close at hand if you need anything...like warm coats to go whale watching or help cooking a lobster;) If you have a friendly dog that likes to play, we have a non-aggressive fun-loving dog who has a fenced yard for play-dates.

Traumhafter Indian Summer !

  • 5 of 5
Dieses gemütliche Cottage bietet für 1-4 Personen den idealen Standort für einen gelungenen Kanada-Urlaub im maritimen Nova Scotia.
Spektakuläre Sonnenuntergänge direkt vor der Haustüre tauchen die Bay of Fundy jeden Abend in ein neues Licht. Täglich kann man am felsigen Strand bei Spaziergängen Seehunde beobachten, die nur wenige Meter entfernt neugierig ihre Nasen aus dem Wasser heben.
Mit zwei Schlafzimmern, einer Wohnküche, einem verglasten Wintergarten und einem überdachten Frontdeck mit Blick auf das Wasser kann man die Seele baumeln lassen.
Peggy kümmert sich rührend um das Wohlergehen ihrer Gäste und kann gute Ausflugstipps geben. Regelmäßige Ausflüge in den 50 km entfernten Keji-Nationalpark sind absolut lohnenswert.

Amazing Get Away - Want to return already

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Peggy's Cottage. The area is amazing, and the cute cottage is icing on the cake. Here are some of the great things, in no particular order. I cannot think of one downside to the cottage - it really was perfect.
-- quiet and relaxed, but within 10 minutes of Annapolis Royal
-- Annapolis Royal was our favorite little town that we visited in Nova Scotia, we loved walking around the historic town and the Graveyard tour very much
-- close to some wonderful hikes - within 10-15 minute drive (Delap's Cove Hikes have amazing shore/rock views)
-- down the street from Nautical Seafood which will steam up lobster for you that are very fresh and at a great price, you can bring them back to the cottage to feast
-- Peggy and Rex are right down the street, so you can say hello and get advice, they are super friendly
-- there is no cell reception or internet - for me that was a big plus b/c I work on the computer all day, so it was a great break, you just need to drive into Annapolis Royal and go to 1 of their cute coffee shops (there are a few), and you can get on the internet
-- the cottage has a very Nova Scotian feel - it is historic, but has been updated wonderfully for comfort and charm, we slept with the windows open and it was amazing
-- the cottage is outfitted with everything you might need, we felt very well taken care of and it was very clean (and I can be a tough critic when it comes to cleanliness in rentals/hotels)
-- wonderful water/shore access. I spent hours walking around the rocky shore - and found a neat collection of beautiful, smooth rocks to bring home with me
-- great view of the bay from downstairs relaxing room and upstairs bedroom
-- neat herb garden in the back - we used the mint in our tea
-- grill and fire pit in the yard - did not use these, but should have
-- nice relaxing room and outside porch as well - many places to relax and watch/listen to the bay
Thanks Peggy!

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved our stay at Peggy's house in Parker's Cove. The house is immaculate and has everything you need. Peggy checked in on us to make sure we didn't need anything. She was great as was the house. Would definitely go there again. The view from the front porch was gorgeous. The sunsets to die for. In the cove across the street, a family of seals kept us entertained for days.

Charming getaway

  • 4 of 5
This is a sweet place for a getaway. Charming 'old fashioned' kind of place - comfortable and functional. Favourite rooms - lovely upstairs bedroom and front room (great for reading and relaxing). Pretty grounds with a magical brook and paths to explore. Nice views and quiet setting and a bonus - no cell coverage - PERFECT. Hosts are warm, welcoming and helpful.

Incredible Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our dog Lilly stayed at Peggy's cottage in Annapolis Royal for a wonderful week. Much too short a time! I can't say enough about this place. The cottage is just as it's pictured. Cute as a button and so comfortable and cozy. The place was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable with fresh linens that were smooth and cool. The view from the front porch was just beautiful and so relaxing in the evening. Watching the boats and the stars at night were spectacular. There are no cottages close beside here so it feels very private. From the top floor bedroom the view is even more breathtaking. What a way to wake up in the morning! There is also a lovely stream that trickled down the mountain behind the cottage, and a great trail to walk on. There is also a herb garden behind the cottage that we could pick from and a nice BBQ. But the most wonderful thing about this cottage is the owner, Peggy. She couldn't do enough for us. She gave us directions for all the things to see and do, she helped us get some excellent lobsters and even told up how to cook them (the pot, crackers and everything you need is in the kitchen). By the time we left we felt like Peggy was family and all the neighbors were so warm and friendly it really was hard to leave. The cottage isn't big but and there is no TV but if you want a magical place to just unwind and love life, this is it.

Ocean front holiday

  • 5 of 5
My son and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for five days. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Every night we enjoyed sunsets and the ocean view. The trails in behind the cottage were lovely, as well. Thank you for the wonderful visit!

Peggy’s Picks for 2014

1. Cape Forchu Lighthouse, home of the BIG CHAIR. Drive along the ‘French Shore’, try the Friday night seafood dinners at Belliveau Cove market, check out St. Anne (the largest wooden church in North America), Smuggler’s Cove name for Rum-runners, Port Maitland for mile-high lemon meringue pie at Edna's, Mavillette Beach (incredibly long sand beach), Yarmouth (look for lighthouse signs for Cape Forchu but don't miss the fabulous old architecture in Yarmouth.

2. Oaklawn Zoo in Aylesford - a wonderful family run zoo that all ages will enjoy. While in the area, check out Wheatons, Berwick.

3. In Annapolis Royal, the Gardens, the Graveyard tour, the Tidal Power Plant tour, chocolates from Great Expectations and most of all, I recommend the Saturday morning market!

5. Digby Neck - climb Cape Shubel for panoramic views, beach combing at Sandy Cove Beach (great sea glass!), hike to the Balancing Rock, go whale watching and don't miss eating at Lavina’s.

6. Hike at Delaps Cove (waterfalls), Cape Split - a long hike (take a lunch) but you will never forget the view when you reach the end! Keji National Park - enjoy the day hiking and biking, rent canoes and kayaks.
