The cottage sits in a community that was started in the 1600's, a quiet fishing village. Broad Cove is a small scenic seaside village that feels that you have walked back in time at least 40 years. Just minutes walking distance to the beach. At low tide you can calm dig in the cove. The cove is lined with some old fishing buildings that some have been converted to summer cabins.
Sitting on the south shore of Nova Scotia you are in the perfect place to explore. 40 minutes from Lunenburg - UNESCO World Heritage site, home of the Bluenose, sailing and whale watching, etc. Kejimkujik National Park nearby. Local beaches to include Greenbay and the local favorite McLeod's Canteen are not to miss. , Cresent Beach and Risser's Provincial Beach with its spectacular boardwalks. Take a trip to the Ovens or Peggy's Cove.
The Petite Riviere Winery is a wonderful visit just 15 minutes away with local antique and art gallery shopping. Don't miss the delicious baked goods, breakfast and lunches from the famed LaHave Bakery only 15 minutes from the cottage, you will not want to miss the delectable scent of this bakery :)
Only 1 1/2 hours from Halifax and 25 minutes from the provincial town of Bridgewater that has all the amenities that a city can offer, mall, movie theater and many restaurants.

I consider Nova Scotia home though I was born in California. My father was born in Petite Riviere My family has been coming here for 45 years
David Kempton purchased this cottage in 1987
This cottage has great sentimental value, this was the home of my great aunt. I have many extended family members living the serene community of Broad Cove. I want to share the magic of the community and cozyness of the cottage
The peace and quiet, the fresh smell of the ocean, the well water, the 2 acres of lawn for the kids to run and play. The short walk to the beach while stopping for a snack at The Best Coffee Gallery next door to the cottage.
We arrived at 10 pm on Sunday. The mold was overwhelming. My husband used his puffers for his asthma and we slept and left on Monday morning as soon as we woke up. Worst experience ever.
I had the opportunity to stay at this cottage for a few days and had a fantastic time. The cottage was cute and very spacious. Just a short stroll to the cove and awesome beaches nearby where we spent most of our afternoons. I would definitely like to stay there again to unwind and relax with friends.
This is a heritage house with a quirky, nothing-matches vibe. Everything was clean, well-maintained and in working order. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and good-quality pots and pans. There was plenty of hot water for showers; the water pressure was a little less than we're accustomed to, but certainly adequate. The bedrooms and kitchen comfortably fit 8 people. The living room would be a tight squeeze for 8 people, but 5 or 6 could comfortably enjoy spending a rainy evening watching DVDs or videocassettes (which can be rented from the nearby general store in Petite Riviere) on the nice new TV.
Our electronics-addicted family greatly appreciated the easy walking distance to the Best Coast Cafe, with its excellent wireless service, great food and super-friendly staff. This cottage is also an easy walk to Broad Cove beach, which isn't big or fancy, but turned out to be our family's favourite beach. We parents could relax on our towels in the sand while our lively, young son tirelessly explored the nearby rocks and tide pools. We also enjoyed hiking the Bear Trap road, which begins at the left side of the beach just past the old fishing huts. Beautiful ocean views. Fascinating geology.
We enjoyed many other nice beaches in the area -- Rissers, Green Bay, Crescent, Cherry Hill, and the slightly further afield Thomas Raddall. Our son never tired of looking for interesting stones and shells.
Our son was curious about the Petite Riviere Winery; though it will be more than a decade until he reached drinking age, the folks there were so patient and kind about answering his barrage of questions. We parents thought the wine and cider were delicious!
As do many other tourists we enjoyed the caves at The Ovens (we thought they were worth the entry free) and the Maritime Fisheries museum in Lunenberg (and Lunenberg in general). If you plan to take the LaHave cable ferry to get to these destinations, be sure to stop in at the LaHave Bakery.
Would definitely recommend this location to others, especially families with children.
