Why David Kempton chose Petite Riviere
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
What makes this cottage unique
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.
