West Dover House Rental Photos and Description
A great place for a couple to spend a relaxing, quiet week on the coast.
Welcome to Marshwind!
Located in the historic fishing village of Prospect, perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean - where crashing waves, granite rocks and wildlife surround you.
Open the door and you are just a few feet from the ocean's edge. Enjoy ocean views from every window in the home.
Stay inside and watch the tide ebb & flow from a comfy chair or venture out for one of the many coastal-trail or in-land hikes. Don't forget your camera, you will see beauty in the amazing vistas & abundant wildlife. Marvel at how plants and trees cling to the exposed granite coast.
Interested in birds? You will be able to add many coastal and ocean bird species to your list. Birds often make a stop in our backyard during their migrations in the fall & spring. Winter brings an abundance of Northern ducks.
Bring your kayaks or rent from a local outfitter - launch them from the boat ramp in your back-yard and explore some of the best kayaking coastline in Eastern Canada - shipwrecks, deserted islands and lighthouses are just waiting for you to discover.
Marshwind is perfect for a couple looking to get away from it all and enjoy some peace at the seaside - while still being close enough to it all for day-trips to Nova Scotia's attractions.
In 2012 Marshwind, was used as a set location for the Hallmark movie 'Christmas with Holly'.

Prospect Village is simply magical. We had lived in the Village for several years and knew that we never wanted to leave.
We jumped at the chance to buy this 150 year old Fisherman's Cape home and then proceeded to bring it back to life. We restored it's original charm with an architectural flair and updated it with modern, eco-friendly conveniences.
Living in Prospect is like living in a wildlife park - with the ocean just steps from the home, you can sit back with your tea and watch wildlife in their natural enviroment. If you want to get a bit closer to the action - there are several coastal & in-land hikes
This home gives a rare glimpse into the past - when you first arrive in the Village, you will feel like you have stepped back in time as many of the homes have mantianed their original designs.
Nature is all around you - bird lovers will enjoy spotting Eagles, Herons, Willets, rare shore birds and coastal ducks to name a few.
In 2012 Marshwind was featured as a key location in the Hallmark movie 'Christmas with Holly', using shots from both the inside and outside of our home. Many movies have been shot in our beautiful village over the years.
