About Donna James

We have lived in the Maritimes all our lives and love being close to the water wether it is on the lake or the ocean. Nova Scotia has so many beautiful landscapes to enjoy. We enjoy traveling and have used VRBO for all our accomadation arrangements.

Donna James purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Donna James chose Halifax

This is a city cottage nestled on Springfield Lake. Enjoy the waters edge, swimming, and the view of an island, and wildlife. The cottage is located in the city limits but has a very private feel.

What makes this cottage unique

Halifax waterfront is only 20 minutes away. Great for business travelers who want to relax too or tourists that just want to be near the city. Golf courses are close by and metro transit buses if you want to avoid downtown parking issues. Full kitchen, gas barbeque for those who like to cook their own meals.

An Absolute Gem!!

  • 5 of 5
While visiting relatives in the area for a week, we chose to find our own accommodations during our stay. Thankfully we found The Loon's Nest. It met all of our needs and desires, plus some! What a gem!! We were not the least bit disappointed and would highly recommend staying here. We will never be satisfied with a hotel room again. The pictures provided on VRBO website are a true representation of the cottage - but it's even better in person! It's very clean, well maintained and well thought out...inside and out. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, full size refrigerator, stove/oven and two coffee machines. No line ups for the bathroom as there are two. The beds are very comfortable with beautiful bedding. Lots of nice quality towels and linen. The laundry appliances made for light packing. We were never cold. Each room could be control to suit an individual's preference as there are baseboard heaters. And there's a cozy fireplace in the living room. The cottage is in a nice quiet, low traffic neighbourhood. The owners have designed the property to ensure privacy. Communications with the owners is beyond excellent! Thank you Donna and Terry for the opportunity to rent your beautiful cottage. It was the cherry on the top of our vacation.

Perfect Christmas with Family

  • 5 of 5
After travelling through an ice/snow storm for two days, we were never so happy to reach our lovely destination at the Loon's Nest. Terry called us just before we arrived and had everything shovelled out and light's on for our evening arrival. The cottage was the ideal spot for our very first Christmas away from home, visiting out daughter in Halifax. The location was great for day trips to Halifax and area and to Wolfville and Lower Sackville for holiday groceries. The bed was super comfy and Donna made sure everything necessary was supplied. We set up a tree with decorations we brought with us and it was the next best thing to being at home. Thank you Terry and Donna for making our first Christmas away just perfect.

Serene Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this homey cottage for one week.
When we arrived, the fireplace was on, the lights were dimly lit
and we knew this was going to be a good week. Serenity.
Thanks to Terry and Donna who made our stay a perfect one.

The place to stay in Halifay area

  • 5 of 5
It is a wonderful clean cottage in a calm residential area. Everything we needed was there: comforable beds, great cooking utensils, bbq pit, and the best of all: the two chairs privately located in the lake. Shopping near by, and it was a good start for our excursions to Halifax, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove and so forth. It was a great stay and we enjoyed it very much. If we would ever come back to this area, this is the place to stay!

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do justice to this beautiful warm and cozy cottage. It was an oasis for me. When we arrived late in the evening, it was dark, it was raining and I was exhausted from a long flight from Edmonton, Alberta. The moment we turned on the lights, I was blown-away by the beauty, small touches by the owners and obvious loving care this cottage has had over the the years. If you're looking for an excellent getaway, close to the city and peaceful, this place is for you! I'll hopefully be back next summer!

Amazing!! Lakeside Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is perfect, even more cozy yet spacious, the pictures depict it accurately except for the pleasant surprise you will have upon arriving - it is better! We travelled as a family of 4 with two children to attend a family reunion (I am a Maritimer) and explore the area with the kids. The Loon's Nest's stunning property gave us a home away from home. The layout allowed privacy and it was so nice to have laundry right in the cottage. We hosted many family gatherings and everyone enjoyed the huge deck, fire pit and dock. Lots of extras are provided such as the canoe, lifejackets, etc. The cottage is stocked fully, there was not a dish pan or utensil we found ourselves wishing we had. The owners are wonderful, extremely responsive and helpful, there were even fresh flowers waiting for us. Our family who lives locally all want to rent this now too - just for a perfect getaway in your own town. I can't say enough good things about this property - do not hesitate, snag it if you are thinking of it. Everything is close, from pizza and groceries to adventures and sightseeing in Halifax and surrounding areas. We had a wonderful run in a park 10minutes from the cottage and I ran around the beautiful Springfield lake numerous times, excellent and pretty loop! We will be planning our next Maritime holiday around ensuring we get to stay here again!
