About Bernadette Carini
Here is a picture of me and my husband Dave visiting the Jost Winery in the summer of 2014. It's one of our many 'summer rituals' when we spend our two weeks at Bonnie's each summer.
My sister Carla and I inherited the property from our mother, Bonnie. My mom grew up in nearby Springhill, Nova Scotia. My sister and I now both live in the states.
We use the cottage for a few weeks in the summer and then rent it for the rest of season. We get folks in during the spring, summer and fall. It's a lovely spot. Wish we lived closer!
Bernadette Carini purchased this cottage in 2002
Why Bernadette Carini chose Amherst
I spent summers in Nova Scotia as a child and LOVE that my son Danny is now doing the same. Even more, I love that for the two weeks we stay at Bonnie's, none of us are glued to a computer, phone, or TV. Instead, we ride bikes, hang at the beach, garden, kayak, or take day trips. I always return to Boston, after our visits to Bonnie's, rejuvenated and renewed.
What makes this cottage unique
I especially love the mornings at Bonnie's-by-the-Beach. I love having coffee on the porch, where I can see the ocean. Then, I usually take a walk around the 'loop' before heading to the beach. I've started kayaking so I can now explore the other beaches as well.
Evenings are lovely too. I like sitting on our porch and watching the hummingbirds feed. Sometimes we watch a movie from our video library (we have 68 free DVDs for you to choose from). At other times we have a bonfire or enjoy 'happy hour' with the neighbors. It's a relaxed way to live, and I just love it.
The rustic, cozy feel of the cottage is just perfect. It's my absolute favorite place to be.
