Nova Scotia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 1 BR w/loft, 1 BA, Sleeps 2-3.

If you're looking for a romantic waterfront getaway for two, or a charming cabin for a small family, you'll love 'Sunfish Cottage.' This rustic property sits right on the shores of St. Margaret's Bay and is located at the end of a forested private lane on the Aspotogan Peninsula on Nova Scotia's south shore. You'll enjoy the comfortable main floor bedroom and sunny family room/kitchen combination with a cathedral ceiling. There's also a small upstairs loft (accessible by a pull-down ladder).

Grill your steaks or seafood on the deck overlooking the water. Fish from the rocks, launch your kayak, hike the country lanes, or bike the scenic Aspotogan Peninsula. Whatever you decide to do, you'll look forward to coming back to this lovely cottage at the end of the day.

Vacationers' Paradise: Whether you while away your afternoons admiring the waterfront views or just enjoy using the cottage as a base for touring the beautiful South Shore, you'll love 'Sunfish.' The cottage is located minutes from the charming village of Hubbards where you'll find delightful restaurants and lobster dinners-- as well as groceries, gas, banking, etc.. A scenic 20-minute drive along the lovely Aspotogan Peninsula will bring you to Chester, the hilly village that is the yachting capital of the South Shore. To the west beyond Chester lies the World Heritage Town of Lunenburg, which is the home base of the tall ship Bluenose II. And you won't want to miss Halifax, a delightful international harbour city that features maritime museums, fine restaurants, parks, theatres and shopping experiences galore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is perfect. Cute cottage. The equipment inside is complete. The view to the sea well worth the go. The location is ideal to discover Nova Scotia. Close to Halifax, Chester, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay. The colours of the fall are magnificent.

Sunfish Cottage Review - 10-08-10

  • 5 of 5

Sunfish Cottage is exactly as described by the owners. The directions to the cottage were good and it was easy to find.

The cottage is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessities for cooking and BBQing.

The cottage is situated on the north shore of Owls Head Island, surrounded by rocks, pines, and a spectacular view of St. Margaret Bay. During our stay, it was quiet, secluded, and undisturbed peace. It is immersed in fresh sea air, wind through the pines, surf on the shore, and the calls of the seabirds.

It is ideally located for short day trips to such picturesque places as: Chester, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Peggy’s Cove, Crescent Beach, and Halifax. Beautiful beaches and wonderful seafood restaurants are only minutes away.

We highly recommend Sunfish Cottage. We would certainly like to stay there again during our next visit to Nova Scotia.
