About Jane Paul

I am a retired French teacher who was born and spent most of my

childhood years in Montreal, Canada except for 5 years in Orange Park,

Florida where my father was a psychologist at the Yerkes chimpanzee

lab and a year on scholarship at a university in Neuchatel,

Switzerland. When I returned to Montreal I met my husband (on a blind

date ) at McGill University where I was an undergrad student and my

husband was a medical student. When we graduated he returned to Penna,

his home state, for his internship. After that his residency training

took us to Texas, Maryland, London, England and Wisconsin. During this

time we had two sons and later adopted a daughter and took in foster

daughters whom we wanted to adopt but the mothers just wanted to hold

on to them loosely. In 1989 my husband’s friend, from undergrad years

at Gettysburg College, purchased Nisbet Plantation on Nevis and we

started buying land next door. We ended up with 4 acres on the ocean

and now that we are retired we live in our own villa for 5 winter

months and rent CORAL REEF VILLA.I have spent every summer of my life

in Nova Scotia and only stay in Penna spring and fall for doctor

appointments, and other essential visits. I am proud to be a

Canadian citizen as well as an American citizen .

Jane Paul purchased this cottage in 1985

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cabin is beautiful and I love the furniture. We found it so nice to come home after a long day of sightseeing and boy did we sightsee!

We saw a male pheasant and we got some nice pictures of a deer and the chipmunk here.

The master bedroom is amazing. One of my dream rooms!

Thank you for the phone calls and Doreen was wonderful. Everyone in Nova Scotia is so friendly no matter where we went it felt like home.

Sandy Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had recently at Sandy Cove Cottage! Everything exceeded our expectations: the location of the cottage close to the water's edge, the sunny wharf with its comfortable chairs, and the private sandy beach on the property not far from the cottage. Boats were also available, had we wanted to use them.

The interior of the cottage is cozy, furnished with over-sized chairs and Nova Scotia antiques. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and the superior linen on the beds. Everything was spotless, including all the appliances. We slept well in the glass-enclosed master bedroom, only feet away from the gentle rhythm of the incoming tides. One night we saw shooting stars in the sky, which were reflected in the calm waters of the cove--very special!

The owners of the cottage are extremely attentive to the needs of their guests and offer a wealth of information about nearby places of interest-- museums, restaurants, craft shops, golf courses, and more. Thanks to them, we came home with some delicious smoked salmon, produced locally (a real treat). We made visits to various South Shore communities, as well as to the Annapolis Valley and even to Pictou. All were easily manageable day trips.

Sandy Cove Cottage provides a bit of everything: an idyllic, comfortable setting, plus plenty of nearby opportunities for stimulation. We loved it!

Tranquility in Nova Scotia

  • 5 of 5

Recently we had the good fortune to spend a week at Sandy Cove Cottage in Chester, Nova Scotia. It couldn't have been more pleasant!

First of all, the setting is peaceful and idyllic. The cottage sits a few feet from a quiet cove. It is surrounded by pine and oak trees with an open field of tall grasses and wildflowers nearby. Wildlife abounds. During our visit we saw deer, wild turkeys, lots of land and sea birds, rabbits and squirrels. I am told there are often foxes as well. The views of the bay from the dock are spectacular. You can also take in the scenery from the flat roof of the ell of the cottage or maybe just find a lounge chair for an afternoon snooze.

The cottage is well-furnished. There are three comfortable bedrooms, a full bath, a small but well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and two sitting rooms with comfortable chairs.

For entertainment there are books, TV, CD/DVD players and radio. The cottage is heated for the cooler times. It is equipped with both dishwasher and washing machine.

In addition to the many hours we spent enjoying the tranquility of the cottage, we also enjoyed sampling the fare at the several restaurants in the Chester area as well as perusing the art galleries which offer both paintings and ceramics among other creations. The golf course is scenically located and open to the public.

An added plus is the friendly, outgoing nature of the hosts as well as their constant attentiveness to needs or requests for information.

In short, we highly recommend this venue for a wonderful stay in Nova Scotia.

A little Piece of Heaven - Sandy Cove Cottageanxio

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot to rest and relax nestled on the water at Chester Basin. The cottage is so cozy and well equipped and you are free to use the boats at the dock' Where else can you open your eyes in the morning and look out at the water where a sailboat swings on it's mooring. Walking trails through pines and maples are a great way to start your day. The owners are on the property and are anxious to provide local knowledge if asked. The quaint towns of Lunenburg and Chester are close and provide a variety of shops and museums This is the spot for a truly peaceful and restful vacation and one which will draw you back time after time.

Beautiful beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Cove Cottage is a rare find. Nestled next to a field of Queen Anne's lace, the cottage is a classic. The beach, wharf, and boats offer loads of entertainment. The owners Jane and Ron are wonderful and go out of their way to make sure their vacationers have a good time. We had such a good time that we hope to be back again soon.

Beautiful beyond words

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Cove Cottage is a rare find. Nestled in a beautiful setting by a field of Queen Anne's lace flowers with access to beach, wharf, and boats on the property, it is hard to find a more peaceful place. The cottage was classic and very clean and the owners Jane and Ron could not do enough for us. We will definitely be back.

REMEMBER WHAT PEACE AND QUIET WERE LIKE?

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Cove Cottage beat our expectations. Everything needed from life jackets to egg lifters were there. The cottage was clean and cozy and very comfortable. We are a seniors couple that visited late in September. The weather was sunny and warm with cool nights. We did not expect the privacy or the peace and quiet of the location .. no sounds of motorboats or cars... a few small sailboats tacked in the breeze of the cove. It was like being back in a previous century. The rowboat, kayak and canoe would be a treat for a younger family. A nearby beach would be great for swimming.

We enjoyed reading books and listening to the breeze in the poplars and birch trees but there is plenty to do including golf, seeing the Bluenose II in Lunenberg, the Maritime Museum in Halifax and enjoying meals out at very good nearby restaurants. We would have no hesitation in returning to this cottage to enjoy the location and the hospitality of Jane and Ron Paul.
