What makes this house unique

We have updated the property over the years, so it now has a modern touch but still feels historic. The house is perfectly situated facing south west over an Atlantic seaside inlet at the head of a long estuary. Downtown Halifax is an easy direct 35 minute drive.

Excellent all round

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. Even though we visited in the middle of winter the property still felt cosy and warm. The property has all you could need for a holiday of any length and the owner is very helpful with nothing being too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this property to all we know.

Nice property on a small lake

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained and comfortable cottage with all the necessary facilities for an enjoyable stay. Good kitchen with everything needed. Good laundry in basement, although a drying rack and some pegs would be handy. Lovely bed in main. Good internet.

Easy to contact helpful property manager, Denise with any questions

Good local hiking, including the excellent Musquobodoit Trailway and side tracks

A charming home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice character home with all the amenities you need ideally situated outside Halifax and about 40 min from Halifax International airport. It is a bright, sunny house stocked with everything you might need. Owner very accommodating and quick to respond to emails. Had a great stay and would certainly return again. Would highly recommend to other travellers.

Awesome stay minutes from Halifax

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully maintained, cozy and amazingly located cottage was the best vacation I've been on. Minutes to four of the best beaches Nova Scotia has to offer. Twenty minutes to Dartmouth, an hour to Peggy's Cove. Kitchen was fully equipped and dinning room was excellent for full dinners. East of the location many superb fish markets. Live lobster, clams, scallops, haddock. Numerous places to eat out and enjoy local catch minutes in both directions along the coastal highway. The view from the kitchen and deck of the ocean inlet/bay and manicured lawn was incredible. Friends vacationing in same area come over for dinner and loved the place. Local residents and all people in town very friendly. All amenities of home are local as well. Large grocery stores, fast food, Tim Hortons, etc. My wife and kids loved the stay and our guest from France appreciated the framed travel shots of Paris and France throughout the cottage. If relaxing is what you want this is the place to be.

Perfectly Charming

  • 5 of 5

"We have vacationed using self-catering cottages and apartments in the Western US, in Paris, Cannes (one wine glass) Nice, Valencia (no saucepans), Rome (no coffee maker) and in both Northern and Southern Ireland (too much rain, even for a native) and I have to say that we have never rented a nicer or better equipped place than yours. You have spoiled us and I doubt that we will ever again see a nicer or better equipped holiday rental than your cottage. Thank you for this lovely experience on our first trip to Canada." I wrote this to AJ just after our vacation and I wouldn't change a word of it.
