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 along route 107.

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.

Immaculate and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place, well run, and handy to Porters lake. Thank you. Only negative is the mosquitos which were vicious due to location. Much worse than in other properties we have stayed in in the area.

Owner's Response: Mosquitoes were bad everywhere this year for some reason, this location is probably better than most with the ocean breeze at high tide blowing them away!

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.
