Welcome to our special piece of Nova Scotia paradise! This post and beam home is located on a 2.3 acre oceanfront lot overlooking the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait. The community is called Dr's Brook and is a 15 minute drive from the town of Antigonish. The house has an unparalleled view of the ocean, P.E.I. across the straight, and gorgeous sunsets off the west deck.
The beach is only 200 feet away from the house where you can swim, snorkel, walk, look for fossils, collect snail shells or just relax and soak up the sun. From the deck you can watch eagles, hawks, blue herons, hummingbirds and loons fly by when you aren't busy laughing at the seals and whales as they frolic in the ocean on their way to their fishing grounds.
The beach is very quiet, as there are only 3 other cottages nearby. The house is ideal for families or couples looking for privacy and relaxation near the ocean. The new screened in sitting room is ideal for eating, reading, relaxing or napping!

Fabulous as always
We had to come down on short notice for some family matters and our stay was accommodated quickly and efficiently. We had stayed here before on vacation and the cottage did not disappoint. Our family loved the cottage and it is just as comfortable in winter as in summer. Great place to stay. Highly recommend. Fabulous as always!
Wow! What a place, view and spot!
We spent 5 days here in late September 2017. The weather was great and the space exceeded our expectations.
Lots of room for four and more. Large windows and deck to look out at the water which was a short walk away. We will be back next year!
We have everything we needed and more, made for a perfect weekend!
The house was great and the view from the front deck was amazing. Would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.
Beautiful view with peace and tranquility thrown in at no charge. Home is comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Nova Scotia.
Laid back hideaway
We were at Piper's Path May 18-28, 2017. It is a very comfortable house right on the ocean. We awoke each morning to the sound of lobster boats working their traps just off the beach and it was fun to use the provided binoculars to see the lobster fisherman working. We saw several bald eagles and even a red fox from the deck and we enjoyed walking the rocky beach looking for treasures. We were very impressed by the people we met on our trip. Without exception, everyone was very friendly and concerned that we enjoyed our visit to Canada. We did a day trip to drive the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton that was very worthwhile, although a long 10 hour day. We were there before tourist season begins, so some activities weren't open yet, but we enjoyed our time in Nova Scotia and would certainly return to Piper's Path. In the nearby community of Arasaig, everyone we met knew the owners of Piper's Path and seemed to hold them in high regard. I give this vacation rental a big "thumbs up".
Bird watching, fossil hunting, St. Francis Xavier University in town, live theatre nightly in Antigonish.
