Overview

Nova Scotia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This cottage is in a gorgeous location. It sits on a granite bluff overlooking the ocean, with greater than 180 degrees of spectacular water views. It is on 3 acres, and is the only home on the ocean side of the road, insuring privacy and open views. This is prime Nova Scotia ocean frontage. The views are unsurpassed.

You would be at a peaceful oceanfront retreat, but Halifax, a major international city is only 20 minutes away! Prospect is also about 10 miles from the major tourist destination of Peggy's Cove, which is a quaint oceanfront village, with a much visited lighthouse on a granite coast. Prospect is an oceanfront fishing village. The village is fairly quiet, but the people are very friendly and can share their way of life with you. Waterfront recreation abounds with everything from sea kayaking to sailing, water skiing, motor boating, fishing and whale watching. There is a two mile stretch of undeveloped public land ('crown land', as it is nominally owned by the queen of England) right next to the cottage that is a fabulous place to walk, run mountain bike or hike. The coast is spectacular to drive along with many picturesque villages such as Peggy's Cove, Lununberg, Mahone Bay, and Chester nearby. Restaurants are plentiful, with delicious seafood. Halifax is a major international city and has first class activities and attractions, including Celtic music, professional sports and entertainment, the Citadel fortress, a charming waterfront, and an excellent nightlife.

This is a simple, but neat and comfortable cottage with all the basic amenities, and then some, on a spectacular location. I constantly update/upgrade it. It now has free Wi Fi internet and cable TV. New mattress and paint for 2013. If you are looking for 5-star resort accommodations, this is not for you! But if you want to be surrounded by gorgeous oceanfront in your private getaway, while still having a major international city nearby, you will be very happy. The cottage is best for 2 people, but there is a sleeper sofa in the living room, and a couple of beds in the unfinished, but amazingly neat and clean attic.

Please note Nova Scotia and Canada tax of 15%. Pet fee $75/pet. PRICES ARE IN USD, but I have reduced my rates about 10% to reflect the weakening of the $CDN!

About Morry or Nina

I love this cottage which I have owned and cared for for more than 20 years. So far, every renter has also loved this property. I have excellent support staff there.

Morry or Nina purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Morry or Nina chose Nova Scotia

This location is stunning, and Nova Scotia is very scenic, with very friendly people.

What makes this cottage unique

The view is spectacular, and miles of undeveloped scenic coastline abut the cottage. The cottage is in excellent shape and is quite cozy and charming. Nearby Halifax offer a big city atmosphere, but you would feel like you are in a totally separate world while at the cottage.

We loved Prospect!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this wonderful cottage in the tiny little fishing village of Prospect. We loved eveything about it; the location, the cottage, the town. It was an easy drive to get to Peggy's Cove and into Halifax. The weather was spectacular. We bought lobsters at Ryers in Indian Harbor and brought them back to cook at the cottage on a couple of nights. We also dined at Rhubarb which was fantastic. We walked out on the bluffs everyday - a great hike and scenery is to die for!

All & all; the cottage could not have been more perfect. Very clean and well kept with everything we needed. Thanks again Morry for a wonderful, memorable vacation; our 1st to Nova Scotia, but we will return!

A getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

I thought places like this only existed in books. A picturesque cabin surrounded by wild seashore on one side and a quaint ex-fishing village on the other? Too good to be true! It is very true though, and Morry's done a great job maintaining the place. My wife and I adored our time there, and we're already missing grilling lobster by the seashore and being lulled to sleep by the crashing waves. Do yourself a favor and stay here for a week, you won't regret it!

Spectacular Setting

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed the location of this little cabin. The views, privacy, and proximity were exactly what we wanted. It was convenient to drive to Halifax, down to Lunenburg, and over to the Bay of Fundy to see their sights. We loved to walk on the amazing shoreline boulders nearby, enjoy a picnic, and watch the waves come crashing in; we were the only people around. The cabin was easy to find and the hosts were very helpful. We bought fresh fish several days and cooked them at the cabin, there was everything we needed in the kitchen. The bedroom is quite small and without a place to hang clothes but the views cannot be beat. In fact, we loved the views from every window. There were ample towels and bottled water was supplied. We truly enjoyed our stay and recommend this cabin if privacy and beautiful views are important.

R&R and then some

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic is an understatement -

We never imagined this place to be as breath taking, tranquil, and rejuvenating for the soul.

Key highlights:

- Freshly picked flowers from the fields near by waiting on the table as we entered

- listening to the ocean meet the shoreline

- enjoying views of the bay and Atlantic from every window

- climbing boulders that reminded us of Garden of the Gods in Colorado

- quaint village with friendly locals

- short hike to the top of the boulder to watch the sun set and take in the ocean spray

- each day ended with local fresh surf & turf on the grill overlooking the bay and a stroll through town

- making plans to return - not soon enough!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. You can walk right out the front door along the beautiful coastal trail, for miles. Picnics on the deck. Sit at the bench overlooking the ocean next to the cottage. A view towards the small village, very quaint. Best to pick up drinking water at the local store, (Nova Scotia). Perfect for a couple. Clean and comfortable, with good access to that part of the country. A must!
