Stunning Maritime Experience

  • 5 of 5

3 couples with 3 motorcycles, and 1 support vehicle were looking for a Maritime Experience. Wow were we blessed to enjoy this extraordinary property! The excitement and experience didn't stop from the moment we arrived. We were warmly greeted by the owners of the property and had the privilege of meeting many of our neighbors who made us feel like we were part of their community. The location was perfect for early morning running to Peggy's Cove and evening sunsets on the bay. This house was perfect for 3 couples in all ways. If you want to discover the South Shore of Nova Scotia, I can't imagine there would be a better place. Be sure to ask questions because you will find that the local people will be proud to share their knowledge of the area. Restaurants and fresh sea food were within minutes of the house. Day trips to discover Halifax, Mahone Bay, and Lunenburg were easy and relaxing. Words can't express the appreciation we feel towards Josephine, Joe, Tom, TJ (thanks for the "Jump" pictures), Vern, Olga, Peter, Scott and Kim. The evening we spent together was unforgettable. Whether you want to simply relax and enjoy the ocean, run, hike, kayak or take pictures of the beautiful landscape it is all within a short distance of this lovingly restored fisherman's home.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. The house was perfect -- very clean and spacious. A bit rustic but what we were looking for. The location is excellent -- right on the water with the sound of waves audible through the open windows in the evenings and a short walk up the road to Peggy's Cove. We would highly recommend this property for a nice quiet comfortable getaway.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is charming, very clean and has the best view of the water while being protected from the wind. The location is an amazing home base for day trips to Halifax, Lunenburg etc. We walked the rocks into Peggy's Cove each day - what a unique opportunity to have available. A small community that provided a relaxing atmosphere while having a few excellent restaurants nearby, fresh cooked lobster store, a general store within walking distance and Tom across the street who was informative and very hospitable. I have no suggestions for improvement as it was completely PERFECT!

Lovely home and area

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the house for one week and had a great time. The house is very charming with excellent views. Lots to do in the nearby area including hiking, kayaking, sightseeing. Tom and Donna across the street have great hospitality and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

We found Rhubarbs had great food, atmosphere and fairly reasonably priced. We also liked nearby Ryers for fresh lobsters and Edna in Halifax.

Fantastic and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This old fisherman's home was the ideal setting for our trip to Nova Scotia. The four of us stayed six nights and wished we could have stayed two weeks. The home was Great and met all our expectations with no regrets. We visited Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Fort Anne. Our best afternoon was spent along the seashore between the home and Peggy's Cove. Awesome views. Would highly recommend the home and area for a great visit to the Nova Scotia. Tom and Donna, across the street were a wealth of information and made us Cajuns feel right at home. Hope to visit again in the future.

great for a girlfriends or family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for our multi-generational group. My sister and I (60 years old) took our 80+ year old aunts on a short trip to Nova Scotia. This place was just perfect. They had the downstairs bedroom and bathrooms and we each had our own bedroom and bath upstairs. The kitchen was well equipped. Loved the décor, it is unique and comfortable. Any question I had before and during the visit, the owner answered quickly (via email or text) and was a lot of help. Donna across the road was available if I had any questions while there, and she had great hints. It is 'around the curve' from Peggy's Cove and the back door looks out a cove of its own. The internet was fast and helpful for making reservations for the return trip home. We had breakfast in the farmhouse...and then ventured out the rest of the meals. Great home base for visiting Halifax, Lunenberg, Peggys' cove. The Beds were so comfortable and I am going to ask where the quilts on the bed were from, I want one for my home, it was so comfy. Each room had its own thermostat, so if you preferred a cooler room for sleeping, as I do, it was great or if you were my 80+ year old Aunts and needed a warmer room to sleep in, that also was possible.
