Comfort and water front views in the pines

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this place at the last minute for our final 3 days in Nova Scotia. The cottage is located on a small salt water inlet just southwest of Halifax about an hour and 20 minutes from the airport. The photos do not do it justice. The cozy one-bedroom cottage is located water front with nearly 180 degree views of the water. There are 3 different decks from which to view the water: one sunny, one for eating near the grill and one that sits back near a storage shed for more shade. The pine trees in front of the house along with two empty lots on either side give lots of privacy. The place was clean and well-kept and the kitchen well supplied. The washer and dryer were convenient. The queen sized bed was very comfortable in the small but cozy single bedroom. There was a Murphy bed in the main living space for extra sleeping, if required. There was a canoe and life vests for guest use. Michelle, the owner, was friendly and gave us lots of information about the area so we could decide where we wanted to spend our time. She also showed us a water front deck at the edge of the property where we could go to see sunset views the best. This was a great location to tour Lunenberg, Peggy’s Cove and other nearby waterfront towns and villages. Michelle does not post an on line calendar, so you need to call about availability. Definitely would recommend this to friends and family and would love to return for a longer stay!
