Overview

About the property

Set on a Hill Overlooking Blueberry Bay With A Short Walk To Beach

One great week in August and most of September still available for your 2017 vacation at our 20 Acres overlooking Blueberry Bay on Nova Scotia's South Shore for a long term stay or getaway holiday. We are finishing our fifth year of operating as of one of the top 10 Nova Scotia best vacation properties. 2017 US exchanges rates are super exciting for our US visitors. Your stay at the Sandpiper will provide you an opportunity to relax and recharge.Special events are welcome and our first wedding was held on the property in 2015. The area is quiet and free from all hustle and bustle.Our Shaker interior finishing and Cape Cod exterior capture the seafaring history of the area. The house is completely custom renovated with a mind to keeping much of the original feel of our ancestral home ( originally built in 1850) with all the modern comforts and tastes. It can accommodate a large family or a group in style for weekly accommodation.The Sandpiper will appeal to those who appreciate activities the local land and sea provide and yet retire to an evening of conversation and up scale accommodation.Our family has spent generations in this pristine place on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. The community is called West Berlin but before 1886 was known as 'Blueberry', after Blueberry Bay - just a 3 minute walk down a meandering country road. The sandpipers that fly constantly over the bay are our naming muse.

The area feels as if it's far from the maddening crowd (and it is) , but is only 15 minutes from the quaint, historic town of Liverpool and 45 minutes from the larger center of Bridgewater and the World Heritage site of Lunenburg. The vibrant city of Halifax is less than two hours away if a trip to the province's capital is in your plans.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The accommodations are spotless, spacious, and have every amenity one could wish for. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable, and the living spaces generous. The Sandpiper could easily accommodate larger groups and is a great home away from home. The location is peaceful and rural without being too far off the beaten track. Nearby beaches are spectacular and Liverpool is just minutes away.

Thanks giving weekend with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the thanksgiving weekend for a group of 7 people. We had our family of 5 and friends from Germany. The house was spacious and with the three bathrooms 4 bedrooms, there ample room for privacy. The large dinning room and grill on the deck were perfect for the thanks giving lunch. The house is well situated for site seeing quaint villages in the area and hiking in kejimkujik. The house was very clean, warm and comfortable.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people staying here (2 families with 6 kids combined). Property was modern, beautiful and in pristine condition (seemed to be newly renovated). Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Bedrooms were large and comfortable. Bathrooms were modern and incredibly clean. Would certainly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, beautiful home. The teenagers were disappointed as far as swimming as the bay was not very appealing. It was rather smelly

Owner's Response: Kim Thanks for the kind comments on the Sandpiper. The local beach is very rustic with lots of seaweed and rock making the water not swimmable. There are two world class beaches at Beach Meadows and Eagle Head within 10 minutes that are great for swimming when the water is warm. I will make note of this to future vacationers. all the best the Lothians

Clean and well organized

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you could need in it! A little confusing to move around in at first with all the doors.

The Sandpiper Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. It has a classic elegance but is homey at the same time. The layout is great for large groups. We had three generations (6 total) and we all had our own space. The beds are comfortable and the house had every amenity. There is a beautiful beach within 2 miles. We would absolutely return and recommend!!
