This gem of a cottage while right on the water is sheltered by trees allowing for both gorgeous views and privacy.Your own private wharf provides for great swimming and a small pebbly beach when the tide is out. The cottage is 20 minutes to Peggy's Cove 30 minutes to downtown Halifax. Picturesque Prospect Village is only a 5 minute drive where one of the best hiking trails can be found in Nova Scotia. The cottage comes fully furnished with linens AND basic Internet Service. The cottage sleeps 5 guests comfortably in 3 small bedrooms. One has a set of bunks the second bedroom has a single bed and the third bedroom has a double bed.
My family and I purchased this cottage when our children were little and certainly enjoyed the best days of our lives on Prospect Bay.
janice purchased this cottage in 1997
Prospect Bay although is stunningly beautiful somehow remains the best secret in Nova Scotia. Its very tranquil yet close to Halifax .
This cottage is unique in its setting. Once you arrive you are guaranteed privacy but located perfectly to carry on exploring Nova Scotia's South Shore or to pop into Halifax.
We stayed at this cottage just a week ago and had a very pleasant stay - my first time on the East Coast and very good value for money. I'm noting my list of pros and cons, but bear in mind, this is a cottage and not a city home with all mod cons - however with the picky renter in mind I'm giving a mention to things that most people can easily forgive.
A very pretty location on the waterfront.
Cottage is very eclectic and cute
Relaxing atmosphere with a fire pit and gas BBQ and lots of places to sit and enjoy the outdoors/water
Boats available (check with owner before using)
Great access to Peggy's Cove and Halifax.
Includes bed linens and towels
Clean and well maintained property
Very pleasant and accommodating landlady
The property is on a steep hillside, so access is a little difficult if you're unsteady on your feet, but not insurmountable if you take it easy.
Bedrooms small - no choice but to be intimate, so make sure you like your room mate.
Beds have footboards - a little tricky for the taller sleeper.
Waterpressure intermittent (you're not in a rush, so take your time and enjoy a different pace)
Wifi intermittent (you really should have left your tech devices at home - remember you're supposed to be getting away from it all)
Kitchen a little cramped (challenging for two people to work in, but if you choreograph well it can be a beautiful thing)
The property is pet friendly, but the property isn't fenced (so beware the Pit Bull next door who apparently likes to eat small dogs - just make sure your dog is smothered in Wasabi and you'll be fine)
The cottage is situated right on Prospect Bay that offers a beautiful view and great swimming. The historic and picturesque Prospect Village is a 5 minute drive from the cottage which is a wonderful place to stroll through with a great government wharf. Prospect also features a breath taking yet easy hike called High Head which follows the coast line and is as wonderful as Peggy's Cove for coastal views but without the crowd
a tentative reservation becomes confirmed upon receipt of $200 balance to be paid upon arrival.
