About janice

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

Why janice chose Nova Scotia

Prospect Bay although is stunningly beautiful somehow remains the best secret in Nova Scotia. Its very tranquil yet close to Halifax .

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Perfect anniversary retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the opportunity to celebrate our first wedding anniversary at the Getaway Cottage in Prospect Village - and we hope to return again next year!

The cottage was very clean, cosy and quiet, and had everything we needed onsite. We took advantage of the wood-stove in the evenings and spent much of our time on the dock enjoying the beautiful fall scenery.

Owner's Response: The cottage is a great little place for a couple to enjoy their honeymoon or anniversary. We are so very pleased to be a part of life's happy times, here on Prospect Bay.

Cosy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

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

Pet friendly


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)

Owner's Response: This review certainly sounds quite a bit like our place but I am not 100% certain if it is our property. We do not have any boats available to use and never have so we would not like to mislead anyone with that " pro " point. The cottage does have one neighbour and they do have a dog ,but it is a miniature poodle. As winter is closing in , its lovely to think about summer on the Bay!

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
