The cottage is situated on a spacious 2 acre mature landscaped property. The setting provides privacy, quiet, peaceful ocean views and some amazing sunsets.

We are Carlo and Becky Weickert. After 30 years of running our own businesses, we retired in 2010 to enjoy our two sons' families and especially our three granddaughters. We look forward to spending more time on our boat, travelling around the world and generally enjoying our 'Ocean Oasis'. We look forward to sharing 'Ocean Meadow Cottage', our local knowledge, experiences and love of N.S. with visitors be they from Canada, the USA, or other parts of the world. We welcome all!
Carlo Weickert purchased this cottage in 1991
Nova Scotia became our adopted home in 1990 after living in many parts of Canada.We love the Maritime life style and want to share it's beauty, friendly people and many diverse activities with as many people as possible. Ocean Meadow Cottage is ideally situated for exploring both rural and urban adventures. Nova Scotia is truly a hidden treasure just waiting for you to come and experience.
The peaceful beauty of our property is exceptional and yet you are close to many amenities and attractions. Wonderful for boaters, fishermen, whale watching and other outdoor activities as well as city and tourist venues. Halifax is filled with history, culture, attractions, great dining and beauty.
Thank you for the most incredible vacation experience! You thought of every little detail from beginning to end. Loved the wine, flowers, music and fireplace on arrival. The cottage is pristine and beautiful. Your blue binders of information and tours of N.S. and eateries was so comprehensive! This was the perfect holiday so of course we'll be back next Oct.!
A final thank you for the "Welcome Hug" - it was grand (you're a true Maritimer!) This place is amazing and you are the ultimate ambassadors of hospitality!
My adult daughter, who lives in Tennessee, and I spent seven days at the Ocean View Cottage, hosted by Carlo Weickert. Prior to our arrival Carlo furnished a large amount of info re the area, dining establishments, travel routes affording the best views, etc. So, we were somewhat ready, we thought. But once we arrived and Carlo took a lot of his time to 'brief' us on the various options, we realized that we knew only a little of what Nova Scotia offered during day trips from St. Margaret's. Each day we followed a different route and each day, other than two days dining at Lefty's, we enjoyed the cuisine offered by different restaurants recommended by Carlo...on the matter of views and natural beauty, Carlo proved correct; on the matter of dining, Carlo was even more to be complimented!!
The Cottage itself was perfect for our needs and large enough that it would easily have accommodated two couples, with or without children. I marveled at the cleanliness and layout of the Cottage, as well as the fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Quite easily the Cottage could readily serve as a full-time residence as is, it was so complete and so spacious!
Thank you Carlo for sharing your Cottage and all the grounds, including your private dock with the 47' Bayliner (no, Carlo might have drawn the line on his generous hospitality had we wanted to take the boat out on our own!).
I'd recommend that anyone looking to spend some time in Nova Scotia, and to do so with beautiful housing and great hospitality, all at a very reasonable price, contact Carlo and line up Oceanview Cottage!!!
From the morning coffee in the sun on the East deck to the evening wine in the screened in porch as the sun went down in the west Oceanview Cottage was amazing! Being centrally located between Halifax and Lunenburg was perfect for us to be able to do all that we were looking to do in the least amount of time. Carlo's guidebooks could have kept us busy for months and certainly helped us plan our days (as well as our meals). Even the dog was more relaxed than I had ever seen her! :-)
We arrived very late and Carlo(owner) was right there to help us. Great guy and so service oriented. The house was immaculate, everything we needed was there! While we were there, I called my sister and told her I'd found her next vacation spot, Oceanview Cottage! We had so much fun exploring the area using the indepth travel info provided by the owners. Wish we had eaten at Lefty's early in the week so we could have returned. Best desserts ever!( next to my grandmother's.) Loved it! Go there!
The cottage is a superb place to stay, well equipped, relaxing and the location is very central so it is the ultimate tourist spot but it makes you feel right at home. We will be back next year for sure.
We were surprised and pleased to find the cottage we had rented to be so well equipped and comfortable. Our hosts had supplied detailed information for dining venues, points of interest and entertainment. We appreciated Carlo's non intrusive care and kindness that made our holiday so memorable. We would certainly recommend it to our friends and look forward to returning. Again, out thanks to Carlo and Becky.
Beautiful, quiet and peaceful location. Owner provided much useful information about the area. Close to grocery store and attractions, but feels secluded and out of the way. Highly recommended.
Our private road and driveway are great places to walk your dog. If you enjoy great scenery while you walk, take the road to Peggy's Cove for a mile or two. There are many great Golf Courses in the area for those that have a need to swing a Club.
