Charming house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and the bedrooms were generously sized and comfortable. The house had a lot of historic charm and we really enjoyed our stay. It was a bonus that there was a crib on the premises that our baby slept in so that we didn't have to bring our own.

One slight negative, depending on how you feel about privacy, is that it isn't clear from the listing that this rental isn't actually for a full house. The house is actually split into two "units" so that you'll likely have another family staying with you on the same property. This should be stated more clearly in the listing, as you share the porch, driveway, and a few walls with the other unit.

This is a terrific property--very comfortable and well equipped; great location; responsive owners.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids under 10, plus our small dog) had a terrific 2-week August vacation at Heron's Perch. The house is very comfortably furnished--comfy living room, very generously sized dining room, great well-equipped kitchen, and spacious comfortable bedrooms. Bathrooms were also great and modern. Location is perfect: close to Hirtle and Sand Dollar beaches; not far from Lunenburg and Bridgewater; gorgeous drives along the coast (LaHave Bakery a short drive and ferry ride away, Risser Beach/Provincial Park also nearby). Owners are responsive and friendly. No hesitation in recommending this property.
