Kemptback Cottage is located in Kemptville, Nova Scotia, Canada, on beautiful Kemptback Lake, also known as Crawley Lake. It is a beautiful, clear, rocky bottom lake, known for excellent bass fishing. Our cottage has a gorgeous sandy waterfront beach, protected by a small cove. We love spending time here, but unfortunately life gets busy, and we don't get the opportunity to spend as much time here, as we'd like . So we've decided to share this beautiful spot with others, and rent our cottage out for a few weeks out of the year.
It is located about a 40 minute drive from the town of Yarmouth, NS, on a private road. It is very quiet and serene, with only a few other cottages in the immediate vicinity. There is limited cell phone reception, which only adds to the peaceful
environment. You can watch the gorgeous sunset from the deck.
The cottage has four bedrooms, (twin bed; double bed; two twin beds; twin bunk beds) as well as a large loft area with an additional sleeping area, which includes two twins cots and a double size futon. There is a three piece bathroom, (shower only), laundry room with stackable washer/dryer, a kitchen/dining area with a propane stove, electric fridge/freezer, and microwave, and a living room with satellite television and dvd player. Out on the large deck, there is a barbeque and outdoor table and chairs, with steps down to a path leading to the waterfront. There is a canoe as well as various floaty toys and buckets and shovels included in the rental. Inside, there is an assortment of books, toys for younger children and a few games. Pots and pans, as well as cutlery and dishes are in the cupboards. There are towels available too. All you need to bring is your toothbrush!
This place was great. we had our friends and family over for a BBQ. The shoreline is nice and sandy. The amazing lake view with the sunset was so nice. The many bed were great for our guest to stay a night with us.the kids loved the game systems.The men like the boat, they went for a fish and explored a bit. We spent our wedding night here as well, At night it got chilly, so we lit a small fire in the fireplace and it was so cozy and romantic. There were cozy blankets to snuggle in. Wonderful added treat was a coffee tray with chocolate and fresh flowers. Overall, an amazing weekend, only downfall is that we wished we could have spent more time here!
Wonderful lake and comfortable house. I am not sure the deck is safe (support poles are off their footings), and was not impressed with dealing with mice maimed in a trap. There are issues with water pressure. The hostess was attentive and helpful. The 4-night minimum stay was not great.
Myself and eleven of my friends had a lovely time at this cabin over August long weekend. The cabin was well-stocked, spotless and comfortable. The lake was very warm, if a bit rocky. Bring water shoes! It's very isolated and peaceful.
Tamara was very communicative and accommodating. We felt very welcome even though I never met her in person.
Tip: If travelling from Halifax, I recommend going through the valley instead of down the south shore. The road from Shelburne to the cabin is in really rough shape, with potholes and frost heaves. A higher car or one not laden with people and gear would have been okay, but it was a little harrowing for us! The valley way isn't much longer (or maybe even not longer at all if you take your time dodging potholes) and the roads are in much better shape.
