About Pauline Elizabeth Grace
Right now I am transitioning back to Canada having spent 9 years in the Bahamas and teaching music education for a portion of this time. Having four adult children and seven new grandchildren I am spending more time in Nova Scotia these days. Being in the outdoors, swimming in the ocean and listening to music are my passions.
Pauline Elizabeth Grace purchased this Cottage in 1977
Why Pauline Elizabeth Grace chose Shelburne
My former husband and I were married on the land and spent summers at our cottage with our four children. In 1998 I created Morning Mist Cottage as a necessity to maintain and continue to upgrade the property. 'Coming home to your heart' is indeed an opportunity for relaxation and spiritual renew. It is beautiful in the spring, summer and fall.
What makes this Cottage unique
I have maintained the rustic appeal with all new amenities. I was years without a television or Internet. I now have both. Our cedar sauna, wood burning fireplace, new propane fireplace, outdoor fire pit, new 10 x 10 swimming raft, new floating dock; the list is endless. With grandchildren in my life I have made an adventure of the forest with new Geo Dome and swings and a couple of large trees that were brought down that allow them to climb trees and use as balance beams.

We had such a great weekend! The cottage was clean and we had everything we needed there. The lake was beautiful and for this time of year was nice to sit on the lower deck and enjoy or look out at it with a fire going inside. The sauna was also a great way to relax. This was the perfect spot and just what we needed. The owner Pauline was available for any questions we had. We would definitely go back for another stay!
Wonderful Family Thanksgiving weekend
Everything about the cottage was wonderful and exactly as described in the information outlined. Pauline was lovely to reach out during our stay to check in on us and if we needed anything.
I would highly recommend the cottage and will definitely look to go back during a period of the summer when the weather is warmer, overall it was a fantastic experience.
Paradise on Earth!
We spent four nights here, and it is easily the nicest cottage we’ve ever stayed at. Total privacy, lake front cottage. Cozy, well appointed, and comes with sauna! Can’t recommend it enough.
Thank you so much for the lovely comments. So happy for you that you found Morning Mist Cottage. We love it too! Our amenities and our privacy, lake and forest make it a rare find. Warm Regards, Pauline
A Moment of Serenity
The first morning that I stayed at the cottage I found myself sipping a cup of coffee on the front porch, gazing out over the lake. The water perfectly mirrored the sky, and the air smelled of the pine forest. It was one of the most profound ways I've ever started a day.
My family lives all over, so we decided to pick a place for a family get together. The cottage was perfect and Pauline has done an amazing job! Throughout our time there, my siblings would look around and with a big smile say "think place is amazing".
Thanks again to Pauline for the use of the cottage and we all can't wait to come back!
Easily accommodates eight people very comfortably
We enjoyed all the amenities offered at this wonderful property… Very homey and serene
Beautiful lakefront setting lots of seating area indoor and outdoor fireplaces and all the modern conveniences . I would definitely consider this place for another vacation .
Dear Russel and family,
I can't thank you enough for all the "work" you did at Morning Mist Cottage. You certainly were not idle and the garage has never looked better. If only I had the kind of expertise you have demonstrated at Morning Mist Cottage. Thank you so much.
