Shelburne Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

Morning Mist Cottage and an adorable guest house on beautiful blue Lake Deception is located in Shelburne County on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.

This 62 acre sanctuary of water and woodland is a step back to simplicity and spiritual renewal. Our cottage is private, twelve feet from the lake that entices you to swim and canoe. Countless species of birds and frequenting beavers live within the lake and the forest of towering mature maple, oak and pine trees.

Owner/operator, Pauline Elizabeth, an educator/holistic practitioner invites you to rest awhile, connect with the earth and have fun as you swim, canoe, bike and hike on your perfectly secluded vacation for complete relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation.

Morning Mist Cottage is deluxe, spacious and made of pine with cathedral ceiling, skylights, and large glass-sliding patio doors that seem to bring the picturesque outdoors inside.

A striking stone and brick fireplace adds to the ambiance and is open to the living room, dining room and full kitchen. Two full four-piece baths and a new half bath in the loft, a breathless nine person outdoor spa, kind and queen-size beds and comfy furniture provide a country charm with all the amenities. New renovations this spring include wood floors in bedrooms and loft, new duvets,draperies, roofs and an awesome stone chimney

Whether you are a single person, group, couple or a family with children this gorgeous retreat will entertain and delight all.

Only twenty minutes away are pristine isolated white sand beaches heralding the sound and smell of salt water flowing with the tides, the River Hills Golf Club and historic town of Shelburne offering fine dining.

Sailboats and fishing boats carve their way through the waters of the third largest natural harbor in the world. Explore and discover the magic of this unique little town and but come back to the quiet of the forest and lake as you swim and canoe or relax in a lounger on the deck.

About Pauline Elizabeth

Right now I am living a good life. I moved to Nassau in the Bahamas 5 years ago to teach Music at St. John's College and stayed. Having four adult children and four new grand babies I am spending a bit more time in Nova Scotia. I have retrained as a therapist and am writing a book. Spending time in the outdoors, swimming in the ocean and listening to music are my passions.

Pauline Elizabeth purchased this cottage in 1977

Why Pauline Elizabeth chose Nova Scotia

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 and recreational activities makes for the best holiday ever.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow! Wonderful Spot! Although the weather was not on our side we had such a great experience. Lots of love and memories. It's obvious that Pauline and family have had many years themselves here. Very comfortable and warm feelings. Many thanks.

Only complaint-not enough time here.

To the new comers-explore every inch of the property-you will not be disappointed.
