Total relaxation with a great view and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our regular 2 week vacation home! The views, lake and location make this the perfect summer respite. We have lots of family in the area and kitchen and outdoor space are perfect for entertaining. And you can't beat the views at any time of the day!

Amazing House on a Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

Look no further-- your search for the perfect rental in Nova Scotia ends here! This house is gorgeous, spacious, private, and offers amazing views on a perfectly peaceful lake. We had great weather and were able to view the Perseid meteor showers from the deck each night while listening to the call of lake's resident loons echo in the distance. We recommend a day trip to Peggy's Cove and Halifax, but you will really just want to spend most of your time relaxing here. Claire was a pleasure to work with we hope to return next year!

The owners Paul and Claire were so welcoming and thought of almost every need my family may have needed. I so recommend you make this property a must stay, it is removed from civilization but with all of it's amenities.

Stayed mid July 2016

  • 4 of 5

My husband and 2 kids stayed here for 9 days and enjoyed every day. The views are great and the swimming was very enjoyable. The owners Claire and Paul were very hospitable and make you feel right at home. Very close to downtown Halifax, shopping and many attractions. Would love to go back for another family vacation. Thanks Claire for a great time.
