Perfect Cottage Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the door we knew we'd enjoy staying here. Met with the beautiful view out over the lake and the beachy feel of the cottage we knew we'd chosen well. 4 adults and 1 child stayed here for a week while we explored Halifax, and other areas of Nova Scotia. The tower was a neat experience for the 11yr old. The bedrooms were airy and light and had wonderful cool breezes off the lake that cooled the cottage down. Large sitting room area that looks out through large picture windows to the lake. The large deck was sunny and had an ample room for dining and barbequeing. The lower deck was brand new and was a great place to sit and look out over the lake. The cottage was within 10 minutes of multiple stores. Two bathrooms each with lovely deep bathtubs - the main floor one has lots of charm with the deep claw foot tub. This is located in a lovely quiet neighborhood and a very relaxing place to stay. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a lake retreat or wanting to explore Halifax and area.

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!
