Located on Overcove Road, Brier View Cottage is steps from the ocean. The property sits on 10 acres of land and has 300 feet of waterfront. It has a beautiful view of Grand Passage, Brier Island and Peter's Island, which has a functioning lighthouse. The sunsets are spectacular all year long and the area is renowned for some of the highest tides in the world.
The property has many gardens, both vegetable and flower, and there is always something spectacular in bloom. Visitors are encouraged to help themselves to the vegetable gardens, pick bouquets of flowers, and enjoy the sitting areas in the gardens.
There are many hiking trails that are accessible from the home, the closest being Dartmouth Point which is a 120 acre park where seals and other wildlife can be frequently sighted. This trail is a 3-minute walk from the house and is situated on the tip of the island and has spectacular views of St. Mary's Bay and the surrounding areas.
The house is newly renovated and has 3 bedrooms plus den, 1 1/2 baths and can accommodate up to 8 people. A well equipped kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, but for people who prefer to dine out, Lavena's Catch cafe is a short distance away which has delicious seasonal seafood and homemade desserts.
