About the property

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.

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.

Beautiful cozy well appointed cottage on Bay of Fundy

  • 5 of 5

One of last cottages on the point, very private with a nice path for walking or biking along the Bay. The cottage and grounds were very nice, well equipped with everything you could need. Perfect location to get away from it all, peaceful tiny fishing village. Lavena's Catch Cafe on the island has best food of all restaurants we tried in NS and PEI. Went whale watching off the island by Zodiac with Ocean Explorations for some fantastic whale sightings. Was the perfect location to kick back, slow down and enjoy the beauty of Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy tides.

Great house in a beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three really enjoyed the cottage. It is in a beautiful spot. Comfortable beds, nice, well equipped kitchen and a beautiful garden. The house is so comfortable that jut hanging around reading or cooking is a great time. We did drive to balancing rock for a hike (beautiful) and took the ferry to Brier Island. We also hiked around Beautiful Cove. All in all it was a good visit. Oh and we bought scallops from DbK on Brier island for dinner with salad from the garden and fresh strawberries from a table down the street. Stop at the Sobeys or Atlantic superstore just off the hi way on the way. The convenience store near by has a few items, but not a lot if you are really cooking.
