Quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the view of the meadow, walking to the beach and relaxing without too much technology.

Loved staying in the beautiful Livingston Cove!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the serenity and peaceful surroundings at Livingston Cove. We felt right at home with all the conveniences at our fingertips. We could play all day (Antigonish, for the Highland games) and enjoy an evening walk to the docks, after cooking up a healthy dinner in the fully-equipped kitchen. The home was clean and tidy, warm and inviting! The owner was fantastic with offering suggestions and fun options to tour and explore. Overall a great experience.

Peaceful location, partial ocean view, lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was lovely. Very comfortable for 6 people. Host was very available and helpful. The BBQ on the deck was not working, and she came right over, and when it couldn't be fixed, replaced it the next morning. The placement of fresh flowers was very nice.

We enjoyed discovering the surrounding areas on the Cape, as opposed to the immediate beach down the road- more of a fishing cove- but made for a great evening or morning walk.

Suggestions: a table on the back deck, and perhaps an umbrella. Once the weather cleared, we enjoyed so much sitting out back. The surroundings were so beautiful: kept thinking a deer or moose would appear out of the woods.
