Thoughtfully placed at the end of a private cove overlooking the Port Joli Bay, Emsik Beach House has a view that can only be described as "quintessentially Nova Scotian"! White sands, blue waters, outcroppings of granite boulders and pine trees that hug the shoreline make this one of the most the picturesque sites on the South Shore.
A Mi'kmaq word, Emsik literally means "blown along by the wind": a relaxed state of mind that is easily reached at the cottage. A vacation here creates a peaceful sense of drifting along with no particular place to go. It is difficult not to become absorbed by the rhythm of sea: the sound of waves and the surf breaking against the sand.
Perfect for a couple, small family, or group of friends, Emsik Beach House has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, seating area and three piece bathroom. A separate room with a queen size futon doubles as a den or an additional bedroom. Upstairs there is a master bedroom suite with a queen size bed, additional living space with plenty of comfortable chairs and couches and a private balcony that commands a fabulous view of the sheltered cove.
Outside a large front deck is nicely appointed with Adirondack chairs - the idea spot to relax, enjoy a book and a glass of wine or just hang out with a friend. There is a picnic area and a second (outside) shower handy for washing off the sand.
Emsik cottage is a perfect beach side retreat. Children can entertain themselves for hours along the sandy cove in front of Emsik Beach House. It is a safe place to swim and a wonderful area to sea kayak, scuba dive, hike, or sunbath in privacy. So, book today and look forward to spending a lazy afternoon sunbathing or beachcombing. Or, for the more adventurous stop in at the Rossignol Surf Shop and arrange for a kayak tour of the bay.
Situated at the end of a small sandy cove, Emsik Beach House overlooks the glorious white sandy beaches and sparkling blue waters of the gorgeous Port Joli Peninsular.
