About Matthias MacLellan

I am a carpenter and a young man from the area, I rebuilt this house with help from my father in 2012. I have been around the world and the rugged, pristine coastline of Nova Scotias South Shore is a truly special place. Summer rentals allow me to pay the mortgage and I am happy to share my slice of paradise.

Matthias MacLellan purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Matthias MacLellan chose Nova Scotia

I choose to buy this property because of the spectacular location and having the skillset and energy to turn it into something beautiful. I am a wooden boat owner and sailing enthusiast and hope to still be in this house as an old man.

Peaceful shoreline-perfect cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay, We enjoyed the cottage and the view. Morning coffee on the deck, bird watching, quiet evenings and star gazing.

Great proximity to run into the city and all the quaint towns and beauty of the South shore. The cottage was clean and had a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed using the canoe and my boys had good luck fishing at the public wharf in fox point about a kilometer down the road.

Matt was a great host, attentive and accomodating.

Charming

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful location! It was so easy to explore the south shore and still relax in comfort when we returned. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening drinks on the deck watching the wildlife and sailboats. Very peaceful

An awesome retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage and would return! We have 3 small kids and they loved playing on the rocks, (so much space to explore when the tide is out) as well as enjoying the canoe and kayak.. (we brought our own kid life jackets as there wasn't enough at the cottage... lots of adult life jackets)!.. the water was warmer than the beach across the bay as well as any other beach we went to so that was awesome. There was a lot of seeweed but that didn't deter my kids

The cottage itself is an older style with lots of charm and it fit all of our basic needs. We could see the work Matt has put into his home while keeping that cottage feel. Matt was very responsive to our inquiries before, during and after our stay. If you are looking for a low key cottage with lots of charm and water access this is definitely the place!
