A great place for a couple to spend a relaxing, quiet week on the coast.
Why Meagan chose Prospect
Prospect Village is simply magical. We had lived in the Village for several years and knew that we never wanted to leave. We jumped at the chance to buy this 150 year old Fisherman's Cape home and then proceeded to bring it back to life. We restored it's original charm with an architectural flair and updated it with modern, eco-friendly conveniences. Living in Prospect is like living in a wildlife park - with the ocean just steps from the home, you can sit back with your tea and watch wildlife in their natural enviroment. If you want to get a bit closer to the action - there are several coastal & in-land hikes
What makes this House unique
This home gives a rare glimpse into the past - when you first arrive in the Village, you will feel like you have stepped back in time as many of the homes have mantianed their original designs. Nature is all around you - bird lovers will enjoy spotting Eagles, Herons, Willets, rare shore birds and coastal ducks to name a few. In 2012 Marshwind was featured as a key location in the Hallmark movie 'Christmas with Holly', using shots from both the inside and outside of our home. Many movies have been shot in our beautiful village over the years.

We had a wonderful stay at Marshwinds. Loved the house, the view, the village and the wonderful tips from the owners. It was so quiet and peaceful, but only a short drive to Halifax and peggy’s Cove.
Our whole family - two adults, two teens - agree that this is one of the top 3 cottage/vacation rentals we have ever stayed at. Prospect is visually stunning, the hiking is awesome, the weather ever-changing....and to be able to hike out the front door across visually stunning rocky outcroppings to open ocean, and kayak out the back door in the relative calm waters of the marsh....fantastic. And the cottage itself is perfectly laid out - a great division of space for a family with 2 teens - cozy rooms for sharing, and space to spread out. Very well equipped. We will be back!!
Lovely place to vacation
Beautiful updated spacious vacation property! We loved our stay. The house has all the amenities and the property with the cove view was breathtaking. Saw some of the most wonderful sunrises!! Was perfect for some quiet and serene downtime. Meagan was great in answering our questions on where to dine and purchase seafood, etc, and was accommodating with our scheduling constraints. Thanks so much! We will definitely be back!
Truly one of the best spots we’ve ever rented (and we VRBO a lot)
I can’t even begin to say enough about our experience with this property. Scenic. Peaceful. A balm for the soul. Nothing describes it adequately.
The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Also very well equipped with everything you’d need. Some places we’ve rented have had the minimal but this place has plenty. Plenty of pans, dishes, small appliances, towels and other supplies needed to live like you’re home while playing like you’re on vacation.
The community is a quaint and stunning fishing village with neighbors that are as sweet and friendly as can be...not intrusive at all but always quick to smile and greet you as you walk down the lane and happy to stop and chat or point out favorite local places of interest. Truly a place to breathe out stress and breathe in peace.
Not only is the house itself lovely and the place it’s situated a feast for the eyes, but the central location can not be beat. From this home you can traverse the southern coast of Nova Scotia with ease, with the big city advantages and the rural beauty being equally accessible. Halifax is a wonderful culinary experience with so many eateries that it would take a year to exhaust them all. But DO NOT MISS a wonderful little place called “The French Fix” on the corner of Prince and Argyle streets in Halifax. They serve the most delicious macarons and baked goods and we were delighted to find out AFTER we had been there that it was owned by one of our lovely “neighbors” in the village.
There is a beautiful hike just minutes from the doorstep of this property that takes you to some of the most stunning views of the ocean. And the cove in the backyard of this home is different every day with the sun, the tide and the weather changing the beauty of it at every turn. We enjoyed kayaking at high tide and seeing the wildlife from the deck and every window of the home.
To say we would return to this spot is a no brainer and we hope to get back again. It was well worth the two full days of driving it took to get there from our home in the U.S. Thank you to the homeowners for sharing your slice of heaven with this family!
Another wonderful week at Marshwind
This is our second stay and once again it exceeded our expectations. The house is so well equipped and well care for, we really feel at home. And we do love this part of Nova Scotia- so much to do and see, even when the weather does not cooperate, it is a beautiful place to be. We never seem to have enough time to do all the things we plan. Meagan and Scott are wonderful hosts- there for whatever you need. We love this place and will surely be back again.
Marshwind is the perfect spot for a respite. The cottage is charming, the sunrises over the water
breathtaking, and the hikes stunning. This was our second stay there... all the way from Seattle, Washington. That says it all! Thank you, Meagan, for all your lovely touches!
