WOW!! STUNNING UPDATED COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved this cottage - it was updated, and immaculately clean throughout! The fridge and cupboards were even stocked

with condiments, coffee, tea, etc. The beds were very comfy and there was lots of space for all 4 of us. The deck is where we spent tons of time - what a view! We saw so many hummingbirds and other beautiful birds. We spent Canada Day down the block with the town and it was lovely - a quaint parade, big Canada Day cake, a live band and even a jumpy castle for the kids. This is a 5-star cabin and the owners have thought of everything - I couldn't have asked for anything more. We cannot wait to return!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage last week and were amazed with the attention to cleanliness and decoration in this cottage. The pictures of the view do not do it justice at all. Both upper and lower decks have fantastic views and there are hummingbird, eagle and herons flying around all day. Extremely peaceful and comfortable. A short walk down to the beach where our children would explore the rocks for crab, starfish etc. I would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for a peaceful stay at a location that is close to all the amenities they would need.

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5

This was the best accommodations we have ever had. There was not one thing missing, Angie thought of everything. The view from the beach house was out of this world. I am a small town girl and that was what really topped this location. There were so many quaint towns up and down the coast line. The bonus was the "Scottish Rampart Lion Pub" was steps away and had awesome dinner specials every night, after all we were on vacation.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great quiet getaway weekend. The house is situated above the water on a beautiful bluff with an amazing view overlooking Maple Bay. The house was perfect for my wife and two little dogs. We walked on the beach every morning with the dogs and ate dinner on the deck overlooking that bay at night.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing and quiet vacation.
