Liscomb House Rental Photos and Description

Modern style, private and protected beach

Gegogan Beach House is located at the end of a private access road on a 25 acres property next to a sheltered bay with breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean and direct access to a private sandy beach. The beach slopes gently into the bay, making it perfect for swimming for smaller children. The canoes belonging to the house invites you to a tour of the bay and to swim with the seals.

The house is individually furnished and offers excellent views onto the Atlantic Ocean from any room.

Sun, clean air, nature, water. Nice and warm people, the relaxed Canadian Way of Life and the pleasant climate, with sunshine like the south of France but with beautiful cool northern air: Here you can find peace and relaxation from your work. Enjoy your days on the large deck overlooking Gegogan Harbour.

Peaceful & Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We left this wonderful home rested and renewed after a five night stay. The home provided everything needed. A short drive to Sherbrooke Village for groceries and we were set. Sunny mornings were spent on the deck enjoying the magnificent waterfront location and views. Our gracious hosts provided DVDs, a selection of good books and wifi. Two double kayaks were on the beach for our use. If we find ourselves in this area again, this home would be our #1 choice for lodging.

Luxury cottage combined with charming rural countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Gegogan Beach House was excellent. The house is beautiful both inside and outside, with modern amenities, a great deck with BBQ, outdoor shower and the beach literally at our doorstep. The area is very quiet and secluded and there is a good sandy beach. The waters are cold being the Ocean, but the kids just hopped in anyway! The nearby Sherbrooke village with its historical town and villagers contributed to our experience of Nova Scotia. I would recommend this for anyone seeking to stay in five-star accommodations combined with rustic woodlands and the ocean as a backdrop!

Urlaubsdomizil mit hervorragender Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Unser Aufenthalt in dem Haus im Frühjahr 2011 war von großer Entspannung durch die hervorragende Ausstattung sowie sehr schöne Lage geprägt.

Die Angaben des Inserats wurden eher übertroffen - das Haus ist besonders für Menschen, die auch im Urlaub Wert auf eine klare und wertige Einrichtung legen ein Genuss.

Der Zustand war sehr sauber und gepflegt, die Informationen durch den Vermieter korrekt und ausführlich. Die großzügig geschnittenen Räumlichkeiten begeisterten uns. Die 2 Bäder (einzig die Spiegel fehlten noch), die gut ausgestattete Küche, das geschmackvolle Geschirr, die Designer-Möbel, der großzügige Hauswirtschaftsraum mit Waschmaschine und Trockner und Außen das riesige Terrassendeck - alles war perfekt. Das Grundstück mit seinem schönen Blick auf den Atlantik sowie Strand und Wassersportmöglichkeiten bietet einen hohen Erholungswert.

Die beiden Kanus am Haus sind ideal um die Küsten der Umgebung zu erkunden.

Das Grundstück ist schon gut arrondiert - es braucht allerdings noch ein wenig Zeit um den neu angelegten Charakter zu verlieren. Aber auch hier ist der Stil der Vermieter bereits angenehm sichtbar.

Die Lage in Little Liscomb ist sehr ruhig, aber nicht zu abgeschieden. Die Erreichbarkeit von Halifax aus ist gut zu realisieren, die Versorgungsmöglichkeiten in der näheren Umgebung sind problemlos zu erreichen.

Es finden sich Restaurants wie z. B. die Liscomb Lodge ind er Nähe, dort auch die Möglichkeiten für Tennis, Schwimmbad und Golf. Die Städte Antigonish und New Glasgow sind für kanadische Verhältnisse relativ gut und schnell zu erreichen. Aber auch die sehr quirlige Universitäts-und Hafentadt Halifax ist gut angebunden - ein Tages- oder Zweitagestripp dorthin lohnt sich durchaus, die dortigen Restaurants, Clubs und Galerien sind immer wieder ein Erlebnis. Naturräumlich bieten die nahen Blue Montains sowie eine Fahrt Richtung Cape Breton viele Möglichkeiten die Natur zu entdecken.

Durch den relativ kurzen, angenehmen Flug eignet sich das Haus auch für einen kürzeren Urlaub - wir werden diese Möglichkeit gerne wieder dort nutzen. Auf jeden Fall werden wird das Haus Freunden weiterempfehlen.

Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore is largely unaffected by tourism and a real insider's tip: Picturesque villages along the coast road, lobster fishing, sandy beaches and beautiful bays.

Little Liscomb is about 15 minutes from Sherbrooke, the tourist center of the Eastern Shore and about 2h from Halifax. In Sherbrooke which is well know for its museum village you will find all kinds of shops, bank, gas station etc.

The well-known Liscomb Lodge with indoor pool, sauna, gym and tennis court can be reached in just 10 minutes by car and is also open to outside guests. The restaurant offers regional and international cuisine.

From Little Liscomb you can have excellent day trips to many other regions and tourist attractions of Nova Scotia such as Cape Breton.
