About the property

As featured in Saltscapes magazine Fall issue 2016

Great for family holiday or romantic getaway!!.

Located right in the heart of Peggy's Cove on the oceanfront. Great for a family get away or romantic holiday.

This sun drenched property includes the most spectacular views and sunsets imaginable.

The cottage blends old world charm, with all the modern conveniences. The 1650 sq foot cottage has been lovingly restored including the original floors and open beamed ceilings. Million dollar views from every window!

The cottage sleeps 5 in total. 2 in the king size bed in the master bedroom, one in the middle bedroom, and 2 in the queen bed in the DeGarthe room. This is named after our famous next door neighbour William DeGarthe, a Dutch artist who lived a lifetime in the village carving a dedication to the hard working lifestyle of the fisherman in the solid granite wall next door to the cottage.

If you are seeking solitude and some peace and quiet it's the right place to stay. This seaside paradise is where you want to be. .

Directly behind the cottage are ocean tidal pools perfect for a swim in the revitalizing Atlantic Ocean. Peggy's Cove Cottage is the ultimate in views, convenience, and a fantastic location.

We are a 5 minute drive from Ryers Lobster pound where you can buy fresh

lobsters and seafood for a great Maritime feast!!

The nearby Rhubarb restaurant has great reviews and fresh food to offer,HIGHLY recommend it !! A booking in advance is recommended!

A truly magical holiday experience awaits.

Our goal is for you to enjoy your stay with us and all that Nova Scotia has to offer!!

The place to stay in Peggy's Cove

  • 5 of 5

We just left after a week at the cottage and we can't wait to return! The house is just amazing! The renovations kept all of the charm but added the necessary modern amenities such as a dishwasher! The house is stocked with everything you need... full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans, cutlery, corkscrew, lobster cooking essentials, and picnic supplies.

We loved the wood burning fireplace and used it every night.

The back porch had amazing views of the town and we enjoyed our morning coffee and evening wine there daily.

It was nice to go out for the day to Halifax, or Lunenburg, or just driving the coast to visit the local gallery's and come home to this relaxing retreat.

The house is filled with wonderful art ( some by Claire herself!) , there is one picture you will never see because I begged Claire to let us us buy it! You can also find her art at Haggs Hill By the lighthouse.

If you are coming to this area you MUST stay here, you will not be sorry!

A Slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect place for a vacation or romantic getaway. It has been meticulously restored to give you all the atmosphere of a fisherman's cottage with every modern convenience you could need! The view is so spectacular you have to force yourself to get off the deck and go out!! Our hosts were so warmly gracious and attentive to any needs we may have had. You will not be disappointed...everything is as gorgeous as the pictures...really!! We have already planned our return to this cottage for next summer and can hardly wait.

Picturesque port

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage in Peggy's Cove did not disappoint! Quiet and conveniently located to all the spots in the cove. Felt like I was transported back in time but still had the conveniences of today. Claire was so friendly and helpful. Would recommend this spot without hesitation!

Our short week in Peggy's Cove celebrating our 50th anniversary was beyond all expectations. Claire and Paul's house was everything described and more. It was totally clean and comfortable making or stay even more enjoyable. There was not anything they have overlooked or forgotten. We really enjoyed the central location for day trips to Halifax, Lunenburg, whale watching and the tidal bore in Truro. Their recommendation to dine at the Rhubarb restaurant was a great help and one that was spot on.

Coming from Dallas, Texas, we really enjoyed the cool (not cold) weather! An evening cocktail or morning coffee on the front deck was such a joy!

Thanks to both of you...we'll be back.

The Jewel In The Crown of Peggy's Cove.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage, #6 Rocky Road, is a spacious and comfortable house that has been lovingly renovated to include a mix of modern appliances and utilities, and quaint facilities.

The kitchen is very well appointed with excellent fridge, stove, dishwasher, and water cooler, and very good quality pots, pans, crockery and flatware.

The living room furniture is very comfortable. So too, are the beds - but two of the three bedrooms would be better-served by heavier duty curtains that would shut out the summer sunlight at 05:00am. The sole bathroom seems, at first, very small but it contains all the necessities: bath/shower, wc and wash basin.

The view of Peggy's Cove from the front deck is breathtakingly beautiful and by itself worth the price of the rental! The spacious and secluded grounds are well maintained and add to the overall experience of being 'at home'.

We most certainly hope to return to Peggy's Cove Cottage.
