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!!

A truly magical holiday experience awaits.

Absolutely beautiful!

We have been to Nova Scotia before and love the Peggy's Cove area. We love the beautiful scenery right outside the cottage. It was very convenient for us to walk to the Sou'wester and have breakfast and lunch/dinner. Loved walking all over the granite boulders and watching the ocean. A big plus for us was the Super moon! So bright! We will definitely stay again next time we travel to Nova Scotia and will recommend it to our family and friends.

Listing was as advertised. Inside and out the cottage was well maintained and clean. Amazing views from almost every window. We have recommended Peggys Cove Cottage to a number of friends interested in going out East in the near future. Next time out East we would rent again.

The gem of Peggys Cove

If the earthly paradise ever existed, it must have been there...

If you seek living a wonderful experience by the ocean, don't look any further, you've juste found it.

Everything was just perfect, the Cottage, the sight, the site, the poeples, the local food and of course, the ocean...

We felt like we were literally living in a postcard!

And the owners are just fantastic, very communicative and helpful.

We really enjoyed each and every seconds of our stay.

Thanks for sharing with us your wonderfull piece of paradise!

We really hope to return someday!

Delightful Cottage in a Delightful Place

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Words and photos can't describe the beauty of Peggy's Cove and the unique serenity of staying at this little cottage. Overall it was a good value and a nice spot for our four-night stay in Nova Scotia. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and although they were not in the area, a neighbor checked in with us and offered his assistance on their behalf as well.

Notes on the cottage:

- The area southwest of Halifax along the coast (I believe it's called South Shore or something similar) stands out for its beautiful design and aesthetics, and this cottage is no exception. It's a lovely place.

- Walking distance from everything in Peggy's Cove, which is a bigger deal than it sounds based on my observations of the traffic and parking issues during our stay

- If you are over 5'8" or so be aware that you will need to duck a lot to avoid hitting your head in doorways and low ceilings...not really a detraction, just something to keep in mind

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeremy for your lovely review!! We so appreciate you taking the time! The bedroom doorways upstairs are low because the house is 150 years old!!! People were not as tall as us 20th century mortals!!!! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again one day!!! Best wishes!!!
