About the property

This beach house sits atop a cliff next to Lawrencetown Beach, one of the best surfing beaches in Canada. The house is very private set 1 mile back from the main road. The house includes a dog pen for your pet, internet connection, a flat screen TV in the livingroom wood stove fireplace, and panoramic views of the ocean. Only 30 minutes from Halifax where you can enjoy all the attractions of city including tours of the harbour, whale watching and a ride on the Harbour Hopper that takes you around Halifax and then out into the Harbour. Next to the house is the Canada Trail for walking or cycling or cross country skiing. There are several rental places where you can rent surf boards or kayaks or go horseback riding. Beautiful French Acadian villages along the ocean make for great scenic drives. Many artists have walk in studios along the coast and there are many great beaches including Conrad Beach, Martinique Beach and Clam Harbour Beach.

About Beth Newell

I am 60 years old but feel like twenty especially living near the ocean. I was born on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy where you can see the highest tides in the world. I grew up in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario where I studied dance at York University and eventually received my Masters in Counselling Psychology. I have been a Counselling Therapist here in Nova Scotia since 2001 when I returned to the ocean I love. My husband was a police officer with the Dartmouth Police for 33 years. He is now retired and looks after a disabled brother and everyone else in the family. We live about 8 km from the cottage.

Beth Newell purchased this house in 2003

Why Beth Newell chose Nova Scotia

You will know when you arrive. It is a little gem on the Atlantic Ocean. Very cozy with lots of handmade art and an ever-changing panoramic view of the ocean from the two large front windows. Everything you need to make great meals and lots of walking trails in every direction. Many of my guests have returned several times because there is no place like it.

What makes this house unique

Out in the country and not far from the city of Halifax. Watch surfers or surf yourself all year round. Many beautiful beaches, Lawrencetown Beach 10 minutes on the trail away and others from 8 minutes and up. This is a very central location to use as a base to tour Nova Scotia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an incredibly beautiful space you have. Thanks for sharing.We spent so much time just listening and looking at the ocean-no better way to fall asleep!

Beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my dad on a surf trip and was blown away at the beauty of this property. The house has everything you could need and more and is situated on an amazing bluff. The view every time you look out over the deck was breathtaking. There are hiking paths directly outside of the house for brief explorations. There are perfect surf spots every way you look as well. Simply put, this place far exceeded all of our expectations and we will hopefully be booking it again next year!

perfect seaside cottage

  • 5 of 5

this cottage is perfect. It is neat and clean, with fantastic views of the ocean from indoors and out. Beth has thought of everything to make the visit relaxing and easy to enjoy your time away. Short drive to beach's and Halifax, as well as other attractions. Every evening was spent on the porch watching the sunset over the water. Will return as soon as possible to see more of Nova Scotia. My friend who went along told me if I come back I have to rent this place because any other place will be a let down. That is how perfect Beth's cottage is.

Peaceful seaside haven

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, stunning views, charming comfortable cosy cottage. Very clean and well maintained, description and photos very accurate. Great customer service, Beth and Chris very friendly and helpful. would highly recommend you visit this little treasure. Was wonderful to watch the sun setting through the picture windows by the log fire.

Close to Halifax, very central to discover all the delights of wonderful Nova Scotia.

Can't wait to go back.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this rental property. It has amazing views, it's close to trails, and it's within easy driving distance to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and other tourist locations. The cottage is also very clean and tidy and well organized. Beth and Chris have thought of everything. This cottage would be perfect for any time of the year. We will definitely be back!

Lawrencetown is a beach community with the best surfing in Canada all year round. The village is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Halifax where there are historic attractions, shopping,restaurants and theatre. My home has a panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean and the lights of the Halifax harbour can be seen at night. The house is next to the Canada Trail a marvelous walking and cycling trail that winds around the oceanside. My house has a dog pen for your pet. The house is set up on a cliff and is very private with the closest neigbours over 1/2 mile away.September is a great month to visit here as the weather is still beautiful and the beaches are deserted.
