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 Halifax

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!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Location! Location! Location!

The sea is literally at your doorstop and constantly enchanting the eye from every spot on this property. Our goal was to be as close to the sea as possible, and we got what we came for. The house is quaint, charming, rustic and leaves you feeling as though you have been there before, comfortable, like home. everything you need is there. The wood stove was excellent. The kitchen, though small, is perfectly adequate.

Having the trail right there is exceptional. The place is also well set up for dogs.

We honestly cannot wait to go back!

Pure Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, well equipped cottage. The LOCATION was the star of the show!

Private, not isolated. Comfortable and cosy with a great wood stove. Decorated casually with many personal touches and lots of interesting artwork. Beautiful Atlantic View Trail steps away for walking/hiking. And, oh, the OCEAN! An absolutely spectacular view. We had the opportunity to meet Beth, the owner of this gorgeous property and she was lovely to deal with. Can’t wait to visit again, park myself on the deck and breathe in that fresh, salty ocean air! We loved every moment!

Beyond beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This tidy cottage is packed with charm and all the basic amenities anyone would ever need for a seaside visit. Everything was clean and in order, it was lovely to meet Beth when she dropped by, and the beach and sea were beautiful beyond description. We will dream of the day that we return for another visit. Beth, we both thank you so very much for sharing this space with beachside wanderers!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most relaxing vacation my wife and I have enjoyed. From the beginning Beth was very patient and extremely helpful. The home itself was great. The view of the ocean and the sunsets were absolutely beautiful! The fireplace and the use of the wood provided at the home were extras that my wife and I enjoyed. It was wonderful to come back to the home each afternoon and know we could have a fire. I would highly recommend this home and give it a 5 star rating!!!!

Beautiful view and charming decor. I loved the view and sound of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage for "getting away from it all". Great for pets as well. Even a pet run for them to run loose. Very relaxing and Beth stopped by to make sure we were pleased.

Great little cottage, very relaxing with great view of the ocean and sunset and sunrise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful quaint little Maritime cottage on a cliff above the Atlantic with acces to the ocean below. The Atlantic Trail runs through the property which gives access to kilometers (many) of hiking, running and cycling. For us with an active dog it was ideal. We didn't know when we booked but is a hub of surfing (Lawrencetown Beach). The trail runs through many huge tidal flats. Well equipped kitchen, and tastefully decorated with dance them art. Ocean breezes and sunsets were very enjoyable onthe deck with a glass of Merlot and cranberry goat cheese.

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.
