A video of the home is on YouTube 'Innisfree Cottage Lake Midway':
When hiring your car, be sure to get cruise control for the long stretches of well maintained and extremely quiet roads. In the summer you will also appreciate air conditioning in your vehicle, as the temperatures can get well into the 80s.
Wildlife: At Innisfree cottage, you will find nature at its finest and most exciting. Nova Scotia is a wild and friendly place which can be enjoyed from the comfort of our well equipped and cozy country cottage home.
Don't forget to feed the local resident Chipmunks, Blue Jays, Squirrels and Hummingbirds. There is normally some bird food in the cottage and we provide a hummingbird feeder.
You are likely to see rabbits, pheasants, chipmunks and squirrels in the garden. In the woods at the back of the cottage, evidence of white tailed deer can be seen. American finches, robins and blue jays feed from the bird feeders and a brilliant red flash means the cardinal bird is around. Turkey vultures and, if you are lucky, a bald eagle sometimes ride the thermals overhead. In summer, the hummingbirds have a feast on the nectar from the touch-me-not flowers having followed the sun from Mexico arriving in May.
The cottage is used by the owners for their own vacations and is therefore equipped to a very high standard. You won't find old second hand pots and pans and mismatched cutlery as has been our experience at other properties over the years.
