White Point cottage description

OCEAN SURF COTTAGE is a slice of oceanfront paradise - a romantic seaside getaway in the unspoilt community of Summerville Centre overlooking Port Mouton Bay. To the south-east are the open Atlantic and Port Mouton Island. A few minutes walk to the west lies the mile-long sandy beach of Summerville Provincial Park and the delectable Quarterdeck Grill seafood restaurant. To the south, across the bay, historic lighthouses, fishing boats and more sandy beaches await. If you are looking for the sights and sounds of the ocean right at your door, without giving up 'the comforts of home' this premium destination may well be the best on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.


Within Walking Distance: Start your day on the deck overlooking the waves. It spans the full width of the house with 350 sq feet fully enclosed, insulated and heated for year round use. Facing south west, it gets lots of sun even in winter. Retractable electrically operated awnings together with the latest in mini-split air-conditioning technology keep the house cool and provide welcome shade during the hotter days of summer.
After breakfast the sandy mile-long beach of Summerville Provincial Park is a six minute walk away. Here, aside from having a leisurely stroll on the sand, you may rent a kayak or surfboard then enjoy one of the 'Taste of Nova Scotia' featured restaurants - the popular Quarterdeck Grill.
At the far end of the beach, the Broad River presents a hiking opportunity: it is crossed by a trestle bridge of the abandoned Halifax to Yarmouth railway, which is now maintained as a trail through rugged, forested countryside.
If you enjoy clambering over rocks, that is also a great way to explore the immediate shoreline on which the house is located.

Within a Fifteen Minute Drive: Head south down Hwy 103 through Port Mouton to one of Nova Scotia's finest beaches: Carter's Beach. With a parking area for all of fifteen cars (and rarely full), it is a series of three crescent shaped beaches with offshore islands reminiscent of the Caribbean (minus the palm trees of course). If you like deserted, this is it, though it has become a favorite stopover for sailboats and the occasional tall ship.
Head east 5 minutes along the Lighthouse route and you'll find White Point Golf Club.
Continue to the Town of Liverpool, one of the oldest towns in the Province. Noted for its colorful maritime history, it is a treasure trove of historic homes, many of which date back to when captains of industry and of the sea vied for the most impressive homes. One of them is now a fascinating museum of local history.

Within a Forty-five Minute Drive: To the south (a twenty-minute drive) is the wild rocky coastline and surrounding natural splendour of the Seaside Adjunct of Kejimkujik National Preserve and its seal colonies. A 'must sea'.
In the opposite direction, the Town of Bridgewater sits on the LaHave River. There are wonderful scenic drives on both sides of the river down to the sea, from where you can follow the coast by road. Have lunch at the LaHave Bakery where they bake their own breads and pastries and continue on to the LaHave Islands, Crescent Beach and Petite Riviere.
Just beyond Bridgewater are quaint Mahone Bay and Unesco World Heritage sight, Lunenburg. The latter is home to the Bluenose a beautiful tall ship in port for daily excursions.

                      JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM QUARTERDECK GRILL

                      'The oceanside view of surf and sand is delicious ... the food amazing.' Dine inside or outside on the Grill's all-weather covered deck. Located on spectacular Summerville Beach, a mile long stretch of white sand, Quarterdeck Grill is open from Mother's Day to Thanksgiving. As for the food, let your palate decide. Try sumptuous fresh lobster tails stuffed with scallops and shrimp or their specialty “Planked Atlantic Salmon”, prepared over an open firepit. The Quarterdeck has a reputation as the Sandy South Shore’s finest for fresh seafood, great steaks, and tempting desserts, plus a cellar full of wines!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Ocean Surf Cottage is owned by a semi-retired couple who moved to Nova Scotia from Ontario after careers in the business, education and civil service fields. We are now enjoying life in an unhurried, tranquil part of the world that is very close to nature.

                      Why the Owner Chose White Point:
                      We were on vacation in Nova Scotia and just happened upon this oceanfront property which was on the market. It was only after buying it that we discovered its wonderful surroundings - miles of empty and near empty beaches, hiking trails, and the ever-changing ocean right on the doorstep. Not to mention endless interesting drives on twisty roads to scenic area attractions.
