                We stayed at this cottage from Aug 17-24 and from the moment we walked in, we felt right at home. The cottage was so cozy and welcoming and was incredibly well stocked. Being from the Halifax area originally (now living in Ontario), we wanted a place to call home for our summer vacation, especially since we were bringing our 6-month old and two dogs with us. Having our own space that we could invite friends and family to made it such a peaceful, stress-free holiday, and much easier to keep our son on his napping and bedtime schedules. The view is breathtaking. In fact, we captured some photos that we intend to blow up and hang in our home to remind us of our wonderful stay. Everything was better than described, and as the end of the week approached, we were very sad to pack up and leave. Thank you so much for making our vacation so memorable. It will be very hard to find other vacation homes that come close to comparing.

                What a beautiful cottage this is! We stayed one week in August and really enjoyed our stay. It is close to Halifax (30 minutes), but just far enough to feel disconnected from the rest of the world. The view of the St. Margarets Bay is incredible... even from inside the cottage! We swam almost everyday; the water was so warm (22 degrees). Our two dogs also really like the front beach and the many dog-friendly parks and hiking trails nearby. It was a perfect week :)

                We had an awesome stay at this location. It is soooo quiet and soooo beautiful there. We had numerous swims and lots of time on the little beach. Never even turned the TV on. The location is superb and close to many attractions like Peggy's Cove, shopping and dining. The cottage was very clean, in very good condition (recent extensive renovation) and very well equipped, plus the owner was very responsive throughout the whole process. Neighbours were very friendly, too. We've been talking a lot about going again next year.

                We absolutely loved this property. The pictures don't do it justice. Loved the location, the amazing windows and view. Most of all, this cottage just has the most comforting, welcoming feel. We had hot sun, rain and fog and each was beautiful. The ocean was surprisingly warm. We watched for crabs, shrimp, squid and jellyfish each morning. And my personal favorite memory was hot coffee on the porch in the mornings. The cottage is fully stocked. The mosquitoes get bad in the first part of the evening, but get better once it's dark. We loved the local feel of Hubbards market Saturday morning and our delicious NS berries and fresh scones from there. The neighbors were lovely as well. We'll definitely be back!

                We had a wonderful stay in July 2013. We were a family of six, with a dog and had plenty of room for everyone. The cottage is just perfect. You will want for nothing. The cottage is very clean and well stocked. The area is quiet and charming. We had a great time on the little beach. We were treated to some luminescent phytoplankton on the beach a couple of nights. This is something to see. There is a wonderful bakery just down the road that sells the best sugar pies and a large variety of sandwiches and prepared meals. You will have to go to Ryer's Retail (about 18 minutes away) for fresh lobster, this is a must. The grocery stores are about a 10 minute drive. The neighbours are friendly. We will definitely be going back.

                Our family of four stayed for 5 days at the end of August. The situation was perfect. There is a small beach in front of the cottage, and the view across the bay is lovely. There was a small gift basket waiting for us and the interior was bright and inviting, having been recently renovated. We found the rooms spacious, the beds pretty good, the expanse of windows let in abundant light and views. My daughter stayed at the cottage to study for an exam while we toured and found it so much better than being cooped up in a hotel room. She was able to walk or sit by the sea on breaks. We enjoyed sitting on the front deck and swimming off the small beach. The neighbours were friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it without reservation.

                The description is understated. I am worried about writing anything too good in fear this fabulous spot will become too discovered and we'll never be able to book again! We had two fabulous weeks here...a peace of heaven. Quiet, quaint, and home away from home! The cottage is immaculate with incredible touches like original artwork on the walls, ocean going antiques and collectibles. The pictures just don't do it justice. The beach and views are outstanding, the sounds of the waves lapping up to lull you to sleep, the breeze waving the white curtains over the stripped bedding...picture perfect. We swam, kayaked, saw the buskers, toured the fantastic villages all up and down this spectacular coast. Great farmers market in Hubbards, great organic grocery store...peace and quiet and wonderful memories made this summer. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven.

                My wife, sister and I spent a week at this lovely cottage. It is perfectly located for either day trips to Halifax or trips to the charming towns of Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenberg and elsewhere on the coast or inland. All of the amenities are provided for and the hosts were always available if needed. It was better than described , immaculate and charming. The location by the beach is ideal for BBQ'ing ,relaxing on the porch and watching the beautiful sunsets over St Margaret's Bay. We can't recommend this place more highly.
