Annapolis Royal cottage description

Quaintly Nova Scotian! A 1930's cedar-shake cottage, nestled in to the mountainside with a wide, close view of the Bay of Fundy!

The Bay of Fundy was one of Frommer's top global destinations and its tremendous tides have been referred to as ‘the heartbeat of the world’!
Nova Scotia is a Lonely Planet top pick and Annapolis Royal won the title of 'Cultureville' of the Maritimes. A short drive from the cottage will take you into the heart of this delightful town! Second place in this contest was Wolfville, just an hour's drive through the scenic Annapolis Valley and you're there!

Nature is big here in Nova Scotia! (Parkers Cove is no exception) You'll find mountains & valleys, oceans & lakes, bays & brooks, big skies & wide views, cliffs & caves, rock coasts, pebble shores and sandy beaches. The cottage offers a respite from the busy world...almost a step back in time. Without TV or internet to distract you, the noise of technology is replaced with birdsong, the soothing rhythm of waves, a breeze blowing through the trees and the babbling of the brook.

Watch our 'nature channel'! Gaze at the calming views of bobbing lobster boats on the Bay from a seat on the porch or reclining in the bed upstairs. Watch the seals watching you. And keep an eye out for porpoises and the occasional whale. Lots of sea birds and ducks as well as our resident eagle - a pair was spotted this year!

And then there are the crows....if they are not talking 'at' you, they are talking about you to their feathered friends. Be sure to count them! Do you know the poem?

One crow sorrow, two crows bliss,
Three crows a letter, four crows a kiss,
Five crows silver, six crows gold,
Seven crows a secret never to be told!

Walk the trails behind the cottage by following the red arrows which mark the path that runs along the brook to the 'bench of contemplation'. Even on a hot summer day, you can rest in the quiet coolness by the forest stream. Deer may make a morning appearance.
Red arrows also mark the short cut and the lowland path which runs above the rock garden. Not a challenging hike but a nice walk through the woods. We all know how good that is for the soul!
Walking sticks are leaning by the front door or can be found in the garage.

Feed your soul with all that is available in the area - the catch of the day, organic produce, local wines and our delicious spring water at the cottage. There are wonderful restaurants in the area and an incredible farmers market on Saturday where you can buy fish and scallops from the Fish Monger, French and German breads, pastries, jams, fresh veg all while you listen to live music! In season I can bring you fresh lobster every Thursday - just let me know a couple days in advance how many you’d like. You will find everything you need to cook and crack a succulent lobster in the kitchen. If that isn't appealing, the Nautical Seafoods at the Parker's Cove wharf offers fresh as well as cook-to-order lobsters.

The cottage is small but cosy ~
Inside the front door, you'll find hooks to hang your jacket, hat or bag. Below there is a built-in bench to perch on or disperse your load of shopping bags or shore finds. Shelves below the bench offer storage for your shoes or what ever you choose. You'll also find games such as Scrabble, Cribbage, Checkers, Backgammon and Cards shelved there.

In the relaxing room, feel free to rest your feet on the table as you slouch back in the comfortable couch and enjoy the view. Pillows and throws add to your repose. A great place to enjoy a impromptu nap.

The eat-in kitchen features the original cottage cupboards, full size refrigerator, an electric stove, a microwave, toaster, blender, mini-grill, coffee maker and an electric kettle. Dishes, glassware, silverware, cooking utensils, tea towels, pots and pans are all there for your use.
There is a storage room off the kitchen for your bulky stuff that leads to the back door and the herb garden.

First floor bedroom offers a double bed and a small closet under the stairs. The original wooden walls are painted white and the wooden floor is a nautical blue. View from the window is of the woods, very green and calm. Open it and enjoy fresh air. There is also a fan available.

Full bathroom that is just steps away from the downstairs bedroom features a shower with great pressure. A washer and dryer is there for your use (liquid detergent and dryer sheets are provided) or feel like a local and use the clothes line and let the sea breeze do the work. You'll find a laundry basket and clothes pins. Also a hair dryer and of course, lots of towels.

Upstairs, there is a bedroom with a double bed. A 1/2 bath is tucked under the eaves. Whitewashed wooden walls and a finished wooden floor make for a cozy space. Windows on all sides so views of water and woods plus great cross breezes. There is a small closet, a chest of drawers and shelves where you'll find books and cds. There is also a cd player and a clock radio. Rest your suitcases on the trunks for easier access. Also for your convenience, a hair dryer and a fan.

Out of doors, a front porch beckons. A 'shore road' bench made by my neighbour makes a comfortable perch. Guests have enjoyed coffee, wine, even meals here. Others have used the porch to meditate, do yoga, write and paint.

Shore access is granted by my neighbours. There is a map on the refrigerator where you can access the rocky shore. Take the bucket and do a bit of beach combing and see what you can find. You never know what washes up with the Fundy tides!

You'll find a friendly community along the road. Take a walk in either direction and enjoy the views. Don't be surprised if someone waves at you or stops to chat. You might get invited in for a coffee or a lobster dinner! The wildflowers that grow here are incredible. Pick a bunch for the cottage.

Bring art supplies, yoga mat, journal, camera, books, binoculars, hiking boots, golf clubs - you never know what you'll be inspired to do!

I live just down the road, 1.2 km - close at hand if you need anything...like warm coats to go whale watching or help cooking a lobster;) If you have a friendly dog that likes to play, we have a non-aggressive fun-loving dog who has a fenced yard for play-dates.

                  Peggy’s Picks for 2014

                  1. Cape Forchu Lighthouse, home of the BIG CHAIR. Drive along the ‘French Shore’, try the Friday night seafood dinners at Belliveau Cove market, check out St. Anne (the largest wooden church in North America), Smuggler’s Cove name for Rum-runners, Port Maitland for mile-high lemon meringue pie at Edna's, Mavillette Beach (incredibly long sand beach), Yarmouth (look for lighthouse signs for Cape Forchu but don't miss the fabulous old architecture in Yarmouth.

                  2. Oaklawn Zoo in Aylesford - a wonderful family run zoo that all ages will enjoy. While in the area, check out Wheatons, Berwick.

                  3. In Annapolis Royal, the Gardens, the Graveyard tour, the Tidal Power Plant tour, chocolates from Great Expectations and most of all, I recommend the Saturday morning market!

                  5. Digby Neck - climb Cape Shubel for panoramic views, beach combing at Sandy Cove Beach (great sea glass!), hike to the Balancing Rock, go whale watching and don't miss eating at Lavina’s.

                  6. Hike at Delaps Cove (waterfalls), Cape Split - a long hike (take a lunch) but you will never forget the view when you reach the end! Keji National Park - enjoy the day hiking and biking, rent canoes and kayaks.
