The place to stay in Halifay area
The place to stay in Halifay area
It is a wonderful clean cottage in a calm residential area. Everything we needed was there: comforable beds, great cooking utensils, bbq pit, and the best of all: the two chairs privately located in the lake. Shopping near by, and it was a good start for our excursions to Halifax, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove and so forth. It was a great stay and we enjoyed it very much. If we would ever come back to this area, this is the place to stay!

Owner response: Thanks so much for your kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed The Loons Nest cottage. Come again, Terry & Donna
The pictures don't do justice to this beautiful warm and cozy cottage. It was an oasis for me. When we arrived late in the evening, it was dark, it was raining and I was exhausted from a long flight from Edmonton, Alberta. The moment we turned on the lights, I was blown-away by the beauty, small touches by the owners and obvious loving care this cottage has had over the the years. If you're looking for an excellent getaway, close to the city and peaceful, this place is for you! I'll hopefully be back next summer!

Amazing!! Lakeside Cottage
Amazing!! Lakeside Cottage
This cottage is perfect, even more cozy yet spacious, the pictures depict it accurately except for the pleasant surprise you will have upon arriving - it is better! We travelled as a family of 4 with two children to attend a family reunion (I am a Maritimer) and explore the area with the kids. The Loon's Nest's stunning property gave us a home away from home. The layout allowed privacy and it was so nice to have laundry right in the cottage. We hosted many family gatherings and everyone enjoyed the huge deck, fire pit and dock. Lots of extras are provided such as the canoe, lifejackets, etc. The cottage is stocked fully, there was not a dish pan or utensil we found ourselves wishing we had. The owners are wonderful, extremely responsive and helpful, there were even fresh flowers waiting for us. Our family who lives locally all want to rent this now too - just for a perfect getaway in your own town. I can't say enough good things about this property - do not hesitate, snag it if you are thinking of it. Everything is close, from pizza and groceries to adventures and sightseeing in Halifax and surrounding areas. We had a wonderful run in a park 10minutes from the cottage and I ran around the beautiful Springfield lake numerous times, excellent and pretty loop! We will be planning our next Maritime holiday around ensuring we get to stay here again!

My husband and I stayed here in June with our 3 year old and the cottage could not have been more perfect. Inside it was very spacious with a nice living room, full dining room, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a good sized kitchen. We loved that the master had a king bed. What was most amazing though was the property itself. It is right on the lake with an awesome dock. There is also a fire pit and great outdoor seating areas. My 3 year old loved fishing and caught 3 fish! The setting was so peaceful, it was truly perfect. We were only 5 minutes into Sackville where there was every store you could need, and we were within 20 minutes of Halifax. Also 2 minutes down the road was a kids playground which was great for our daughter. We will definitely be back again to this cottage as it was so perfect. The owners were also great, they lived 2 minutes up the road and brought us anything we needed.

Loved This Cottage!
Loved This Cottage!
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful, quaint cottage for 6 nights this past July. The photos depicted it perfectly. It was wonderful being on a beautiful, peaceful lake and able to drive anytime into the city for sightseeing and restaurants in Halifax (it really is only 20 mins away). The grounds were immaculate and the cottage was beautifully decorated. We loved visiting Lunenbourg and Peggy's Cove which was a short drive from Sackville. If you're interested in visiting Halifax I would highly recommend staying at this cottage rather than a hotel in the city - you get the best of both worlds!

All the best from our beloved loons on Springfield Lake. The Loons Nest NS

Why the Owner Chose Halifax:
This is a city cottage nestled on Springfield Lake. Enjoy the waters edge, swimming, and the view of an island, and wildlife. The cottage is located in the city limits but has a very private feel.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Halifax waterfront is only 20 minutes away. Great for business travelers who want to relax too or tourists that just want to be near the city. Golf courses are close by and metro transit buses if you want to avoid downtown parking issues. Full kitchen, gas barbeque for those who like to cook their own meals.
