Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We have lived in the Maritimes all our lives and love being close to the water wether it is on the lake or the ocean. Nova Scotia has so many beautiful landscapes to enjoy. We enjoy traveling and have used VRBO for all our accomadation arrangements.

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.
