Wonderful VisitGuest comment entered by owner
We had a wonderful vacation in Nova Scotia and really enjoyed our stay at your place in Antigonish. The kids loved having their own little space in the basement with the 3 beds. The view from the sitting area upstairs is gorgeous. We got to hike the local Fairmont ridge trail and also visit the beach at Pomquet. Antigonish is a wonderful town and we hope to be back again sometime.

Perfect for Family
Wow, what an excellent place! My parents and I stayed here while visiting family, this was the perfect location for my large family to gather. Lots of space with a great yard for the kids to play in. The views from the property are amazing, I spent most of my time sitting on the upstairs patio taking in the weather. Located a short distance to town, the house itself is quiet. Perfect for those of us escaping the city. Very well equipped, it truly was like moving into a home for the week. We will definitely be back next year!
