About the owner: Kevin and Bea Pelley are the property owners and Bea grew up in Rocky Bay, just down the road. Kevin grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Bea and Kevin reside outside Halifax with their 2 sons.
Why the Owner Chose St. Peters: For years we vacationed in Rocky Bay starting with an RV and then a small cottage on a piece of land. When we decided to build our dream summer home, we were fortunate that a property with great beach front came up for sale.
Kevin grew up in Halifax and immediately fell in love with Rocky Bay. We spend our vacations and many weekends in Rocky Bay and love the things it has to offer. Beautiful scenery, the beach, the atlantic ocean, the fresh air, the calming sound of the waves and the peacefullness of the area.
The community is friendly and close knit and has events throughout the year. Walking and exploring on the beach or hiking or biking the trails, Rocky Bay has so much to offer and we absolutely love it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: You will never forget the smell of fresh ocean air and the sound of rolling waves when you go to sleep at night. Sitting at the campfire and star gazing while the ocean waves break in the background is something you will never forget and will never want to leave.
You wake up every day to a new experience as you see mother nature at its finest. Rocky Bay is truly a remarkable place that everyone should have the chance to visit.
