              Car: Necessary

              We are located in rural Pictou County sitting on 6+ acres of land overlooking a beautiful harbour (Little Harbour) and surrounded by various trees including apple, pear, cherry, plum and our own raspberry and blackberry patches. We are within walking distance of Blackpoint beach where you can do any kind of water sport and on any given day you could see eagles, osprey, rabbits, deer as well as various other wild life by looking out the window. We are only 10 to 15 minutes from the nearest town, New Glasgow, which has theatres, fitness centres, shopping mall, pretty much anything you would want or need. Melmerby beach, one of the finest in Nova Scotia is only 5 minutes away as are the Presbyterian and Catholic churches and the Nova Scotia Liquor store and gas bar. There are numerous restaurants, a museum, library, local festivals every week throughout the summer as well as many music events. Your might like to try tidal bore rafting on the Bay of Fundy which has the highest tides in the world and is only an hour away.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1989

              About the owner: We are both born and raised in Pictou County and currently are retired and living in Blackpoint. We like to spend time with our 10 grandchildren especially skiing with them and their parents when they have free time. We canoe, hike and enjoy our swimming pool in the summer as well as the local beaches.

              Why the Owner Chose Little Harbour:
              We fell in love with the area and all it has to offer. We can crosscountry ski from our front door in winter and walk to the beach in the summer. What's not to like?

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with the view and the potential of the house which we then renovated to include the upstairs bathroom, enlarge 2 of the bedrooms and open up the downstairs. We lived in this home for 24 years then decided to downsize to a smaller place and rent this home so others could get a little of the pleasure we enjoyed. There is a stone fireplace outside which a friend help us construct from the stones we gathered throughout Pictou County and the barbecues on this are delicious. There is a fire ring for nighttime enjoyment, making smores, roasting weiners and marshmallows, having singsongs, whatever your heart desires.
