Property description

This newly restored family cottage is bright and cozy, and situated on an oceanfront property overlooking St. Margaret’s Bay. You will feel a sense of privacy in this “home away from home” which is tucked away amidst mature trees on over one acre of land. Yet, you are still within easy driving distance to amenities, beautiful beaches, Halifax and the charming seaside towns that Nova Scotia is famous for.

The main floor of this cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, an open dining area overlooking the water (with seating for 6), a comfortable living room, a full bathroom and a bedroom with a queen sized bed. You will love the sunroom which has the most amazing view over the bay and with comfortable chairs to relax in, you might not want to leave!

Upstairs are two more bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and one with a double bed. There is also another bathroom with a shower stall.

This cottage is perfect for a family or a couple looking for a peaceful retreat or a place to kick back, relax and enjoy the view. You can swim from this property and at low tide there is a small sandy beach area. Or drive 10 minutes down the road to Cleveland or Queensland Beach – two of this area’s most popular beaches.
