  • Wonderful Family Retreat

    "We stayed there with another couple in October, 2914 during the peak of foliage season. The house is isolated and has a spectacular water view. A kayak and canoe are provided for use in the pond behind the house. There are many walking trails on the property with lot of room for the kids and dogs to play outside. For those that want to travel, The Writer's Retreat is centrally located in Nova Scotia with easy access to Cape Breton, the Cabot Trail and the Ceildh Trail. It is also possible to do day trips to Halifax and PEI. Antigonish is just 20 minutes away. The house is nicely decorated and has 5 deck with great views. The upper level with the master bedroom, bathroom and a sitting area with a desk is especially attractive. The owner is extremely accommodating and friendly and has caregivers nearby if needed in her absence. Staying at The Writer's Retreat was a great decision. It provided a home away from home for a fabulous vacation!"

  • Great place to spend a vacation

    "We stayed for 10 nights at this wonderful home, the kids loved it the moment they stepped in. The house has a very cozy relaxig feel to it and the fresh ocean air makes a great place to escape the heat. The beach is really just 2mins to walk and is very clean and nice to spend some time. The lighthouse and the rocks provide a nice lookout point. The central location makes is great for easy excursions to Halifax, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove. We used the kayak rental from ECO twice, the backbay is very safe to paddle with 2 little ones. Unfortunately time flew by too fast and we would have liked to stay longer:-) Very good place to stay for a couple with or without kids and dogs. Our dogs loved the hikes along the coast and into the village."

  • great quiet location - cozy well appointed cottage.

    "If you're looking for a great little cottage in the heart of Chester, this is it. A short walk to the water, the kids can swim in the community pool, grab an ice cream and watch the sailboats rolling by. Perfectly maintained, there is a nice big backyard and a deck with bbq. This is a great house for a family to experience all that Chester has to offer."

  • Super location, Super Home!

    "We chose Sunrise at Sol Point for our family vacation after reviewing many different properties on Home & Away and other sites. The previous reviews were all extremely positive which brought it to our attention more readily. Well, it did not disappoint. Simply an amazing home with all amenities you would want for a vacation on the east coast. The four kayaks and life jackets were an added treat and well used during our 10 day stay. A five minute drive to Peggy's Cove, lots of little islands to kayak to and around, about 30 minute drive to downtown Halifax - all good. We barbecued and did most of our meals in the well equipped kitchen. The living room easily accommodated our five adults and two children and the four bedrooms are all roomy enough for comfort, especially the master bedroom with huge ensuite bathroom. We will be back for another east coast vacation and to Sunrise at Sol Point."
