"We had a great stay at l'ecole rouge. Every day we awoke to the most amazing views. We had great fun watching the fishermen and the birds on the ocean. The property is clean and well maintained. We had 6 adults stay. There was a lot of room for everyone and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The owner was very easy to reach and answered all of questions."

"We stayed for 4 days at the shore house and it was one of the best experiences we had. Very clean, cozy house. In a second the feeling you arrived home. The best spot you can imagine, drinking your morning coffee sitting in the chair overlooking the bay. You don't need more than that. But there is plenty more. Eat lobster at the shore club is a must. We dropped by at the beaches around, like queensland, bayswater beach.
When going to peggy's cove, drop by at 'White Sails Bakery & Deli' along the road, in Tantallon. great food with a great outside terrace to sit and look.
Lunenburg is a nice city to visit.
All in all a great stay, perfect house and great environment."

"I rented this property for 3 days as a change from my normal hotel stay while traveling. What a delight!! Upon my arrival, I was greeted with a semi - personalized document (they greeted my dog and left her a treat) outlining everything I possibly needed to know about the house and property.
The house is huge, beautiful and well decorated. The house is decorated with such precise beautiful detail. Honestly- like a storybook. What an interesting house! What an interesting property! The property is set on a quiet river with many quaint and beatific properties. There is a row boat and canoe available for guests to use.
Mahone bay is probably 5 minutes away by car. Bridge water is about 20-25 minutes away.
I would recommend this house for anybody who wants a quiet, relaxed getaway. The only regret I had was not being able to stay longer."

"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!"
