"We had a lovely stay at Harbour's Reach, using it as a home base while visiting our children at Dalhousie, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The house is extremely comfortable, very clean and thoughtfully appointed. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare meals, and Cheryl and Tony even brought the BBQ out of its winter storage for me. The view from all of the windows is wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed my morning coffee on the front deck watching the sunrise over the harbour. Another highlight was a walk to Chebucto Head lighthouse and then a hike back along the ocean from Duncan's Cove to Ketch Harbour. All of this while still being close to Halifax. I felt like I'd had a real holiday, was sad to leave, and I will absolutely stay here again. Many thanks to Cheryl and Tony for being gracious and attentive hosts."

"The cottage is absolutely beautiful and the pictures truly don't do it justice. We had our annual family weekend here and everyone was comfortable and we were never bored! Between beach combing, fishing, going into Arisaig for lobster, and ping pong in the basement, we had full days each day! You literally have your own personal ocean beach, it's amazing! Cozy inside and tons of space outside, you won't be disappointed. Debbie is more than helpful with anything you need and will answer any questions you have. A great weekend!!"

"We spent a week in this spacious home while we were visiting Halifax and attending our sons wedding. It comfortably housed all ten of us and was centrally located to many attractions and the wedding events. We were able to host the reception party and have a home away from our home for this special event. It was great to have all the comforts of home: washer and dryer, kitchen space, outdoor yard space. The only frustration we had during our stay was totally out of the owners control - construction around the area made it difficult to access the house but by now this will be complete. This is a large space that can accommodate a large group comfortable. I would definitely rent this house again if I was coming to the area."

"We were visiting Antigonish for a family reunion. Our group included siblings, spouses, in-laws and adult children for a total of 7 in our party. The Artist's Beach House was the perfect place for us. Close enough to town for reunion activities yet far enough away to be our own wonderful oasis away from it all. There was lots of space for all of us and the house was immaculate, well furnished and had an excellent very well equipped kitchen for those evenings when we chose to host other family members for dinner. Long warm nights on the verandahs capped off the warm summers days. Can't say enough good things about this property. We would highly recommend the Artist's Beach House to anyone."
