  • A Perfect Vacation

    "A perfect place for a relaxing family vacation. The cabin is steps from a beautiful beach and has everything you could need. Located in a beautiful village where you're greeted with friendly smiles. It was the perfect ending to a busy summer schedule, providing priceless family time and relaxation!"

  • Four Weeks in Paradise

    "We spent one week at the cottage back in 2011 so when I had the chance to spend my sabbatical of 4 weeks there I jumped at the idea. It was the perfect place to spend an extended time away to relax, renew, and rejuvenate ourselves. We enjoyed waking up each morning and spending time on the porch drinking coffee while we watched the constant parade of seabirds going here and there. We saw new ones we did not know existed which as a family of auks (murres) with their little white chests as they would dive underneath the water searching for food. We saw other birds that are not seabirds also, such as two bald eagles and an osprey. We saw a seal out in the bay twice as he swam here and there. It was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. The cottage does not have television or the internet which was also great. For four weeks we never heard a negative news story about wars or strife or world problems. We listened to a station in French on the radio so that we heard a variety of music in both English and French but could not understand anything the announcers would say. Having a break from the media was great in that it allowed me to read 6 books while I was there also, something I need to do more often but do not seem to find the time while at home. We cooked in the well-supplied kitchen daily and got the hang of sorting out the trash for recycling, which is something that Nova Scotia leads Canada in and beats most of the US in doing. It was no problem, just something that we did since that is the way that people live in Nova Scotia. We got our seafood at the nearby Nautical Seafoods, just up the hill from the cottage and enjoyed scallops on a regular basis. We shopped the Saturday Market in Annapolis Royal each week and drove to the Wednesday Market in Kentville on three different Wednesdays. We looked around the area and took day trips here and there exploring the Acadian Coast and the Annapolis Valley. The farthest from the cottage we went was for a night away on Cape Breton Island where we attended a Ceilidh and had some fabulous chowder. Otherwise, we stayed within 100 kilometers of the cottage most of the time. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who wants peace and quiet and tranquility. It was just what we wanted in order to recharge our emotional batteries."

  • PK

    "My family came to visit from the west coast this October, and we were looking for a place to accommodate our large number of people - including three young children! This rental property was ideal. The house itself is beautiful. It was spacious and had everything we needed to enjoy the area and our visit, as well as ample room for the kids to play and the adults to relax! We especially appreciated the large number of rooms and the ensuite bathrooms - very convenient for a bigger group and made sleeping arrangements comfortable and easy. The owners were responsive to our emails and very accommodating during our stay. We had a lovely time and would recommend this property to anyone visiting the area. Thank you! P"

  • Fantastic and Relaxing

    "This old fisherman's home was the ideal setting for our trip to Nova Scotia. The four of us stayed six nights and wished we could have stayed two weeks. The home was Great and met all our expectations with no regrets. We visited Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Fort Anne. Our best afternoon was spent along the seashore between the home and Peggy's Cove. Awesome views. Would highly recommend the home and area for a great visit to the Nova Scotia. Tom and Donna, across the street were a wealth of information and made us Cajuns feel right at home. Hope to visit again in the future."
