  • beautiful spot, relaxing getaway

    "we stayed at starfish hill for two weeks in June 2014. amazing things about the property: - pet friendly - we brought our two dogs with us and they had a blast in the ocean and running around the property. the cottage is FAR from a main road so we weren't worried about them at all. - very few bugs - i really hate mosquitos and we found that being by the river/ocean really helped with this. there was often a lovely breeze keeping things nice and fresh. - close to "civilization" - being at this cottage you feel away from it all, but bridgewater is a 15 minute drive away for groceries, drug stores, some restaurants. traveling with a small baby, it was great to be so close to amenities if we needed them. - the cottage itself obviously! - the furnishings are beautiful, the view is even better. we loved making fires in the evenings and sitting out on the deck for breakfasts. - the setup - this cottage stocks almost everything you need! lots of towels, clean sheets on the bed, lots of dishes and glasses, full size fridge and great having a washer and dryer. i loved hanging my clothes on the line to dry, everything was so fresh and crisp! - no TV, but great WIFI - i loved not having a tv. we had an iPad and when my husband HAD to watch baseball games, he got a great connection through the wifi and could watch anything on his iPad. - the owners and caretakers - all fabulous! we had a small problem with the deck umbrella and a gentleman came the very next day and fixed it. great communication. - anyone with kids - they have a great setup for kids. there was a pack n play waiting for me, there are fun bunk beds, and they have a ton of great toys in the shed for older kids to play with. we are already talking about our next visit to starfish hill!"

  • Sun Rise & Big Sky Viewing Extraordinaire

    "This is an incredible location overlooking the entrance to Pictou Harbor & the Northumberland Straits. Its private & quite with only the sound of surf & breeze. The house is well equiped, very tidy & comfortable. Sun rise & big sky viewing are spectacular. The Owners are exceptionally hospitable and a pleasure."

  • Picturesque village, crisp breeze, breathtaking sunset

    "My wife and I arrived to the sleepy little village of Prospect early in the morning to find our "home" for the week cozy and impeccably kept. The cottage is nestled just on the edge of the bay with a glorious view of the water. Whether you are looking to see the sights or relax by the fireplace on the chilly nights, Marshwind offers a little bit of something for everyone. Plenty of places nearby to purchase local food for those who like to cook, and a variety of restaurants in nearby Halifax, for those who prefer to leave the dishes to someone else. The owner was most helpful from start to finish and provided insider tips for our stay. Without a doubt, we plan to re-visit Marshwind."

  • Perfect for special family gathering!

    "Seacrest Tower was the perfect place for ten of us to gather to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. They were especially pleased with the main floor master bedroom with a door to the bathroom and access to the deck. And the kids loved the "bunk room" with the cool loft and the awesome tower! The screened-in dining area was an added bonus, and we enjoyed the lovely living room with its gorgeous stone fireplace. Even with all that, and the pleasant walk to the spectacular beach, a highlight was the ping pong table in the basement. We had a blast! Very comfortable and well-appointed, and so nice for my parents to be able to bring their dog. We hope to be able to return with friends."
