  • Home away from home in Antigonish

    "We found the perfect spot for family reunion at the Artist's Beach House. The house and setting reminded us of home with a great porch overlooking the bay on beautiful grounds that were private and even remote, yet only 10 minutes from Antigonish. The house was clean and well kept - so comfortable whether dining together, relaxing or enjoying cocktails in the sun room or on the deck. The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable and there were lots of activities on the grounds as well as kayaking on the bay. The location was well situated for daytrips exploring the coast and Cape Breton Island. Tiiu, the owner, was a gracious hostess - welcoming, friendly and very helpful in suggesting things to do and paces to eat. We felt like we made a friend and we certainly made ourselves at home at our new friend's home."

  • A Welcome Retreat

    "My wife and kids and I moved to Nova Scotia from British Columbia, and chose Shirley's home for a month while we searched for permanent housing in the Halifax area. Her home was always a very refreshing, peaceful and relaxing place to come back to everyday after our housing search. Our lovely host respected our privacy while also showing herself to be interested in us and our kids, and was very welcoming towards our family overall. She was very helpful with providing information regarding various details of the region, and even went out of her way to make some special and unique accommodations for us while we were staying in the suite. We were sorry to leave Shirley's place, and would happily return for another visit. We found Shirley herself to be very gracious and hospitable, and also quite thoughtful about humanity as a whole."

  • Can't say enough good things about this place!

    "This is a beautiful, spacious cottage with an amazing view. Peaceful, practical, and comfortable. It had everything we needed/wanted and nothing that we didn't. Close to the fishing village of Cheticamp and Cape Breton Highlands National Park. John (owner) was a great resource. WiFi worked great. We want to go back!"

  • A Magical House in a Gorgeous Setting

    "The photos do not do this house justice. It is wonderfully designed to be practical, comfortable, and yet architecturally stunning. No matter where you sit or stand or whether you look up or down the house itself has beautiful lines and and fascinating colors. The use of color and the various woods and stonework used throughout is beautifully done and will send your spirits soaring. Bill is not only an engineer, but an artist. And that's just the house itself. Wait until you experience the views, the serenity, and your escape from the trials and tribulations of every day life. but if you must, there's internet and Halifax is only about 30 minutes away. But be sure to go the other way and experience the beauty of the lighthouse route including Peggy's Cove, Indian Harbour (be sure to stop at Rhubarb for some seafood chowder or mussels), St. Margaret's bay and on to Mahone Bay and Lunesburg. And enjoy your day but come back to this magical house for sunset on the deck. We ate dinner there every night as well and it appears Bill is also a chef as he has a great kitchen with every implement and spice you can think of. And others have mentioned it but we will too...Bill is a great guy period and so wonderful to work with. Go...it's perfect!"
