"Everything about this location is outstanding! The house itself is gorgeous, with incredible views. Some of the best sunsets we have seen anywhere. The area is also beautiful with beaches, lookouts, coves, and scenic drives. We didn't want to leave! While staying here we did the drive around the Cabot Trail which is a definite must do if you are in the area and perfect for a day trip. We stopped for lunch and at one store as well as a few of the scenic lookouts and were back in 10 hours. If we are ever lucky enough to travel back to this area I wouldn't hesitate to book Kelly's retreat again."

"We had a great week at this lovely house, which was perfecly situated for exploring the area, including Halifax to the north and the lovely fishing villages and beaches to the south (Lunenberg and Chester were our favourites). It was also ideal for more local walking opportunities (loved the trail from Prospect Cove) and in particular, popping to Peggy's Cove later in the evenings (5 minute drive away) when most of the other tourists had gone.
We loved the quiet location (could hear the waves lapping onto the rocks - how wonderful is that?!!) and the uniterrupted view straight onto Hacketts Cove was beautiful, especially the sunsets in the evening.
The house was well equipped to meet all our needs (travelling as a family) and our two girls loved the garden.
We would definiately recommend this property to family and friends!"

Wish we could have spent more time at Stoneybrook House
"A bunch of friends and I stayed at Stoneybrook House while we were in Chester for a wedding. Unfortunately, we only stayed for one night but we definitely could have stayed for much longer. It would be the perfect vacation house for a family or group of friends staying for a week in the South Shore. The stream running behind the house is quite picturesque as is the whole property."

"Enjoyed a wonderful getaway at Xanadu By The Sea. Cottage and scenery far surpassed our expectations. Cottage has everything you can possibly need and the ocean view is breathtaking.
Antigonish is a quaint town with unique shops and great places to eat.
Thank you Paul and Heidi for making our stay so awesome!"
