  • Gathering of Friends

    "First-time visitors to Nova Scotia, we arrived a la reunion mode, staying at the property in the company of old friends who have Canadian roots and visiting family. Our arrival was in the afternoon, a splendid, serene Sunday, showing off exquisitely the tended gardens, a fish and duck pond, matched by owner's expansive hospitality and a sunset to match our relaxed mood. The wide outside deck, scenic lighting, central fire pit promising the owner's lobster boil if we so chose (we did - it was uniquely delicious, complimented by the host couple's presence, and much local lore). There is much more to tell about our Halifax-area stay, but judging by the full bookings for Summer, 2015, this property's on the map to stay. We recommend you do too!"

  • Serenity by the Sea

    "The first impression....Pretty, light filled home beautifully appointed with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furnishings...But, it is the view that draws you. Nothing short of gorgeous..sitting high above the cove, surrounded by forest, a few sailboats moored nearby, the water glass-like calm. The effect? Instant serenity. My family and I spent a week at Deep Cove. I appreciated the owner, Janet's obvious fine taste in furnishings but also the fact that the house was immaculate! Good linens, comfortable beds, clean and above average (marble!) bathrooms. A vase of fresh flowers and candles too! My husband, who is the real cook in the family said the kitchen was the best he had seen in a vacation home and we have been renting for twenty years! Very well stocked with good quality dishes, cutlery, knives and pots and pans, all of which made our dinners a pleasure to prepare. The expansive screened in porch is the real treasure here. We used it to sit in the sun and savour morning coffee and at night, candlelit, with a good bottle of wine spent hours enjoying the air and just chatting. This is a very restful place. And although you do have to drive to other spots such as the town of Chester for supplies, it is a mere 15 minute trip. Bayswater, a lovely sandy beach is just twenty minutes away. And the wonderful towns of Lunenburg (World heritage site...wear your walking shoes for the hills!, Home of the famed Bluenose sailboat) and Mahone Bay, even Halifax are less than an hour away. Janet is also a pleasure to deal with; kind enough to give us information that only a local would know. We truly hope to return one day. Thanks to you Janet for sharing your special place."

  • L'ecole Rouge

    "We had a great stay at l'ecole rouge. Every day we awoke to the most amazing views. We had great fun watching the fishermen and the birds on the ocean. The property is clean and well maintained. We had 6 adults stay. There was a lot of room for everyone and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The owner was very easy to reach and answered all of questions."

  • 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."
