  • 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!"

  • Great Launching Point for Southern Nova Scotia

    "We very much enjoyed this beautifully maintained and decorated home for our three week stay in Nova Scotia. It was well located for day trips to Halifax, Southern Shore, Eastern Shore and up into Annapolis Valley; and of course being so convenient to Peggy's Cove meant many evenings watching sunsets and walking the rocky coast. The house owners were extremely gracious and made the accommodations that we needed to make the trip work. Their responses usually arrived in just a matter of hours. The house was an excellent home away from home with all kinds of amenities for days inside."

  • A Perfect Couple's Get-Away

    "My husband and I were looking for a lovely get-away to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and we found it in Bear River, Nova Scotia. The Bear River Winery was fantastic. It was easy to find, convenient to the highway and full of charm. Our host and hostess were very warm and generous. They gave us a private tour, a bottle of wine, and made us feel welcome to explore the vineyard, which includes a secluded cabin by the river, perfect for watching the tide rise and fall and the sun set. The accommodations include a microwave, refrigerator and a table with a view if you choose to eat in. The village is two minutes down the road where Myrtle and Rosie's will take good care of you and serve up a first class breakfast. Bear River is a tidal village so you can experience the extremes of the Bay of Fundy tides. Digby is a few minutes away with plenty of shopping and places to dine. We loved our stay and plan to return."

  • Beautiful location to stop and visit

    "We had a wonderful time during our visit to Neil's Harbour. The cottage was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for a relaxed stay. With three large bedrooms and extra sofa beds in the living room, there was plenty of room for our family. The private deck was nice for a quiet morning coffee or just a place to take a break with a book. The owners, Greg and Jackie, live right next door and were helpful pointing out all the best things to see during our stay. Neil's Harbour is a beautiful place to stop over in Cape Breton and we would highly recommend staying at this cottage."
