  • Four Weeks in Paradise

    "We spent one week at the cottage back in 2011 so when I had the chance to spend my sabbatical of 4 weeks there I jumped at the idea. It was the perfect place to spend an extended time away to relax, renew, and rejuvenate ourselves. We enjoyed waking up each morning and spending time on the porch drinking coffee while we watched the constant parade of seabirds going here and there. We saw new ones we did not know existed which as a family of auks (murres) with their little white chests as they would dive underneath the water searching for food. We saw other birds that are not seabirds also, such as two bald eagles and an osprey. We saw a seal out in the bay twice as he swam here and there. It was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. The cottage does not have television or the internet which was also great. For four weeks we never heard a negative news story about wars or strife or world problems. We listened to a station in French on the radio so that we heard a variety of music in both English and French but could not understand anything the announcers would say. Having a break from the media was great in that it allowed me to read 6 books while I was there also, something I need to do more often but do not seem to find the time while at home. We cooked in the well-supplied kitchen daily and got the hang of sorting out the trash for recycling, which is something that Nova Scotia leads Canada in and beats most of the US in doing. It was no problem, just something that we did since that is the way that people live in Nova Scotia. We got our seafood at the nearby Nautical Seafoods, just up the hill from the cottage and enjoyed scallops on a regular basis. We shopped the Saturday Market in Annapolis Royal each week and drove to the Wednesday Market in Kentville on three different Wednesdays. We looked around the area and took day trips here and there exploring the Acadian Coast and the Annapolis Valley. The farthest from the cottage we went was for a night away on Cape Breton Island where we attended a Ceilidh and had some fabulous chowder. Otherwise, we stayed within 100 kilometers of the cottage most of the time. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who wants peace and quiet and tranquility. It was just what we wanted in order to recharge our emotional batteries."

  • Seaside Cottage

    "If you're looking for the perfect beach cottage..this is it. The beach is right across from the cottage and the water is warm and shallow..perfect for small kids. Lovely front porch to sit and listen to the surf and have a few drinks. It's close to the Cabot trail and to Mabou where the Rankin family has a lovely restaurant with live music. The owners wife left beach glass books on the table and now I'm hooked. Check out THE BUS..the hamburgers are fabulous. Kick back and unwind or shop in all the small seaside towns. The cottage has everything you need and the owner is so helpful and friendly. I wish this cottage was mine !!!"

  • 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."

  • Amazing property, amazing owners!!

    "From the moment we arrived at this property, we fell in love with it. The grounds and view to the water are amazing. Kay came out to greet us upon our arrival and gave us a detailed tour of the property. It is every bit as lovely and comfortable as the photos portray it to be. We immediately felt at home and knew we would have a great vacation. Rod even had our state flag hanging from our upper deck, talk about attention to detail!!. Our view from the upper and lower decks was beautiful and gave us a great opportunity to see the deer out in the yard both in the morning and in the evening. We were able to do the Cabot Trail in 1 day, however, at least 2 is recommended. My husband caught several mackerel and a striped bass right from the beach, so needless to say, he was in his glory. We enjoyed a couple of evening campfires down by the beach and enjoyed the company of our hosts, they are lovely people. This was our first trip to Nova Scotia but we will definitely be back, would love to explore other regions of this diverse province. Thank you Rod and Kay for opening Uncle Bob's to guests, you truly made it a vacation to remember."
