About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our special piece of Nova Scotia paradise! This post and beam home is located on a 2.3 acre oceanfront lot overlooking the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait. The community is called Dr's Brook and is a 15 minute drive from the town of Antigonish. The house has an unparalleled view of the ocean, P.E.I. across the straight, and gorgeous sunsets off the west deck.

The beach is only 200 feet away from the house where you can swim, snorkel, walk, look for fossils, collect snail shells or just relax and soak up the sun. From the deck you can watch eagles, hawks, blue herons, hummingbirds and loons fly by when you aren't busy laughing at the seals and whales as they frolic in the ocean on their way to their fishing grounds.

The beach is very quiet, as there are only 3 other cottages nearby. The house is ideal for families or couples looking for privacy and relaxation near the ocean. The new screened in sitting room is ideal for eating, reading, relaxing or napping!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Debbie, We surely did enjoy our stay and are hopeful we will be able to go back next year. The weather was great up until the night before we left.and the house was perfect. No one wanted to go home. My three year old granddaughter thinks we should just live there forever. Let me know when you put up your schedule for next summer.

Thanks again for sharing such a wonderful place.

Wow! What a place, view and spot!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days here in late September 2017. The weather was great and the space exceeded our expectations.

Lots of room for four and more. Large windows and deck to look out at the water which was a short walk away. We will be back next year!

The house was great and the view from the front deck was amazing. Would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.

Laid back hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We were at Piper's Path May 18-28, 2017. It is a very comfortable house right on the ocean. We awoke each morning to the sound of lobster boats working their traps just off the beach and it was fun to use the provided binoculars to see the lobster fisherman working. We saw several bald eagles and even a red fox from the deck and we enjoyed walking the rocky beach looking for treasures. We were very impressed by the people we met on our trip. Without exception, everyone was very friendly and concerned that we enjoyed our visit to Canada. We did a day trip to drive the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton that was very worthwhile, although a long 10 hour day. We were there before tourist season begins, so some activities weren't open yet, but we enjoyed our time in Nova Scotia and would certainly return to Piper's Path. In the nearby community of Arasaig, everyone we met knew the owners of Piper's Path and seemed to hold them in high regard. I give this vacation rental a big "thumbs up".

All that and a bag of chips!

  • 5 of 5

6 long time friends rendez-voused for our 20 year reunion. This place was perfect. lots of space including the open floor plan and deck to hang out together, separate area downstairs, lots of outdoor space and waves to wash away hangovers. It was a bit of a drive (20 minutes) into town but it was no big deal. All of us are thinking about bringing our families back in the future. Our weather was perfect but even with rain the place is big enough that you wouldn't have to worry about cabin fever. Debbie was very easy to deal with gave great directions, instructions, etc.
