About Jennifer Wilkins
Although we're new to VRBO, we're not new to tourism. We ran a successful hunting and fishing lodge in Northern Ontario for 10 years, spending our Winters in beautiful Nova Scotia. After selling the lodge, the choice was clear - move to NS full time and share this incredible area with others! We've learned what travelers are looking for and have remodeled this large historic home to accommodate your needs.
Jennifer Wilkins purchased this House in 2018
Why Jennifer Wilkins chose Barrington
In search of a vacation rental investment, we purchased this home on Sherose Island in February 2018. We were very attracted to it's Gothic peaks, historic details, gorgeous view of the bay, and proximity to amenities. The house had good bones, but was full of junk and very outdated! We spent the entire Summer remodeling, adding the features we know travelers appreciate. We hope you fall in love with it like we did!

Spacious and Relaxing
This is one of the few properties we have rented that we truly didn't need to bring any extra supplies from home! The kitchen is stocked with dishes, pans, cutlery, and implements. The bathrooms have extra towels and toiletries. There were more thank enough blankets and pillows.
The property is relaxing, comfortable, spacious and has beautiful views. Our group of 8 had a fantastic weekend stay.
Huge old house in quiet location, overlooking bay
All sorts of space. Well equipped. Could easily just hang out here for a while. Not far from beaches, stores or quaint historic Barrington.
Perfect spot in South Nova Scotia
We wanted a centrally located house that could accommodate 6 people, including and elderly relative. This house was perfect!! Clean, beautiful views, quiet...we all loved it.
Everything was perfect
We spent 1 week at this house and it was absolutely perfect. We felt very welcomed. The house was spotless. Everything was as they said it would be. The properties owners thought of everything to make this a home-away-from-home. The front porch and its view and the fresh ocean air was magnificent ! Absolutely loved this part of Nova Scotia. Thank you so much for everything.
This house is absolutely lovely, and very well equipped. The owners were great to communicate with and we had a good time. Barrington is a small, friendly community with beautiful beaches. Having said that, there are limited activities for families with teenagers, and we found ourselves doing a fair bit of driving.
Summer get away
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful old house. Spacious,well decorated ,clean and supplied with everything we needed. The owner thought of everything, even pet supplies. My favourite place to sit was on the front porch. Would definitely go again.
