Guestbook comments from the owner

*What a wonderful place to stay. The house was great, wonderful view. Six of us made this home base and went site seeing every day. The weather was wonderful and Sandy who greeted us was fun and such a bubbly delightful person.

What fun we had in your charming home. The location could not be better. We really enjoyed seeing some of the local sites and eating in the yummy restaurants in town. We especially enjoyed watching the life in the harbor change several times a day and the sunrises. The weather was great and everyone so friendly. Thank you for making your home available.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I both really enjoyed our visit to Digby and our stay in this house. We didn't need such a big space for only two of us but since it is pet friendly we went ahead and booked it and are glad we did. The location is perfect, close to downtown restaurants and stores, while within easy driving distance for exploring other towns and villages. The only minor complaint we had was that all amenities listed weren't available: BBQ is old and unusable, cable is minimal, movies were there but no player, etc. But these were minor issues and we were kept busy and might not have used them anyway. The front verandah is perfect for evening cocktails and relaxing without the distraction of television or telephones. There is WIFI if you need the internet and bring your own device. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone who has pets (there is a park right across the street) or a large group of people.

Best deal in the valley

  • 5 of 5

This property is hardly a cottage. It is a large three floor six bedroom home. Having said that,my wife and I found it to be very comfortable. The huge master bedroom with large ensuite was great, we just closed off doors to other rooms to save energy costs to the owners.The location is great with easy walking to great seafood either in the resturants or from the wharf for home cooking.

We would never had stayed in such a large house for the two of us but for the price we could not go wrong to have all the ammenites of home.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I knew the lady "Derry Wilson" who use to own this house. She was my neighbour at the age of 5 and i sort of adopted her as a grandma when we first moved to Digby. I played in this house all day everyday and have fond memories. When Derry passed, her house was not in very good shape, the top 2 floors were shut off and drywall was falling off the walls. It broke my heart.... I've since then grown up and now live in Toronto. I had the pleasure to stay at this establishment in 2006 and was very surprised with the renovations. The new owners managed to keep the character of Derry's house, but made such a wonderful transformation... I was also so very happy to see they kept the back staircase, which was always my favorite place in the house.

It is a very beautiful establishment and I am looking forward to staying there once again soon.. You have all the comforts of your own home. Downtown is just a minute walk up the street, the views from the front of the house are breath taking and it is an excellent price low and high season... This is the place to stay if you're in Digby, you won't be sorry.

Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful Home !

  • 4 of 5

This is not a "cottage" but a beautiful home away from home. It has a mix of modern furnishings plus lovely antique pieces and everything else that is needed to provide comfortable living. The only drawback is closest washroom to first floor is upstairs - may be a problem for some. Digby harbour, wharf, convenience stores, shops, restaurants all within a couple of minutes walking. And the people were wonderful ! It was exciting to watch the tides go in and out every day. We took some very nice day trips to areas not far away to see lighthouses and beaches. Property Manager, Sandra, was so helpful and efficient. Many thanks to the property Owners for sharing this great place ! We would definitely stay here again.
