About Nicholas

This is a family cottage.

Nicholas purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Nicholas chose St. Margaret's Bay

My family has enjoyed this property since the 1960's. It is located on pristine & unspoiled St Margarets Bay which provides a fabulous venue for water sports of all types. Beautiful western exposure and sunsets are the hall mark of this property. My family uses this cottage for family gatherings and enjoys the quaint character of this former fishing and farming community. The property is within easy driving distance to walking and biking trails, championship golf courses, shopping museums and many historic and picturesque villages and towns

What makes this cottage unique

Sunsets, beach, seabreeze, tranquility and natural beauty .

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this cottage. The views of the water are incredible and the property is located close to shopping, Halifax, Peggy's Cove and anywhere else you want to go. My husband and I, son, daughter-in-law, grandson and dog had a wonderful time here. The place is very clean and well equipped. We saw lots of deer! We will definitely plan to rent this spot again.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a more charming place on the ocean in a very convenient location close to Halifax and Peggy's Cove! We were able to relax while helping our daughter move into Dalhousie University. The gift basket left for us was an unexpected treat, we were able to eat and refresh before heading out for groceries (only 10 minute drive from the cottage). We enjoyed meeting the friendly neighbours and having campfires on the beach. The highlights were the wildlife and quiet nights listening to the ocean waves and watching the sunsets. The bonus was the White Sails Bakery down the road with plenty of gluten free treats and Montreal smoked meat sandwiches. We will definitely be planning a trip back!

Our Perfect Nova Scotia Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 amazing weeks in July/Aug of 2016. Wonderful spacious cottage. A great jumping off point for Cape Breton, Bay of Fundy etc. The friendly neighbours made our stay even more enjoyable! Lots of beverage beach time with the perfect weather this year. We lucked out! Many thanks to Nick, our gracious and accommodating host.

Quiet Cove; Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely stay! We arrived with our sons very late on the first night, after taking the ferry to Yarmouth from Portland. We were so pleased to find a welcome basket with wine, bread and cheese for the adults and goodies for our young boys too. The house was perfectly clean and ready for us to move right in, including towels, linens and other basic necessities. It only got better once the sun came up and we looked out on our tranquil cove, which was even more wonderful at sunset. The location was perfect for day trips around Nova Scotia from the Bay of Fundy to Lunenburg and Halifax. And having Peggy's Cove just down the road was really a cherry on top of the whole vacation. We look forward to returning one day and hope we can stay here again. Thank you to our great and gracious hosts.

Little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved our stay at this wonderful cottage. There was plenty of room for everyone and, like so many other reviews have stated, the view is absolutely incredible. We enjoyed having campfires on our own private beach, eating on the deck while taking in the view, and of course, the sound of the waves as the tide came in. So peaceful and relaxing. We found the location to be very handy to everywhere we wanted to go - Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, fabulous sandy beaches, kayaking - to name a few. Our family made many wonderful memories that week, and the cottage was the perfect place to do that!!

The Perfect Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home (I know it's a cliché but it applies) and with that view we never wanted to leave. We went out for lunch at the White Sails Bakery & Deli (fantastic food and view) a few times, but always ordered out because we just had to get back to the cottage to experience eating it on the porch. Nick and Jennifer, the owners, were attentive (the gift basket was a nice surprise) and the neighbors are great too. We look forward to going back.
