About Carlo Weickert

We are Carlo and Becky Weickert. After 30 years of running our own businesses, we retired in 2010 to enjoy our two sons' families and especially our three granddaughters. We look forward to spending more time on our boat, travelling around the world and generally enjoying our 'Ocean Oasis'. We look forward to sharing 'Ocean Meadow Cottage', our local knowledge, experiences and love of N.S. with visitors be they from Canada, the USA, or other parts of the world. We welcome all!

Carlo Weickert purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Carlo Weickert chose Glen Margaret

Nova Scotia became our adopted home in 1990 after living in many parts of Canada.We love the Maritime life style and want to share it's beauty, friendly people and many diverse activities with as many people as possible. Ocean Meadow Cottage is ideally situated for exploring both rural and urban adventures. Nova Scotia is truly a hidden treasure just waiting for you to come and experience.

What makes this cottage unique

The peaceful beauty of our property is exceptional and yet you are close to many amenities and attractions. Wonderful for boaters, fishermen, whale watching and other outdoor activities as well as city and tourist venues. Halifax is filled with history, culture, attractions, great dining and beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the most incredible vacation experience! You thought of every little detail from beginning to end. Loved the wine, flowers, music and fireplace on arrival. The cottage is pristine and beautiful. Your blue binders of information and tours of N.S. and eateries was so comprehensive! This was the perfect holiday so of course we'll be back next Oct.!

A final thank you for the "Welcome Hug" - it was grand (you're a true Maritimer!) This place is amazing and you are the ultimate ambassadors of hospitality!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet and peaceful location. Owner provided much useful information about the area. Close to grocery store and attractions, but feels secluded and out of the way. Highly recommended.

Everything you needed was provided by our host...including detailed trip advisories for many Nova Scotia destinations. Would certainly recommend this cottage to everyone.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, knowledgeable hosts, who care about your vacation experience. The cottage is well appointed, the location gives good access to the South Coast and Halifax, which is exactly what we wanted.

The Cottage location is so peaceful and quiet, deer and Ringnecked pheasants on the lawn. We loved it there.

Perfect, plus!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a perfect location. All the comforts of home plus!

Hosts have spared no efforts to ensure their guests have a perfect vacation.

Beautifully decorated, with every convenience, new TV's with all the channels and Netflix. Great information and maps for all the touring you would need, even a GPS fully loaded with directions. Was one of the best vacations we have had, we were sad to leave.

A well furnished and equipped, clean and fresh cottage. Carlo (or someone) spent a lot of time on information folders which were very useful and appreciated as was the sat. nav. which helped greatly because we kept getting lost.

A peaceful, quiet and secluded setting which we loved but may not be to everyone's taste.

We regret not meeting Carlo because he was on holiday but he phoned a couple of times to ensure all was well.
