About The Owner

Your host, Cheryl and Tony grew up in nearby communities along this rugged shoreline. Cheryl was from Bald Rock a 25 minute walk from Harbour’s Reach. Tony grew up in Bear Cove a 5 minute drive closer to the city.

We live only 10 minutes away in Herring Cove but definitely don’t have the water views that Harbour’s Reach offers.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Nova Scotia

Tony has wanted to buy a rental for quite some time but I was hesitant. When this property came available it didn’t take any convincing, so we embarked on a new adventure.

What makes this house unique

Having coffee on the deck and looking out at the beautiful view.

Clean and quaint in Ketch Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well decorated. Loved the down stairs and two baths. Wish there was more room in the bedroom with the queen bed so I didn't worry about hitting my head when I walked around the bed. Loved the front porch and view on the harbor and Cheryl and Tony were very nice to meet us and show us around when we first arrived. A lovely experience!

Cute, cozy cottage with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Harbour's Reach this summer. Cheryl and Tony were very welcoming to us upon our arrival. The cottage was tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed for our stay. We loved sitting out on the new deck that faced the harbour...there was nothing more relaxing after a busy day exploring Halifax and other tourist destinations. There is a beautiful beach a short drive away and a community dock in front of the cottage, which is perfect for fishing, or just sitting and taking in the view. We would certain recommend this place if you are visiting Nova Scotia!

Wonderful and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation at this delightful and charming vacation rental in Ketch Harbour. Our hosts Cheryl and Tony Boyd are an asset and true ambassadors to Nova Scotia Tourism. The location, decor, atmosphere, comfort, cleanliness and totally equipped cottage was a wonderful experience and the front deck overlooking the water was a dream come true. The lovely arrangement of mixed fresh flowers on the dining room table and the colorful flowered window boxes were a bonus. Our thanks to the Boyds for making us feel so much at home. A wonderful home away from home for those wanting to experience Nova Scotia hospitality.

Our Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

It all starts with meeting our charming hosts who are warm and receptive. Then they take you to this period cottage right on a cove with the Ocean in the background and if this is not enough wait until you walk in and are absorbed by the décor that Cheryl & Tony have put together. Nothing to look for as this cottage is totally equipped. The gallery calls for you to sit and have a beverage while you are eyeing your surroundings. We had some light fog and with the fog horns in the background it was a real maritime feeling. Would we recommend it, only if you want to have a great time. We would be back in a flash!! Thanks Cheryl & Tony for all your suggestions for day trips and restaurants, etc..

Cheryl and Tony's beautiful renovated 100 year old cottage is a charming, well equipped home away from home with all the comforts of home. We loved having our coffee on the new deck with the harbour right there with all the fishing boats.

Halifax is just a short drive away. Everyday we had new destinations to see.

We did not want to leave this tranquil cottage.

Thank you, Cheryl and Tony. We will definitely come again.
