This house has a separate dinning room and a beautiful living room with a wood burning fireplace. The master bedroom (Queen) also has a fireplace and a large flat screen TV perfect for lazy evenings.

This home has 2.5 bathrooms. The master bath has a whirlpool tub. We also have a 19ft x 14ft private yoga studio that you are free to use at your leisure.
Nova Scotia's Crystal Crescent Provincial Beach is a 5 minute car ride from the Lake house. This beach is second to none! You can enjoy a day in the soft white sand, swimming in the ocean or taking a beautiful beach hike on one of the many different trails, the view is truly breathtaking.
***Private, Scenic and Fun!***
The beach is just around the corner, but staying on the property is just as special. You can spend the day on the beautiful private wharf, take a swim in the lake or take a canoe ride. You can also use our paddleboat or use our standing paddle board (upon request). Also, for those looking to relax and just soak up the sun, this property is very private and serene.
We have an outdoor barbecue and patio dining set on our spacious deck over looking the lake, perfect for enjoying great food and taking in an outstanding view. Our sunsets are a must see!
***Downtown Halifax is 20 minutes away***
This lake home is a 20 minutes car ride away from the bustling and historical downtown area of Halifax. With several live music venues, great seafood restaurants and many sights to see, Halifax is the perfect city to visit.
*** Fall and Winter are Beautiful***
This property has the best of both worlds: the serenity of the lake and nature, as well as easy access to downtown.
Come on the off season and explore the other treasures Nova Scotia has to offer. In winter and early spring you can drive 1.25 hours To Martock Ski or drive 1.5 hour to Wentworth Valley and ski.
This home is also great as a home base to return to after small day trips around the area. One of the most beautiful times to visit Nova Scotia is in the Fall, the weather stays mild and there are many beautiful hikes and day trips to the scenic and quaint valley. Go apple picking, antique shopping or take a wine tour. There is also whale watching a few hours away.
