***Nova Scotia Beach Life***
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!

*** 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.
We are a local couple born and raised in the Halifax area. We have 3 children and this house in Williamswood is very dear to our heart and has been a venue to many lasting memories including a family members wedding last year. Although this was our family home at one time, we now live in Halifax, only 20 minutes fro this lakefront home. We are committed to the upkeep of this property and visit often, especially during beach and lake swimming season. We love to share this gorgeous home with others.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. Our hosts were very personable and attentive: they provided lots of toys for the kids (our guys LOVED the Big Wheels) and when we asked for oars for the row boat, they brought some over the next day. The house itself is well looked after (they obviously take great pride in it and keep it up very nicely) and the grounds are gorgeous. The location was a fabulous launching point not only for activities in Halifax, but also for other places such as Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg and the Annapolis Valley. We spent a number of days just splashing in the water at Crystal Crescent Beach; it has such beautiful sand and the kids were busy making sand castles for several hours. When we come out East again, we know where we'll hope to stay.
We went to Nova Scotia for our sons wedding, it was difficult to find a house rental for eight including two young children. Some owners did not want children or considered their house unsafe for young children. We were so lucky to find the lake house. All the information given was spot on. The owners went out of their way to be extremely helpful right from the moment the booking was made. Toys, bikes, life jackets, paddling pool etc were left for us. When we needed an iron to press wedding clothes a brand new iron and board arrived!
Apart from the helpfulness of the owners the house is wonderful and positioned in a glorious setting with lots of fun to be had on and in the lake yet only took 25 minutes to get into Halifax.
Would strongly recommend this property!
My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. We were able to communicate concerns prior to arriving, which assured us about this rental process. The home was well kept in a beautiful setting. Communicating with the owner for any concerns was easy and anything lacking was resolved in a very short time. Terms to recover our damage deposit were well explained. Highly recommend.
Very nice house. Large bedrooms, plenty of room for a large group. Gorgeous view, lots of room for kids to run around. Lake is pretty but very shallow. Owners were nice enough to let us use their families children's toys and trikes for our son which was a lifesaver.
We would definetly come back if we ever make our way so far East again.
Loved every part of this cottage. The view from the backyard was worth the price. Overall though, the house is in great shape, all the amenities we wanted, took about 20 minutes to drive right into downtown Halifax. 5 minutes from the beach. Grocery store was about 15 minutes away as well. Everything about this place was first class, and I would definitely come back.
The outstanding lakefront property is 5 minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches in Nova Scotia and only 20 minutes away from Halifax. This property has the best of both worlds: the serenity of the lake and nature, as well as easy access to downtown.
