Property description

Build in the early 1950s, this cottage has been upgraded and decorated to create the best of old and new: painted wood floors, antique furnishings and a self-sufficient kitchen. The cottage has two bedrooms - one queen and one double - and a spacious living room with a foldout sofa.

The back deck is the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks while you prepare dinner on the BBQ or you can move to the front deck and take in the majestic beauty of Ketch Harbour.

The cottage sits on a beautiful lot with mature trees, wild flowers and old rock walls.
