A spectacular corner of the world viewed from a homey cottage
Everything about Whaleback Cottage is perfect. The cottage itself is charming from the antique chandelier to the living room surrounded with great views of the oceanfront to the nearby pond filled with water lilies.
There are paths to explore, decks to gather on and a fire pit to sit around at night.
The kitchen is well supplied, and the bedrooms are charming.
And, of course, there is the ocean and many ways to explore the magnificent rock formations along the ocean front.
A wonderful retreat.
This house was an excellent gateway he ocean. The rocks along the shoreline are easy to walk along, and beautiful to watch the sunset from. It does smell a bit musty, but that was fixed by opening all of the windows, and we were not surprised about this as it is so close to the ocean. It was very private. Excellent and would recommend!
Great spot for a quiet vacation
Stayed here with friends for a week. A beautiful spot; very friendly owners who are very helpful. Beautiful views of the ocean and nice walking on the rocks by the water.
Great Cottage. GREAT LOCATION
Loved the cottage. Beautiful views. Loved watching the seals. Peggys cove was great. Great climbing at Dover island. People were all awesome and very helpful. Best lobster i ever ate from Ryers seafood.
Wonderful secluded Cottage on rocks outside Peggys Cove
What a great place to unwind and relax. Cottage has an exceptional view of Nova Scotia rocky coast line with Peggy's Cove in background.Hosts Tom and Donna were very friendly and tended to any needs for a pleasant stay. Cottage was in very good condition and furnishings were charming for the area. Views from all four sides of cottage were exceptional and even outstanding star gazing with no light pollution. Descriptions and accuracy of listing was excellent. I found no negatives.
Great Views, Tranquil, Good Hosts
Donna and Tom were very helpful and great hosts. Tom taught my daughters how to cook mussels, and eat an oyster. They were a fun couple to have over. The house is comfortable with 270 degree view of the ocean. A great walk along the rocks. You are in picturesque Indian Harbor with a great view of Peggy's Cove Light House. Peggy's Cove is four minutes by car. Get your supplies up in Tantallon at the junction of 213 and Hwy 3. There is not a lot once you are on Peggy Cove Road.
