We are third generation owners of this spectacular property in Karsdale, N.S. In this 1-1/2 story home there are three large bedrooms and one bathroom. There is a cathedral ceiling in the very large living room (17'x27'/5.23m x 8.30m) and a large fireplace. The proper country eat-in kitchen (14'x19' / 4.31m x 5.85m) has everything you will need to prepare your meals. All rooms are nicely furnished with antique or vintage pieces and many handmade hooked rugs. The house is comfortable and filled with old world charm.
Our Canadian property stretches between the Annapolis Basin/Thornes Cove and the Bay of Fundy; shore to shore. We have 238+ acres of woodland and shoreline for your enjoyment. The Thorne's Cove shore is about 60’/18.5m from the living room door, providing a spectacular view. It is a steep climb down to the shore, so we no longer provide an access path.
There are many indoor and outdoor games available. A Ping-Pong table can be set up in the 1-1/2 story, two car detached garage. There are also horseshoes, badminton, board games, puzzles, over 350 movies and over 200 books. If you wish to leave the property there is golfing, whale watching or canoeing all within a 40 minute drive.
There is a steady breeze from the water which can keep the bugs down and provide cooling temperatures in the evening. Because it can get quite breezy, and due to the fact that the volunteer fire department could take an hour to arrive, we do not offer an outside fire pit.
Annapolis Royal (c1604) is North America's oldest permanent European settlement and about a 15 minute drive from the property. There you will find numerous artisan and antique shops and several very good restaurants. The local area abounds with over 400 years of history and should be considered as a travel destination.
We look forward to hosting your stay. Our cottage is located on a very secluded spot on the property. Peace, quiet and privacy are yours for a 3 night minimum visit. It has been our honour to rent to four honeymoon couples, three wedding parties and four wedding receptions.
