Why Randy Duggan chose St. Margaret's Bay

We purchased this beautiful property because of the view and we never grow tired of looking at the ever changing scenery.

Great little spot

  • 4 of 5

This was a great spot, and had everything we needed and wanted. Some extra little things like binoculars, beach chairs and towels were much appreciated. The location was also great for us, with easy access to Halifax and Lunenburg/Mahone Bay as well as various beaches. The view onto the bay was beautiful, and Randy pointed out a couple of seals that were in the bay.

Randy went out of his way when we hosted a few extra people for dinner one night and another couple overnight, with extra chairs, etc.

It would be nice to not be on such a busy road, as traffic going by during the busy summer season was a bit annoying.

Best cottage we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

Arlene and Randy Duggan are consummate hosts. The cottage is fully equipped for cooking, the views are magnificent, all the amenities are terrific . It's a perfect getaway for two to four (on a sleep sofa). Arlene is a wonderful gardener so flowers are blooming everywhere. I would return tomorrow if I could.

Ideal location for visiting Halifax and Lunenburg

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is a terrific spot with a fabulous view of the bay. Randy and Arlene are wonderfully friendly and so very helpful. They made our stay very special. The house was well equipped with everything we could need. Well located between Halifax and Lunenburg. we could visit for the day and then come back to a tranquil place to rest. We enjoyed walking on the beach and sitting on the deck watching the waves. Thank you for a great holiday.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, very comfortable, with friendly and helpful hosts. It's an easy drive to so many beaches and little towns on the south shore, and a fairly quick trip into Halifax if you're so inclined. It's a pretty quiet road too, I had no problem taking many wonderful naps!
