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.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking distance to beach. Biking, hiking, golfing, beachcombing, watertours, scenic drives, heritage sites, wineries, river rafting, and World Famous Peggy's Cove are at our door step. Or enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine on your deck and watch the ever changing ocean.

Ocean waves, sunshine and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at this charming little cottage. Breakfast was on the ocean facing deck with warm sunshine. We had to pop into Halifax a couple times. Only 40 minutes on the scenic route outside of the business traffic. The cottage is warm, comfy, cute and there is everything you need to feel at home. The ocean is just over the road waiting for you to walk along. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage.

Beautiful seaview property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 nights in this beautiful sea view property......home from home with all the facilities to cook and do laundry if this is what you require.

It is located in the gorgeous St Margarets Bay with rail and trail facilities running right behind the property if walking and biking is your thing (bikes to rent at the bike and bean cafe in Upper Tantallon)

Fantastic beaches, hubbards farmers market, The Shore Club all within easy reach as well as easy driving distance to Halifax, Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and of course the photogenic Peggy's cove.

Many thanks Arlene and Randy for all of your helpful tour and dining suggestions as well as your beautiful clean property.

We would recommend this property and would stay again ourselves.

Oceanview cottage was centrally located facing St. Margaret's Bay with wonderful views. It was an easy drive to Halifax, Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg. In addition, Arlene’s and Randy’s touring suggestions enhanced our trip. The cottage itself is artistically decorated and well provisioned. We were sad to leave after our stay, but we now have many happy memories.

Property location on St. Margaret's Bay is within driving distance to Supermarkets and plazas.Front patio directly faces the very relaxing to be sitting outside.

The cottage itself is more than adequately stocked in cookware, utensils etc., clean, and very attractive inside....We were most comfortable during our week stay.

Comfortable, Bright, Cheery,Relaxing, A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to know whether a posting of an item or home will be like what it says on the computer, but in this case. I was delighted when we drove into the driveway and

The inside was spacious and we felt quite comfortable. Looking outside onto the Ocean was a feeling of calmness and excitement. The Meeting the owners Randy and Arlene was the icing on the cake. It's going to be hard to leave this Cottage of Heaven. I would certainly stay here again and will spread the word.

Relaxing, calming & peaceful

  • 5 of 5

When you drive up to the cottage you can't be anything, but happy! The colors and decorations just make you smile and you know you have arrived at your vacation destination. Then when you enter the French doors into the bedroom the feeling continues. The cottage is everything I thought it would be comfortable, well decorated and just makes you happy to be there. The kitchen is well stocked and all the paper goods they supply are easily accessible. The view of the bay is to die for, you are so close to the water, you can hear the waves crash on the rocks. There is nothing more peaceful then sitting outside with a cup of coffee listening to the waves or going to sleep with the windows open and hearing the surf.

Randy and Arlene were a dream to work with, from making the reservation to informing us of great spots to eat and visit. They also welcomed my pups which is a bonus for me as we don't travel without them. You will not be disappointed if you rent this cottage, the location is perfect for relaxing and sightseeing. If you go to Halifax I recommend going to the Citidel & the Public Gardens. Traveling the other way Lunenburg is a must, a charming old fishing village with plenty to see. Last is you are a fan of the History Channel, go on Oak Island's website and see if they will be giving a tour while you are there. There are also plenty of beaches, from right across the street to several down the road.

I highly recommend this cottage to everyone!
