About the property

The Ice House Cottage (Cottage #1) is a stone's throw from the waters edge; close to numerous sandy beaches, within minutes of Freewheeling Adventures, for kayaking and biking. Conveniently located just 8 minutes from Hubbards, and less than an hour from the communities of Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove, as well as downtown Halifax, and an hour's drive from Stanfield International Airport. Formerly used in the fishing trade, the building has been restored into a cosy seaside cottage. It is an all wood structure with an open concept design. The upstairs consists of one large bedroom with a queen size bed, and a full bathroom, while the lower level is the living, dining and kitchen area, which is also equipped with a double futon. Cable telelvision and WiFi are provided.

There is a full wrap-around deck with views of the ocean, from which you can watch the local fishing activity and see the occasional seal or whale, and various seabird species, or just sit and enjoy the salt air and sunshine. The cottage is equipped with a propane barbeque, as well as fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster and full kitchen utensils; towels and linens are also provided.
