Overview

About the property

Ocean view cottage close to beaches

Cosy cottage nestled in the centuries old fishing village of Birchy Head, located 150 feet from the waters of St. Margaret's Bay. Eight minutes from Hubbards, less than an hour from the communities of Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove as well as downtown Halifax. One hour from Stanfield International Airport. Conveniently located within minutes of Freewheeling Adventures, for kayaking and biking. Watch the sunrise over the bay, passing fishing boats and sea life, all from the large wrap-around deck. The cottage has 500 square feet of living area, plus 416 square feet of deck with ocean view, propane barbeque and deck chairs.

The interior of the cottage has a Murphy Bed which folds effortlessly into the wall when not in use. There is a fully equipped kitchen and three piece bath.

The building dates back to 1860 and was at one time a post office, a general store and a toy shop, located in Hubbards, until it was moved to its present location.

It is supplied with a colour television as well as WiFi.

Lovely cottage in a very cute area

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time! The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable getaway. Nice beaches nearby, beautiful small towns, and some great food. Make sure to go to the Shore Club for lobster dinner.
