About the property

Lakefront Retreat With Sandy Beach, Perfect For Kids

This bright 3 bedroom, newly renovated cottage is the ideal location for a relaxing lakeside holiday. Located on Trout Lake, a family-friendly cottage community, this property enjoys a large deck, fenced-in garden and private sandy beach. Relax on the back deck and take in the elevated view of Trout Lake, and the sights and sounds of nature.

The living room, open-plan kitchen and dining area are great for entertaining, with the dining table seating 10. The modern kitchen, with generous island and all new appliances, is equipped with everything needed to cook up a feast. Large windows and sliding doors lead on to the back deck where you will find patio furniture and a gas barbeque and there are laundry facilities in the basement.

The living room is tastefully furnished and provides access to a sunroom, which is a perfect place to enjoy the views in warmer weather, or for the kids to play games or watch a DVD in the evening. One of the bedrooms is on the main floor, with a double bed and a large closet. It is next to the bathroom that has a shower stall.

The master bedroom, with queen sized bed, is on the upper level and it enjoys lake views from a large sliding door, which leads to it's own private balcony. The ensuite bathroom has a tub/shower combination. Across the hall is another bedroom which is perfect for the kids, with a set of bunk beds and an additional twin bed, it sleeps three. This bedroom also has it's own bathroom complete with a shower stall.

The house has approximately 150 feet of shoreline and enjoys a serene view of forests, islands and pristine water. The waterfront is perfect for swimming and is especially good for children as there is a large area of shallow water before gradually getting deeper. There are plenty of lawn chairs and a firepit on the beach where you can take in the sunset or the stars while listening to the water lapping on the shore. The house comes equipped with a canoe, paddles and life jackets for you to explore the lake. If you're really lucky, you may get a close up view of the resident family of loons or paddle past the beaver dam.

About Owner/Property Manager

Alex lives and works in the UK with his Canadian wife and 3 daughters in a small chapel in a typical English village. Loves to travel to hidden away places and indulge in local delicacies..

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Middleton

We loved the people on the lake already but when we found the house was for sale, we saw the opportunity to transform this house into a home from home as we regularly visit Nova Scotia to see family and friends. My wife enjoyed renovating the property from top to toe.

Placement is ideal! We can quickly get to some of the South Shore's best ocean beaches or head north to witness some of the best whale watching we have ever experienced.

What makes this house unique

Set in one of the most beautiful lake locations with a wonderful friendly community around the lake.

The beach is an added bonus with shallow water out to at least 50 meters, the water gets warm very quickly..

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful visit to Nova Scotia. Your cottage was great and everyone that visited loved it. It is great for entertaining. We would definitely consider staying at Hummingbird Cove again

our daughter loved the beach area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Relaxing area you can really enjoy the beauty of the lake. Our 10 year old daughter loved being able to kayak in her own kayak and swim in the water. The chairs by the lake were a great place to “lifeguard”. My husband and I relaxed with coffee in the sunroom with the lake view each morning while the girls slept in. Great selection of things for kids to do in the game closet. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils.

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbird Cove has all the comforts of home but still has a laid back cottage feel. We all loved the beautiful cottage, and the peaceful location. The large kitchen and patio tables were great for family meals and the sun room was the perfect place for the kids to put on several shows! The cottage was clean and Alex was easy to communicate with. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful space. We will definitely be back!

The right place for very relaxed and peaceful holidays

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Hummingbird Cove very much. A lovely modern house at the Trout lake with it's own beach. The right place for very relaxed and peaceful holidays. The house has everything you need for your stay. We specially loved the huge kitchen. A good place if you like to bake and cook. The kitchen is very well equipped with all kind of tools, you will miss nothing. And last but not least, it's very friendly and helping neighbors next door. We would definitely book Hummingbird Cove again for our next vacation in beautiful Nova Scotia.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice and plenty of room for entertaining. I have a lot of relatives in the area so we had plenty of visitors. Everything we needed was there for us. We will definitely be looking at staying again the next time we visit the valley.
