Hello, welcome to our paradise deluxe cottage retreat on Falls Lake! Very private, peaceful and fully equipped, this brand-new modern and open concept cottage was just completed by Denim Homes in June 2016. It is situated on 2.6 acres of forested woodlot with 340 feet of waterfront for all-season enjoyment.
This single story cottage can sleep up to 4 adults with 4 children (depending on age), or 6 adults. There is a king-size bed in each of the 2 large bedrooms with top quality mattresses and bedding. One of the king-sized beds can be split into 2 twins. For additional guests we have 2 high/comfortable "Outbound" twin beds that can be placed in the bedrooms. We also have 2 new cots with foam padding. All are complete with sheets, down comforters and pillows. Bedrooms walls are sound insulated.
The cottage has 1.5 bathrooms with top of the line fixtures. The main bath has a deep soaker tub with tiled surround and a great shower. It also has a sun tunnel and the vanity countertop is high quality quartz. Adjacent to the main bath is a spacious "Little John". Included are large beach towels and new good quality bath towels.
The kitchen has quartz counters, a beautiful granite slab island with 4 bar stools, and quality stainless steel appliances. Complete with Paderno cutlery, pots and pans, it also has separate cutlery, glasses, plates etc for outdoor use. Also provided for your use are many spices, sugar, tea, coffee, coffee mate, flour and olive oil barbeque condiments.
There is bathing soap, hair shampoo and conditioner.
The Great Room has a large vaulted ceiling with panoramic windows overlooking the deck and lake, complimented with a high-efficiency wood stove to keep cozy in the winter (wood bundles available for $5 each).
Flooring consists of large wood-like porcelain tiles. There is a heat pump for heating and air conditioning.
A large deck overlooks the lake and also has a large screened in porch with a dining table, chairs and BBQ. Two Mosquito Magnets stand guard in the nearby woods to keep the mosquitoes at bay.
Lakeside there is a large sandy beach from which you can walk into the lake for a swim. There is a fire pit for campfires at night.
For fun there are 3 kayaks, lifejackets, Frisbee, noodles, swim goggles, washer toss, and lots of indoor games/books. In the Great Room there is a large 50 inch flat screen TV with Blu-Ray DVD player and big-speaker sound for movies. A top of the line stereo system includes a Bluetooth receiver, CD player, and radio. We consciously decided not to have high-speed internet or satellite TV as we like to be away from it all. For internet we use our Smartphone or laptops hooked up to our cellular hotspots and have a fast internet.
We love our dogs and our dogs love it here! Our place is dog friendly and comes with 2 dog beds and dog bowls (no sleeping on couch and beds!!) After each visit the dog bedding is washed. For hiking there is a nearby trail where one can hike for hours with the dogs. Dogs need to be under your control at ALL times however.
Our cottage is only 60 minutes from Halifax. Activities include swimming, kayaking, hiking, fires on the beach, BBQs on the deck, golf, horseback riding, ice skating, snowmobiling, and downhill/cross country skiing at Ski Martock (only 20 min away). Falls Lake has active loon and kingfisher populations, hummingbirds, eagles, rabbits, deer, moose and occasionally, a black bear.
Only 10 minutes away is the Irving convenience store in Upper Vaughan, which offers gas, groceries, take out, movie rentals and a liquor store. The town of Windsor in the Annapolis Valley is approximately 25 minutes away and has large grocery and hardware stores, a hospital, museums, an Irish pub and restaurants.
The South Shore and quaint seaside town of Chester on the Atlantic Ocean are only a short drive away (30 min). Nearby to Chester are the beautiful towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the popular beaches of Hubbards, Queensland, and Bayswater.
Nearby in the Annapolis Valley are numerous world class vineyards, the closest of which is Sainte Famille Vineyard in nearby Falmouth. Other wineries include Pete Luckett's, Muir Murray, Jost, Gaspereau, Grand Pré and Blomidon. Most offer vineyard tours.
Day trips from Falls Lake may include Upper Clements Theme Park, Risers Beach, Kejimkujik National Park, Aylesford Zoo, New Ross Farm and the charming fishing village of Halls Harbour on the Bay of Fundy (highest tides in the world).

Amazing cottage and beautiful view
Booked the cottage as a little March break getaway. Arrived and was overwhelmed with the amazing cottage and view. I love to cook and was pleasantly surprised to find everything I would of needed already at the cottage. We were warm and toasty and enjoyed sitting and chatting with friends while looking out at the water with the wood stove crackling. Only wished we could have enjoyed the beach, kayaks and the outdoor fire pit. We are already talking about a girls weekend in the summer. Thank you for the use of your beautiful cottage :)
We are happy you had such a nice time Karen and also.... thank you for taking care of the place and leaving it in such great condition.
You girls are welcome anytime😊
Perfect Place for a Winter Getaway
This property was simply exceptional and the perfect place for our weekend skiing vacation last February. Our group of five felt welcomed and comfortable with all the creature comforts that were offered. We especially enjoyed the wood stove upon returning from the slopes. Mark and Jennifer were very attentive quick to respond to any questions that we had. We highly recommend this gem.
Fantastic Home - Perfect Vacation Location
My husband & I (& our 3 Labradoodles) spent a week at this special home in the heart of Nova Scotia. Modern design, great kitchen, very comfortable furniture, terrific screen porch & deck overlooking a beautiful lake. Beautifully maintained with a lovely landscape. Owners were very supportive. Welcomed us with open arms & provided excellent advice about their home & local area. Highly recommend for those who want a quiet, beautiful home in a very private setting. We would return in a heartbeat!
We would highly recommend this beautiful cottage located on a large, private lot on a quiet lake. Our family of 6 enjoyed a week stay in July and were able to do a number of day trips because of the central location.
The property and cottage were immaculate and everything was provided (linens, cookware,laundry etc). Jennifer and Mark greeted us and gave us a quick orientation and the left us to enjoy.
Thank you Jennifer and Mark for s great week!!
The cottage was beautiful - we loved it!
We rented this cottage for a girls weekend away. Mark and Jennifer were great to deal with, the cottage was beautiful, very clean and fully stocked with everything you'd ever need. The little beach with easy access to the lake was awesome! Highly recommend!
