  • Great Location and Charming Property

    "We had a wonderful stay at this restored fisherman's home on the water. This spacious, immaculately clean two story home was nicely furnished and you could see that a great deal of care was taken in restoring it. An added bonus was the ability to view beautiful sunsets from the shore behind the home. Tom and Donna were great resources for information on places to see and best restaurants in the area. Our only regret was that our 3 day stay at this lovely home was not long enough. We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Peggy's Cove area."

  • An Extraordinary property inside and out

    "We rented the Eagle's Nest and Eagle's Landing simultaneously for 7 nights. It was extraordinary inside and out. First the location: It's about 1 mile up a combination paved and smooth gravel road with some houses along the road. However, at the rental site itself, no houses are visible, just a long, winding and clean lake with miles of unspoiled forest beyond. The nearest town, Bridgewater, is not a pretty place, but it has a Walmart, supermarkets, fast food and all the necessities. About 35 minutes from the Eagle's Nest is the charming, historic seaside town of Lunenburg--abounding with brightly painted old homes, very good restaurants, shops, etc. Don't miss a tour of the Ironworks Distillery! Convenience and a remote-feeling location-pretty special. And did I mention the view, the view, the view--far lovelier than the website photos can indicate. Take a short walk to their boathouse and take out the kayaks (life jackets are at the boathouse) to get to enjoy the lake close up. We appreciated the solitude! Nice to leave the city behind. The great views of the lake and woods are readily visible from the many windows inside of Eagle's Nest. The rustic exterior of the home belies an interior that is quite sophisticated and spacious-designed by a Swiss architect for himself. White adobe-like walls form rounded surrounds of the windows. And lots of white pine beams makes for a bright, clean look. The bits of tile and red accent pieces were cheerful and chic. One note, the stairs to the upper quarters are backless and might not be compatible for some dogs. Also, follow Marie's directions not your navigation system!!!! Mine took us to a wicked road from which we had to back down. Marie is lovely, by the way, and helpful as can be!"

  • Serenity..the only word to describe this place.

    "While this cottage is secluded, feeling like we were a bit 'off the grid' , we found it so convenient to access all amenities that we required such as local grocery stores and restaurants. We used this cottage as our 'home base' while exploring the South Shore of Nova Scotia. The drives to Chester, Mahone Bay, Peggy's Cove, and Lunenburg were pleasurable as the main road for this cottage is right near the Lighthouse Route so maps were not even required.....you just follow the highway. Roads in the area are very well marked for exploring, as well. The cottage itself is very comfortable and clean and it provides everything that you probably need, including internet service and washer and dryer. The best feature was the main bedroom that consists of 2 walls of windows that overlooks the water. It was so peaceful.....it really was hard to leave everyday to do the area exploring when you could just lie in bed with your coffee and enjoy the views. While we were there, I saw 5 deer and a fox so this provided some entertainment. What was something that we did not think of when booking and learned by experience was that Chester does not have the 'tour buses' running in and out of town all day and to us that was a positive. When we visited other sites, this was sometimes overwhelming, especially in Peggy's Cove. You missed all this tourist action for the most part in Chester. Jane Paul, the owner was incredible. She was at the cottage to great us and was very knowledgeable about the area. She was staying close by and provided us with absolutely anything we needed..usually within minutes. She provided emails prior to our stay detailing directions, recommended restaurants and activities. I can say that anyone who takes a trip to this area MUST go to the Shore Club for the lobster dinner, They closed for the season on October 9th this year so I am not sure when they would re-open again. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a family (3 bedrooms with closet and dresser drawer space and washer and dryer), or couple. It was indeed an enjoyable stay ....one that we would like to repeat one day."
