EXPLORE ALL NOVA SCOTIA ATTRACTIONS FROM OUR CENTRALLY LOCATED LAKEFRONT/OCEAN SIDE COTTAGE....WARM freshwater swimming at your doorstep and sandy ocean beach nearby. Ideal location for a relaxing getaway and perfect launchpad to explore all of Nova Scotia.

The Cottage is located on warm, freshwater Indian Harbour Lake (perfect for swimming) which empties into the ocean a few minutes' paddle, walk or drive away at beautiful, sandy Port Hilford Beach. We have been vacationing in the area for over 50 years and have now become permanent residents. We love it so much that we bought the cottage next door to share with others.
The Cottage has 3 bedrooms with 1 full bathroom, ideal for 6 people. It has an open concept kitchen, dining and living room with electric fireplace and a lovely sunroom to enjoy views of the lake or curling up with a good book and a large deck for barbequing, outdoor eating and enjoying amazing sunsets. The cottage is equipped with a gas barbeque, fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cooking utensils and all bedding, linens and towels. There is an outdoor fire pit with firewood supplied. A canoe to explore the lake and fishing gear are available. Bonus! A fishing license is not required!

There are many recreational opportunities nearby, from exploring for Captan Kidd's treasure to the Highland Games, from Music festivals to fine dining. Your activities are limited only by your imagination.

Nora and David's cottage is the perfect place for a Nova Scotia vacation. It is very clean and perfectly appointed with Eastern charm. The lake, that is right out your back door, is calm and peaceful. Nora and David are the best hosts and we have absolutely nothing to complain about our stay there.

Thank you, Janeen. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed having you. We hope you come again.
Nora & David.

Being our first trip out East, Dave & Nora's cottage was perfectly central for all kinds of excursions & activities. Dave & Nora greeted us with a warm welcome & assisted us with any questions we had. If they didn't know, they found out for us. Everyone was extremely friendly & helpful. The kids (& dog) absolutely LOVED swimming off the dock & especially swimming at the beach, just minutes from the cottage. The cottage was very clean & was equipped with everything you need. We travelled to Peggys Cove & Halifax for Canada Day & also enjoyed a day on Cape Breton exploring the Cabot trail. I can't say it enough about how amazing the location & cottage are. Sherbrooke is only a 10 minute drive away and has everything you need...also if you have the chance, explore Antigonish as well. They are both very cute towns that have everything you need. Thanks again Nora & David. We can't say enough good things about staying at your beautiful, clean & perfectly located cottage. Would definitely recommend it to future renters.

We stayed for 10 nights in this perfect lakeside cottage. Very roomy, clean and well kept cottage with a beautiful deck. The lake is perfect for swimming and Dave and Nora allowed us to use their dock for access. We had our dog with us and he had lots of room to run when he wasn't swimming in the lake. The Port Hillford beach is definitely a hidden gem and is only minutes away. We often had the beach to ourselves. Another hidden gem is the Red Hill golf course about a five minute drive away. It is a nice 9 hole course with great views and value! We had a couple of fires with incredible views of the stars. Visited the old Sherbrooke Village as well as a really nice little spot for lunch called Beanie's Bistro. Was a great family trip and would definitely return.

Arrived to a wonderfully clean and well decorated (nautical theme) cottage and met Dave and Nora who were absolutely lovely. We enjoyed day trips to Port Hilford Beach (5 min drive) and Port Bickerton Lighthouse/Beach (15 min drive). We had a 3.5 km hike to that beach but it was absolutely gorgeous and a hidden gem for sure. Waves were fun (even saw some surfers) and a long stretch of white Sandy Beach. Definately one of the nicest beaches we've visited in Nova Scotia. At our cottage, we saw the greatest display of stars and Dave was kind enough to lend us his telescope. We saw fireflies, blue Jays and lots of hummingbirds right on our deck with us while we sunbathed. Swimming at their dock next door was lots of fun and the lake is absolutely beautiful for swimming and the dock for watching some glorious sunsets. We will definitely return as we had a truly wonderful stay.
