Over the last couple of years, things have certainly been different! Some travellers were forced to cancel their reservations and stay closer to home. We were therefore pleasasntly surprised when several Nova Scotians booked our cottage! It was a delight to see guests discover what was to some of them, a new part of Nova Scotia. It seems we are also midway between Halifax and Sydney so it was an ideal meeting spot for others.
So whether you are new to Nova Scotia or just looking to discover more of this beautiful province, ours is a great place for a vacation.
The cottage has been completely updated inside. We look forward to your visit and remember, well-mannered pets are always welcome.

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. Outdoors, there is a large deck for relaxing, barbequing and outdoor eating and a dock right outside the door for swimming and enjoying amazing sunsets. The cottage is equipped with a gas barbeque, fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cooking utensils and 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!

This is my dream cottage! Knotty pine floors and walls and a lovely sunroom with wicker furniture. Beautiful Indian Harbour Lake is a few feet away and so quiet. The sound of loons serenades you to sleep. We enjoyed the Muskoka style chairs on the dock and excellent swimming in fresh water. Port Hilford Beach on the ocean is a 2 min drive away and gorgeous.
We hope to return! Our hosts were friendly and communication with them was easy.

What a lovely cottage and a beautiful serene location overlooking the late. The cottage was fully equipped and had all we needed for a wonderful week. Our dogs loved it too. Would have gladly stayed on longer. Thank you to hosts Nora and David.

What an amazing cottage and lake! We spend a magical week swimming, relaxing and reading in the beautiful sun room that has an unreal view. The property is spotless, so functional and comfortable. We felt completely at home and were sad to leave. Can't wait to go back!

Thank you, Alana. It was a pleasure having you and you friends. We are glad you enjoyed what we think is a pretty special place. We look forward to your next visit. Nora & David

A perfect retreat with friends! We enjoyed swimming off the private dock, nights under the stars with a crackling fire, lounging on the deck, walks on the nearby beach, the list goes on! The pictures do not do this lovely little home justice, it is much more spacious and modern than we expected such that even with 6 adults and two dogs crammed in on a rainy afternoon it was very comfortable and we all enjoyed some cards and puzzles. The hosts were lovely and very understanding (even with our crazy pups), they were flexible with scheduling, check in/check out times, and even had a little gift for us upon arrival!

Thank you, Katie. We're so glad you and your friends (and beautiful pups!) enjoyed the cottage. It was a pleasure having you and we look forward to your next visit.

This cottage has an ideal location it is situated on a large lake and a few minutes away from a lovely ocean beach.
Nora and David are excellent hosts, they are both discret and always available to answer any questions.
The cottage it self is furnished with taste, it is cozy inside and ideal for outdoor living with a large deck for eating, a nice dock where we had drinks while watching some beautiful sun sets. There is also a floating dock to swim to and a canoe to explore the lake.
All linings, dishes, pots and pan etc... were almost new, and the cottage was very clean.
We spent a wonderful ten days listening to the loons, the chipmunks and the silence ! We went canoeing , swimming, biking, we read in the hammock, we played badminton, sat around the camp fire and watched the stars at night. It was a very restful and peaceful vacation.
Thank you Nora and David, we hope to come back.
PS : you may want to get your groceries before heading to the cottage, we found that the local stores didn't have much choice.
