3 Bedrooms

Smoking

Fireplace
Internet

Late-Victorian home on three levels (including a full-length attic with a fine view of from the dormer and vast space for play, escape, or sleep ).

The front door leads into a wide, multiple-window porch ideal for a morning read or afternoon tea. Behind it are the living room, bedroom/study, and dining room/ kitchen, all with the original tin ceilings. Front and rear stairways lead to second-floor bedrooms (two) and living area with futon bed/couch.

The main floor bathroom has a shower, washer, dryer; second-floor, bath and shower.

This house is being renovated during the tourist off-season, and will be lovely inside and out by early June. We've created more living space and added windows for better light, while retaining the warm traditional atmosphere. The reasonable rental rate lets families savour southern Nova Scotia's many attractions while not spending a fortune. The building stands less than three minutes from the east harbour (known as the Breakwater), a great spot for photos and for getting one's hands on fresh sea-food. A lovely wide sand beach is 17 km away on Cape Sable Island. An excellent walking path, the former railroad line, runs behind the house through woods. Acadian culture abounds in nearby Pubnico. To top it all off, sunsets over Cockawit Bay (directly in front of the house) never cease to enthrall.

4 of us 2 (couples) stayed here for 4 days. We had a blast. The house was great. It is in the last stages of a complete renovation and showing so much character. Darla & Cindy went to great lengths to make sure we had everything we needed. Darla even got 4 lobsters for us at a great price. There is lots to do in the area, if you go there don't miss checking out the museum dedicated to the famous UFO sighting a few decades ago at Shag Harbour.
Lobster fondue at the Lobster Shack in Barrington is a must do.
If we are ever in the area in future, we would stay at the house again.

My sisters and I stayed here and had a really lovely time. We appreciated the warm welcome from our hosts and after making sure we had everything we needed were left to enjoy all the house and the area had to offer. There were 11 of us in all and there was plenty of room for us to rest and play as we wished. The house is well equipped, clean, warm and inviting. I plan to return on a regular basis. For me and my sisters... a real find.
