Beautiful restoration cottage located on the stunning Cape John Peninsula, River John. Views of the River John River and working fields. Minutes drive, walk or bike ride to sandy beaches with the warm waters of the North shore. Special September prices. Close to Tatamagouche (10 minutes) or Pictou (25 minutes).

The cottage features a kitchen, dining room, parlour, bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower and upstairs bedrooms with queen, double and twin beds. Spacious upstairs allows for cribs if traveling with small children. Owner has small child, and so entire home has been baby proofed! There is new wood stove and electric heat throughout. Washing machine in basement and clothesline outside. Gas BBQ located on deck which faces onto the water. Beautiful gardens have been started, and the property has views of the fields, water and forest.

Restored in 2010/11 this house was originally built in the 1850's. River John was primarily a boat building town at that time, and this house shows the care and craftsmanship of the trade. There are wooden knees in each of the four eves made of tree roots, a feature prominent in boat building. The softwood floors are hemlock, and the wooden walls are first growth hemlock slats. The tin you find throughout was originally present in the home, although often under layers of other materials. Many details of the original home have been preserved. Through a long process, this home has been lovingly restored.
Waterfront: Excellent view of the water, 5 minute walk to beach

GLC was the perfect place to spend our family vacation! Aptly named ?Good Luck Cottage?, upon our arrival we were greeted with a full double rainbow! We spent the days beachcombing the shores of Cape John, and evenings enjoying the patio and star gazing. It was the ideal setting for us to disconnect and connect as a family, thank you for that. GLC will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Good Luck Cottage was healing medicine during a very tumultuous uncertain time. It balanced out all the craziness with quiet, chances for reflection and beauty. The care that Sheilah has taken in restoring the cottage brings you in touch with the history of the place that is unique and every square inch gives you chances to connect with nature and yourself. I will return again and again to be in its presence.

Relaxation & Rejuvenation - This was my experience at the Good Luck Cottage. A beautiful setting to reset and recharge. The porch swing was one of my favourite places to sit and read and pass a summer evening, with the occasional visit from a deer. Coming from the city, I enjoyed the peace and quiet and nights lit up with stars. A perfect place for relaxing, resetting, and reconnecting. I cannot recommend this cottage enough!

I can't say enough good things about the Good Luck Cottage! My daughter and I had the pleasure of enjoying this piece of heaven the first week of September. Sheilah and Rita were so accommodating from the booking, to making us feel like we were right at home once there. The cottage was everything I could have hoped for and more. I love the way they have renovated capturing the true character of this historical home. The location is very private and sits on a rural road which is quite nice for walking and leads down to Cape John. There was much to do in a short drive from beaches, shopping, sightseeing and of course the dining. The beds were very comfy, all the essentials were provided and even has a little vegetable garden that you can help yourself to if in season. We did a lot of travelling while we where there from Cape Breton to PEI, down to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay, whale watching on the Bay of Fundy so I REALLY appreciated the claw foot tub at the end of the day to wash the tired sightseeing miles away. The only thing I would have changed was less sightseeing and just enjoying the cottage more. I can't wait to go back!! Thank you again Sheilah and Rita. *** as a footnote I would like to advise that if travelers are interested in whale watching the only place to see the whales is in the Bay of Fundy. Just a fyi.

Nous avons adoré le calme et le charme de cette jolie maison. Endroit rustique et confortable situé sur une route tranquille. Grand terrain pour que notre chien puisse jouer. À notre arrivée, les rideaux volaient au vent, toutes les fenêtres étaient ouvertes et un joli bouquet de fleurs de champs était déposé sur la table de la cuisine. Endroit idéal pour se reposer dans un décor épuré et typique.
