We've had quite a year! Now that restrictions are lifting, we have had some cancellations by those able to travel farther afield, so check our calendar for new availabe dates.
Last summer, our out of province guests were forced to cancel their reservations. 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.
We renovated the kitchen last year, so now 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.

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.
Nora & David

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.

Nora and David

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.
