Travel has certainly changed. Most of our guests used to be from places other than Nova Scotia. Over the last few years, we have been pleasasntly surprised by the number of Nova Scotians visiting 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!

We spent a sunny and spectacular week enjoying the dock and the house, as well as perusing the ocean beach one kilometer away. It felt like our own private beach- just a few families and dog walkers all happy to chat. There was a warm river running into the oceran (from the lake) which meant kids bathed at that end- a real treat. There were sandpipers, a seal, terns, gulls, shells, tiny fish- you could spend a long time slowly looking at the newly washed up items each day.
The lake is warm; we were in every day. There is room enough for a gang of friends or a large family, a lovely porch in case of inclement weather and a wrap around balcony with places to sit and enjoy the lake view. Nora and David were very helpful and right next door, so it was easy to ask for information about the area. The place is a bit secluded, so you need to bring in your favourite things to eat - we stocked up at a large grocery store beforehand and then made a short run to two nearby towns for the basics we needed. Check out the lovely bakery/gift store down the road- the owners have really lovely gifts of all kinds, mostly lovely photos and paintings but worth the visit.

It was a pleasure having you, Stephanie and Lorelei, at our cottage and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay in what we think is a special part of Nova Scotia. We would love to have you come again.

Two items to be aware of: 1.) there is no washer or dryer for this cottage, 2.) there is no air conditioning, though you will need AC very little in Nova Scotia.
That being said, WE LOVED OUR STAY IN THIS COTTAGE. It is beautifully decorated, wonderfully provisioned with cooking ware, a fine stove and refrigerator, and a good dishwasher. The view of the lake is spectacular and the deck at water's edge excellent for swimming off of or just lounging in the big Adirondack chairs watching the sunset. Nearby Historic Sherbrooke Village, 9 miles (14 kil) away, is well worth spending an afternoon visiting. There is a wonderful sand beach on the ocean just a mile and a half down the road from the cottage. The small waves (one or two feet high) roll in and we found the half mile long beach deserted in the mornings (but busy in the PM). We were very comfortable in this cottage.

Thank you for your review, Greg. We are so glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay at our cottage and we hope you come again.

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!
