On the second floor are 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms (95 square meters around 1000 square feet). The master bath room is equipped with a Whirlpool tub, a big walking Shower …and has a big window.

The other deck provides for breakfast in the morning sun, BBQ in the afternoon or evening. In the winter you have the cozy warmth of a wood stove and a heated floor. Inverness is within comfortable reach for grocery shopping or eating out in one of its restaurants with fresh sea food but far enough to give you the impression of being away from civilization. Activities in Nova Scotia are offered year round based upon the season. The newly opened Cabot Link's and Cliff's Golf Course is just 15 km away and provides for ocean views. This is ideal to get away from busy city life and to enjoy nature and outdoor activities. More

We had a wonderful week-long stay! A quiet, secluded area to enjoy some spectacular sunsets. Inverness is just a few minutes away, with some nice shops (including an excellent coffee shop), and an excellent beach. Really let’s you get away from it all, while still...More

The house is in a very peaceful and private location overlooking the ocean. The open plan of the house is beautiful, with lovely views of the ocean or forest out every window. It is close to Inverness, the Margarees, and many warm water sandy beaches....More
