Beautiful location, great property with lovely gardens, and great view of the water, a lighthouse and Brier island. Great whale watching. Very relaxing, quiet area, very friendly locals. Was a great place to unwind for a week before visiting Halifax and the typical tourist venues. Cottage was clean and well appointed.
