The NeighborhoodIf you love the hustle & bustle of the city, this is NOT the place for you! If you love the quiet sounds of nature, privacy, gorgeous views, being a 10 minute walk from White Point beach, you will LOVE it! And civilization is only a few minutes away. My wife & I love Seaside Takeout for clams, or fish & chips, or ice cream, but there are so many other places too! Getting AroundLots of parking, and you'll need a car for sure. We're 2 hours from Halifax airport! But you did want to get away, right? Other Things to NoteYou will have the house to yourself, and we request that if our cat, Joey, shows up at the door please do not let him in or feed him. Thank you.

The SpaceA lovely retreat on Nova Scotia's South Shore. One and a half hours drive from Halifax, seven minutes from Liverpool, on a string of the most beautiful white sand beaches on the East coast of Canada. Close to great restaurants (Lanes Privateers, Liverpool, The Quarterdeck, Summerville Beach, White Point Resort) a golf course, fabulous walking, swimming, kayaking, and surfing! Have a look at our site, LIttle House at Hunts Point, for testimonials from those who've stayed, loved it, and returned! Indoors, a lovely wood stove to cosy up to through the coldest winter day, and outside, a fire pit in the lower garden, perfect for summer bonfires, watching fireflies and roasting marshmallows after a long day on the beach. There is no gas barbecue - we use the fire pit. This is a writers retreat, so we've avoided TV's, telephones, internet or wifi. All can be accessed close by, but we've tried to make this a get-away spot. In the autumn, which is often the best season here you can pick blueberries, pears, and blackberries on the property. Guest AccessGuests have the use of the whole cottage, garden and shed. There are some outdoor chairs stored for guests in the shed. Interaction with GuestsYou'll be told the location of the key, and put in contact with our fabulous cleaning/maintenance woman, (Anne).

Getting AroundYour really need a car to get to the Little House, but the Cycling is great in this area, as is the sea kayaking. There is shed in which to keep you cycles.

    Originally built in 1865, this "Heritage House" has managed to retain its original charm and character without sacrificing modern comfort and convenience. Carefully restored and maintained this vacation home features a sunny well-equipped kitchen, an elegant dining room and a beautiful living room. A parlour off the kitchen artfully combines laundry facilities and a comfortable family room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a double bed in the second bedroom and two single beds in the third bedroom. There is a TV in the single bedroom for movie watching only. There is one four-piece bathroom on the ground floor and a two-piece powder room upstairs. The elegance is in the details - calming paint colours, an antique harvest table in the dining room, thick towels and luxurious bed linens all add to the ambiance. The elegant nature of this home has not interfered with the family friendly feeling of the house. The large lawn and plenty of trees provide space for a game of football and some welcome shade in the summer. A wooden deck complete with charcoal BBQ and patio furniture makes a perfect spot to while away an afternoon. A few hundred meters from the beach, the Swim House is an ideal location for a family holiday. If you have any questions about this vacation rental, please do not hesitate to call or email.

Lockeport is known for its Crescent Beach - a stunning scimitar of white sand approximately 1.5 km or 1 mile long. Lockeport hosts a number of festivals and events during the summer months: Canada Day Celebrations, Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women in Song and the Lockeport Sea Derby. The Canada Day celebration is always on the first of July, Harmony Bazaar typically take place on the last weekend in July while the Sea Derby is usually on the second weekend in August. Crescent Beach Centre hosts the Sea Derby and a number of family events, such as the Beach Bash. Also worth investigating is Nova Scotia's only Registered Historic Streetscape, made up of five houses built by descendants of Jonathan Locke between 1836 and 1876. The houses offer an interesting cross section of historical architecture with excellent examples of Colonial, Georgian and Victorian styles. A walking-tour guidebook is available at the Little School Museum, which displays artifacts from early settlers. 25 minutes away, Shelburne is the closest town to this cottage. A charming and historic town Shelburne is set on a truly spectacular harbour. The harbour is unspoiled by industry or shipping and is used primarily for recreational activities like sailing and boating. Shelburne hosts a number of festivals and events over the year: Lobster Festival , Founders Days, Writers Festival, the Whirligig & Weathervane Festival, and Pumpkin Festival. The Lobster Festival is usually held on the first weekend in June. The town wide yard sale is also on this same weekend. Founder’s Days take place on the third weekend in July. The Shelburne Writer’s Festival is hosted by the Osprey Arts Centre and typically takes place on the first weekend in August. The Whirligig and the Pumpkin Festivals are fall festivals that take place on the third weekend in September and first weekend in October. The Shelburne County and Dory Museums are worth visiting. When John Williams established his dory shop in 1880, it was part of a dory-building industry, which at its peak, included at least seven shops along the Shelburne waterfront. During the early part of this century the shop employed five to seven men and produced 350 dories per year. The museum has a workshop where Dories are still built to this day (albeit not in such large quantities!).

                          Originally built in 1850 by Captain George McLean, as a carriage house for the neighbouring property, this attractive cottage has been completely renovated and restored, retaining its original charm and character, with wide pine floorboards and tall baseboards. A traditional floor plan, the house features two bedrooms and a 4-piece bathroom upstairs. The large master bedroom has a queen size bed, while the second bedroom has two twin beds. Both rooms have plenty of closet space, antique dressers and views of the garden and the harbour. Downstairs is comprised of a large fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, living room and separate dining room. A curio cupboard in the dining room displays beautiful Asian inspired dishes. While in the kitchen, another traditional built-in hutch has glassware and other decorative items. Simply decorated with antiques, hooked rugs, wall hangings, and other traditional Nova Scotia handiwork the house is a delightful tribute to Nova Scotia's rich history. It is easy to imagine what it was like when its original owner - the one legged Sea Captain lived there. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I have been to the cottage and I am quite familiar with the property. Additional amenities include: 4 piece bath, bed linens provided, lawn & gardens, bicycles, in town, fridge, stove, iron & ironing board, veranda, coffee maker, kettle, close to beaches, close to grocery store, washer and dryer, books & board games, basic cable TV, garden chairs, cell phone reception, 1 queen; 2 twin. Captain McLean’s Carriage House is located in the picturesque harbour town of Shelburne on Nova Scotia’s famous Lighthouse Coast. It is exactly 100 of my steps from the front door of this delightful carriage house to the Shelburne Harbour waterfront. Shelburne Harbour is perhaps the most picturesque harbour in all of Nova Scotia. Over 16 kms long, this large, natural deep-water harbour is undeveloped and unspoiled by industry or shipping. The harbour supports a few small fishing villages, the town of Shelburne, some lobster fishing wharfs, a yacht club and a number of beautiful beaches. Across the harbour from the Carriage House is Islands Provincial Park – a protected park land of that is well treed and a favourite walk for locals. Because the cottage is located on this quiet harbour, the waterfront is suitable for launching a kayak.

Walden’s beautifully written "Anchorage Northeast: The story of one man’s quest for the unspoiled bounties of nature and their discovery on a stretch of Nova Scotian Coast."

                                  Witsend Cottage was formerly a fisherman's home in the small, isolated community of Baccaro, Nova Scotia. Named by the Spanish for the plentiful codfish in the sea, Baccaro was many things to many people. The Cold War remains of the US air force base and the radar tower, known locally as the "Bubble", are still there and visible from the cottage as is the Baccaro lighthouse. Baccaro Point, which is home for the light house and in full view of the cottage, takes lots of sea as it is open to East, West, and South winds and seas. It's a photographer's dream and a birder's special spot. With beautiful white sand Crow's Neck Beach only a five minute walk away, home to most of the breeding pairs of Piping Plovers in the region, this spot is sacred. The cottage itself has been fully renovated. Open concept now, it flows from room to room over lovely new hardwood floors. Uniquely, witsend cottage sports privacy and ocean views. A perfect spot to retreat, listen to the waves and just relax completely. There are morepictures of witsend cottage on facebook -- witsend cottage at baccaro. "Like" us there.

A walking-tour guidebook is available at the Little School Museum, which displays artifacts from early settlers. The Historic Town of Shelburne is about a 15 - 20 minute drive. A charming and historic town Shelburne is set on a truly spectacular harbour.

The Lobster Festival is usually held on the first weekend in June. The town wide yard sale is also on this same weekend. Founders Days , take place on the third weekend in July. The Whirligig , and the Pumpkin . Festivals are fall festivals that usually take place on the third weekend in September and first weekend in October. The Shelburne County and Dory Museums are worth visiting. When John Williams established his dory shop in 1880, it was part of a dory-building industry, which at its peak, included at least seven shops along the Shelburne waterfront. During the early part of this century the shop employed five to seven men and produced 350 dories per year. The museum has a workshop where Dories are still built to this day (albeit not in such large quantities!). The privateering town of Liverpool is about a 40-45 minute drive. Yarmouth is just over an hour's drive. Lunenburg , Digby and Halifax are all pleasant day trips.

                                          Jollimore Lane Cottage is a small beachfront cottage with plenty of personality! Whitewashed paneling, hardwood floors and colourful decorative pieces all add to the appeal of this tiny cottage. Bright and cheerful, with some neat vintage touches; Jollimore Lane Cottage is the perfect beach escape for a close knit family. Approximately 660 sq. ft., the main living area of this cottage is comprised of an open concept living room/dining room and adjacent kitchen. The kitchen is small, but functional with all that a family of 6 would need for a casual week by the beach. In addition to a tiny 3 piece washroom and reading nook, there are three small bedrooms. Two of them have single and double combination bunk beds that sleep two to three people comfortably. These two bedrooms have ¾ high walls that are open to the roof-line. The third small fully-enclosed bedroom has a queen size bed pushed up against the wall to maximize floor space. The reading nook off the dining room is comfortably furnished with a day bed and plenty of cushions. Outside, decks runs along the two ocean sides of the cottage, expanding the living area and taking advantage of the spectacular ocean view. Brightly painted Adirondack chairs line the deck setting the stage for an evening of star watching and storytelling on the deck. Scroll down for rates and a map of the area. Additional amenities include: no laundry facilities, fire pit, no internet, 3 piece bath (shower), fridge, stove, books & board games, veranda, coffee maker, kettle, close to beaches, close to grocery store, no TV, no telephone, cell phone reception, outside shower. Jollimore Lane Cottage is situated on a small plot of land overlooking the white sandy beaches of the Port Joli Peninsular . The "cottage" beach is a short one-minute walk down a shared raised path along the edge of tidal mudflat that empties and fills twice a day. The white sandy beach is perfect for children of all ages. Grab the sunscreen and a book, bury your toes in sand; dig a hole, build a sand castle; breathe in the fresh ocean air. At low tide the beach literally stretches for miles ... just waiting to be explored. The ecologist in you will be amazed by the abundance of shorebirds and wet-land wildlife. Terns swoop through the air and dive into the ocean, while small shorebirds scurry along the water's edge always managing to out-step the tide. The beach directly in front of the property is an "active beach" with an ever changing appearance. In recent years, the ocean has broken over a portion of the dune system and is now slowly filling the once wetland with salt water and sand. If you can manage to tear yourself away from the beach, it is just twenty minutes to Liverpool for festivals, museums, restaurants, shopping, live music and nightlife. The charming historic town of Shelburne with its beautiful harbor and award winning restaurants is only 30 minutes away. It's a 2-hour drive to Halifax International Airport and 1.5 hours to Yarmouth. Take a look at this video for a 360 view of the cottage's surroundings.
