We have just had the pleasure of staying in this cottage for our 3 weeks holiday.
It was the most well equipped property we have stayed in and we have loved every minute of our time there. It is everything we expected from a traditional Atlantic Cottage. Furthermore, it had plenty of personal touches from the owner too which gave it more of a homely feel.
We have experienced all that is Nova Scotia and its wonderful people. Fern and Harvey, the owners, live next door but they are not in the least bit intrusive. They are, however, very welcoming and on hand if there is anything you need or to offer any advice on what to do in the province.
There were bikes of a rental standard available to use and Kayaks with exclusive use of the family dock. We made excellent use of both the bikes and the kayaks.
The fire pit was well used by us too. Nothing nicer than sitting by a roaring fire after a busy day with a glass of wine, a wonderful view and the " cricket sounds " as the sun sets.
This cottage, in our opinion is extremely good value for money.
We left taking wonderful memories with us and sincerely hope to return where we can see the sun rise again at the " Rise Again Cottage "

This was truly over the top as far as location, and especially accommodations. It was equipped with almost everything you have in your own home except for your food. It even had spices, and condiments in the fridge. Fresh flowers and a binder with all information on the cottage/home. Fern thought of everything including beach mat, umbrella, cooler and towels. We had shampoo, conditioner and body wash in each bath area. Beds were very comfortable. The view was spectacular and nice area for biking and walking. Brochures, travel guides and loads of entertainment items. Fern is at your beck and call if you need anything. An amazing place to spend time!

Liked best: Hard to narrow it but I'd say the feel of the cottage with beautiful art and bright colours.
Liked least: Just would recommend they cut down a large spruce tree to open the view even more to the gorgeous water.

“Quiet, cozy, serene place to stay by the salt water.”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Thanks to our dear friends Keith and Shirley Neily who invited us to stay with them, we had a wonderful two night stay. It is a tranquil place close to so many attractions on the south shore, where you can go out and explore by day. Lovely place to just chill, read a book, walk, take a paddle on the love Second Peninsula inlet if you just chose to stay put. The place is fully equipped with all that you need to entertain friends or family. Beds were comfy and the place is decorated with a lovely artist flare. I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Heather and Gary from Windsor, Nova Scotia.

“Another great family vacation at Rise Again Cottage”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our second summer staying at Rise Again Cottage. It was the perfect place for our family to stay and enjoy everything the South Shore of Nova Scotia has to offer in the summer time. The cottage is very clean, spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Fern has thought of everything that guests might need during their stay. We really enjoyed having access to the water from Fern's dock and being able to swim in the ocean and use her kayaks.
This was a lovely area to bike around and we spent time exploring the beautiful, quiet back roads that follow the shore line. Fern provides bicycles and helmets for those travellers who can't bring their own.
Mahone Bay and Lunenburg are a short drive away and offer interesting shopping and excellent coffee shops and restaurants. The grocery store is a 10 minute drive into Lunenburg. There are an amazing number of things to see and do in the area including the Lunenburg farmer's market, Bachman's beach, Hirtles beach, Sand Dollar beach, Risser's beach, the LaHave Bakery (and ferry), the Ovens Natural Park and Glimpses Theatre Troupe (Tuesday and Thursday evenings in Lunenburg) just to name a few.

“Beautiful family cottage with nice garden near the sea, close to Lunenburg”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

It is a beautifull cottage near the sea and close to Lunenburg. The cottage is very colourful decorated and well equipped with everything you need (kitchensupplies, towels, games, movies etc). The owner lives nextdoor and is very friendly.
We enjoyed spending time in the garden and on the water with the free canoe.
The cottage is close to a small sandy beach and also close to the city center of Lunenburg.
We would certainly come again!

What a perfect escape! The property was clean, well-maintained and perfectly suited for our young family of six. The Cottage was a great location to tour around the Lunenburg area. We filled our days with swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, fishing and beach time. In the evenings, we would sit on the deck or chairs and admire the view of the lake. There was plenty of fun for our whole family. Thank you Fern for making your place available for our summer vacation!
