My goodness. Where to begin?

Our stay at the "Rustic Retreat" in Feltzen South was simply blissful. Husband, 16-year old daughter and I traveled here and stayed for a week. It was just LOVELY.

The great thing about the location of the cottage is that it is 20 mins from Lunenburg, 17 mins from LaHave, 20 mins to Mahone Bay, 3 minutes to "The Ovens" park. You are moments away from a lobster dinner, shopping, entertainment or a hike, but you get to retreat to the astonishing silence and quiet of the cottage. Just you and the ocean.

The cottage is located on a beautiful, rugged stretch of beach that has loads of glorious sea-glass (smooth, beautiful sea jewels!), seashells and smooth, flat rocks, perfect treasures. The cottage overlooks the ocean and is a 15 second walk from front door, across a narrow road and down the rocks to the sand. It feels like a private beach.

One morning while eating breakfast, overlooking the sea, the Bluenose II came into sight! We scampered down to the beach in our PJs to watch it unfurl its sails and tack ... right along Feltzen South!

The cottage itself is a treat. There is NOTHING our lovely host NancyLee didn't provide or think of. We entered the cottage and were completely floored at the fully stocked kitchen, the blankets, comforters, pillows and sheets provided for the rooms, plus a ton of food items (staples, sundries) that were there for us. The rooms are small and very cozy... one bed is a little rickety, (but comfy!) the others are solid and comfortable!

There are many treasures located within the cottage, from a terrific assortment of DVDs (you have terrific taste in film, NancyLee!) to a record player and multiple classic albums (got my retro on big-time!)... bug spray, towels, slippers, novels, a concertina... I'm telling you, I've never been to a rental that provides so much to see/look at/enjoy!

Couldn't believe it when we walked in to find a personalized note sitting on a basket of goodies including everything from oven mitts to brand new toothbrushes inviting us to use anything we needed. SO lovely!!!!

The sunsets (and sunrises) were simply glorious. The neighbours were super-friendly as well, and were unobtrusive (and silent at night)... The stars were unbelievable.

I wholeheartedly recommend the cottage to others. We cannot wait to return.
