Wow! What a pleasant surprize when we pulled up to The Scottage. The Scottage was clean both inside and out. The deck had a great view of the lake ... made even better when you were enjoying it from the hot tub! Our dogs loved the water and would run out the front door first thing in the morning to splash around and get in a swim. The cottage was located on a corner lot and thus only had one neighbour ... which was an empty building lot when we visited. It is located in Falls Lake Resort which is just in the beginning stages of development. It looks like it'll be a small sub-division in another year or two.
The interior was very nice, In addition to the usual fridge, stove and microwave there was a dishwasher, a jacuzzi bathtub, chilled bottled water dispenser and a big screen television. And it also had air conditioning which we made use of a few times during our stay.
There was also a canoe for our use. Although we didn't use it there was also a trampoline. There were plenty of board games for kids ... which we found just as entertaining for us!
We found we could explore the southern part of Nova Scotia easily from this location ... although we always had a strong desire to just sit on the deck and enjoy the Scottage life. We hit Peggy's Cove, Halifax, Wolfville and the Bay of Fundy ... as well as many of the wineries in the area ... and there are LOTS! We also spent some time at Daniels U-Pick Orchard about 15 minutes from the Scottage and came home with several bags of fresh apples and even a bag of pears.
Best experience ... sitting in the hot tub in the evening listening to the loons call and watching the star-filled sky.
No real complaints. We did find the futon fold-out bed a bit hard on the back but I suppose it would be fine for those that like an extra firm mattress.
We would definitely stay here again!
