Floor to ceiling windows and a large deck complete with garden furniture and a BBQ, expands the living space outside. Breathe the sea air and soak in the natural beauty that surrounds the cottage. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the many moods of the Atlantic Ocean. Utterly private, yet it is easily accessible from Lockeport, the cottage overlooks a pristine and beautiful expanse of water, islands and coves in an inner coastal bay. Use it as a base to explore the area - there are several long white sandy beaches within a 15 minute drive. Go clamming right by the house; walk to the many nearby swimming spots. Cross the inlet by kayak to the sandbar directly opposite the cottage and walk to the magnificent and secluded three mile long Black Head beach. There are 3 kayaks at the cottage - 2 singles and 1 double. Or, simply sit back and relax in your own little piece of Canadian wilderness! Additional amenities include: 4 piece bath, iron & ironing board, selection of movies, lobster pot, TV for movie viewing only, cd player, fridge, stove, books & board games, coffee maker, kettle, close to beaches, kayak(s), washer and dryer, no TV, no telephone.More

5 of us stayed while we were in quarantine and it was perfect. Lots of space to roam the property, we hardly ever saw anyone except the odd person clamming, or driving a truck down the road. The accommodations were simple but very comfortable, loved...More

It's the third time I've stayed in this snug little house on its very own bay. The cottage is like a ship on the sandy, tidal lake -- a short kayak trip from the crashing ocean beach at Hemeons Head, and along a strip of...More
