Jean is a very nice person & works hard to keep her properties up. Location on lake is beautiful. Only reason I didnt give 5 is because there was no ac (not even bedrooms), during an August heat wave.

It was an unusually hot summer. However, it is the way of the future. Someday perhaps.

Nice place. Neat, clean, comfy beds, good internet and tv, laundry. Just what I would hope for in a rental. I wasn’t expecting the property to be this big. The deck was huge. Using the boats and campfires were great. And the sunsets... oh... the...More

About the neighbourhood
On shores of peaceful lake, minutes from Peninsula of Halifax, yet miles from the noise and congestion. Within 20 kms. of downtown Halifax, easy commute on 4 lane divided highway. Great location for morning walks, as the subdivision has a loop walk that is about 5 kms. The trans canada trail is within l km of the flat (a bike rental coffee shop is a short drive away). More serious hikers may enjoy the Wooden's River / Bluff Trail hikes and explore nature on well marked trails. This property is on a peninsula jutting into a large lake, with sandy beach just steps from your private deck facing the water. Westward orientation gives you front row seats for beautiful sunsets. We have canoes and a paddle boat to help you explore the many coves and inlets of this lake.
