Situated on 3 private acres, Sea Star Cottage is a charming Nova Scotia vacation home in the picturesque fishing village of Port Mouton. Set back from the road and screened by mature trees and bushes the large garden is private and safe for little ones to play. Sunlight streams in through the windows giving this Nova Scotia cottage a bright and cheerful atmosphere. Antique furnishing and modern decor have been tastefully combined to create an attractive family friendly home that appeals to both adult and child alike. The main floor features a living room, dining room, study, 3-piece bathroom and a spacious eat-in kitchen. The study is bursting with interesting books and games, while the living room is adorned with a fascinating collection of local maps and sea charts.

Set back from the road and screened by mature trees and bushes the large garden is private and safe for little ones to play. Sunlight streams in through the windows giving this Nova Scotia cottage a bright and cheerful atmosphere. Antique furnishing and modern decor have been tastefully combined to create an attractive family friendly home that appeals to both adult and child alike. The main floor features a living room, dining room, study, 3-piece bathroom and a spacious eat-in kitchen. The study is bursting with interesting books and games, while the living room is adorned with a fascinating collection of local maps and sea charts. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 2 with double beds and the other with a queen size bed. Two of the rooms have adjoining private 3-piece bathrooms. The deck; complete with gas BBQ and lawn chairs extends the living area and provides a vantage point to enjoy the pastoral view: a fenced pasture that is home to a family of friendly sheep. There is a path that leads through the pasture and onto a wooded track that leads to a private rocky shoreline with a panoramic view of Port Mouton Bay and its many islands. With rolled beach stones and large granite boulders, the waterfront is just waiting to be explored. Around ever bend is a new adventure and a new ocean view. A short walk down the road brings you to Carter's Beach, one of the jewels of Nova Scotia's South Shore, with its triple crescents of fine white sand ringed by dunes and wrapped around the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Port Mouton Harbor. The unsurpassed natural beauty of Port Mouton has led Parks Canada to preserve its headlands as a national wilderness area containing two pristine beaches. The eastern entrance to the national park is within easy hiking distance of Sea Star Cottage. For more hiking, head to Kejimkujik National Park's Seaside Adjunct wilderness where you will find noisy seals basking on the rocks and a multitude of sea birds overhead. So for a holiday that involves around going to the beach, enjoying a leisurely evening meal, playing games around the kitchen table and exploring the local area, Sea Star Cottage offers all that and more! Additional amenities include: iron & ironing board, selection of movies, lawn & gardens, bicycles, TV for movie viewing only, cd player, 3 piece bath (shower), fridge, stove, books & board games, 3 piece bath (bath), coffee maker, kettle, close to beaches, close to grocery store, washer and dryer, pack 'n play crib, cell phone reception, sheep on site.More
