“The Boat House is a little piece of paradise on the shores of St. Margaret’s Bay. The tasteful interior of the little house is designed with lots of natural wood and makes it impossible not to relax. From the private deck you can take in the stunning views and almost touch the water during high tide. We were not able to meet the hosts due to the current public health situation, but even by e-mail/messaging they are great communicators and arranged for everything we needed during our stay. The hand-written booklet in the kitchen contains all you need to know about the house and things nearby. We came from Halifax on bicycles for the weekend and highly recommend this mode of travel. Most of the trip can be made on the old railway line turned into a trail. Provincially owned trails outside of parks are still open to the public. The Boat House is about 3 km away from the trail.”
Our oceanfront home is located on a quiet private road on pristine St. Margaret’s Bay. We are only 15 minutes to famous Peggy’s Cove and 30 minutes to Halifax.
“Susan's place is exactly as described - a beautiful view to come home to every day, and thoughtful amenities. This is definitely a home away from home, conveniently located to explore Halifax, Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg. My grandma, infant son and I enjoyed a lovely week here - we highly recommend!”
Our home is close to iconic Peggy's Cove and 50 km from Halifax. In our area we have spectacular ocean hiking trails, a variety of great restaurants, gift shops and art galleries. We are situated on a beautiful, small, private beach. You’ll love the beautiful ocean scenery, lovely gardens, view of the Bay from your bedroom deck, sounds of the ocean and warm Maritime hospitality. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
“Len and Marilyn are so lucky to live in such a wonderful and idyllic place and give us the chance to experience living there for a short while by booking their air bnb. I would highly recommend staying there! Len and Marilyn were very welcoming and kind, even made me coffee in the morning and were very helpful at any time. The airbnb bedroom and private bathroom are upstairs and are decorated very lovely and are very clean too. The whole house is wooden which makes you feel at home in an instant and the bed was the most comfortable and cozy bed I've ever slept in (without exaggerating). Very comfortable mattress and the linens were so soft and you can even see the sea from your bed and fall asleep with the sound of the waves. I got up in the morning, walked a couple of steps from my bed on the own little balcony and was able to take in the sea breeze, was greeted by a kolibri looking at me and there was a squirrel sitting up in the tree, having breakfast . They have a lovely garden with lots of flowers and you can take a short walk through it to get down to their private dock and take a swim from there. (Cold but worth it). I mean where do you get the luxury of a private dock / beach (when the tide is low ) and a bedroom with such a view in a hotel without paying hundreds of dollars? You don't. And you wouldn't have the privacy and that familial atmosphere either. I could go on and on and write a book about it because literally this is a place where I'd imagine authors to be able to calm down and get inspired. When I sent some pictures to my friends they said it looks like the scenery of a Nicolas Sparks movie and that's how you could put it. Probably the reason why this might sound tacky to the outside but you have to stay there to see / feel it yourself. Oh and you're very close to Peggy's Cove of course, close to Halifax, there's nice places to eat at in the area (there's a folder in the room with lots of tips) and they have a darn cute house pig and dog. Dear Lean and Marilyn, thanks again for the stay and please excuse my romanticizing short-novel. Carolina”
