Make yourself at home in the cozy guest room of our newly renovated 1880s Cape home on the South Shore of Nova Scotia! Close to great beaches for surfing, swimming and walking, art studios, antique shops, the famous LaHave Bakery and much more.
The Shore House is a lovely old home set off the road but with a great ocean view. We live in a quiet and private spot that we love for it's south-facing garden and woodland behind. Michael has been renovating the house for the past two years so it has a unique and - we hope - warm feel to it.
The guest room is upstairs and can host 1-3 people as it has a double bed and a single bed, as well as a large desk and a tv to stream programmes to if you like (no 'regular'/cable tv stations though). The bathroom is downstairs so you need to be comfortable navigating stairs to use this house.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the whole house, including the kitchen, living room, fire pit and wood stove (we provide firewood), the sunny front deck, barbecue and laundry facilities. We will provide clean towels and bedlinen. We are happy to lend three bicycles to you, and to point you in the direction of some enjoyable bike rides. We also have wifi, and a great library and vinyl collection that you can investigate.
Interaction with guests
Michael and I are pretty social people and look forward to welcoming guests into our home. Friends stop by fairly frequently, and you are welcome to join in. We love living here and talking about living here, so we are very happy to share what we know about travelling and eating in Nova Scotia.
Other things to note
We live with a friendly and adventurous short-haired cat named George. He ranges free but enjoys the wood stove and some serious petting.
Be nice to George the Cat.
