An hour away from the hustle and bustle of the capital city of Halifax, on a quiet lake sits the Winnett House. Let this turn of the century, bright country cottage serve as the canvas for your getaway vacation. Professionally curated and cleaned, meticulously maintained and detailed, cozy and comfortable. This vacation rental has everything you need to kick back, relax and enjoy. Just bring your loved ones, a few essentials and let the memories start making themselves.

The space
The main focal point of the cottage is the huge east facing sunroom, surrounded by windows. Enjoy 180 degree lake views, early morning sun and coffee beside the fireplace. With a large dining room and games table, couch, dart board and fireplace, evening activities also seem to migrate to this stunning room. When you’re at the Winnett House you should feel like you just put on your favourite sweater, and it’s Sunday morning.

The bedrooms are decorated with fresh 100% cotton linens, crisp and clean with comfortable beds. The cottage is big enough that everyone can find their own corner when needed.

The cottage can host many different groups from a skiers vacation, to a family getaway, to a romantic weekend for 2. Even a girls knitting weekend, with all kinds of reasons for a visit I can confidently say everyone that has stayed has thoroughly enjoyed the space.

The guidebook that is made available after booking has recommended locations for day trips, restaurants, shopping, antique hunting, beaches, hiking trails and lots of other activities in the area for longer stays. Main attractions include the ski hill in the winter, which is only a five minute drive. The lake in the summer, which is a minute and a half walk from the front door.

Thanks again for considering The Winnett House for your next getaway!

Guest access
Guests have full access to the house aside from the basement and a locked room off of the kitchen.

Linens, towels, stocked kitchen, tea,coffee,spices. All you need is your suitcase and groceries.

Other things to note
The cottage has high speed/unlimited wifi.

The dreamy bed in the first photo is in the sunroom. It is a “day bed”, so no enclosed walls. Amazing morning view overlooking the lake!

Hi I’m Mamie and I am mainly involved with the Airbnb community as a host. I love the platform, and it has changed my life as it has created a way for me to subsidize my full time job earnings so I can stay home in rural Nova Scotia to be near my family. If you are looking at my listing, thank you in advance for considering the Winnett House!
