Our four bedroom, plus loft, lakefront cottage is situated in a wooded area in rural Nova Scotia. Quiet and serene with beautiful sunset views. Sleeps up to 12 and all you need to bring is a toothbrush.

The space

A large cottage, great for multi family gatherings. Sleeps up to 12 adults. Four bedrooms and a large loft with additional sleeping area. Large wraparound deck for al fresco dining. Towels and bed linens are included, as are paper towel and toilet paper.

Guest access

There is a barbecue on the deck available for use, a canoe, life jackets and a selection of floaties in the basement. The driveway goes all the way down to the lake. If you want to bring your boat along, it's a perfect place to launch.

Our stay at Tamara's Crystal Cottage was amazing! It is a very idyllic setting, and very spacious for a large group of people. Tamara was very helpful and provided directions, and tips about the area so that we were prepared for our vacation. It is important to know the cottage is in a very secluded setting. There is limited cellular reception, and future people who are staying there should be aware to pick up groceries beforehand! Overall, lovely relaxing spot and a great, helpful host!

The cottage is lovely and the lake is stunning, warm, and great for swimming. Very private and quiet location makes it feel like your own private lake. Lots of space in the cabin made it a perfect spot for our multi-family vacation, and our kids loved playing on the beach and swimming with the floaty toys. Tamara is a great host, replies quickly and very helpful. We would happily stay again!

Tamara met us at the cottage and gave us the tour. It is a lovely cottage. Very clean. Having a washer and dryer on site was a perk. The description was accurate. We suggest you pick up any food you want on the way since there is only one convenience store nearby and supplies are limited. The lake is crystal clear and the sunsets are breathtaking! We also enjoyed the loon that was on the lake in front of the cottage.

Tamara was a lovely host - very accommodating and flexible. She met us on Friday night and helped us find our way to the cottage (no easy feat!) and was easily accessible if we needed her. The cottage itself was great for our purposes, and had all of the amenities listed. The dogs loved the woods surrounding the cottage! The private beach, floaties, and canoe made our weekend by the surprisingly warm and clear lake incredibly relaxing and quiet. Recommend if you're looking for a secluded cottage weekend away from it all!
