Janet was very welcoming, helpful and professional. The cottage is clean, well-appointed and has everything you want for a happy stay including a comfortable bed, sofa and full kitchen. The cottage has a lovely view across the water, it's quiet and there is a local store a short drive away. Lots to see and do around the area, wish we could have stayed longer!

Ice House Cottage was the perfect base to explore the beauty of the South Shore. We enjoyed the beach at Bayswater, the Hubbards' Farmers Market, the Lobster Supper at the Hubbards' Shore Club, and Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, Mahone Bay and hiking at the Ovens are all within driving distance for a day trip. The cottage is clean, cozy, very well equipped with excellent view of the ocean to enjoy your morning coffee on the deck. It also has excellent Wifi. An evening stroll along the access road included chats with friendly neighbors and a seal popped up to say Hi just off shore. Janet was there for us, and very accommodating of our last minute booking. We would be happy to come back again, Thank you Janet.
