Photos and Description of the West Dover vacation house rental

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Sunrise at Sol Point.

We have been awarded a 4 1/2 star rating by CanadaSelect for a superior accomodations.

Located on one of the most scenic stretches of coastline in the Maritimes, Sunrise at Sol Point will exceed your expectations in both comfort and incredible bold ocean views.

This converted and fully renovated former fish plant is perched on a cliff directly on the edge of the ocean. So close to the water is the house that at high tide the water actually laps the foundation piers the house sits on. It is located in the authentic working fishing village of West Dover just 3 miles from Peggy's Cove.

The house borders the Peggy's Cove preservation area that offers unspoiled beauty. There are no houses from here to the village of Peggy's Cove and the coastline has been protected from any future development.

A major Hollywood motion picture 'The weight of water' with Sean Penn was filmed here, including some scenes right inside the old boathouse still standing on our property.

The property is located down a long driveway off a dead end road away from all traffic. The only passers by you will see are the local fishermen who still go out every day in their boats to check their lobster traps and fish nets set just off the coast. These fishing boats steam by just 30-60 feet from the living room windows.

The house is large and has 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There are oak hardwood floors throughout.

All the bedrooms have queen size beds. There are no stairs to climb as all the rooms are on the same level.

The kitchen is well layed out and roomy. The counters are finished with granite. All cooking utensils are supplied and you will be able to prepare any meal from frozen dinners to locally caught lobsters.

There is a very large oak table that provides comfortable seating for 8 in the dining part of the livingroom.

The living/dining room which is open to the kitchen is huge. Almost 1,000 square feet in size with a 17 foot high vaulted ceiling surrounded on 3 sides by large windows. This gives you the feeling of living outdoors. The view covers 270 degrees of nothing but water, un-inhabited islands and breaking waves in the distance.

The only other homes you can see from inside ore the ones across the harbour in East Dover close to a mile away. Enjoy the panoramic ocean views while seated in the comfortable living room furniture. There are even super soft blankets to cuddle up in if it gets cool.
