About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This cottage is in a gorgeous location. It sits on a granite bluff overlooking the ocean, with greater than 180 degrees of spectacular water views. It is on 3 acres, and is the only home on the ocean side of the road, insuring privacy and open views. This is prime Nova Scotia ocean frontage. The views are unsurpassed.

You would be at a peaceful oceanfront retreat, but Halifax, a major international city is only 20 minutes away! Prospect is also about 10 miles from the major tourist destination of Peggy's Cove, which is a quaint oceanfront village, with a much visited lighthouse on a granite coast. Prospect is an oceanfront fishing village. The village is fairly quiet, but the people are very friendly and can share their way of life with you. Waterfront recreation abounds with everything from sea kayaking to sailing, water skiing, motor boating, fishing and whale watching. There is a two mile stretch of undeveloped public land ('crown land', as it is nominally owned by the queen of England) right next to the cottage that is a fabulous place to walk, run mountain bike or hike. The coast is spectacular to drive along with many picturesque villages such as Peggy's Cove, Lununberg, Mahone Bay, and Chester nearby. Restaurants are plentiful, with delicious seafood. Halifax is a major international city and has first class activities and attractions, including Celtic music, professional sports and entertainment, the Citadel fortress, a charming waterfront, and an excellent nightlife.

This is a simple, but neat and comfortable cottage with all the basic amenities, and then some, on a spectacular location. I constantly update/upgrade it. It now has free Wi Fi internet and cable TV. New mattress and paint for 2013. If you are looking for 5-star resort accommodations, this is not for you! But if you want to be surrounded by gorgeous oceanfront in your private getaway, while still having a major international city nearby, you will be very happy. The cottage is best for 2 people, but there is a sleeper sofa in the living room, and a couple of beds in the unfinished, but amazingly neat and clean attic.

Please note Nova Scotia and Canada tax of 15%. Pet fee $75/pet. PRICES ARE IN USD, but I have reduced my rates about 10% to reflect the weakening of the $CDN!
