Idyllic Oceanfront Cottage, Near Peggy's Cove!

Bedrooms 2
Space 801 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedroom + Sofa bed, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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. New for 2018- New bedroom suite with full bath and new Laundry Room, a dishwasher and new kitchen cabinets!

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 has free Wi Fi internet and cable TV. New Master Suite 2018. New Laundry area 2018.

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 4-6 people, but there are a couple of beds in the unfinished attic.

Please note Nova Scotia and Canada tax of 15%. Pet fee $75/pet. PRICES ARE IN USD. If you wish to pay in $CDN, let me know and we will figure out a conversion rate for that time.

About Morry El-Badry

I love this cottage which I have owned and cared for for 27 years. So far, every renter has also loved this property. I have excellent support staff there.

Morry El-Badry purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Morry El-Badry chose Prospect

This location is stunning, and Nova Scotia is very scenic, with very friendly people.

What makes this cottage unique

The view is spectacular, and miles of undeveloped scenic coastline abut the cottage. The cottage is in excellent shape and is quite cozy and charming. Nearby Halifax offer a big city atmosphere, but you would feel like you are in a totally separate world while at the cottage.

We loved Prospect!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this wonderful cottage in the tiny little fishing village of Prospect. We loved eveything about it; the location, the cottage, the town. It was an easy drive to get to Peggy's Cove and into Halifax. The weather was spectacular. We bought lobsters at Ryers in Indian Harbor and brought them back to cook at the cottage on a couple of nights. We also dined at Rhubarb which was fantastic. We walked out on the bluffs everyday - a great hike and scenery is to die for!

All & all; the cottage could not have been more perfect. Very clean and well kept with everything we needed. Thanks again Morry for a wonderful, memorable vacation; our 1st to Nova Scotia, but we will return!

What a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this cottage for a week this July! The views were honestly breath-taking and I couldn't believe the amazing hiking we were able to do just outside our doorstep! We've been to coastal Ireland before and this really reminded me of it! Besides the terrific views, this cottage was clean, cozy and had everything one needed for a great vacation. We loved sitting outside on the beautiful deck and it was also handy having a nice big tv and wifi if we wanted to relax inside. I would definitely return to this cottage if I were ever to visit Nova Scotia again.

Adorable little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was as expected and we didn't realize all the awesome walking/hiking that is right in the backyard! It appeared to be some sort of a public park because people parked along the road that the house is on to walk and explore the area, and it was a nice way to get in some exercise every morning. The house has a great location for exploring NS. About a 30 minute drive from Halifax where we visited several local breweries and the water front, 30 minutes from Peggy's Cove (I highly recommend eating at Rhubarb in Indian Harbour which is just past Peggy's Cove), 1 hr 20 minutes from Lunenberg where we did a sailing tour, 1 hr from Grand Pre and Annapolis Valley where there are lots of great vineyards to visit, 2 hrs from Kejimkujik National Park, etc. But we loved the views from the house and had a great time.

Amazing spot!

Peaceful retreat with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is comfortable for a couple. The location is great! The surrounding views are beautiful, and it is wonderful to be able to walk out the door and enjoy a morning hike. Communication with host is good.

This place is a little piece of heaven!

  • 4 of 5

Spent the first week of June 2017 here. The cottage is rustic but clean and comfortable. If you are looking for the Ritz this one is not for you. This cottage is comfortable for two people. The views are absolutely breathtaking!! We would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Nova Scotia.

Halifax is a major international city with everything imaginable, and is only 20 minutes away. But, the cottage is on breathtaking oceanfront and feels a world away!
