About the property

The Ice House - Cottage 2 - is a four star Canada Select cottage located 150 feet from the Atlantic Ocean. This little cottage has 500 square feet of living area, plus 416 square feet of deck with an ocean view, propane barbeque, and wooden deck lounges.

The interior of Cottage 2 has a Murphy bed which folds effortlessly into the wall when not in use. There is a fully equipped kitchen and three piece bath.

The building dates back to 1860 and was at one time a post office, a general store, and most recently a toy shop.

A gravel path leads down to the lower road to access the Atlantic Ocean, viewing deck and slipway.

The slipway area is an ideal water access for kayaking or for swimming when the water temperature and the tides permit.

The Cottage is equipped with cable TV, VCR, radio, CD and cassette player.

A telephone is provided with long distance by calling card only.

Located in the fishing community of Birchy Head, we are less than 10 minutes from Hubbards, and less than an hour from Halifax, Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, and Peggy's Cove, and apprx. a one hour drive from the Stanfield International Airport.Available Dates:

Just what we were expecting

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was wonderful, just as advertised. Janet and Wayne (owners) were wonderful. We found the cottage to be clean, sweet with everything we needed - BBQ, coffee maker, microwave and all essentials. Great deck, comfy inside and out.

Murphy bed was good size, but the mattress was not as comfy as some comments might lead one to believe, it was okay though.

Loved the location too, easy to explore the South-Shore area from here, beaches, towns, gas, groceries, near by and a great Saturday market too.

We would definitely stay here again!
