Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage With Stunning Ocean Views

Driftwood has two personalities. The original 90 year old home has been renovated to now include a family/ games/ TV room with a double sofa bed and other comfortable seating. Off this room you will find double and single bedrooms and a full shower room. There is also a laundry/mud room. From the family room you enter the modern addition of the Great Room (living, dining, kitchen)with a cathedral ceiling, wood burning fireplace and French doors leading to a large deck which is only 30 yards from the ocean. It has Muskoka chairs and a picnic table. The cottage is suitable for a maximum of 6 (adults and children)

Back inside, admire the new fully equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting area before heading upstairs to the Master en suite bedroom with a Queen size bed and a stunning view of Mahone Bay. There is a private deck for morning coffee or sunset cocktails overlooking the ocean.

Outside there are extensive lawns and a large patio, with a round table, stump stools, Adirondack chairs, and a Weber gas BBQ. A fire pit and garden are also found here.The back of the property is wooded. We also have a small barn on the property.

On the way to Blandford village you will find and a convenience store/cafe, The Deck which serves a great clam chowder. Annie White is the proprietor. Tell her where you are staying: Driftwood was once her family home.
