Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week and felt instantly at home at this well equipped cottage. Ethel was very welcoming and the perfect host:)

Great location and great for families, she has thought of everything...we didn't get to use a lot of the amenities this time around maybe next time.

Thanks again for an amazing week!

Ethel was so very welcoming and accomodating. There was so much at our disposal that we regretted not having the time to take advantage of it all!

We plan on coming back another time and will hopefully stay here again.

Highly recommend!!

Terrific Location , Fantastic Hostess, Some Mechanical Noise.

  • 4 of 5

The location is terrifc, and the hostess was very pleasant and accommodating. The flat is generally clean and has just about everything you need other than your food. Wireless internet speed is decent, but there is no satellite or cable TV service.

The only issue I had was related to noise. The hostess is perfectly quiet.... The problem was the water system. The property is on well water, so pumps are required to supply water to the house as well as drain waste water. These pumps happen to be just on the other side of a hallow door outside the bedrooms, and can be disruptive in the evening if someone in the house uses water. Other than that I had no reason to complain.

Recommended, particularly if you are not bothered by some noise when sleeping.

The beaches, the space, the welcoming rooms. Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We were NOT disappointed with our choice or our stay with Ethel. The space is larger than we anticipated, well stocked with everything needed to cook, clean, and relax. We were impressed with the beach themed decorations throughout the rooms. The location is convenient for many day trips east or west, south shore shopping, beach visits. Halifax and Peggy's Cove are within easy reach also. We can heartily recommend this Black Point property to others, and would not hesitate to return there--tho it is a long hike from Wisconsin !

Excellent place - will book again for next visit back to Halifax!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Exactly what we were looking for. Close to the ocean and beaches and shoreline views. Coffee each morning on the beach was beautiful. We are a family of four that were there for 6 nights Highly recommend this place - especially if you have children but also perfect for a couple. Ethel was so professional and made you feel like you were part of her family. She was very accommodating and also had all kinds of things to help make your stay enjoyable. She was even able to provide a tent trailer for 4 members of our family that ran into well issues at their own Halifax home so came to stay with us for a few days. The beach flat had all necessities needed - right down to beach toys for our 'unplanned' young family members that joined us!

Lovely beach house perfectly situated and with everything you could possibly need!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful week at Ethel's beach house. Although we didn't get to meet her in person, we felt very welcome from the get go and she was in touch constantly to check up on our stay and whether we needed anything.

The home is located in a beautiful spot, 40 minutes to Halifax in one direction and 40 minutes to Lunenburg in the other. Both are absolutely lovely cities and well worth a visit each too.

The home is well provisioned with everything you could possibly need and more! It was clean, cool and spacious. We loved having Netflix too!

Our kids enjoyed playing on the play/swing set in the backyard and spent all their spare moments there.

We would love to come back again one day...

Thank you Ethel and family, it was a perfect holiday.

Ben, Belinda and family
