Photos and Description of the Darnley vacation cottage rental

Holiday in a 30 x 32 foot, open plan, beautifully-equipped, 3-bedroom cottage on one of Canada’s best beaches. Enjoy the large living/dining/kitchen area where you cook, eat and play games together. Fridge, stove, dishwasher, micro, toaster, coffee maker etc., Langostino pots, lobster pot, Blue Willow dishes and a large oak table. Electric baseboard heat.

Listen to the waves in bed at night. Sleeps 6. The Master Bedroom is downstairs off a full, 4-piece bathroom with washer and dryer. Hot water shower and long clothesline outside. The two upstairs bedrooms (one Queen/one double, four-poster bed) have roof windows and ocean views. All rooms have large closets, large dressers, quality mattresses and linens.

Sit in the shade on the north deck or in full sun on the east deck with a stunning views to MacKay Pond and “Grandfather Dune” on the beach. Lots of quality patio furniture with loungers for tanning.

Walk along the shore after dinner with a glass in your hand. Enjoy the sun setting over the water and the off-shore islands to the west. Watch the sun and moon rise over the water. Deeply relax in a barefoot life. Salt breezes and sea gulls make your day a memorable one. Gather shells.

With casual, elegant comfort, this spacious cottage is where memories are made. Relax with a movie or concert on DVD. Listen to a large collection of folk, jazz, rock and classical music on CD. Read in peace and quiet. Comfortable beds and furniture
