We had such a great time in this house! It was perfect! It had a lot of space and everything we needed. It was quiet, calm and very luminous. The view was beautiful and we had nice sunsets and sunrises. We walked in the bay at low tide... We went far!

We went to the market, to the lavender field, to the beaches nearby, to see the big tides at Five Islands and the tidal bore, to the railway dining car...

We had a wonderful time in this fantastic house!

Book this house for a slice of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a slice of Heaven on Earth, book this house! It is a pristine property on the quiet shores of the Northumberland Strait in a warm and welcoming community. Our multi-generational family of 7 had plenty of room to enjoy our privacy or gather for dinner and fun on the main floor with spectacular views of the water and Cape John. We would go back in a heartbeat. Be warned: a week is not enough if you are traveling from New England! Best dinner: fresh salmon and mussels from Billy's Seafood in St. John on the drive in. 2nd best dinner: Jo Dearing's Southern Smokehouse BBQ in River John. Best evening excursion: sunset sea kayaking with Coastal Spirits and the chance to photograph the harbor seals. Best breakfast: strawberry pancakes made with Pick-Your-Own berries in River John. Best lazy day: hunting for driftwood and rocks and swimming at low tide. Best souvenirs: wool blankets and dryer balls from Lismore Sheep Farm. Best beer: Tatamagouche Brewing Co. Best wine: Jost Vineyards. Added adventures: day trips to PEI, Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Hall's Harbour, and Pictou. Thank you, Nic, for sharing your house with us. We loved Nova Scotia!
