About Jeannette Grude

I have lived in many provinces across Canada and visited many countries and loved them all. When I arrived in Nova Scotia about 30 ago I had a very intense feeling that I really belonged here. Coming from Norwegian roots I can relate well to this maritime province.

Jeannette Grude purchased this house in 1999

Why Jeannette Grude chose Halifax

I have enjoyed living in this home for 15 years. From the moment I stepped into the yard i knew that this place was special. It exudes a calming and peaceful vibe.

This is meant to be shared. I want everyone to experience this energy and the joy that comes with being here.

What makes this house unique

I feel very privileged to live so close to the ocean. But Nova Scotia is so much more than the ocean that surrounds it almost completely. Each part of the province offers something very unique......the lushness of the Annapolis valley and it's orchards and lakes; the ruggedness, large surf and quaint fishing villages of the eastern shore; the warm ocean, great beaches and farms of the north shore; and the great sailing and historic homes of sea captains of the south shore.

a quiet oasis only minutes from Halifax....

  • 5 of 5

cannot say enough good descriptors of this home. It is a beautiful well stocked oasis on a stunning lake front. Its stylish, well loved and well cared for.....this is the full package. My husband and I stayed there for a week--and didn't want to leave. The front door is steps from the water with a magnificent view lending itself to early am calm and an eventual gorgeous sunset. There is also a front and side lawn with a great play area which occupied two preschoolers as well as a huge deck for eating all of your meals outside while the children play. At days end, you can go down to the dock, watch the sun go down and count your blessings for this experience. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay for any age group including young families; grandparents or even younger people who want to enjoy the outside yet be minutes from all that Halifax as to offer. It would make a great honeymoon destination. store, gas bar and liquor store are all close by and accessible. This is eastern Canada with all of its charm at its very best. The owner outdoes herself in making you her house into your home. Give it all the STARS!

A memorable vacation and a great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The lake is lovely with pretty sunsets over the water. It was easy to launch our boat and Jeannette's kayaks and we could jump into the lake right off the dock. The surrounding area is well worth exploring, full of lakes and parks and trails. There are two good restaurants nearby and a large grocery and pharmacy as well. The airport is near and it's just 25 minutes to downtown Halifax. Easy to access, close to the road and yet it is quiet and private. The house is small but the kitchen, deck, dock and grounds are spacious. The air conditioning was good and Jeannette was readily available when we needed her. She refunded our sizeable deposit promptly.

Beautiful lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great stay at this home. The property is gorgeous and very private. Our kids (6 and 4) swam in the lake and we also enjoyed the kayaks that were available. The sauna was an added bonus. The home came supplied with everything we needed from towels to condiments to laundry facilities. The location was nice as we could zip into town in 20 minutes, or just head 5 min up the road to the grocery store. We would definitely consider staying here again!
