About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our cottage is a relaxing oasis overlooking the beautiful Porter’s Lake. Located in Lawrencetown Nova Scotia, a small community known for its quiet nature and beautiful ocean beaches, our cottage acts as a home away from home.

You will find our location ideal for exploring or just staying put, depending on how the mood takes you. We are only 30-40 minutes from the big city (Halifax) or just minutes from Lawrencetown Beach.

The Eastern Shore is one of the few areas that has survived unchanged over the years, and the locals are sure to make you feel welcome, as only Maritimers can!

Our beautiful cottage offers something for the whole family, whether it be fishing, boating or swimming on the Porter’s Lake, to hiking, biking and walking the Nova Scotia trails a minute away.

We are offering our cottage for a minimum rental period of one week.

Our two bedroom cottage contains all the furnishings and appointments, including TV, VCR/DVD, stove, refrigerator and laundry facilities.

Check in after 3pm.

Check out 10am.

Hot tub is not up and running during winter months.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was the best choice to rent as our home base during our first trip to Nova Scotia. Rustic, yet comfortable, this cabin had everything we needed. My husband and I spent 7 nights here, cooking a few dinners and enjoying the sunsets from the hot tub. Morning breakfast and coffee was relaxing as we watched the fog roll off of Porters Lake. We took many day trips including visiting Fishermans Cove, Peggy's Cove, Halifax Distillary, the Maritime Museum, Murphy's Cove, Lawrencetown Beach and Burnt Coat Head to view the tide changes on Bay of Funday. Each day trip was no more than a 1.5 hour drive 1 way. That is what makes this cabin a great location to see so many things. Cape Breton was too far for us to drive (about 4.5 hours), but we are planning a separate trip in the future to visit this area. We met local musicians at the Tuesday evening open mike night at Jamiesons Irish Pub in Cole Harbor (highly recommend dinner here). We bought local lobster in Fishermans Cove and also while driving back from Murphys Cove. PEI Mussels are very cheap to buy in this area, so we purchased a few lbs. of mussels and ate them for dinner one night. Food and liquor stores nearby (no more than a 20 minute drive), just wonderful. We highly recommend renting this cabin from Blaise. His daughter Sarah manages the property for him, very quick at responding to requests. If from the US, pay through PayPal, makes the money exchange easier for the owners. Have fun. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did! ~Becky Altmann, Carter Lansing and Elvis (the adventure dog) from Easton, PA

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks. It was a great cottage to relax in and use as a base for our day trips. Blaise and Elsie were very friendly and always wanted to make sure everything was OK. The weather was cool this time of year, So we didn't use the deck or the yard much. But I can see how wonderful it would be in warmer weather. Everything was well equipped and comfortable.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay in this amazing cottage for a week and Absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The owner's Elsie and Blaise were very welcoming and made us feel at home. They had available anything you could possibly need and the cottages was far above our expectations. With a canoe at your use, bikes and a lovely hot tub, you couldn't ask for anything more. And so close to the ocean! I only wish I could have stayed longer and we will definitely be back. Also the girls both loved it.This cottage has things to do for all ages!

Love love love this place! The reviews are all amazing for a reason. The owners are kind and charming and it reflects in this rental cottage. Bring nothing other than your clothes and groceries! Everything else is here, including coffee! ;)

The water is beautiful, the neighbours are fun, and there is lots to do. There are bicycles and a canoe to use. The cabin has heat and air conditioning, Wifi, a flat screen TV with satellite, washer and dryer! It is crazy equipped.

We will definitely return one day.
