St. Margaret’s Bay Cottage Rentals

Some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in all of North America are around St. Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia, often called the Bluenose Coast after the famed schooner featured on Canada’s 10-cent coin. St. Margaret’s Bay cottage rentals offer a home away from home surrounded by some of the worlds' most breathtaking vistas. Bike around the bay, go whale watching or just kick back and relax in your own private space on Canada’s breathtaking East Coast.

The Charm of St. Margaret’s Bay Cottage Rentals

St. Margaret's Bay vacation rentals offer something that can be hard to find in today’s fast-paced world: a chance to step back in time in a place that encourages visitors to relax and enjoy the beauty. Consider planning a family vacation to Canada’s East Coast sometime soon to experience the following wonders, and many others.

The Changing Seascape of St. Margaret's Bay Tides

A fun family activity at St. Margaret's Bay happens thanks to the changing nature of the ocean. The tides in the bay are high, rising and falling twice daily, linked to the lunar cycle. When the St. Margaret’s Bay tides are low, visitors can walk on the bottom of the bay, finding seashells and, in the puddles and pools left behind, even glimpsing some sea life. When the tides are high, it is the perfect time for sea kayaks or splashing, canoes or cavorting along the beach.

Hike the Beautiful St. Margaret’s Bay Trail

Hiking the length of the St. Margaret’s Bay Trail is tremendously popular with visitors staying in vacation rentals in the area. The 33-kilometre route was once a railway line that connected the small fishing villages and towns around the bay with the big city of Halifax. The rail lines are now long gone, and the land has been converted into a world-class hiking trail. Walk, bike or cross-country ski all the way around the gorgeous bay, visiting each of the towns you encounter. Rent bikes at the Train Station Bike & Bean in Tantallon and head through pretty forests and past incredible ocean views and fields of wildflowers.

Stop by Pretty Peggy’s Cove

Less than 50 kilometres south of the thriving city of Halifax, at the heart of this picturesque region, is the town of Peggy’s Cove. St. Margaret’s Bay vacation rentals put visitors close to its iconic lighthouse, perched out on the granite rocks, forever vigilant and looking out over the crashing waves. The pretty red-and-white Peggy’s Point Lighthouse is the main reason Peggy’s Cove is so popular. Part of the scenic Lighthouse Trail drive, it is among the world's most photographed lighthouses.

This stretch of coastline was carved by glaciers millions of years ago, but today it is among the most beloved vacation destinations in the province. The village has many charming shops and incredible seafood restaurants. Don’t leave without trying the fresh chowder and the St. Margaret’s Bay haddock.
