Escape to a cozy 2 bedroom home located on the scenic south shore of Nova Scotia, only seconds away from White Point Resort. Enjoy the resort facilities (with the purchase of a day pass) while savoring the peace & quiet available in a home located off the resort.
The house has an open concept design, with high vaulted ceilings in the living room & entry. The living room has plenty of natural light with skylights and large windows that offer lovely views of the large front lawn, where you might see deer, foxes or other wildlife.
The living room has a 42" TV with home theatre sound & a blu ray player. There's no cable TV, but you have full access to Netflix. Wi-fi internet is also available.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, waffle iron, french press coffee maker, kettle, and fully stocked spice shelf.
If you feel like cooking outside, there's a brand new propane BBQ and patio set with umbrella to enjoy on the deck.
On the main floor is a half-bathroom with washer & dryer, while the upstairs has a full bathroom
with a tub / shower combo.
The upstairs master bedroom has a queen size hand crafted sleigh bed made from curly maple, while the 2nd bedroom has a double bed.
Behind the house, you can make your way down the stone pathway to a new fire pit, where you can enjoy a fire surrounded by ferns & brightly colored fireweed (firewood included). You can also warm up to a nice fire in the wood stove on a cold night.
The house is located on a quiet country lane with only a few houses nearby. During your stay, my wife & I will be available by phone or email if you have questions or issues. There are two neighbors nearby (one across the street, one next door), but they are quiet and very respectful of your privacy. The property is located near the end of the lane, with only some seasonal cottages and one storage building (owned by the resort) farther down the road, which makes for very little traffic.TripAdvisor property ID 2483448...Read more

Additional Location Information
White point is a very small community, located next to a world class resort. With the purchase of a day pass, you can use the swimming pool, hot tub, gym, and games room. White point beach is lovely and free to use (although the water is usually cold!), and is only a 1-2 min drive from the house. The resort also rents surfing gear & offers surfing lessons. There are also spa services and a 9 hole golf course - the start of the course is within walking distance from the house!
The house is located just minutes away from 3 other world class beaches, Summerville, Beach Meadows & Carter's beach.
If you like hiking, you can take a 30 min drive to Kejimkujik national park seaside adjunct, and hike either the 5.2 km or 8.7 km trails through coastal forest, beside bogs rich with orchids, over coastal barrens, and then to the sandy beach and rocky islands often inhabited by seals. Pack a lunch and make a day trip out of it!

Talk about making a person feel right at home! When my fiance and I arrived, I went right in to see how it looked. I was taken in and soothed immediately to the sounds of both the ocean waves and the easy lounge music permeating the air. I had to pull myself away to meet the owners, who were very pleasant and helpful. They had maps already printed out for the local beaches, menus for restaurants, and showed us through formally. The whole cottage is warm and inviting. It really felt like a home away from home, or heaven in a cottage, only more relaxing! I am looking forward to booking in a full week for the next get-away!
