Enjoy our charming cottage with direct ocean frontage on a gorgeous sandy beach! Located in the La Have Islands on Nova Scotia's South Shore - just 1.5 hours from Halifax, 20 minutes to Bridgewater, and 30 minutes to Lunenburg.

The space
The sound of the ocean's waves crashing right in front of this pine-framed getaway will sooth the senses. Step off the deck and enjoy the tranquility of walking on two miles of white sandy beach and relax as you breathe the fresh Atlantic Ocean air.

The Cottage is open concept with stunning windowed cathedral ceilings. The upper balcony's view includes a panoramic view of Crescent Beach and Green Bay and breathtaking sunsets over the water.

The varied and abundant wildlife can be quietly observed from the cottage balconies and windows. Deer often browse right outside the cottage and sea ducks are only a few feet away at high tide.

Chalet-style with two individual loft spaces upstairs. The bigger loft area has one twin and one double bed. The smaller loft area has a queen-size bed and its own private upper balcony overlooking the sparkling waters of Green Bay. This is a rare and secluded property - private but close to many attractions on Nova Scotia's South Shore.

Fully furnished with comfy furnishings and Nova Scotia antiques. The kitchen is equipped with fridge, stovetop (no oven), microwave, coffee maker and all dishware and cooking utensils. There is an indoor propane fireplace as well as a DVD player and satellite TV. All towels and linens are provided. There is also a propane BBQ and a firepit for bonfires overlooking the water.

This property is located with great kayaking in the La Have islands - right outside your door! There are 1 child and 2 adult sea kayaks available (and life jackets) for your use.

4 night minimum stay required. Rate is $230 CDN per night (no tax) during high season.

Guest access
Please enjoy our two decks and the sandy beach (Little Crescent Beach) directly in front of the cottage. Crescent Beach, which is a gorgeous 1.5 mile long beach, is just a short walk away and is visible from our cottage as well. We have 200 feet of direct ocean frontage and a beautiful treed lot behind the cottage. There is one seasonal cottage on the lot beside ours, which is sometimes occupied. Otherwise, there are no visible neighbours.

Other things to note
Tides/Access:
The most unique thing about this cottage is that you can't drive there at high tide. At high tide, you have to park at the end of the beach and walk about 250 metres to our cottage. You can access our driveway at mid to low tide. It's an amazing feature because when it's high tide, you feel like you are on your own private island getaway with the waves crashing below you on the rocks! It's amazing and we love it!! It just requires some planning on when you can drive in and out. We recommend downloading the tide forecast app for Riverport/La Have River on your device. (URL HIDDEN)

Internet:
The cottage's Internet is provided through Eastlink's "Rural Connect" service. It works fine for e-mail and general Web browsing, but not for video streaming, gaming, etc. Occasionally, service can be unreliable - this is mainly a concern if you are planning to work from the cottage.

Location

Crescent Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada

Crescent Beach is a unique community with many summer homes and year-round residents. There are many artists, shops and little cafes just a short drive away. We get our groceries in Bridgewater, which is the main commercial area and we go to Lunenburg or Mahone Bay to enjoy fine dining. There is a general store in nearby Petite Rivière to purchase snacks/necessities/wine/beer. There's another beautiful beach with lifeguards just across the Bay from us called Rissers Beach. Stunning!
