About This Listing
Your room has an amazing 25 km view of the Bay with a private deck and shiny, bright bathroom next door. Our three storey house was completed a year ago and has warm terrazza floors, cedar beams and a big modern kitchen. It is set in 30 acres of woodland but is also convenient for Lunenberg and Mahone Bay (40 minutes), Peggy's Cove (20minutes), Halifax (25 minutes), Wolfville (50minutes).
Locally, we have farmers markets, a shopping area and several colourful cafes that serve lunch and coffee. There are also good hiking trails and bikes for hire.
A local bus goes to Halifax, but public transport is limited.
We both love to meet new people and cook so may sometimes be able to offer supper and help yourself breakfast.
I work as an acupuncturist in an office at the bottom of our driveway, 10 minutes walk away and Colin is usually out doing something practical like fishing, building or gardening.
If you like peace and quiet but easy access to people and places then this is the place for you.
We like our guests to feel completely at home and to come and go as they wish. You could go sightseeing or just stay and lounge on the deck, read in the library, walk in the woods or make cookies!
Louise and Colin are passionate AirBnB hosts. Everythin was perfect and we felt like being home.
The breakfast (for us the most important meal of the day) with homemade blueberry-jam was a very good start for the days we stayed and the talks with Colin and Louise were very interesting.
Everything is exactly as described or even better in reality. We liked the huge house and our big room / bathroom and how clean everything is, and last but not least the very comfortable bed.
Louise and Colin gave us very good recommondations what to do and where to eat.
For sure we'd like to stay again with Louise and Colin!
This was our very first AirBnB experience and Louise and Colin turned us into more than believers! They both were very hospitable, super interesting and easy-going hosts who spoiled us with home made granola in the morning, excellent advice about everything Nova Scotia (and we happened to be so extremely lucky to get invited to a homemade dinner in their dining room).
We felt like part of the family instantly and were invited to use the whole house, not only 'our' room and bathroom. Expect to experience homegrown veggies, homemade bread and granola, a choice of filter-, french press- or espresso coffee as well as tea both in the kitchen and in your bedroom.
The house and its location is exactly like the other reviews stated: Breathtaking, clean, off the beaten track but centrally located near Peggy's Cove. Both the private bathroom and the bedroom are spacious and (together with your own balcony) overlooking St. Margaret's bay. There was even a Swiss chocolate truffle to be found on our towel, and the bed was just right.
The best part of our time with Louise and Colin was having met warm, sophisticated and curious people who love to make you feel like you are family from the minute you arrive, even if our initial scheduled arrival time was after midnight (!).
First, you book this one just because the description and the pictures looks amazing and everything it's 300% accurate. Then, it gets better! Louise and Collin really made me feel like at home (was even better ;).
They are the most welcoming host you can imagine.
They were genuinely interested in helping to make my visit a good one. It's clear that they love the woods ;) and were always willing to answer questions and provide suggestions concerning places to visit and restaurants to try or hike to do etc... Additionally, they have done quite a nice job decorating their home. The result is that it's warm, inviting, interesting, and creative. You can not compete with the view as soon as you wake up or take your shower!
Based on my experience, I highly recommend Louise and Collin's place.
Fantastic experience! Louise and Colin were lovely and welcoming hosts who went out of their way to make my stay comfortable—from rescuing me when my rental car was stuck at the bottom of the driveway to offering delicious home cooked meals during my stay. The home and, especially, the bedroom were very cozy during my winter stay and boast an incredible view. The pictures don’t quite do the place justice. I’d love to return someday and would definitely recommend. Great conversation, delicious food, and a breathtaking view!
I had an excellent experience staying with Louise and Colin. They are extremely hospitable and made me feel at home. The room has a breathtaking view of the woods and the bay. Room was very comfortable and Louise had gone an extra step to add certain things like tea in the room. The homemade breakfast was delicious and they were gracious to invite me for supper as well. They also gave me suggestions as to what all to do and where all to go in Halifax. I definitely recommend and would love to go back. They are definitely super hosts!
Louise and Colin were gracious hosts and we felt extremely welcome in their home. The house and overall feel of the environment exceeded our expectations. Everything was described accurately except that the pictures definitely did not portray the real beauty of the house and property. We knew it would be beautiful, but were stunned by the actual views. The neighborhood was quiet, remote and safe. Our visit was short but worth every minute. Louise was kind enough to allow us such a short visit and take us on a beautiful hike around the area. Would highly recommend. A gorgeous, hidden place with wonderful hosts.
We had such a great time staying with Louise and Colin. They were so helpful with our plans throughout our stay of places to eat and places to see. They made us feel so at home and comfortable from the moment we got there. Breakfast was amazing with homemade bread, granola and jams. The room was very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The views from the room are absolutely breath taking and a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. They were so kind as to invite us to join a party they were having with their friends and it turned out to be such a great night. We had lovely conversation with both of them. They truly are genuine and wonderfully kind people. We will definitely be back!
