We stock eggs, bacon, bread, cereal, coffee, tea, orange juice and milk so you can start your holiday stressfree. Eastern Wood Pee Wee, Hermit thrush, Least Fly catcher, Swamp Sparrow and frog chorusing now. Dragonflies and fireflies galore! Enjoy from our large screened porch. Waterfront chalet nature retreat nestled in trees on 8 at Angevine Lake near North Shore beaches, Ski Resort, amazing hiking trails, and Golf Courses and handy to Tatamagouche, Wallace & Pugwash. Canoe, rowboat onsite :)

The space
This lovely well equipped chalet is a true nature retreat. Open concept, brightly wood panelled the experience is a treat for the senses. Upper loft has its own sink & toilet. Downstairs is an additional toilet, shower & laundry facilities. Delightful large screened in porch extends living space well into shoulder seasons. Note we have just installed a new green metal roof in spring of 2020.

Much of Angevine Lake & environs is protected as a nature reserve. Mary, your host, did the biological surveys that resulted in this protection. This chalet is nestled into one of the loveliest spots on the lake and your visit enables us to protect it as the ONLY dedicated dragonfly and damselfly (Odonata) nature preserve in the Americas! So thank you very much!! There are over 40 Odonata species that you can observe here according to season. Flight times extend from early June to late fall according to species. We leave a wonderful range of nature guides at the chalet for you to use during your safari at our Lake :)

Birders will also delight in the intimate activity of birds & dawn and dusk chorus. Love the music of frogs, and crickets? The grounds here will truly amaze and enchant you. You will experience deer wandering just outside your screened in porch & rare dragonflies fluttering around you on the boardwalk in the fen.

Four seasons of nature therapy to recharge and delight you. Snowshoeing and nearby downhill skiing spectacular! Please only 6 guests max plus one infant under 2 in this small chalet. More will strain our water and septic. Note the person who ploughs our road and drive also makes sure to plough the drive after storms :)

NOTE: This is not a suitable venue for anyone not prepared to enjoy and wonder at wildlife of all shapes and sizes potentially encroaching on your personal space. We do deal with creatures that become pests but for obvious reasons ban doing this via use of chemicals :)

Guest access
From the chalet venture to the lake following our board walk to the shore and our little island. At the tip of the boardwalk is the firepit. Veer left and follow the path to our little beach and boat launch area. Canoe & rowboat for your use here in season. Please do not cut away anything alive in the water. Rare plants abound! Swimming is warm, clear and delightful. Sandy and long shallow entry to lake. Fall colours spectacular!
Wonderful skating in winter once lake and pond are safely frozen.
Snowshoeing & crosscountry skiing also amazing. Downhill skiing at Wentworth ski hill 15 minutes drive away - and yes they have lots of snowmaking equipment so the slopes are more dependable than anywhere else in the region. In summer head in the other direction to a plethora of amazing north shore salt water beaches. In winter head to nearby Sugar Moon farm for maple syrup treats and hiking the Rogart Mountain Trail.

Other things to note
We manage the grounds as a nature preserve & retreat. There is standing deadfall, forest, fen and native species only on the grounds. Please do not “clean up” nor bring bird seed. Enjoy the serendipity of wildlife sightings and choruses right from the screened porch.

Looking forward to helping you enjoy your holiday on Nova Scotia's North Shore. I fell in love with the warm water and blue skies up here 25 years ago. Can't wait to hear your stories and to help make your stay fun & memorable! Fall, winter and spring visitors are also in for a treat. Amazing fall colours to hike and bike through. Winter snowshoeing here on the Trail or skiing at nearby Ski Wentworth. And of course maple sugaring off come spring down the road at Sugar Moon Farm. Stay awhile :)
