The Prospector's Cottage is a simple century home 1/2 way bet. Halifax & Cape Breton Island in the Eastern Shore Wild Islands region. One of our guests called it "city apartment therapy" - surrounded by nature, wildlife, peace and quiet. A retreat but not remote! Come write your novel, paint, breathe...We live a mile or so away and have a canoe to rent, islands to visit and woodland trails to walk. Wild camping spots by the ocean can be arranged for the adventurous!

It was an inexpensive stop on a travel through the area. It's not a place to make a base of. The Host was very welcoming.
