Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life at your own private ocean front retreat! With woods, wild life, flowers and a panoramic view of the Atlantic, Red Head Retreat is an enchanting open plan, fully equipped 3-bedroom cottage. Breathe in the salt air, listen to the waves, take a walk by the sea and enjoy the wide open views of the Atlantic. There's no better way to spend a warm, summers day!

The space
At the end of a quiet country lane, in a large garden high on a bluff, Red Head Retreat offers peace and privacy. Natural sunlight streams in though the ocean view windows creating a warm and inviting space. You will feel at home the moment you arrive.

A central staircase divides the ground floor open plan living, dining and kitchen spaces. The kitchen is fully equipped and overlooks the garden and ocean beyond. With a view like that you don’t mind doing the dishes. Honey-coloured hardwood floors, wood trim, neutral paint colours and comfortable furnishings all add to the charm. If you are looking for a little romance, bring your honey and curl up together in front of the working fireplace. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a TV room. The master bedroom has a king size bed, while the other two rooms have twin beds. There is a full bathroom on the ground floor with laundry facilities. Outside, a full sized deck with a BBQ and patio overlooks the ocean. There is also a fire pit for an evening of stargazing and marshmallow roasting.

Red Head Retreat comes complete with bedding, towels, dishes, cooking utensils, coffee maker, kettle, and propane BBQ. The house is fully wired for internet. There is a flat screen satellite TV in the upstairs TV room. Board games and cards are available for family time around the dining room table.

Guest access
The entire house is yours to enjoy. Please make yourself feel at home.

Location

Atlantic, Nova Scotia, Canada

On a quiet country lane in the coastal community of Atlantic, Red Head Retreat is miles away from the noise and pollution of people and traffic. The tranquility is remarkable. All you can hear are sounds of waves crashing, birds flying overhead, and the odd fishing vessel going by. There are plenty of beach walks to take and star gazing to do. The closest beach, Ingomar Beach is about half a kilometer walk from the property. Two other beaches in the area, Roseway Beach and Carleton Village Beach are both approximately 10km away. If you can tear yourself away from all that natural beauty, Shelburne is just 20 minutes away. There you will find shopping, museums, theatre and restaurants.

I moved to Shelburne in 2000 and I have spent the last 19 years working in Nova Scotia’s tourism industry first as a Bed and Breakfast owner and now as an owner/operator of Sandy Lane Vacation Rentals. I love my adopted home. I think Nova Scotia’s South Shore is an undiscovered gem and I look forward to sharing my local knowledge with you. When I am not helping my guests find the perfect home for their vacation, I'm off exploring new parts of the world.
