Fish off the wharf (fishing rods on site!), clam dig ,kayak (use ours!); you won’t be disappointed with this once in a lifetime experience. Includes internet, BBQ ,washer & dryer, linens and most condiments!

The space
This home, once belonging to my grand mother , overlooks the Petit de Grat Harbour. One bedroom is located on the main floor with 3 bedrooms located on the top floor. Sleeps 8 (plus 1 as we can provide cot upon request) :one queen, two double , 2 single beds. Walk to the library. Fish off the wharf. Enjoy the view. Read a book. Relax.

This is a very rustic traditional Acadian home, with many items , paintings and trinkets that once belonged to my grand mother. Other then the leather sofas and internet, there is nothing modern about our cottage. The floors are a combination of tiles and linoleum. The bathroom is pink! The towels are great but don’t match. However, as others have, you’ll no doubt find lots of hidden charm, memories, and things that possibly remind you of your own grand parents! And the view is priceless. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!

Guest access
Access the wharf, a stone’s throw. Renting our cottage includes the following :

1 adult kayak
1 adult fishing kayak
3 youth kayaks
2 fishing rods
Life jackets for 2 adults and 2 children
1 adult bike
2 children’s bikes

The back deck , equipped with a BBQ and seating, overlooks the harbour.

Other things to note
We are open during covid19 as like you , I can’t wait to get her out of the city and have some room to breath.

The place has superb wifi and a 55 inch 4K smart tv for those not so nice days, where a blanket, Netflixs and a beverage of choice warms the heart and soul.
