A lovely retreat on Nova Scotia's South Shore. One and a half hours drive from Halifax, seven minutes from Liverpool, on a string of the most beautiful white sand beaches on the East coast of Canada.
Close to great restaurants (Lanes Privateers, Liverpool, The Quarterdeck, Summerville Beach, White Point Resort) a golf course, fabulous walking, swimming, kayaking, and surfing!
Have a look at our site, LIttle House at Hunts Point, for testimonials from those who've stayed, loved it, and returned!
Indoors, a lovely wood stove to cosy up to through the coldest winter day, and outside, a fire pit in the lower garden, perfect for summer bonfires, watching fireflies and roasting marshmallows after a long day on the beach.
There is no gas barbecue - we use the fire pit.
This is a writers retreat, so we've avoided TV's, telephones, internet or wifi. All can be accessed close by, but we've tried to make this a get-away spot.
In the autumn, which is often the best season here you can pick blueberries, pears, and blackberries on the property.
Guests have the use of the whole cottage, garden and shed. There are some
outdoor chairs stored for guests in the shed.
Interaction with Guests
You'll be told the location of the key, and put in contact with our fabulous cleaning/maintenance woman, (Anne).
This is one of the most gorgeous shorelines in the world: we fell in love with it when we first visited Nova Scotia, and the clean, deserted beaches and incredible walks and natural beauty definitely influenced our decision to move from London England, to Nova Scotia.
Your really need a car to get to the Little House, but the Cycling is great in this area, as is the sea kayaking. There is shed in which to keep you cycles.
We allow well trained dogs, but must know in advance. We ask they not be left in the property alone, or allowed on the furniture.
Absolutely No Smoking in the property, or near the building.
Parking available for three or four cars.
We provide linen and towels, and ask you to leave the cottage tidy and clean when you leave. Key must be put back in the position in which you found it, for the next guest.
