Nestled in pine trees, with a view of Seal Point, on a rocky shore and surrounded by nature, Winsome Cottage is peaceful and serene. Have your breakfast in the large sunroom, watch the sunrise, and enjoy the deer walking through the yard. Listen to the chickadees and blue jays, as they sing their songs. Watch the sea gulls glide effortlessly in the sky.

Location

Port La Tour, Nova Scotia, Canada

Winsome Cottage is located in the small hamlet of Port LaTour, on the South West shore of Nova Scotia. It is nestled in pine trees and very private. It sits on one acre of land, with a view of Seal Point. Walk the path from the cottage to the waters edge, where there is 1600 feet of sandy and rocky shoreline. Go beach combing to find beach glass, shells and driftwood. You may even see a seal or two bobbing along in the water.

Within a few minutes' drive you can visit Port LaTour wharf, Crow's Neck Beach, Bacarro Point Lighthouse, the archaeological site of Fort Saint Louis and Sand Hills Park Beach. The Barrington Museum complex is a 20 minute drive and houses some of the archaeological finds from Fort Saint Louis. The museum gift shop offers locally made items showcasing local artists and artisans.

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.
