Two story, loft-style cabin in the woods. Relax, have a campfire, dip your feet in the nearby brook and enjoy nature in this cozy and comfortable space. Available all year round, with a wood stove and equipped with a generator if you choose. Near the town of Antigonish, along the Sunrise Trail, next to the Fairmont Ridge Hiking trail, and minutes from some of the best beaches around.
“Staying at Rowan's place is a magical experience and we can't wait for a chance to go back! The walk through the woods to the cabin is peaceful , the location of the cabin is perfect, and the creek that runs by it is great for getting water to do dishes with, etc. The cabin itself is cozy and a very fun space to spend time in. We enjoyed many sweaty games of darts (the wood fire really heats the place up), and lots of time relaxing and cooking on the woodstove. I highly highly recommend staying here, at any time of year!”
Step into this cabin retreat and feel your senses awaken to the aroma and warmth of the all wood interior. Relax in the tranquility and get in tune with nature. Breathtaking views of the St. George's Bay await you from the cabin deck. Located between Antigonish and Cape Breton, 2 minutes from the 104, this private nature paradise awaits your exploration with 300 acres of woodland, fields, rivers, a secluded waterfall at the back of the property and Bayfield Beach ( a 10 minute drive away).
“This quaint little cabin was AMAZING! The huge property was well-maintained and easy to find. We took our dogs for strolls around the massive acreage and, while following Heather’s directions and map, came across a beautiful river and waterfall. The whole experience was breathtaking and worth the walk! We found ourselves wishing we could stay longer to enjoy it all. Heather was so accommodating of us and made sure there was breakfast materials available in the fridge, plus pretty much every kitchen tool you’d need! She also was so kind and easy to talk to, meeting her was a pleasure. Everything you’d need is provided, from blankets and towels to extra toothbrushes and first aid supplies! The scenery and the view can’t be beat either, with ocean views and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. If you are looking for a wonderful space to relax and take in the true beauty of Nova Scotia, this is the place! Thank you so much for having us, and we can’t wait to come back!”
Located on a working farm this charming studio unit is in the upstairs of a newly renovated 1800's farm house. Enjoy the exposed rafters, kitchenette, private bathroom, four-piece bathroom with soaker tub and separate one-piece shower. Turn in for the night on bamboo sheets under a handcrafted wool comforter. This is a working farm with cows in the field, chickens free-ranging (the rooster crows early!) , and Alpine dairy goats. Located just 4 km from StFX University and downtown Antigonish.
“The farm is a truly peaceful get away. Ashley and Blair are kind and thoughtful hosts preparing the place simply for a relaxing experience. The place was quiet and clean and a good base to visit the area with a car. Each morning and evening we would look to see the cows and really enjoyed the laid back attitude of the farmstead.”
