This year-round home is in one of Nova Scotia's most beautiful areas, the South Shore. Known for its abundant beaches, restaurants, shopping and music there is something for everyone! We have added many cleaning protocols to ensure your safety.

The space
Heron's Rest is a quaint tiny home nestled in the woods on just over two acres beside one of the largest set of rapids on the Petite River.

Located just 1.5 hours from Halifax, this quiet and private rental is just off the main road giving quick access to the wide range of local interest and activities. It's the perfect location for a romantic getaway for two or a personal retreat.

The house is fully equipped with a wood -burning fireplace (wood is included), fridge, stove, dishwasher and laundry facilities. It will sleep 2 in the main bedroom queen-sized bed. The large deck which overlooks the river is accessed off the kitchen and includes a BBQ and outdoor dining facilities. Guests can enjoy a quiet evening on the deck listening to the river and watching the stars or build a bonfire in the riverside fire pit.

This is a wonderful community close to local beaches, steeped with history and full of charm. Petite Riviere is just a few minutes away and has a general store (complete with liquor store). Have one of their wonderful cups of coffee and enjoy a few minutes on their deck sharing a "yarn" with the locals.

Please note that there is no public transit here.

Guest access
The entire property is yours to roam, a gentle pathway takes you down to the river rapids and along the shore then back up through the gardens. The river is a great place to sit and read, meditate or take a cool dip in the summertime. The deck has several areas to sit and relax or enjoy a meal and comes complete with a BBQ.

Other things to note
We have been taking extra precautions at the cottage to make sure it is clean and safe for your stay. We disinfect the space after every guest to ensure you can relax and enjoy your stay worry-free. All linens and towels are replaced with a freshly laundered set for each guest. Pillows and bed covers are also changed. We clean wearing a mask and gloves to ensure your safety.

Originally from Ontario, I made Nova Scotia my home 13 years ago and I can't image living anywhere else. My partner Paul and I have so many amazing adventures in Nova Scotia, hiking, biking, sailing, SUPing and touring around in our van. We have enjoyed hosting and traveling with Airbnb for the last 5 years. People from all over the world have found our little corner of paradise and its been great fun sharing our place by the river with them.

During your stay
That is really up to the guest. I find many people really enjoy a quiet get away to wind down and relax. If they want to connect I'm happy to visit but I want to respect people's privacy.
