The space
The waterfront cottage features 1 bedroom with a kingsize bed and a futon in the living room (the futon fits an additional 2 people), as well as a 3 piece bathroom.

The cottage has water from a 60 meter deep drilled well that has been tested for heavy metals and contaminants.

A private balcony allows guests to enjoy nature from the comfort of their cottage.
The cottage is neatly nestled in a clearing, with trees ensuring for privacy relative to other cottages. The cottage has a clearing on the balcony side, allowing for a stunning view of the lake, parts of the ocean, and the surrounding lush green plant life and scenery. The cottage is completely detached from the host house and is located about 30 meters away with trees acting as a barrier for privacy. You'll be able to lounge on the balcony and bask in the sun while enjoying your outdoor BBQ with the utmost amount of privacy. Access to the lake (which often reaches temperatures of 26 degrees celsius (79 F) is just seconds away, and reaching, arguably one of the most private ocean beaches you'll find in nova scotia, is just another 30 minute kayak tour away. Most of the time, you'll be the only one on St. Esprit beach. Check out the guidebook in our cottage or on airbnb for other fun adventures that await you with your next stay.

Guest access
Guests are able to access any part of the resort they wish (this includes the lake, ocean or wherever they wish to go exploring!) other than the cottage areas themselves since these are private areas occupied by other guests.

The outdoor hot tub is situated in probably one of the most private spots available from a resort in Canada. It is sufficiently distanced from all other cottages and is surrounded by trees (except for the side with the view of the lake). This is unlike all other resorts where there is significantly less privacy and where the hot tub is often shared. Other guests do use the hot tub, but no one else but you will use the hot tub during your own personal, exclusive, reserved 1hr hot tub time block where only you have access to the hot tub area!

The hot tub fits 5 people and is available to all guests (exception: pregnant women are not permitted to use the hot tub for safety reasons and children must 5 years of age or older in order to use the hot tub).

Location

St. Esprit, Nova Scotia, Canada

A peace and stillness exists in St. Esprit that everyone who visits can recognize and embrace. A once sacred Native American gathering place, St. Esprit was deserted after French/British tensions. This turned what was once a bustling country village into a rare isolated backcountry of Canada. Our retreat was created to help people return to their sacred roots within nature, to enjoy the crisp & fresh air of Canada‘s outback and to help one‘s eyes enjoy the soothing qualities of being able to look as far as the horizon can take your gaze onto the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean. Located in southern Cape Breton on the northeast tip of Nova Scotia, the ocean plays a major role in regulating our climate. This results in a maritime-influenced climate which features a very strong and significant seasonal lag with our warmest daily lows occurring in August once ocean temperatures peak. Our neighbour, Sable Island, is only 187 km south of St. Esprit Island and it acts as one of the closest landmasses to sable island.

There are no restaurants, shopping options, gas stations or grocery stores nearby in the area (nearest grocery store & restaurant is ~30 min away in St. Peter's; nearest gas station is about 25 min away in L'Ardoise but with limited hours; nearest shopping district is ~1 hr away in Sydney, NS)

Our resort is located about 1 km (as the crow flies) from the Atlantic Coast. The Atlantic coast side of Nova Scotia experiences some of the mildest year-round temperatures in the maritimes (apart from sable island). Cottage Loon is situated in the middle of nature, perfect for relaxing and enjoying oneself. It is close to several scenic sites (as listed in our cottage guidebook) that will make your stay a memorable one. Alternatively, guests have their own separate, private space surrounding the cottage where they can relax and rejuvenate.
