This 4 bedroom, 2 bath cottage is located on the South Shore in desirable Upper Kingsburg. Approximately 1.5 hours from the Halifax airport, the cottage is a short drive from Lunenburg and Mahone Bay and offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Romkey pond. Well-equipped, yet modest, the home sleeps up to 8 people and is a short walk to Hirtles Beach and Gaff Point. This is a place to come to relax and unwind in a spectacular setting.
Set on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Romkey pond, the cottage is the perfect home-base for exploring the South Shore, or for just putting your feet up and relaxing in an adirondack chair with nothing but a good book and the view.
The covered porch is a lovely place to enjoy a morning coffee or a late afternoon snack. Inside there are also beautiful views from most vantage points and you can open your bedroom window and hear the waves at night.
There is nothing fancy about the cottage, but we hope you feel as comfortable and at home here as we do. Downstairs there are two living room / seating areas, a separate den with a coach and desk, a dining area and kitchen. There are two tables that can be put together to seat 8 guests. The kitchen is simple, yet well stocked and guests are welcome to use anything on hand. There is a full fridge / stove, plenty of dishes, pots, pans and cooking utensils, but no dishwasher. There is also a 1/2 bath on the main floor.
The bedrooms are on the second floor. Please be mindful with young children or elderly guests as the stairs are steep.
Upstairs welcomes you with a small landing area with well-stocked bookshelf and a sweet window overlooking the fields and ocean. There are 4 bedrooms, two with queens and two with double / full. Please note that one of the bedrooms is smaller than the other and the size, combined with the slopping roof make it best suited for children or single travelers. There is a full bathroom upstairs and both baths are updated. Sand can be problematic for the plumbing system and we do ask that guests rinse off in the outdoor shower prior to using the shower inside.
Guests are provided with a code prior to arrival for keyless entry. We welcome our guests to use anything they find, we just ask that cars and beach bags are checked for any borrowed items before departure. There is an assortment of books and games, beach chairs and towels. There are two small outbuildings on the property the gray / white building closest to the house and a small red barn. While guests are welcome to store belongings in the gray / white building we ask that guests do not access the red barn.
