Welcome to the #BolerLife! This 13 foot 1974 Boler has been completely redone. Parked lakeside on the beautiful Zwickers Lake, the Boler is outfitted in with a dock and outdoor kitchen (BBQ, camp stove and propane). Bedding is not provided.

A flush toilet outhouse is just 100 feet away. Firewood is available for purchase for $5 a bin. You have access to the community beach fire pit or your own private fire pit.

The space
COVID-19 Update: We are accepting bookings for summer 2020.

1. The beach bathroom is for the use of the Boler renters only.
2. If you wish to use communal items such as the kayaks or canoe, please bring your own sanitizing wipes to clean these items.
3. As long as the US border is closed we cannot accept bookings from US visitors.


This 13 foot Boler has been lovingly redone and is waiting for you to enjoy it.

Guests must bring their own pillows, sleeping bags or other bedding items, as well as camp chairs, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, water jug, cooler and ice for your food and drinks. The Boler has an outdoor kitchen that includes a BBQ, camp stove and propane. A dish wash basin is provided, and there’s a tap with drinking water on the outside of the washroom building. Please bring your own water jug.

There is no power at the Boler - you can recharge your phones using the plug in the bathroom building. Please note: there is no wifi.

A few realities of #BolerLife:

The Boler sleeps two adults, and two young children. The top bunk is only rated for up to 80 pounds. The double bed is 6 feet long - if you're taller, you're not going to be super comfortable.

There is no heat or air conditioning in the Boler. As it's parked in the shade, it doesn't get too hot. The outdoor screen tent has been taken down for the season.

The Boler is situated on a small cove, and the shared beach is behind the Boler and roughly 60 feet away.

The washroom is 100 feet from the Boler. It has a flush toilet and sink (cold water only) and outdoor tap with drinkable cold water. Showers are not available. Hot water is not available.

The Boler has a private fire pit. There is also a communal beach fire pit. Firewood can be purchased for $5 a bundle, cash only, or you are welcome to bring your own. Two plastic Adirondack chairs are provided on the deck.

Two kayaks, a canoe and paddle boat is available for your use. Life jackets are provided, for kids and adults. There’s a lovely hammock at the beach.

This is a quiet lake, and loud partying is not permitted. Quiet time is 10pm to 8am. We do live on site, and are usually available at all times.

Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times.

I live in rural Nova Scotia, and occasionally travel for my job in communications. When travelling I like to hit up thrift stores and independent culturally diverse eateries.
