Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This summer home is located at the head of Herring Cove; there is 48m of waterfront. Have fun exploring, roaming the rocks or kayaking the Cove of this private shore. We have two kayaks for your pleasure. Enjoy the spectacular view from the hot tub or the spacious deck. Herring Cove has much to offer with its hiking, sight seeing, simply sitting at the dock, or visiting our popular Pavia Cafe. It is a 15 minute drive to Downtown. This is a great spot for cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts.

The space
A quaint, incredibly clean cottage that is comfortable and well decorated, you can feel the call to the sea inside; this is a beautiful property - a photographer’s mecca. There is a kitchen with full amenities and a BBQ for your home-away-from-home experience. There is plenty of outdoor furniture so you can relax and enjoy the fresh air, but if you want to stay in, there is WiFI, cable, and a 40” TV. The basement is ideal for storing bikes, kayaks, and other recreational gear.
Just a note that I will have to mow the lawn and tend to the Hot Tub, I will make every effort to do these chores when guests are out.

Guest access
Guests can have full access to the house, the basement is unfinished but ideal for storing bikes, kayaks, and gear. There is a dryer, a ping pong table, a work bench and other personal items in storage.

Other things to note
We are fortunate to be located on the popular cycling route of the Herring Cove/ Sambro Loop. Avoid the city traffic and start your ride right from the doorstep - the route is quiet with rolling hills. We work with our good friends from Cyclesmith, Halifax's premier Bike Shop, to offer bike rentals. Bring your pedals, shoes, and helmet, and we provide the rest; your bike will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive. If hiking is your thing we are within 10 minutes to several coastal trails including Duncans Cove, Herring Cove Provincial Park, and Crystal Crescent Beach. Walk or drive to the local Pavia Cafe and Art Gallery, a popular destination for cyclists, hikers and all visitors. Hungry? Walk two minutes from your stay and grab some donair pizza or fish and chips from our local diner Now We're Cooking. If the water is seasonally warm, swimming and snorkelling are available. We even participate in the annual New Years Day Herring Cove Polar Dip. It's a well kept vacation home with a very private large oceanside deck and hot tub. Be active or just relax and watch ships, fishing boats, pleasure boats, the Pilot Boat or watch the sea birds and nature abound.

Stay tuned for the seasonal pricing of rental bikes.

Location

Herring Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

This is a combination of a quaint fishing community and a modern new neighbourhood. It is close to the city but the cove is active and busy with fishing boats, the Pilot Boat, sailboats, kayaks, and motor pleasure boats.
