À propos de ce logement

170 year old 3 bedroom rustic character home on 7.5 acres, mostly wooded with ocean frontage. Very beautiful spot, peaceful and relaxing. The oceanfront is on an inlet and is great for kayaking out to the nearby seal colony.

The woodstove with ample firewood makes this a cosy spot in the wintertime as well.

Description

170 year old 3 bedroom rustic character home on 7.5 acres, mostly wooded with ocean frontage. Very beautiful spot, peaceful and relaxing. The oceanfront is on an inlet and is great for kayaking out to the nearby seal colony.

The woodstove with ample firewood makes this a cosy spot in the wintertime as well.

170 year old Nova Scotia home with lots of character.

Our family has spent many wonderful summers here, but they are older now and don't get to visit as often, so the space is available for vacations.

Three bedrooms, kitchen with oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. Dining room, living room, office with desk, scanner/printer and internet access. Main floor is all pine flooring, upstairs is original flooring, some small gaps,but I love the character of the original wood.

7.5 acres mostly wooded with a path / driveway down to the ocean (property is on the ocean, but the view from the house is the woods)

Large backyard with barbeque.
Two kayaks are available for use by guests. Kayaks are stable, but are designed for flat water. The ocean is usually calm first thing in the morning, but can get choppy if the wind picks up. Guests must assess conditions for suitability. There is a seal colony just off the waterfront, which you can easily kayak out to, so you are almost certain to see seals.

The house in in a very quiet and private location, set back from the road and surrounded by trees.

About 10 minutes from Lockeport

Kate's cottage was everything promised and more. We were very comfortable--a great bed!--and the cottage was clean and welcoming. The location was quiet and it was lovely to have our own waterfront. We would highly recommend Kate's Cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful ocean getaway. Also saw lots of deer early in the morning--a nice surprise!

Kate's cottage was lovely, as described. It was very clean, cozy and nicely decorated. The cottage has the historic feel, but the amenities to make the stay comfortable - dishwasher and lots of hot water for showers with good water pressure. I really appreciated that Kate left a brand new kitchen sponge and dishcloth - so often these things are overlooked by the traveller or host, but fresh clean kitchen linens make a difference. The old floors, doors and windows have lots of character and access to the kayaks was a great bonus!

Spent an enjoyable three days here with my wife and 3 teenagers. Kate was a great host, preparing the cottage well for our arrival, providing clear instructions, and responding quickly to inquiries. Her cottage is just as described in the listing and has an authentic rustic feel, complete with doorways that require ducking your head if you're much over 6' tall. (I mention this not as an issue, but as an example of the sort of character to expect.) The cottage was very clean, including fresh towels and linens. Everything was in good working order, from the kitchen appliances to the laundry machines to the wireless Internet. After reading previous reviews, I'd make one clarification about privacy: the cottage is set back a short ways from the road, with a considerably longer distance from there to the shore (about a 5 minute walk down a wide, grassy trail from the cottage). Visually, the cottage is perfectly private but you can hear occasional traffic from the road. The shoreline is quite interesting. Note that access to the water's edge can be tricky as the ground transitions from woods to wet/marshy ground to large rocks in muddy shallows -- though I don't believe we were at the water at high tide, so it might be different then. The kayaks are a great feature; after paddling out, we spotted nearly 20 seals on the nearby rocks! They're a bit shy, though, so bring a strong zoom lens if you want to take home some closeup shots. In all, a great visit and happy to recommend Kate's Cottage!

Kate made us feel very welcome and when we asked her if she had any fans (upstairs was very hot one night) she told us we could buy a couple (she was two hours away in Halifax) and she would reimburse us, which she promptly did. There were lots of towels. Hot water was plentiful and the beds were very comfortable. Had great sleeps every night. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes. BBQ could be upgraded, but that is nitpicking.

The cottage was exactly as described and shown in the photos. It was immaculate and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable with beautiful linens. The cottage is very private, off the road and on a bay. It is very quiet at night and you can see the stars. The location is perfect for exploring the southern shore near Keji Seashore, Lockport's Crescent Beach and Shelburne. There are so many beautiful beaches nearby that we went to a different one every day. I would definitely book again!

Kate was very prompt replying to inquiries and even though we said we were not sure about our arrival time, she was there within minutes of us notifying her we had arrived. She is pleasant, unassuming, and very accomodating. The property had games, books, laundry, bbq, fire much to offer and Lockeport was minutes away with a lovely beach that we spent 2 days at and lovely restaurant options.
