“Most Beautiful Sunsets in Nova Scotia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This was the greatest place in Nova Scotia! The little cottages right on the waterfront...just to die for. They came with an outside porch with a picnic table so you could eat outside and see the most beautiful views morning and evening. The inkeepers, Frank and Lelia were the most knowlegeable couple. We felt we had known them for years. We wanted to stay forever. It is a hidden jewel and I hope with this review more people get to experience this paradise and the most friendliest inkeepers around. Oh and don't forget to bring your carrots, 2 of the cutest donkeys will love you for it. :)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stayed here for tow nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottages were nice and private which was great because we had our two dogs with us. The welcome was very warm and helpful and I certainly felt every effort would have been made to fill a request. The cottage we stayed in (#4) was roomy and had a very comfortable bed. No carpets which was great with the dogs. The kitchen had all the appliances you need but we could have done with a large pot. That being said I am certain they would have lent us one had we asked.
Great views of the ocean, lovely beaches to take to dogs on and lots of birds to see. Someone mentioned the small tv, well with all the outdoor scenery does it really matter. With all the fresh air and beach walking we went to bed early and then up at daybreak with the puppy for a lovely morning beach walk. We would certainly come back.

We stayed at this mom and pop-run accommodatioin for a night while vacationing with another couple. I would actually rate it 2 1/2, if I had that option. It wasn't Poor, but was less than Average, bad points outweighing the good. The cottages are in a remote location, but have a beautiful view of the bay and one can walk to the beach.

The nicest part of our two-bedroom cottage was the kitchen area, which contained a stove/oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and all necessary cooking and eating paraphenalia. Also nice was the deck with a picnic table.

There was a small sitting area with a sofa, a small round table with four chairs and a very small TV. Lighting in all the rooms was very poor. The two small bedrooms each had double beds, a small chest and a small closet. The chests prevented the doors from opening all the way. There was no room for our suitcases and we had to be quite creative in finding space to put them.

The tiny bathroom had a tiny shower and two minute bars of soap. There was no hairdryer and no place to hang our towels.

There was no air conditiioner and fans were available on request.

My husband and I spent three wonderful nights at the Sea'scape Cottages in July 2012. The 2 bedroom cottages are well-equipped, private enough (separated on each side by large, old pine trees) and offer spectacular views from the decks. The property faces a large estuary and across the channel is the remote end of the Pomquet Beach Provincial Park (there is a row-boat you can use to go across for free).

The rise and fall of the tides make for a constantly changing panorama for nature (and particularly bird) watchers. At low tide you can see numbers of Great Blue Heron's (as well as other sea birds - plovers, terns, sandpipers) fishing along the shore. With the binoculars, we counted 14 herons at one time one morning! We also saw eagles, osprey, numerous flickers, etc.etc. During our three day stay there we saw over 20 different species of birds - there were so many that we kept count!

The beach is endless for hiking or relaxing, and the surrounding area is interesting to explore. We took many gravel roads that ended in deserted beaches or waterfront - some with large and colourful rocks, others with fine (although not white) sand.

We found the owners very welcoming and interesting, in contrast to other reviewers who have commented here. We're from Nova Scotia and we know that the tourist season is very short, so those who rely on it for income - particularly with cottages that normally rent by the week - have to be pretty strict about confirming payments in advance.

One item worth noting - the smaller studio cottage is much, much smaller and significantly less well-equipped. We had booked it originally (for the queen size bed) but were fortunate that the owners were ready (and able) to arrange for us to move to a two-bedroom cottage once we realized it was too small for our needs. We would not recommend booking it unless you're just stopping overnight and looking for a place to sleep. Other note - mosquitos can be quite bad at dusk (welcome to NS!).

We were looking for peaceful, relaxing downtime in beautiful natural surroundings, and found exactly what we wanted at Sea'scape Cottages. We're already planning our return visit! PS - Did I mention the very tame bunnies that graze on the grass around the cottages, and the momma and baby donkeys in the field as you drive in?

P & A from NS

Room Tip: Don't book the small cottage.

I tried to reserve a cottage for a week. The lady (owner) that I spoke to told me I would have to pay up-front for the whole week. I questioned this as I was use to paying a deposit or one nights stay to confirm a reservation. The lady was rude, ranted about her policy and why and then hung up on me. I am a senior living in Toronto and an avid traveler, I have never been spoken to or treated so rude by anyone. I do not recommend taking the risk of staying here, they do not know how to treat people!

Location: This cluster of cottages is set up with nice views across an estuary to an unspoiled provincial park . Saw four bald eagles from the porch. Canoe available on premises. Location is several miles north the Trans-Canada Highway, east of Antigonish.

Accommodation: We took a two bedroom cottage with full kitchen, living room, two full separate bedrooms, and bathroom (shower). Well furnished, large rooms, immaculate. We paid $160 a night plus tax.

Bonus: Owners were exceptionally cordial. Very well informed on local history, politics and economics.

Hint1: If you are coming in from New Brunswick, shop for fresh fish and produce at Masstown Market. We purchased superb salmon steaks at a very reasonable price in the “lighthouse” and cooked them up. No food or dining options available in the immediate area of the cottages.
Hint2: Bring mosquito repellent. We arrived during a long wet spell and found the numbers and ferocity of the bugs was impressive.
Hint3: Use the canoe to cross the estuary to the long sandy beach at the provincial park.
Hint4: Take care to avoid being swept through the gut if the tide is running out.
Hint5: Ask for CAA/AAA discount on check in.
Hint6: If you need wifi, ask to use wifi at the office. Cottages are too distant to pick up signal.
