A Blue House is nestled on ten secluded acres of oceanfront on a quiet sandy beach in Louis Head, Nova Scotia. Watch the sun and moon rise from the Atlantic and relax to sounds of the waves gently lapping at the beach. A large pond with an island adds to the natural setting of the property.

A Blue House embodies traditional Nova Scotia architecture that is over 150 years old. It is completely renovated to include a large great room and kitchen finished in pine woodwork.

More than a cottage, this large, 2,100 sq. ft. home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and comes fully furnished and equipped. A Blue House has been awarded a four (out of a possible five) star rating as a Canada Select Accommodation by the Board of Tourism.

We loved staying at the Blue House - I haven't seen the Milky Way so clearly for decades!. No light pollution, no noise pollution.. a beautiful, restful place. We kayaked with seals, and watched an eagle sit right in front of the house. And I can't say enough about the food - if you are a seafood lover, this is an awesome place - FRESH scallops, haddock and lobster. Day trips to nearby areas doable and quite rewarding - especially if you are into maritime history or old churches ( there are LOTS of them). Please don't visit without a camera! more

Too often a vacation is just seven days away from the office. It should be more. Our vacation at the blue house in Lion's head, Nova Scotia allowed us to renew ourselves, time to soak in the scenery, read, walk the beach, eat good food and return home to Virginia refreshed. The place and its remote surroundings will always find a pleasant spot in our memories. more
