“Charming cottage, amazing sunsets, spotless, with thoughtful extra touches”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Starfish cottage is situated in the quiet, peaceful village of Port George, Nova Scotia. A beautiful, convenient location (just a short drive to Middleton) it is the perfect restful escape. The owner's have included everything you could possibly need for your use. They've added many special touches that add to it's charm. The cottage is spotless. Sit on the back deck overlooking the Bay (we must have a hundred sunset pictures), or sip wine on the covered front porch. There are charming craft stores in the village and it is the perfect setting for walking. My husband and I had a great week here and are already planning a return next year. The cottage is in a perfect spot to tour the attractions the area offers. We visited Fort Anne and the Historic Gardens (a treasure not to be missed). The Cornwallis military museum is also a wonderful visit. Be sure to get scallops in Digby and take advantage of the farm markets. In Annapolis be sure to check out "Bistro East" which offers great light fare at great prices and super service.

We are happy to recommend this wonderful cottage; the care the owners take with this gem is much appreciated. After a day of exploring we couldn't wait to get back to "our" oasis. Everything you could ever need is there - enjoy!

We have never stayed anywhere that has been so organized and prepared for their guests. There was absolutely NOTHING we couldn't find. They left a personalized welcome message and a welcome binder answer every question we possibly could ask - and the hosts were always available via phone or email. They deserve the highest rating available - we would stay again in a heartbeat.

We were very pleased with the cottage, it had everything they had listed on the website. It was more beautiful than the pictures showed. They had a booklet with a list of activities and places to see near by which was great. Would definitely go back!

“Awesome cottage with awesome view”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I can't imagine a nicer place to spend a vacation. The beautiful cottage was well equipped with the best of everything. Anything you needed was there, and there were lots of little details that make for a pleasant stay. Beds were comfortable. Deck with ocean view was awesome. Owners were friendly folks to deal with. Just a pleasant and wonderful time. We loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave.

“Everything you need and a beautiful view of the bay.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The McLellan's have thought of everything a guest might need or want. The kitchen is well equipped. The furniture and bedding is comfortable. Everything is spotlessly clean, neat and pleasingly decorated. We enjoy a quiet place with good views and the views of the Bay of Fundy can’t be beat. We have stayed here twice and will make it an annual destination.
