This cottage was a deffinent hidden jewel, the gentle surf on the beach made our stay. We loved the exposed beams and pine boards. I highly recommend this place to anybody who lobes the simple life it is to for for.

Transforming a cottage into a warm, inviting place takes effort ....John and Carol
you have attained that warm, special and welcoming feeling. If anyone is trying to
spend time around the ocean sights and sounds, this location is amazing!! We'll for sure visit again.:)

Warm regards,

“Picture Perfect Ocean Front Cottage”

If you haven't fallen in love with this cottage by scrolling through the pictures on trip advisor, you most certainly will when you arrive! This cottage is charming and picturesque. It is perfect for two people. We dined every night with the sunset and were able to completely unwind after our day of being tourists. With Nova Scotia being a tad chilly at times, we were thankful for the fire place. We had a fire almost every night. John was very attentive to this and brought us more firewood without being asked. We would have liked a bigger fridge and a better curtain for the bedroom window. We would most certainly stay here again and we recommend this cottage to all friends looking to travel out east.

“The Boathouse Cottage”

We stayed @ a wonderful cottage called The Boathouse Cottage in Eagle Head, NS near Liverpool for a week in Sept. 2016. The owners, Carl & John were hands on & provided us with any thing we needed. The cottage was very clean & nicely laid out & decorated. We were directly across the road from the ocean & we could hear the waves crashing on the rocks & our view from the cottage was 180 degrees from all the windows & the rising & setting of the sun was phenomenal. There were many lovely beaches close to the cottage & we enjoyed many walks & picnics every day. our plans are to make it a yearly vacation.
