No issues with this wonderful cottage and pleasant hosts. Loved the view from Arabel cottage window and the free DVDs were a nice touch for the kids. Minor problem was mosquitoes, especially in the morning. No fault of the owners but have to note this nonetheless. Could be all the rain that preceded our 10 night visit. We did trips to Five Islands Provincial Park, Melmerby beach, Joggins Fossil cliffs and Cape D'or, Parsboro and Pictou and still had a good 3 hours swimming when the tide was out (upon our return in late afternoon) and much less mosquitoes. Also did full day trip to PEI with swimming at PEI National park. If you need fresh sea food, we recommend the shop in Port Howe, about 30 minutes from the cottage. For PEI great dinner, try the Fisherman's Wharf in Charlottetown - great stuff. PEI is just 1.5 hours from the cottage via Confed Bridge. Nova Scotia seems to have much better scenery than PEI so we do not know why everyone is talking about PEI all the time and we did the full Central Coastal Road trip there. Nova Scotia scenery is awesome and we recommend the day trips listed above if you wish to stay by the beach. For genuine souvenirs, try mineral shop in Prsboro +m Sara Pottery in Tatamagouche. For more rugged journey, try Cape Breton and stay in Badeck a few nights too (Inverness Cottage Resort is good). Hope this helps and thanks Cambra Sands. We would definitely return!
