“Beautiful south shore cottage”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

I recently stayed at the Fennel house with my sister and mom for a south shore girls weekend. We loved the seclusion of the home, yet it was relatively central to many South Shore points of interest.

The cottage truly has an oceanfront cottage feel, from the decor to the age of the house and antique wood stoves. The house was more spacious than anticipated and the value was well worth it. The old family photo albums showing the upgrades to the house over the years was really neat.

The views are spectacular from inside the house and from the many decks /docks located on the exterior. We were there during the recent lunar eclipse and had some of the best views.

The cottage is very well stocked with cooking wares and your basic spices and everyday items. Far more stocked than any other vacation property.

I was a little nervous about the compost toilet, but none of us had any issues when we were there, and thought it was quite neat.

We strolled to Crescent beach and saw many deer along the way. The local inhabitants of the island are very friendly and welcoming. The Lahave Bakery does not disappoint and is a must!

The rental process was extremely smooth and Mont called to check in upon our arrival and departure to make sure everything was alright and that we enjoyed our stay. His response time to emails was within an hour or two. I would highly recommend this vacation rental for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and who are looking for a true cottage feel.

“The charm of the ocean, a sweet old country house, and Nova Scotia....WOW!”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The house is old and still a bit rustic...yet charming, well maintained and immaculately clean. If you want to experience the sounds and smells of the ocean in a place where that;s all you can see from the kitchen window...this is the spot.

The closest full-size supermarket is indeed a half-hour away, but there are two, well-stocked convenience stores within an 8-10 minute drive. We encourage guests to stop at the supermarket before arriving.
