This year round cottage is in one of Nova Scotia's most beautiful areas, the South Shore. Known for its abundant beaches, restaurants, shopping and music there is something for everyone!
Heron's Rest is a quaint cottage located on just over an acre of land beside one of the largest set of rapids of the Petite River. Located just 1.5 hours from Halifax, this quiet and private rental is just off the main road giving quick access to the wide range of local interest and activities. Its the perfect location for a romantic get away for two or a personal retreat. The house is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, dishwasher and laundry facilities. It will sleep 2 in the main bedroom queen sized bed. The large deck which overlooks the river is accessed off the kitchen and includes a BBQ and outdoor dining facilities. Guests can enjoy a quiet evening on the deck listening to the river and watching the stars or build a bonfire in the riverside fire pit.
This is a charming cottage has a large deck that overlooks the rapids. You will enjoy the sound of the river from the house. It is cozy and comfortable.
This is a wonderful community close to local beaches, steeped with history and full of charm. Petite Riviere is just a few minutes away and has a general store (complete with liquor store). Have one of their wonderful cups of coffee and enjoy a few minutes on their deck sharing a yarn with the locals. If the cottage is booked for the dates you are looking for or you need a bit more space don't hesitate to drop me a line, I know a few lovely places nearby that might just suit what you are looking for.

That is really up to the guest. I find many people really enjoy a quiet get away to wind down and relax. If they want to connect I'm happy to visit but I want to respect people's privacy.
I'd like you to feel at home and respect the place as your own. Please no smoking or pets.
Originally from Ontario, I made Nova Scotia my home almost 10 years ago. I love all kinds of outdoor activity especially sailing. I also enjoy photography, my partner and I just published a book called the Waterfalls of Nova Scotia which has been quite an exciting project.
