Guest Testimonials

We both LOVE Nova Scotia! This cottage was absolutely the nicest we have stayed in during our three summers here.  Incredible view-always interesting sights, especially the seals.  Your house had everything we needed and is the perfect size.  Our 2 Golden Retrievers and 1 Border Collie had a ball playing in the water out front.  They and we vote to return. Thanks for allowing us to bring the dogs.

 Absolutely charming ocean-side house....
Orchard Point was more than I had hoped for. My 6 year old daughter and I shared a week together at this amazingly charming beach house. There are gorgeous beaches within a short driving distance. If you're in for a bit of a rock climb, you could go swimming right outside the house as well. The views from the front door were simply breath-taking. Honestly... just pack lightly, and go! Everything you need is right at the house. I would definitely recommend Orchard Point. We hope to be back soon to build more memories!

Description

Situated on 3 private acres, Sea Star Cottage is a charming Nova Scotia vacation home in the picturesque fishing village of Port Mouton. Set back from the road and screened by mature trees and bushes the large garden is private and safe for little ones to play.

Sunlight streams in through the windows giving this Nova Scotia cottage a bright and cheerful atmosphere. Antique furnishing and modern decor have been tastefully combined to create an attractive family friendly home that appeals to both adult and child alike. The main floor features a living room, dining room, study, 3-piece bathroom and a spacious eat-in kitchen. The study is bursting with interesting books and games, while the living room is adorned with a fascinating collection of local maps and sea charts. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 2 with double beds and the other with a queen size bed. Two of the rooms have adjoining private 3-piece bathrooms.

The deck; complete with gas BBQ and lawn chairs extends the living area and provides a vantage point to enjoy the pastoral view: a fenced pasture that is home to a family of friendly sheep. There is a path that leads through the pasture and onto a wooded track that leads to a private rocky shoreline with a panoramic view of Port Mouton Bay and its many islands. With rolled beach stones and large granite boulders, the waterfront is just waiting to be explored. Around ever bend is a new adventure and a new ocean view.

A short walk down the road brings you to Carter's Beach, one of the jewels of Nova Scotia's South Shore, with its triple crescents of fine white sand ringed by dunes and wrapped around the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Port Mouton Harbour.

The unsurpassed natural beauty of Port Mouton has led Parks Canada to preserve its headlands as a national wilderness area containing two pristine beaches. The eastern entrance to the national park is within easy hiking distance of Sea Star Cottage. For more hiking, head to Kejimkujik National Park's Seaside Adjunct wilderness where you will find noisy seals basking on the rocks and a multitude of sea birds overhead.

So for a holiday that involves around going to the beach, enjoying a leisurely evening meal, playing games around the kitchen table and exploring the local area, Sea Star Cottage offers all that and more!

Guestbook

"We enjoyed our stay at the rustic and quaint Sea star cottage in July. There was more than enough room for our family of five. Importantly, the Wi-Fi worked well for our kids :) Having laundry and all the amenities of a regular home made our stay comfortable. The location is very quiet, and the grounds around the home are almost park-like, with mature apple trees and a well-kept lawn. There is a nice walk down the pathway through the back field to the rocky shoreline. The night skies were full of bright stars; I was able to photograph the Milky Way with ease.

Carter's Beach is an easy 10-minute walk down the road, but the area is also central to other beautiful beaches, with shopping (and a great skate park) in Liverpool, only 15 minutes' drive away. Locally we had a good take-out dinner from the Seascape restaurant just down the road.

Overall our stay was very enjoyable, and I would not hesitate to recommend it as a perfect vacation home for a family."
