Hidden at the end of a winding driveway in the centre of a concealed ocean front property, Ocean’s Playground is a delightful vacation home with a view that quite simply takes your breath away. Ocean’s Playground Cottage is located on Nova Scotia’s picturesque Lighthouse Route in the secluded seaside community of Bear Point; a small fishing village, where life revolves around the sea. The scenery is captivating - Cape Islanders and Lobster boats float past, while sea birds fly overhead. Occasionally a deer will wander into the garden for a look around.
Waterfront Description & Nearby Activities
Just 5 minutes to Barrington Passage; 35 minutes to the historic town of Shelburne and 45 minutes to Yarmouth, this delightful Nova Scotia cottage rental is close enough to civilization, but just far away enough to “get away from it all”.

Sand Hills Beach with its lovely white sand dunes is about 20 minutes away, while the fantastic Hawk Beach on Cape Sable Island is approximately 20 minutes drive.

Additional Bedroom Information
The original 180 year old homestead has been completely renovated, updating the home while maintaining its original charm. A huge great room with large picture windows capitalizes on the spectacular ocean vistas. Two comfortable couches, a couple of antique rocking chairs and a functional dining set, make this a welcoming space.
Completing the downstairs floor plan is a large fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, den, a 4-piece bathroom with laundry facilities and a sunny master bedroom with a queen size bed and an ocean view. Upstairs are two charming bedrooms – one with two twin beds; the other with a ¾ size bed and a 2-piece powder room.
From the great room, walk out onto the deck and enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the sun-lit seas. Breathe in the fresh ocean breezes and watch fishing vessels cruise by on their way to work. With over 1000 feet of ocean frontage and a huge garden, Ocean’s Playground is an ideal location for families. There is plenty of safe playing space for children by the cottage itself and a “kid tested” play park a little ways down the road. The large lawn is an ideal practice green for the golfing enthusiast. So before you head off to the local golf course, grab the cottage clubs and practice your putting.
