This quaint, waterfront, winterized, 1 ½ storey cottage built in 1998 is set approximately 200 feet from the southern shoreline of the property. It is located well apart from the other cottage nearby to ensure your privacy. The cottage has an open floor concept with sitting area, fully equipped kitchen, and a 3-piece bathroom with shower on the main floor. The bedroom with a queen size bed and closet space is on the second floor. A barbeque has been provided on the front deck for your use, and there is a separate screened-in porch attached to the deck.
A converted retired coastal Cape Island fishing boat, the Danny Boy 5, is offered as a special service to our guests who require extra sleeping quarters. Originally from Arisaig, Nova Scotia, the Danny Boy is now “dry docked” on a gravel slip set alongside a beautiful pine forest. The boat is outfitted with a queen-size bed, a 3 piece bathroom and a screened-in porch.
