Novia Scotia Cottage

We stayed in Novia Scotia on the Umberland Straits in a cottage. It was very nice, quiet and it was a vacation with our dogs. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We did not have instructions for the TV though. But we were there for the hiking trails, and the beach. The sunsets from the cottage deck were beautiful, the beach was quiet and great for our dogs. All in all, we will be back. If you got to this area, remember you will have to travel! There is alot of space.

The cabin itself is rustic and quaint. The care taker however lives in a building about 30ft away from this cabin and this is not mentioned in the add and conveniently hiddden from the pictures. Everytime you step out the front door you see him in the driveway. This is a 2 bedroom house not 3 bedroom, and the 2 bedrooms are separated by a wooden divider about 7ft high. The wall does not even go all the way to the ceiling. The dock is very nice to have and the lake is fairly quiet, but the water at the end of the dock is about 18" deep, not ideal for swimming. You can walk out 100 yards in the mud before its up to your head.. The cabin is alright but not particularly private, and the dock is not well suited for swimming. Just be aware of this before you rent the cabin. p.s. fireplace was not usable in the summer, not that it was cold but would have been nice at night

Being newly married, I wanted to surprise my husband with a charming retreat that had all the modern amenities plus adventure. We found this and so much more. Breathtaking sunsets, pristine swimming, complete privacy and memories to last a lifetime. With Eastport and Canada so close by you can be as busy as you choose or sit back on the deck eating lobster watching the bald eagles all evening. We hope to return soon. If you are lucky enough to visit only tell the people you cherish the most. This is a very special destination!
love the antique cabin charm!

We were guests at an evening party in this wonderful historic log cabin. The details and built-in fixtures most reminded me of lodges I've visited in the Adirondacks. The large lakeside decks are perfect for outdoor living, and the main sitting room, focused on the original stone fireplace, kept us together and talking well into the evening. Even though I live in Perry myself, I wouldn't hesitate to stay in Brookside. We know the owner and resident caretaker, and think they are most hospitable as well, adding a lot in interest and local color (the caretaker) to a visiting experience. The convenience of running water, plumbing, and up-to-date kitchen area would make a visit so easy. Plus! Boyden Lake is easily accessible via a staircase and dock right off the deck.
