Our magnificent Beach Haven House is located on a private and peaceful peninsula on Nova Scotias south shore, near the charming village of Beach Meadows, between Liverpool (15 minute drive) and Bridgewater (30 minute drive). It is 1.5 hours southwest of Halifax.

A stay at Beach Haven House is so much more than a vacation, it

affords the opportunity for the experience of a lifetime.

Restoration awaits in the peaceful ambiance of this private 6 acre

ocean side retreat located on a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean.

Absorb the beauty of the sights, sounds and smells of the sea from

our own sand and pebble beach or amble down our down our lane for 2

minutes and arrive at an all but deserted world class white sand

beach.

Absolutely amazing 270 degree views of the open ocean, the waves

breaking on the reef, Frying Pan Island and its scenic lighthouse

and the birds, seals and other wildlife that abound can be found

outdoors or in the spacious sun room. Our own saltwater pond provides

a perfect spot for safe adventures for children, such as learning to

kayak. In the executive level 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house the

comfortable furnishings and ocean views and invite relaxation. A

glorious pine cathedral ceiling crowns the open concept living room,

dining room and kitchen.

The upper level of Beach Haven house provides more than 1400 square

feet of first class accommodation for up to 8 persons (2 queens, 2

singles, 1 double). The open concept living room, dinning room and

kitchen has a glorious pine cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, a

Jotul woodstove/fireplace and wonderful ocean views. The glassed in

sun porch provides panoramic 270 degree views of the open ocean and

the waves from England and France breaking on the reef, as well as

Frying Pan Island and with the scenic Port Medway lighthouse. The sun

porch is also an ideal place to watch the many birds and animals that

frequent the property.

Guests who wish may have double the space, and the views, by adding

on the spacious and bright lower level of Beach Haven. Previously

known as '''Wind Song'and the summer home of a Swiss gentleman for 14

years until we bought it in 2003, Beach Haven has an interesting

'architectural' history. The main level was built as a complete house

(with the three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open concept living room,

dining room and kitchen all with a pine cathedral ceiling). He then

had the whole house raised and put in a complete downstairs, so the

'lower level' is much higher and brighter then a conventional

basement, it is about 2.5 feet below grade. In keeping with the Swiss

style, there is no connecting inside stairway between the main level

and the lower level, one goes in to the lower level directly from the

outside. It is beautifully finished with hardwood floors and pine

walls. One of the main features of interest in the recreation room is

the regulation Brunswick slate pool table. Consisting of a huge

recreation room, large bedroom (twins) and a spacious three piece

bath, this extra space is a perfect add on for large family

gatherings or offers a quiet working space for guests who are taking

a '''working holiday'.

This lower level is available only to families or groups who are

renting the main level (that is we never rent it as a separate unit)

for an extra fee of $600 (high season, shoulder season, $300/per

week.

Assurance of quality is featured with excellent housekeeping and a

fully equipped home-away from home: spacious glassed in sun porch,

ocean-view deck with outdoor furniture, jotul woodstove fireplace,

kitchen with 6 full-sized appliances (washer, dryer,dishwasher,

fridge, stove, microwave), kitchenware, very comfortable beds (2

queens, 4 singles, 1 double), excellent linens, satellite TV, VCR,

phone/fax, stereo, quality furnishings, books and games, picnic

table,gas BBQ.

On Property

opportunities, from relaxing on the deck with a book to more active

pursuits such as ocean swimming and beach combing. It's a dream

location for photographers and other artists. An organic vegetable

and herb garden, a lily pond, flower beds and closed cropped lawns

are available close to the house. Groomed paths lead to the

saltwater pond and your own private sand and pebble beach, offering

endless opportunities for swimming, beach combing, exploring the

rocks and tidal pools, beach campfires, bird spotting (e.g. eagles,

cormorants, osprey, sea ducks,piping plovers) and animal watching

(e.g. seals,foxes, rabbits, raccoons). An all-but-deserted world

class white sand beach is a two minute stroll down our private lane.

Beds: 2 Queen Beds, 1 Double Bed, 3 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful week we had at Beach Haven-it was perfect for us. Plenty of space and variety of things to do for all tastes. There is plenty to do for all interests - charming villages to explore, sandy beach, rocky coves, a large attractive house with beautiful water views and plenty of space for everyone to find a quiet corner to read or play games - truly a great spot to relax and recharge. Susan and extended family, Boyds, Maryland


"This is IT! It's fabulous, even before I got to the house I could tell that this is what I would call a get away. And the house itself is beautiful----all the wood! And the views of the sea from all those windows. If I just want to check out from the world this is the place for me. Unfortunately, no photo can begin to capture how amazing this place really is." Dr. P.A.S, Canada.

Cetait un sejour des plus agreables.....le chalet et les liseux [ont] ete si magnifiques. C'est un (Translation) "This was a most agreeable stay....the house and the location were so magnificent. They've taken a lot of care to provide such a return to nature."

"Carol,
We had a wonderful time in Nova Scotia. Thank you for providing such a spectacular rental property. Every night we saw the glorious moon and Venus on either side of it. The beach was spectacular. What a beautiful area of the world you have there! Thank you again."

GUEST COMMENT 2010

Just a quick note to thank for providing such wonderful accommodations at Beach Haven. Our stay was perfect and we were fortunate to have beach perfect weather for the entire week give or take a few hours of rain on Wednesday.

Our family was able to explore both beaches and all of the nooks and
crannies in between. For certain no stone was left unturned as the kids
collected shells, rocks and many other beach treasures they came upon.
The house suited us perfectly, provided all of the comforts of home and
enough room for all of us to never feel like we were tripping over one another.
The only draw back was that we didn't want the week to be over!!
