Description of the Tancook Island vacation cottage rental
Within walking distance of government ferry (15 minutes)
Pickup service for guests and luggage upon arrival and departure

Come rest and relax on Big Tancook Island in an original circa 1880, 1150 square foot,
Tancook cottage. This vacation rental has been lovingly restored maintaining the original woodwork. Situated on the Backalong side of the island, this charming cottage offers striking vistas of Mahone Bay, the mainland and spectacular sunsets. Let your body rhythm reset itself to the rise and fall of the tides and the sound of the ocean lapping on the shoreline which can be heard from every room in the cottage. Walk on your own rocky shoreline in search of sea glass and driftwood or take a refreshing swim.

After a day of outdoor activities, relax in one of the colourful Adirondack chairs to watch the ferry go by and enjoy the setting sun.

During Chester Race Week in August, sit on your own front lawn for first class viewing of the majestic J-Class sailboats.

Come breathe the sea air, hike, bike, beach comb and learn about a people and island steeped in seafaring history.

In rain or sunshine there is no better place to slowdown the pace of life, then Big Tancook Island on majestic Mahone Bay.

Tancook Island is a birdwatcher's paradise, has a swimming beach, endless wildflowers, incredible dark night skies and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

The cottage is owned by an artistic family which is reflected in the alternating blue and white exterior wall colours. The master bedroom offers a double bed, the second bedroom features a captain twin bed and there is a double pull out sofa in the living room. The main living area is bright, sunny and welcoming. The living room is tastefully furnished containing some thoughtfully selected antiques. The large kitchen window offers ever changing views of the bay and the sky. The bathroom is located off the living room and the washer and dryer are found in the porch.

The kitchen comes fully equipped and a BBQ and outdoor table and chairs are provided on the deck for outdoor dining.

Area Information
We are a unique community located approximately 6 miles off Chester, Nova Scotia - where vibrant artistry, a pristine natural environment, and a history rooted deeply in strong fishing traditions intertwine. We invite you to leave your cares on the mainland and take a relaxing hour long ferry ride to visit us across beautiful Mahone Bay - or feel welcome to sail into our protected cove and stay awhile.

Come breathe in the sea salt air. Enjoy hiking, biking, or beach combing for sea glass and shells. Take a walk to our museum where you will discover stories of days gone by, and be sure to visit our seasonal shops and galleries.

A day is rarely enough, so stay awhile in oceanfront accommodations. This way you won't miss the startling richness of our sunsets or any of the breathtaking beauty of our scenery.

Make Big Tancook your destination of choice to explore Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Chester and Peggy's Cove. In rain or shine, there is no place better to allow the pace of life to slow than Big Tancook Island.
