2 bedroom cottage, sand beach, fireplace, jacuzzi, washer and dryer!

Located close to Halifax in the Queensland area, and across the street from a beautiful and warm sandy beach, the Periwinkle Cottage is the perfect Nova Scotia seaside get-away for a relaxing escape to find summer beach time or autumn colours. This quaint 100 year old cottage began its life as a carriage house, and was later converted into a two bedroom holiday property.

All rooms enjoy fully vaulted cathedral ceilings providing a feeling of space and openness. The large outdoor wrap-around deck and BBQ adds to the available living area and provides fabulous views of the adjacent beach and ocean, while the stone wood-burning fireplace in the living room gives off ample early/late season heat and ambiance. The Periwinkle Cottage is an evolving blend of old and new; with quirky old-building idiosyncrasies and antiques situated alongside modern conveniences like quality linens, new granite kitchen counter tops, WIFI, a jetted tub, and Nespresso coffee maker. The two bedrooms are comfortable, with a queen sized pillow-topper double bed in one and built-in cozy children's bunks in the other. New addition Spring 2018 houses washer and dryer.

The Periwinkle has been extensively renovated under new ownership while retaining its original charm. High Speed Internet is available. The cottage sleeps a maximum of four people and is best suited for either a couple, or a family with two children. This is a calm and relaxing location intended for slow days and recharging for a small group. It is less suitable for groups of four adults, and not appropriate for party gatherings.

The Periwinkle Cottage is available for weekly rentals from lobster season in early June through to the climax of the intense autumn leaf colours in late October. The double-paned, easy siding Kohler windows, the stone fireplace, baseboard heaters and large new ceiling fan ensure comfort and warmth throughout the shoulder seasons, and the airiness of the vaulted ceilings ensure comfort and easy-breathing during the warmer summer months. This is a cozy little cottage, a perfect setting for exploring all Nova Scotia has to offer.
