Updated Apr 14, 2014
This property offers individual cottages situated on the waterfront of Prince's Inlet. These accommodations are well suited for guests who prefer more private accommodations in a natural or secluded setting. The town of Lunenburg is a 10-minute drive away.

All cottages are smoke free and include free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen (including a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, dishware and utensils), a BBQ, a fireplace, a jetted tub, a shower and a TV and DVD player (no air conditioning). The cottages are not wheelchair accessible. Dogs are permitted in some cottages at no additional fee.

Other on-site amenities include free parking and guest laundry facilities. This property does not offer an on-site restaurant.

Highway 3 and the Lunenburg Yacht Club are both within a 5-minute drive. Lunenburg attractions are about 10 minutes away by car and include the Lunenburg Opera House, the Lunenburg Historical Society and the Bluenose II reconstruction site. The Bluenose Golf Club and the Halifax & Southwestern Railway Museum are both an 11-minute drive away.

Access to Highway 103 is a 15-minute drive away, while Halifax and the Halifax International Airport (YHZ) are both about 80 minutes away by car. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
