“very beautiful and peaceful place to stay and enjoy.”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We received a warm and friendly welcome and enjoyed a quiet week in a very clean and cozy cottage .A great view and waterfront access with boats to enjoy . Located close to the Bean and Bike Cafe,walking trails ,beaches and parks. For the one rainy day we had we were only 15 minutes from Bayer's Lake ,so we browsed the many stores. I highly recommend both this cottage and flip key ,this was my first time renting over the internet ,I was very nervous.Will not hesitate the next time it was all I expected and more.

“Very comfortable feel at home quiet accommodation”

I stayed for 6 nights from mid May with my partner and my parents who are in their 70s. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen well equipped, and there was a nice sitting area to watch tv. Wifi service was good. it was a quiet place backing onto a lake, and my partner and I enjoyed being able to go out in one of the canoes there and enjoy the quiet and the natural views.

We were able to get in and out of Halifax downtown easily, and also to do day trips along the coast.

If I were to return to the area, I would stay here again.

Very private location on a lake within easy driving to Halifax and all the rural Nova Scotia attractions. Nice and quiet, Very clean, comfortable and spacious accommodations. Excellent service by the owner. Perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a quiet family holiday.

“A Relaxing Apartment on a Lake”
Reviewed 26 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

This is a very good vacation apartment. Jean was very helpful and even accepted PayPal as payment for the first time. Knut, Jean's administrative partner, provided a refil for the grill's propane tank and gave us a bunch of freshly smoked mackeral which were delicious. The grill was somewhat tempermental with the starter but at least there was a grill! The available motor boat didn't start when we tried it. So we went on the paddle boat which was fun. The trampolene was also a nice touch but I would recommend wearing socks that can get dirty because your feet will get a black rubber coating from it. I'm not sure if this is normal - it probably is when it's out all the time. The toilet tends to clog up easily but there is a plunger available if it does. The tap water doesn't need any filtering - I couldn't taste any additives like I usually can at my own home. The wireless internet seemed spotty in the master bedroom at times but mostly fine. The bed was comfortable in the master bedroom and the kids seemed fine with theirs. All facilities were provided as advertised - except the motor boat which was an added feature anyway. Jean is a very considerate and thoughtful hostess. I would not hesitate to rent the space again.
