“Perhaps heaven is cold, but the houses there have fireplaces”

I did a lot to prepare my trip well, as it was the Valentine surprise for my wife. I asked if the house was warm, if there was a fireplace with real fire, etc. I have got ordinary answers and decided to risk a three-hour journey from Halifax to spend the days. From the moment we arrive at Blue Heron, we had positive surprises. The house was warm and we rather had to cool it down. The fireplace was not natural but gas, but it looked much better than we expected, and we did not have to go out to bring logs as we have to do at home. You do not have to spent long minutes starting the fire. You just click, and there it is. The kitchen was equipped not only with all necessary equipment but there was also coffee, tea, oil, salt pepper, things that you would usually have in your kitchen and you would most probably forget to take with you. The interior is decorated with taste and being in the house is a positive aesthetic experience as well. Then what can you do in such a place in winter when the temperature is -14C? We had our snowshoes and when we saw a man walking a dog on the frozen bay, we decided to walk on the sea as well. We were lucky the sea was solidly frozen (you'd better check this before if you want to follow our example because it may be dangerous). You feel like on an a snow desert. The wind was so freezing, that our ordinary cream did not seem to work. So my next advice buy a good winter protection begore you decide to try this adventure.

This is a difficult review to write, as some aspects of the property are great and others not so great. I believe 4 stars is the correct rating, potential renters should consider the following:
Location - 5 stars - beautiful, peaceful, tranquil location on the water.
Property - 5 stars - very nice, relatively new house, the 50" plasma tv is great, nicely decorated.
Owner - 5 stars - very nice, helpful, accommodating.
Kitchen - 3 stars - an adequate hodge podge of everything needed.
Towels and linens - 2 stars - simply put, not the quality expected in a high end rental property.
Beds - 1 star - queen bed in front br is unusable, bunk beds very hard, queen bed in master
br has what appears to be a relatively new mattress, it is very hard and not comfortable.
In conclusion, I would recommend this property to a friend only if needed improvements are made.

Spent a week with an 8 and 12 year old. Fantastic spot. Lots to do within 15-30 minute drive. Gorgeous cottage with spectacular view. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Super clean too. Only downside was the beds and couches were not very comfortable. Cottage was just as advertised.
