“the best cottage we have ever stayed in”

we have rented cottages throughout the UK, US and Canada and I can say that without any doubt the Starfish Cottage is the best we have ever stayed in, the cottage was spotless when we arrived and we were amazed at the attention to detail that Susanne and Gavin had put into every aspect of making our stay enjoyable, their efforts are certainly the yardstick that we will use to measure any future rentals by.
The location is great for both peace and quite and for visiting the whole of the Annapolis valley, would we book the cottage again... most definitively, thanks for for your help in making our holiday that extra bit special

Beautiful cottage with wonderful hosts who made everything very easy indeed. On the odd occasion we saw the folks living nearby they were also very welcoming (sorry about the Sunday morning car alarm everyone!).The cottage was easy to find and a good base for all we wanted to see, comfortable and warm with lovely views. All appliances/technology nicely modern with a good collection of DVD's to use. We'd rent again in an instant, thank you so much S+G!

“Starfish Cottage Port George NS”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Not only is the Starfish Cottage situated in a perfect spot to enjoy the serenity and peacefulness that Nova Scotia has to offer, the thoughtfulness that the owners have put into the cottage made our stay absolutely amazing. This is our second stay at this cottage and it feels like home to us when we are there. We can't wait to return!

“It's a gem of a cottage, with a gorgious view on the bay!”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I really enjoyed our week at the Starfish Cottage. Much helpful information is provided in a Welcome Book. Moreover Susanne and Gavin were always available to answer all our questions through e-mail or by the phone. These people work really hard to make sure your stay at the cottage will exceed your expectations. The cleanliness, beauty and amenities offered at Starfish surpass many other excellent cottages. Every detail is well thought of. It is actually close to perfection on every front. What a relaxing atmosphere! It's a real gem!
Walking or jogging is very appropriate along the road by the shore. Seals can be seen at mid-tides. Fishermen try their bates by the creek on the bay. A small and rustic art shop was open and offered local quality hand-made products. Sunsets are fabulous and always unique.
We also enjoyed the sun on the patio behind the cottage. Reading and meditating with such a view on the bay is very relaxing and inspiring. Birds (even hummingbirds and ospreys) are always present close-by or far on the horizon.
The cottage is also well situated for touring Nova Scotia (Wolfville - 50 min., Lunenburg/Mahone Bay - 1:30 min, Digby - 1 hour, Halifax - 1:45).
Our best advice to those wanting to rent this cottage is to book early!

“Perfect week at starfish cottage”

we had a perfect week at starfish cottage. Susanne prepared the cottage lovley. Everthing was in the right place and looks so nice. She backed starfish cockies for us. We played ball every evening and looked at the Sunset. Especially our kids wehre a little bit sad when we Luft.

Port George is a very good spot to visit the annapolis valley and the bay of fundy. We visited digby neck for a whale watching tour, Annapolis Royal and the Kejmjiuk National Park for a kajak tour
