Holiday Rental House
Over The Way Cottage offers pet-friendly accommodations in Martin's Point, Nova Scotia. It's conveniently located between Mahone Bay and Chester. Close to local attractions but out of the way enough to feel like a rural retreat. Originally built in the early 1900s, by the owners great grandparents, it has been remodelled to maintain some of the original elements—boasting a modern rustic charm. The holiday home is composed of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, fitted with free toiletries, and onsite laundry facilities. An oven and a microwave can be found in the kitchen and a new BBQ on the deck. A flat-screen TV with cable channels and free wifi are available. Free parking and 4 complimentary bikes are also provided. There is a multi-use use trail accessible behind the property; previously a rail...Over The Way Cottage offers pet-friendly accommodations in Martin's Point, Nova Scotia.

There is a multi-use use trail accessible behind the property; previously a railroad, it has been converted into a provincial trail. It's well maintained and ideal for walking and cycling. This area serves as a great home base to explore the greater south shore area. Wolfville, Peggy's Cove, and Kejimkujik National Park are easy day-trips allowing you to return to the cottage in time for dinner at a number of restaurants in Mahone Bay, Chester or Lunenburg. Hiking, sailing, whale watching, art galleries, farm markets, local artisans, golfing and live theatre are just some of the local attractions within 10-20 minutes of the guesthouse. The nearest airport is Robert L. Stanfield Airport, 95 km from Over The Way Cottage (1 hour 20 mins by car).More

The owner Jay did an outstanding job of ensuring the unit was well stocked with everything. This included local organic coffee and local wine. There was really nothing that was missing. It was spotless and we settled in quite well. Mahone Bay is a short...More
