The property boasts lovely gardens and a peaceful backyard with a brook and fruit trees. With Hirtles and Kingsburg beaches around the corner, you have all the benefits of the beautiful Kingsburg Peninsula, yet the privacy of a quiet retreat off the main road. The UNESCO heritage town of Lunenburg, with its many attractions, restaurants and shops, is only a 15 minute drive along the shore. Mahone Bay is a ½ hour drive, and Halifax (and the airport) are a 1½ hour drive. This is a popular area for hiking and biking as well.More

Yes, these renters were the first of the season and we had some unfortunate surprises, as well as new cleaning help. These issues have all been addressed, including a new stove/oven, so hopefully renters going forward will have a more favourable experience.
