The Cape Cottage

11 Sweeny Lane, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

The first thing you’ll notice when you turn into the driveway is the spectacular view. Across the bay, the Cape Forchu lighthouse stands tall on a craggy outcrop. Great Blue Herons wade gracefully in the coastline tidal pools.

Settle into a settee overlooking the wide half-kilometre-long beach to watch the waves and wildlife. On the south side of the cottage is another deck, wind-sheltered and perfect for soaking up the sun while listening to the gentle lull of the surf.

If you prefer to dig your toes in the sand, it’s just a two-minute walk to the beach in front of the cottage. At the east end you can cross the road to access another sandy oasis – John’s Cove Beach.

Located just 15 minutes from Yarmouth, on Hwy. 304, the Cape Cottage sleeps two and features an open concept design with a back patio in addition to the front and side decks. A four piece bath, washer/dryer and high speed wifi are some of the conveniences provided. Cottage has full kitchen, with electric stove/oven, microwave and large fridge with side-by-side freezer. BBQ on back patio by garden. Flat screen TV & Netflix.
