This home is in great shape and located in a very private, peaceful area on the river. You cannot beat the view from the deck. It is well equipped with kitchen equipment, linens and games. The only thing we found confusing was the air conditioner. It is located in the living room and we couldn’t figure out how to get it to the bedrooms. We used fans to try and pull the cool air back but it still got quite warm during the day.
The owner, Valerie, was easily accessible through text and responded quickly to any questions we had.
All in all, we had a lovely visit in Pictou and enjoyed the house immensely.
We did utilize this central location and made daily trips. With an early start and an evening drive back, you can access PEI, Cape Breton's Cabot Trail, and popular spots within Nova Scotia (Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Bay of Fundy, etc.) Locally, you are within blocks of the local shops and restaurants (Eat at Sharon's one block away). Sobey's is a 10 minute drive at most. Friendly small town atmosphere.
Here's the point form version...
- Warm welcome with a briefing tour
- Informative "House Binder" with both house & local information (ie" grocery location, nearby restaurants, etc.)
- Lots of pamphlets encompassing many East Coast attractions
- Historic home lovingly restored has all of the original charm, yet updated with all of the modern conveniences
- Clean, clean, clean
-Comfortable bed, extra bedding and plenty of nice towels
- Essentials within, so no need to pack (ie: laundry/dish soap, salt & pepper, coffee, sugar)
-Outside, you can gloat as both locals and fellow tourists walk by, seeing you relaxing on the porch among Ginny's beautiful gardens with a view of the harbour.
Heartfelt Thanks to Ron & Ginny for providing us a wonderful stay!
