The Prospector's Cottage is a simple century home 1/2 way bet. Halifax & Cape Breton Island. One of our guests called it "apartment therapy", surrounded by nature, wildlife, peace and quiet. A retreat but not remote! Come write your novel, paint, breathe...
Make yourselves at home but respect others. You'll find it reasonably clean (we try but you're living in nature. Expect to bring some inside!!). You'll find fresh, clean linens; it's been swept and vacuumed, bathrooms and kitchens cleaned. Please leave the cottage as 'you' would expect to find it! :-) You're helping us keep things nice for our guests to follow. Picking flowers for the cottage is encouraged! Thanks and enjoy your stay at the Prospector's Cottage.

A semi-retired English teacher and ex-nerd are busier than ever with a wide range of interests from wild foraging and hiking to painting, photography and writing - and of course, our growing tree seedling business at Being immersed in natural surroundings is one of the very best things about living on the East Coast of Nova Scotia. What would you like to see? Where would you like to go? What would you like to talk about? We're university educated and always ready to have a gab about .. well, anything and everything. We love meeting people.
