Our house is on the Atlantic ocean surrounded by 3 acres in a wooded area in the middle of natural environment. It's quiet, serene and secluded; yet forest animals such as deer, rabbits, porcupines etc. are nearby. You'll need a car to access the gated community and travel to see the rest of what the south shore area has to offer. It's a 15 minutes drive to Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, an iconic N.S. visitors' site. Our place is good for couples and families (with older kids).
