Property Description

Our quiet oceanfront Cooperage Cottage sits sheltered by tall oak, pine and spruce trees on five private acres of forest and salt marsh. The surrounding area is mostly summer cottages with some year-round residents. It is conveniently located 45 minutes from Halifax and it is close to Chester, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg.

An oceanfront two story, south facing, fully equipped chalet-style house perfect for couples or families. Each level has a living area, bedroom and bathroom.

The upper level bedroom has a queen bed. The lower level bedroom has two extra long twin beds which can be placed together to make a king bed. Of the two sofas in the lower level living area, one is a La-Z-Boy queen mattress pull-out to accommodate extra guests.

The kitchen is fully equipped including a microwave oven and dishwasher.

Off the upper level living area there is a deck where you can enjoy outdoor meals in the summer with gentle cooling sea breezes. The lower level living area includes satellite TV, games, and a propane fireplace.

There are two full bathrooms, one on each level. The washer & dryer are located in the lower level bathroom. Bathroom towels, beach towels, and linens are provided.

WIFI, BBQ, bicycles and helmets are on site.

At the shoreline of the property you can see the ruins of an old working cooperage. A century ago, wooden barrels were built here for the fishing industry and Chester Basin was well known for its many cooperages. Here, chairs welcome you to enjoy the lovely island views and in the summer you will discover why this area is a popular boating destination. The water is accessible so maybe you prefer to go for a swim or rent a kayak.

One of the islands you can see from here is the legendary Oak Island which is famous for many theories of possible buried treasure. Treasure hunters have been searching for the past 150 years and continue today.

Tranquil Hideaway with Convenient Access to Many Attractions

Charming home with its own bay. Within minutes of grabbing our morning coffee, members of our party of six adults were either exploring the bay or taking in the morning from the second story porch. So peaceful. The house is delightful and very functional. There is enough space to spread out a bit and two bathrooms - so no lines. We used the home as... Read More

We had a wonderful stay!

Cooperage Cortage was just perfect. It was clean, well equipped, and felt like a home away from home. It is set on a lovely piece of land looking out onto the water. Our kids were able to run and play, while we relaxed and took in the peacefulness of our surroundings. Wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommend!

Well cared for, and as advertised

Property has two spacious bedrooms, and two floors with good sound separation. It is large & bright enough that if the weather was poor, you would not go stir crazy and you would be able to spread out, etc. The kitchen is, as noted in the ad, compact. This means that the fridge is on the small side, and you really can only have one person in th... Read More

Beautiful Chester stay

We stayed at this cottage for two nights. We were two couples and two toddlers. The cottage was decorated with great taste, it was spaceous and well maintained. The owner had already warned us that the cottage was not child-proof but we managed just fine, even so. We arrived pretty late at the cottage and were greatly surprised to find a compliment...
