Heavenly Shores is a brand new sea-side cottage located in White Sands and situated on 6+ beautiful acres with 350’ of shoreline frontage on the Northumberland Strait. Set back from the road and surrounded by peaceful pastures, guests can enjoy incredible, panoramic ocean views from every room. The cottage has a 40’ deck with an 8’ deep covered porch facing the water, which provides cool ocean breezes and breath taking views of Pictou Island and Nova Scotia. While relaxing on the porch, you are likely to see all kinds of wildlife including whales, porpoises, bald eagles, seals and much more.
This lovely open-concept cottage has 2 bedrooms with brand new queen size beds and bedding, plenty of closet space and a full bath, which includes a washer and dryer with a full size tub/shower. There is also a clothes line for those of you who appreciate the sweet smell of ocean air on your clothes and linens. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, oven, microwave, dish washer, coffee maker, toaster oven, electric tea kettle, dishes, cutlery and cookware. The drinking water is filtered by an ultraviolet filter system.
Our cottage was completed during the summer of 2016. The lawn was seeded last fall and the pictures do not reflect what the landscape will look like when guests stay at our cottage in 2017.
There is plenty of space to roam on this 6+ acre property. The cottage is set back about 150' from the sea. There is a cliff at the shoreline, which prevents beach access. For those of you who enjoy swimming and beach combing, there is a sandy beach less than a mile away off Cape Bear Road and Northumberland Provincial Park is a short drive.
You will want to spend lots of time on the porch, enjoying sweeping views of the sea and all of the wildlife that it attracts. Although you may never want to leave the cottage, there is plenty of exploring that you can do in this beautiful part of the island, including wine tasting at Rossignol Winery, visiting the Cape Bear Lighthouse, Wood Islands Information Center and Lighthouse, and the quaint villages of Murray Harbour and Murray River with some great little restaurants. We are about a 20 minute drive from the Wood Islands Ferry and a half hour to Montague for shopping. Besides enjoying the local talent with many ceilidhs and musical events, we also enjoy bike riding along the very scenic Cape Bear Road as well as nearby Confederation Trail.+ More
