Sea Star Cottage is a charming two-bedroom cottage overlooking Indian Harbour and it's islands. The cottage is over one hundred years old but has been completely restored in the past year and is now a wonderful combination of old and new. This is the ideal place to spend a quiet week and truly get away from it all.

The main floor of this cheerful cottage has a living room (with seating for four) that enjoys a view over the water. The open plan dining area and well-conceived kitchen are bright and fully equipped. The bathroom has all new fixtures, including a combination bathtub/shower, and a stacking washer and dryer. Upstairs are the two bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds.

Soak up the sun on the large back deck, or barbeque your meal on the propane grill.

A wooded path leads to the backside of the island, which looks out to the mouth of St. Margaret's Bay and the open ocean beyond. Here you can sit on white granite boulders, and rarely see another soul. It is a great place to whale watch - you might spot a minke or humpback whale swimming by.

Just a few minutes walk down the road is Paddy's Head Beach, a small and lovely sandy beach with crystal clear water. This beach is known to be one of the best locations in the province for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Sea Star Cottage is located in Indian Harbour, on Paddy's Head Island, which is accessible by bridge. It is just over an hour from the airport, 40 minutes to downtown Halifax and also near many beautiful beaches in St. Margaret's Bay.

The famous fishing village and lighthouse at Peggy's Cove is 5 minutes away. Tantallon has all the amenities you will need (grocery stores, liquor store, public library, gas stations, movie rentals, take-out restaurants, etc.) and is a 15 minute drive away. There is a local convenience store within a 5 minute drive where you can get all the basics.

Peaceful, lovely vacation

This cottage is very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location is lovely, especially the backyard passage to the rocks and ocean. Jeanne is a lovely, thoughtful, hospitable host. We've stayed at her cottages multiple times. 5 stars.

Perfect cottage for our small family!

This cottage was absolutely perfect for our small family. The cottage is very well equipped, we cooked many meals and even cooked our own fresh lobster purchased just down the road! As for being baby-friendly, Jeanne arranged a pack n play for us which was so appreciated. Bonus was that the curtain in the “kids room” was blackout! It was a beautiful place to sit and relax as well as explore the quiet beautiful surroundings. It is also situated very centrally to explore the area. We would love to return!

Outstanding host

Peace & quiet in a charming spot close to all the reasons for visiting that portion of Nova Scotia. Enjoying sunsets on the rocks behind the cottage will be a family memory for years to come. A great spot with an outstanding host.

Beautiful Cottage!

An amazing little cottage with stellar views! We loved how the cottage was secluded but close enough to get to places. The cottage was exceptionally clean and had a stylish decor. Jeanne was great to provide us with a play-pen to save us the hassle of flying with one. We felt right at home here! A beautiful place to vacation!

Charming cottage

What a charming cottage! Loved everything about this place! The cottage is a perfect mix of old and new. Loved the wooden floors and the exposed ceiling. The little path to the back of the "island" is soo cute and green and I spent a large amount of my time on the rocks watching the water. Saw lots of seals and birds of course. It is public but my 4 days spent there I only saw a few people walking their dogs. The rocks and beach are not very kid friendly I would say but for adults its the best spot. The cottage itself had everything I needed. Nice collection of games. Very large deck in the back. Would love to return for some R&R if I am ever in the area again!
