Serenity Cottage is a delightful "bachelor" cottage - a single level with an open concept living room, kitchen and bedroom. It is the ideal cottage for a couple to use as a base for exploring this beautiful area - St. Margaret's Bay, Halifax and the South Shore.

The flat has been completely renovated in the last year and is very well equipped with all the modern amenities. Large windows overlook the pristine waters of Hackett's Cove and to several islands in the distance.

The modern kitchen has a large island and plenty of room for storage as well food preparation. Or dine outside on the deck, where there is a table, chairs and a gas barbeque. The living room has comfortable seating and a large desk with a flat screen TV. The bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed and is separated from the living room with a partition wall. In the bathroom you will find a custom tiled shower, washer and dryer and composting toilet.

The cottage is the upper level of a large boat shed which is situated on a private 5 acre point at the tip of the Hackett's Cove, so it has beautiful 180 degree water views. The wharf is used by fishermen during lobster fishing season but in the summer it is a quiet place where you can go for a swim, snorkel or cast a fishing line. At low tide the water off the wharf is 16 feet deep. A deep anchor mooring is available.

Serenity Cottage is located just off Route 333 in Hackett's Cove, which is only 35 minutes from the airport, and 30 minutes to downtown Halifax. The famous fishing village of Peggy's Cove is 10 minutes away.

Tantallon (10 minutes away) has all the amenities you will need (grocery stores, liquor store, public library, gas stations, movie rentals, take-out restaurants, etc.) however there is a convenience store 5 minutes away, which has all the basics. There is a charming restaurant within walking distance of this cottage.

No Smoking indoors.

Would definitely recommend!

"Serenity" is definitely the best way to describe this place. Beautiful view of the coast and the sunsets cannot be beat! Host is very prompt with responses and was able to accommodate my late evening arrival. Would definitely recommend.

Would love to come back!

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We got to explore Peggy's cove and many other little gems along the way. We spent most of our nights hanging around the fire and watching the sunset. We would love to come back and visit again In the future!

The name says it all

The Serenity Cottage say's it all in the name. Amazing spot right in Hacketts Cove; beautiful sunrises even better sunset's in a quite area. Cottage was spacious, with full kitchen, laundry, and all other amenities. Peggy's Cove is maybe 15 minutes away, Halifax about 30, other beaches in the area are within 30 minutes also. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

A little slice of heaven

We absolutely and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Serenity Cottage in Hackett's Cove. The view is spectacular and the cottage more than met all of our needs. The openness and airiness of the cottage is a welcome feature. Being able to BBQ was an added bonus. We feasted on the best lobster and seafood and found Halifax particularly awesome. Everything we needed could be found at the cottage. The morning coffee view speaks for itself. We will most certainly be back at some point down the road. Thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven with us.
