Whynacht's Point is one of several peninsulas jutting out into St. Margaret's Bay and is a very popular destination for boaters. Nearly surrounded by saltwater, it is widely recognized as a micro-climate that seems to defy fog. Deer, fox and pheasants share "The Point" with osprey, eagles and Great Blue Heron, all of which are often seen from the cottage. Canoeists and kayakers have water access at the bottom of the lane while Whynacht's Point Road, leading to the cottage, offers a peaceful half-hour stroll along the shore. The area around Whynacht's Point is surrounded by spectacular beaches, historic towns, fine dining, galleries, craft and antique stores. The St. Margaret's Bay cycling/walking Trail is only minutes away and all amenities (grocery stores, gas stations banks, drug stores, liquor store, etc.) are less than a ten-minute drive from the cottage. Guests can also walk to the White Sails Bakery and Deli in ten minutes or so, recently included in "Where to Eat in Canada," where tourtiere, Angus burgers, Montreal smoked meat, fish chowder, croissants and sugar pies may be found in abundance.
