Our cozy cabin experience is a blend of comfort and country-living - a great spot for a getaway, to enjoy a refreshing swim, canoe, kayak, read, listen to music, relax, reflect, walk through the adjoining 79-acre Xmas tree farm, luxuriate in the hammock ...


The chance to get away from it all, without having to "rough it", is offered by our small cabin, built in 2002, with pine from Michelle & Chris Bruhm's Mill - just down the Cornwall Road.

Доступно гостям

Our property is about 3 1/2 acres, with 350 feet of water-frontage. The south-west exposure provides gorgeous sunsets to enjoy from the decks, dock or the hammock.

Our cabin has one main room, with futon, table, chairs, and kitchenette. The small bedroom with lake-view, has a comfortable queen-size bed. The 3-piece bathroom, includes a shower, and heated tile floor. All rooms have their own electric heat, and both the main room and the bedroom have large ceiling fans.

The kitchen has a coffee maker, kettle, microwave, toaster, toaster-oven, fridge and two-burner portable cooking range. There is no dishwasher or full stove/oven.

The propane BBQ was new last season, and has a side burner, making outdoor cooking more convenient. Also available are a Weber charcoal BBQ and an outdoor propane burner, with pot and utensils for corn/lobster boils.

A starter-supply of teas, coffee, milk, sugar, basic condiments and a few goodies will greet your arrival. Alert - you're in the country! The nearest stores are a 20 minute drive away in New Germany, Barss Corner or Mahone Bay. If you prefer to eat out, there are dozens of choices - but once again, it's a 20-30 minute drive! We'll provide you with a list of our favourites.

Extra bedding is available, so the double futon can accommodate children, but the cottage is really not appropriate for four adults.

There's a Sony stereo, some music, books and games for your indoor enjoyment. There's also a SONY Bluetooth Dream Machine, which is handy if you've brought along your own digital music collection.

The wireless internet can be problematic at times; it's "country" internet. We have the latest Xplornet satellite internet, and the router is in our own house, next door. Weather and usage complications have a bearing on the signal. So if fast, 24-7 connectivity is important - this will be a definite concern. (Of course, some guests enjoy a little time somewhat "off the grid" and you can always resort to the Internet cafes in nearby communities.)

Many of our guests have commented on the warm, clear swimming which can be enjoyed at Church Lake. We have a 15-foot canoe and a small kayak plus an assortment of life jackets for your water enjoyment.

Last year, we purchased a Coleman screen house (11 ft x 11 ft) which will provide refuge on days when you'd like to be outside, but the mosquitos happen to be particularly "friendly"!

There's a large deck off the cabin, and another lakeside deck which contains a new, propane campfire pit. This is an easy, safer alternative to our old traditional fire pit.

Last year, off the campfire deck, we constructed a new cedar dock - for the privacy and exclusive use of our Airbnb guests. And if we're travelling, you're certainly welcome to use our old dock, too. It's a few hundred feet further along the lake path, and there are plenty of deck chairs at both locations.

Общение с гостями

The cottage keys will be in a lock box, and you'll have the combination well in advance of your arrival.

Our philosophy is to respect your privacy, so you'll be able to enjoy our property. But please know - if you need something, there's help. Our own house is next door, and so if we're on-site, that's easy. If we happen to be travelling during your visit, our property managers, Kathy and Janet will be available to assist you, as needed. You'll have their cell phone numbers in advance, and they're also in the guest binder.

By the way, Kathy's husband, Tim, offers an array of adventure, fishing and hiking tours, which may be of interest to you. You'll have their website address before you arrive, in case you'd like to contact him.

Our 3 night stay with Les was outstanding! The cottage is clean and perfectly appointed with every amenity imaginable. Les and Cynthia are so accommodating and pleasant. 20 minutes from mahone bay on a beautiful lake. We would defiantly return!

This is a great retreat. I have stayed for an extended period on two occasions! The cabin/cottage is comfy and everything you need to cook and bbq is provided. The bed is comfy. You can eat a meal in sight of the lake from right inside the cabin. The deck off the cabin is lovely but what's really terrific is the private deck and dock at the water. I used the kayak many mornings to explore the shore! The lake is crystal clear and warm enough for swimming even in late June. There is also a lovely fire pit! Les and Cynthia are available if needed and are very responsive to any requests or needs. Laddie is a delightful dog who loves treats and pets. If you need to get away from it all, see the stars, listen to loons, and spend quiet time on the water, this is the place for you.

Wow is the best way to start this review. Myself and my wife stayed at the cottage for 5 nights in October. Upon arrival we were greeted by Les with his big smile and friendly handshake who helped us in with our luggage to the beautiful cottage. The cottage was warm and inviting perched on a hill overlooking the picturesque Church lake which was surrounded by lush forrest. There is a short walk down from the back of the cottage to a small jetty where we sat most evenings with a glass of wine in hand to watch the sky change colours reflecting on the lake as the sun went down, such a quiet and serenely beautiful memory. Set in the woods on Les and Cynthia's property there was no other houses in sight which added to the peacefulness of our stay. The inside of the cottage was fitted with warm timbers and heated for the odd cold evening. The bed was spotless as was the whole cottage, with fresh bedding and soft towels, we looked forward to come back each evening after our daily excursions. Les and Cynthia went above and beyond their obligations as host's and even put some treats out for us on our night of arrival, what I especially liked was the Guinness awaiting me, being Irish this went down a treat. So I will finish by saying a big thanks to our wonderfully considerate hosts and I cannot recommend this property enough as it is not just a property but an amazing experience. Thank You

Cozy Cottage Retreat describes it perfectly! Beautiful location, wonderful hosts, who have put everything in the cottage that you will need. Great place to unwind (about 1hr) from the National Park and closer to many other points of interest. Thanks for the stay and hope to return again!

The cozy cottage was more then expected. It was perfect for a family of four with a large dog. Les, Cynthia and Laddie, were so welcoming that we felt like we were staying at our own family cottage. The lake is beautiful and great for an evening paddle while the sun sets. Far too many extras to mention. Lovely cottage, beautiful scenery, and excellent hosts, set the bar high for our first Airbnb stay.

We like having more time to travel, since we sold our small business.

We've enjoyed being Airbnb guests in Victoria and Vancouver, BC and also in St. John's, NL, and in 2015, we decided to take on the hosting role.

We built the cottage, to test-drive country living in all four seasons. Happy with our experiment, we built our main house next door, and the cottage became our guest cottage.

Over the years, we've had many friends and family members say they've enjoyed being there, during both short and long-term stays - in all four seasons. It's been fun having fellow Airbnb-ers enjoy it, too. We've really enjoyed hearing their various stories, receiving the kind reviews, and in the process becoming a SuperHost.
