Heart's Content Cottage-Waterfront Property on the Famous Mira River

Waterfront Holiday home with patio and fireplace
Update: Hearts Content is located on private land in a rural setting. We employ a full time experienced cleaner, she spend 6 hours on a deep clean between every booking along with 2-4 hours of laundry off site. To ensure safety for our guests and our cleaner we will be blocking out an extra day on either end of all new bookings. This will limit our new bookings but will help fight the spread of Covid-19 and protect our guests, ourselves and our cleaner.

Welcome to Hearts Content Cottage. Located directly on the beautiful and famous Mira River. Enjoy swimming off the private dock and swim platform. Explore the river in the kayaks, (life jackets included with rental) during the day, or just relax on the private dock. When the sun goes down, sit around the custom fire pit, or in the screened in room telling stories with family and friends.

The Mira River offers a tremendous opportunity for the fisherman in us all. Brown Trout, Speckle Trout, Striped Bass and Perch all flow through the river. If you are looking for more than fishing, the Mira River offers a fantastic canoeing and kayaking experience. The river's width and calm waters make it ideal for boating and other fun water activities.

Heart's Content Cottage is the perfect getaway for family and friends looking for quality time in a beautiful setting.

Hearts content cottage
Very nice little cottage with all the amenities needed , the Mira river is beautiful, would definitely stay again

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful Relaxation
We loved our stay at Marion Bridge! The cottage was cozy and comfortable, with a fantastic enclosed porch. Kendra was super helpful in providing us with info requested ( ie. closest grocery store 25 min & convenience store 10 min), as the cottage is in a fairly rural area. We enjoyed a cozy fire at night, and appreciated the plentiful dry firewood provided. We were able to take advantage of the kayaks and pedal boat which we loved. We also enjoyed visiting the Louisbourg Fortress and Cabot Trail. Highly recommend!

Relaxing vacation by the Mira River
We are a family of five and we had a wonderful time at Heart's Content Cottage. The setting is beautiful, the Mira River is peaceful and the kids enjoyed the kayaks and pedal-boat. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The owner were very helpful and provided information for bike trails and things to do near the cottage.

5/5 Excellent

Get away from it all in this comfy cottage on the Mira River. Easy check-in. Responsive hosts.
This property was very comfortable. Has all essentials including just about everything you’d need in the kitchen. Also a canoe, several kayaks, pedal boat, fire pit with wood, fishing equipment, screened porch, and nice dock with Adirondack chairs. The bedrooms are smallish but very comfortable and warm. They have games, books, fireplace, and laundry with supplies. We loved that it also includes National Park Passes. Lots of lupine on the property and wild blueberriesjust down the lane. Host answered my phone call immediately. Very easy check-in. There’s tons of seating on the screened porch, dining tables inside and out plus sofa bed and recliners in the living room. WiFi isn’t really strong but works. It’s very quiet and relaxing. There’s a slight sulfur smell to the water but a large water cooler is provided. Great getaway. I’d definitely visit again.
