Ocean Front get Away With Private Beach and Custom Built Timber Frame

Beachfront holiday home for sun and fun
The home is a custom built, one of a kind timber frame house located on 14 acres with your own private beach. The house was built by retired father and son (owner), making this a true labour of love. This was a 6 year endeavor/hobby for the two, starting from the raw log and sawing all timbers and materials on site. This includes all traditional joinery connected using wooden pegs, along with many other custom features. The home was completed in 2010 and has breathtaking views of Merigomish harbour which opens into the Northumberland Strait. The shallow entry waters make for safe and enjoyable swimming for all ages. During low tide, kids can run and have hours of fun exploring the sand bars and finding treasures. This house is perfect for enjoying morning coffees or evening cocktails on the deck overlooking the stunning ocean, taking long walks on your beach, watching your kids run on the picturesque sand bars or enjoying a BBQ with friends while watching the sun set low over the Merigomish Harbour. You won't regret spending a week away from it all in this beach front oasis.
This property has its own private sandy beach. You can enjoy the stunning views from the deck or go for a leisurely walk on your secluded beach and watch the sun go down over the ocean. The house is centrally located on a 100 acres family owned property.

It is located minutes away from Melmerby beach Provincial Park which is located on the Northumberland Shore. The Northumberland is known for it's warm waters, averaging more than 22 degrees Celsius (72F) in the summer, Melmerby is a popular 2-km (1.25-mi) beach with boardwalks.

It is centrally located and only 20 minutes to New Glasgow and all necessary amenities. There is also a variety store located 5 minutes away, which will accommodate all your basic needs, including a adult beverages. :) .

5/5 Excellent

Cherished family memories made!
We were so lucky to find such a fantastic property! We were isolating due to Covid-19 for two weeks before two of our children could attend Dalhousie. Kirk’s house and property allowed seven of us to have the best family holiday! The house was incredibly beautiful and spacious, the property stunning. And Kirk such a gracious, helpful host.

5/5 Excellent

Private Paradise
I strongly recommend that you stay here - it’s a little piece of heaven. The property is beautiful - pictures can’t begin to capture the view. Our kids were at the beach from dawn to dusk. The house is immaculate with high end appliances and the host is available immediately for questions if you have any. This is definitely not just a summer location - the fall would be beautiful as well! We will definitely book again!

5/5 Excellent

The perfect location for "getting away from it all."
The house was lovely in detail and amenities; the view and access to the water was great; and the property manager was caring and attentive without being intrusive.

5/5 Excellent

Everything that could have been thought of ,and available was. Beautiful home, well stocked kitchen , ample linens and towels ... all in the most beautiful and peaceful setting. From fireflies dancing at night, to young deer foraging on the front lawn in the morning . From your morning coffees to your evening cocktails, the views from every well appointed verandah was a sight too see.
