Maison Du Cap - Oceanside House - Cape Ste. Mary, NS

Beachfront Holiday home with patio and fireplace
Lovely 5 bedroom, renovated fisherman's home nestled at the tip of Cape St Mary and surrounded by the Bay of Fundy and St Mary's Bay. The house is warm, light, full of windows, charmingly furnished and has all amenities. The five bedrooms look out on a panoramic view of the rugged Evangeline Coast, a small boat-building shop, fishing boats, a lobster wharf and a nearby lighthouse on top of beautiful cliffs. Mavillette Beach is less than a hundred meters away and has a mile of unspoiled sand beach and dunes. It is considered the finest beach on the Western side of Nova Scotia. The tide is dramatic with the sea rising and falling 10 meters (30 feet) every 6 hours and docks are hinged so the fishing boats can rise and fall with the tide. You may see some whale, seals and bald eagles and the birding is excellent. Fish for mackerel and whitefish off the adjacent wharf and breakwater. Wild strawberries in late June, blueberries in August, cranberries in the Fall.. Almost no bugs because of the ocean breezes. Swimming: ocean temperatures are like those in Maine but at low tide,the tidal pools and mouth of the river form warm 'kiddie pools'. Fresh water lakes abound, and St Anne's college has a heated pool. Ocean kayaking and wind-surfing require skill. We have land on a wooded fresh water lake two miles inland where you can kayak, fish, make a campfire, and swim. There are beaver, porcupine, and several species of carnivorous plants by the lake. There is a beautiful 4 mile cliff walk along the Western side of the Cape. You can watch both sunrise and sunset from our house and from the lighthouse. Tennis courts and golf are 20-30 minutes away. There's a ping pong table in the garage, loads of board games and puzzles and a net for volleyball and badminton.
Tennis courts and a golf course are about 20-30 minutes away. Meteghan has a large fishing fleet, fresh fish and lobsters, a supermarket, a farmers market, and a hardware store. Behind Meteghan River is a working saw mill that is started up once a week. Yarmouth has a couple of fine restaurants and a mall, movies and an old historic downtown. The Worlds Smallest Drawbridge is found in Sandford outside of Yarmouth. Whale and puffin watching boats go out from the town of Digby, the Scallop Capitol of the World and again, there are some very fine restaurants here. Historic Annapolis Royale, the wild Kejimkujik National Park and the Annapolis Valley are all about an hour beyond Digby.
Two grocery stores, a fishmarket, a farmer's market, a restaurant with weekly Acadian music, and 2 diners are all within 1 to 5 miles of the house. Yarmouth is 25 minutes away and has a large American style mall plus some fine wharf-side dining and brewery. Summer festivals include the Shark Scramble and several Acadian festivals. The world's smallest drawbridge is near Yarmouth and a water powered sawmill is operational one day a week, beyond Meteghan River. Tennis and Golf are a half hour away and the College at St Anne has a heated pool. Whale watching boats leave from Digby which is called the "Scallop Capital" of the world.

3/5 Okay

Beautiful vista.
Beautiful view of the sea. The beach is perfect for long walks.

4/5 Good

Gorgeous fairly remote location spacious home and great deck! Home could use some TLC.
The property was remote but at the same time we did have neighbors and were right next to a little fishing marina and lighthouse. Our dog loved running on the ocean floor when the tide was out. Our kids loved having the campfire and lots of space. We had a peaceful and relaxing week. Bring filtered water and charcoal for the bbq.

5/5 Excellent

So beautiful, I'm thinking about living around this place one day!
I have been to Nova Scotia 4 times now in my life. Mavillette Beach area is my favorite place, I even want to live there soon. That said, my experience in this house was plain and simply awesome. The house is cute and clean, one kid room, 3 other big room with double bed, and a master bedroom with a king size bed and a spectacular view! Huge deck in the back with view of Mavillette beach, a place to make a fire in the backyard, high speed internet, etc... I give this place a 5 stars! What a great place to spend your vacations!
