Parkers Cove - Periwinkle Cottage with bay views outdoor shower and dog friendly

Located in: Parkers Cove
We do our best to provide a truly Maritime experience beginning with a quaint century-old Nova Scotian cottage which was moved to this location eighty-five years ago and settled with it’s back to the forested mountainside and it’s front with windows to the water. It sits quietly apart, without neighbours on either side or behind. The original ‘outhouse’ now holds garden tools and a new garage which compliments the cottage was added a few years ago. A grassy drive goes right up to the cottage but feel free to park or turn on the front law.

Totally renovated, the cottage retains the simple pleasures of clean delicious water from the spring-fed well, the snug warmth of a wood-burning stove and the cooling freshness of an open-window breeze. Other than a radio and cd player, the cottage is without modern technological distractions. To date, most guests have surprisingly enjoyed being incommunicado and relaxed into their ‘unplugged’ state, blithely stress-free and happily tuned into the ‘now’ of being here in this magical place. A home phone is available for making reservations or emergencies.
A new spacious back deck and refreshing outdoor shower and firepit were added to the cottage amenities this spring.

We gladly provide information and recommendations for the usual (restaurants, whale watching or hiking) as well as the unusual (where to get homemade ice cream, attend a lunch and learn, how to cook a lobster or find a dog sitter)

The cottage has been described by guests as a ‘restful nest’ and a ‘homely haven’, ‘unpretentious yet attractive’, ‘pleasantly simple and functional’, ‘immaculately clean and totally equipped’.

The first floor: Great for seniors!
An eat-in kitchen which features the original cottage cupboards, full size refrigerator, an electric stove, a microwave, toaster, blender, mini-grill, coffee maker and an electric kettle. Dishes, glassware, silverware, cooking utensils, tea towels, pots and pans and of course, everything needed to cook, crack and eat lobster. Coffee, tea, sugar, salt & pepper, some spices are stocked in the cupboards.

A bedroom with white wooden walls and a nautical blue floor with a comfortable double bed. The window faces the calm green woods and a scent of mint wafts in from the garden.

A full bathroom has a high-profile toilet as well as a shower with great water pressure from our spring-fed well. We provide lots of towels, a hair dryer, hand soap and shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Also there is a washer and dryer for your use with liquid detergent and dryer sheets under the sink.

In the relaxing room, sink into the couch and enjoy the view of boats bobbing in the Bay or seals popping up. Put your feet up and feel at home. Board games and cards on hand for some good old fashion entertainment. Strike up the compliant wood stove and gaze into the embers as the sun finally says goodnight. You will be warm and toasty in the winter months however an additional heater is in the lower level bathroom as well as baseboard heating in the upstairs bedroom for your comfort.

A storage room off the kitchen is where you will find a cd player, fans, chairs and BBQ utensils. Open the back door to find the Weber Gas BBQ and the herb garden. A screen door allows for cross breezes.

We ask those hoping to bring their dog to please include that information in reservation request. We ask that all dogs be up to date on all needles and flea and tick medication. Owners to take care of their dogs waste.

The second floor: This space seems to be everyone’s favourite!
A bedroom with whitewashed wooden walls and a finished wooden floor makes up the entire space. There is a fantastic new queen bed with a stunning view to the Bay, a small closet and a dresser for storage. Windows on all sides make for great cross breezes and shelves of books invite the reader.

A half bath is tucked under the eaves, complete with towels and a hair dryer.

Just out the front door, the cottage porch beckons. Take a seat in the Shore Road bench built from ‘shore finds’ by my neighbour. It’s a friendly community where motorists wave and walkers will stop and chat. Guests have enjoyed coffee, wine, even meals here. Others have used the porch to meditate, do yoga, write and paint. Gates at both ends of the porch keep dogs secure.

A hammock is snuggled into the trees ready for you to snooze away listening to the stream

Shore access to the Bay is available at the public access down the street. The Bay of Fundy is one of Frommer’s top global destinations with it’s tremendous tides being referred to as the heartbeat of the world. In Parker’s Cove, the tide ranges from 30 feet from low to high but during storms or full moons, 50 feet is possible.

Behind the cottage, walk the trails behind the cottage by following the red arrows which mark the path that runs along the brook to the ‘bench of contemplation’. Even on a hot summer day, you can rest in the quiet coolness by the forest stream.

In the area:
Nova Scotia is a Lonely Planet top pick and the nearby town of Annapolis Royal has won the title of Cultureville of the Maritimes. There are wonderful restaurants in the area and an incredible farmers market on Saturday where you can buy fish and scallops from the Fish Monger, French and German breads, pastries, jams, fresh veg as well as Maritime art and crafts. Live music, artisan demonstrations and impromptu dancing will all add to your experience.

In the cottage, you will find everything you need to cook and crack a succulent lobster in the kitchen or you can leave the lobster cooking to Nautical Seafoods, minutes away at the Parker’s Cove wharf. They offer fresh or cooked to order lobster as well as freshly prepared lunches. You can also purchase world famous Digby scallops - delicious! A few minutes past the wharf in Hillsburn, you will the Crow's Nest Dining, a favourite with locals and has a little convenience store at the back for necessities.

Periwinkle Cottage will be closed for the season Nov 5-March 31***** however all requests for stay will be answered promptlly

So we would love to share our little piece of heaven with you, when are you coming?
