Nova Scotia Dream Vacation
Kelly's Retreat

at Livingstone Cove...

"Majestic" is the word most often heard from newcomers to Kelly's Retreat. This beach cottage was completed in 2007 and sits on a rugged hillside facing west, ready and waiting for you to enjoy tonight's enchanting sunset over the Northumberland Strait.



The House
This home is of post and beam construction using 100% Nova Scotia native timbers. Plentiful and large windows allow for multiple and majestic views from virtually every room. Enjoy the sight of Prince Edward Island and Pictou Island from the 500 sq ft glass railed deck. See the local lobstermen from nearby Livingstone Cove set their traps and haul their delicious treasure during lobster season. Then, most summers the whales start to play just offshore while cruise ships, fishing boats and yachts of all sizes pass quietly by in the distance.


The Main Floor
The Main floor features the livingroom with leather furniture, a soap stone wood stove and a flat screen HD TV, diningroom, breakfast bar, two private bedrooms and a bath, all surrounding the modern and fully equiped oak kitchen. The second bedroom offers a queensize SelectComfort mattress,you pick your sleep number, and a perfect view of the lobster boats at Livingstone Cove. The third bedroom is tucked in the southeast corner of the house and has two twin beds arranged in trundle fashion.


The Second Floor
The entire second floor is the master suite featuring a large bedroom, with a 180 degree water view from your queen size bed, huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a double loft looking down on the livingroom and multiple ocean views. The loft can easily double as a sleeping area for your seventh and eighth guests.


The Surrounding Nature
Bald eagles, hawks and deer are seen on the property most days and if you are a lover of hummingbirds, our feeder is busy from sun up to sundown.

From this home you can hike the extensive Cape George Trail System, ride bikes on quiet country roads, kayak, canoe OR just sit and read, walk on the beach, sleep or just stay in bed and watch mother nature's daily theater play out over the ocean.

If you choose to come and enjoy this home, you will leave with a renewed sense of calm and integration into this beautiful natural world all around us.
