Rocky Shores & Seals Cottages
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The cottage has everything you could need and more! All you need is food and clothes. The shore is only steps away with a spectacular view of the sunset. We had our seven week old son with us and found it was easy to relax while caring for him. We will be back again!

There were three couples and our two year-old daughter in our party, and we spent two nights in the Otter cabin recently. The cabin was fully stocked with every possible necessity, and it was very clean and modern. The cabins are just a short drive over the North Mountain from Middleton, so you're only a few minutes away from a grocery store, NSLC and restaurants.

Just down the road from the cabins is a provincial picnic park, with good access to the rocky beach.

Booking our stay was easy and we all enjoyed our stay! We will be returning for sure.

Our recent vacation experience in the Maritimes was at the well arranged cabin in Port George. The cabin had everything that we needed except for the groceries, that were available about 15 minutes away in Middleton. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well equipped with the necessary appliances, and the Muskoka chairs were waiting for us on the porch to sit to watch the sunset over the water. Beautiful! Nearby was a picnic area with shade from the evergreens, and space to park cars to watch the Fundy tides rise and fall, another excellent plus. We travelled daily to points of interest in the Annapolis Valley, the main highway being not too far from the cabin. Our several day stay at the cabin was great!!

We really enjoyed exploring Nova Scotia from this centrally located cabin....as this was the middle of our 6 week trip, we had hoped that there would be laundry facilities available...even a clothes line would have been helpful. We were in the smaller of the two bedrooms in cabin #2...and I do mean "smaller". The wifi didn't work from our cabin, but a simple phone call to Karen solved that problem by allowing us into cabin #1 where the modem was located.. We'd love to come back and stay in cabin #1, as they've added on a second bedroom....but, Calgary is a long way away! The cabin was very well equipped and our towels were replaced mid week....definitely a great place to stay.

HI, Marian & Walt. Thanks so much for the review and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. You'll be happy to know that Bell Aliant came out yesterday to investigate the Wi-fi problems and determined there was a problem in the physical line at the pole. The truck was out today to fix it. I am here and testing it regularly from your cottage and it seems to be working so far.

I am here now getting the second bedroom set up and ready for Tourism NS to inspect - they are coming tomorrow so it will be ready to go this weekend.

Thank you also for the comment about the laundry. We do have a washer and dryer on site for the cleaners, and are thinking of opening that up for guests who are here a week or more. We're also looking at what type of clothes line we can erect.

Many thanks again for your comments and suggestions, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation!

Warm regards,

Karen and Jim

We stayed in the smaller of the two cabins for three nights to enable us to explore the Annapolis Valley and this part of the Fundy coast. It was cool and windy while we were there and we felt very comfortable in the cablin. The kitchen is very well equipped and there was abundant cleaning materials, toiletries and bedding etc. Although it sleeps two easily, four people may be a squeeze using the fold out bed in the lounge area. The place is not directly on the water but up the hill with a good view of the bay, and a glorious sunset for us. When we were there the owner was not living nearby but she was contactable and could arrange assistance locally. There are a number of places to explore nearby and it is an ideal place to see the valley and coas, all within easy driving. Joshua Slocum was born up the road, a fact that excited one of us.

Room Tip: The other cabin is larger and sleeps 6, but for two of us our cabin was ideal.

Thank you very much for the great review and for taking the time to write. We have good news - we are currently adding a second bedroom to the cottage you stayed in so it will sleep two more people comfortably. Now both cottages have two bedrooms.

Warm regards,
