3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Port Joli, Southwest Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia
The Frances Louis House was designed and built in the early 1970s by a Nova Scotia architect, Keith Graham.

Architecturally interesting cottage in a secluded area of the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Very comfortable and well-equipped, with a very nice sandy beach. We have rented here on 5 occasions, and will do so again!
