“Bright and spacious with great views”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the entire house was very clean. It has tremendous views especially from the balconies and upstairs. Our son loved the table tennis table in the basement. Beds were comfy and for long stays the washer and dryer are a bonus. The location is convenient for trips to Bridgewater, Mahone Bay and Lunenberg. Crescent Beach is a five minute drive and Rissers is only ten minutes away. There are three bedrooms upstairs and a den with a pullout on the main floor that could function as a fourth. Overall we were very happy but would suggest a few improvements: two of the upstairs bedrooms do not have window covers on all the windows (or glass door). This is not a privacy issue as there are no neighbours but it is a problem with the light early in the morning. The chairs in the main room, which is the nicest area to sit with fantastic windows, are not very comfortable. Outdoor furniture for the patio is very basic. Other than these minor issues, it is a great place.

We're glad that our guests enjoyed our location, our views, the cleanliness of the house, it being well-equipped, the comfortable beds, the ping pong table and the use of the washer dryer.

We promptly contacted them after they posted this review, and they clarified as follows: "As for the furniture in the atrium, there wasn’t one particular piece that was uncomfortable but we didn’t find any of the chairs great for lounging for a couple of hours." We don't dispute our guests' experience. But In four years of renting to dozens of guests, this is the first time our chairs have been brought up as a concern. We also have a den with a satellite flat-screen TV that has two very comfortable chairs which recline and a comfortable couch to sit or lay out on.

We'd like to point out that the master bedroom does have blinds on all windows and in the two upstairs bedrooms two windows and one door indeed do not come with blinds. We are in the process of putting some up. In the meantime we ask guests to bring sleep masks, if they have them.

Each of our two decks has four upright plastic chairs to sit on and the main deck also has two classic wooden Adirondack chairs that are super-comfortable to lounge in. The main deck also has a table for eating which can sit four people.

“Peaceful Cottage with a Spectacular View”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I stayed here for a week in October and it was unbelievable. Such a beautiful cottage with the most awesome views from every window. The whole place has a peaceful, relaxing, elegant feel, you won't be disappointed. Huge kitchen great for cooking, woodstove to snuggle around at night, viewing decks to enjoy the outdoors, and even a ping pong table for a little fun competition. Highly recommend. . . can't wait to stay here again.

One point of note to NON-Canadian travelers...

This guest refers to our home as a "cottage," which is the term most Canadians give to vacation rentals. To U.S. travelers and to others outside Canada, the word "cottage" typically implies a small, modest house, usually of only one story.

SkyView is actually a VERY BIG, modern house, which sleeps up to 8 people. It is 2 stories with quite high ceilings and 2200 square feet of living space, not including the basement with the ping pong table.

Just want you to know what to expect!
