3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
Riverport, Southwest Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia
Located in Kingsburg, Nova Scotia, this 140 year old home on the hill is located in the centre of an 18th century Swiss German settlement and is surrounded by +/- 200 year old classic Cape Cod style houses. It is 400 feet down the hill to a beautiful, half-mile long beach, on which you rarely see more than half a dozen people, even in the middle of the summer. It is a 4 minute drive to Hirtle’s Beach, one of Canada’s top ranked summer beaches. The town of Lunenburg, a World Heritage designated site, is a 20 minute drive away and features many great restaurants and shops.

Directions:
Exit 10 or 11 off Hwy. 103 to Lunenburg. Right on 332 to Rose Bay. Left 5 km to Kingsburg. At Schoolhouse turn left up Mosher Road to #85 on the right at the top of the hill.

We're used to descriptions of "sleeps 8" being misleading, but this house had 3 large bedrooms and an additional sitting room with a pull out sofa. The photos are very honest, and taken from angles that probably make the property appear smaller.

These windows were mainly quite small, which seems to miss an opportunity to really capitalize on the views, but that's part of the charm of older buildings.

The location is ideal, being minutes away (walking) from Kingsburg Beach and roughly a 20 minute walk to Hirtles Beach, and...
