Hidden Harbour is a delightful restored Cape Cod, which was built over 100 years ago. The owner, a master carpenter, also owns Hideaway Haven next door and the two vacation rental properties enjoy the view of the calm and sheltered waters of Modesty Cove. Like Hideaway Haven, this house has been lovingly restored but still maintains its old charm, while having all of today’s modern conveniences. Rustic hardwood floors, exposed wooden beams and restored antique furniture give this cottage a very homey feeling. Outside, the large lawn and deck allow space for reflecting, reading, or cooking on the propane barbeque.
The house sits on a large property facing the cove. The waterfront, though not sandy, is great for swimming and the water is clean and clear. Modesty Cove is an active fishing cove, so you will see colorful fishing huts, boats and plenty of wildlife. The sheltered cove opens up to the deep waters of St. Margaret's Bay, known for its world-class sailing and beautiful beaches.
Outdoor enthusiasts will be enchanted with this property as well as the location. Be sure to bring your kayak, or take a tour with one of the local outdoor adventure outfits, as this area has so much rugged coastline, beautiful islands and amazing sea life to be enjoyed. It is not uncommon to see dolphins, whales and even sunfish - to name a few.
The main floor of the house is open plan, with the living room, kitchen and dining area all enjoying views down to the water. There is a lovely bedroom on this level, with a queen sized bed, as well as a 3-piece bathroom. The bathroom, with tiled shower and restored clawfoot tub, also has a washer and dryer.
The handmade kitchen, with solid wood countertops, is fully equipped with everything you'll need and the dining table seats six. Upstairs are two more bedrooms; one with a queen sized bed and the other has a double bed.
Hidden Harbour is located in Indian Harbour, just minutes from the famous fishing village and lighthouse of Peggy's Cove. It is a 45 minute drive to Halifax. Tantallon, (20 minutes drive) has all the amenities you will need (grocery stores, liquor store, public library, gas stations, movie rentals, etc.)
