Clinton was great at communicating with us as we planned our trip, and though I had not been familiar with the eastern shore, I discovered that it is truly beautiful area and has a lot to offer. The Doers and Dreamers guide listed some great sounding hikes that I want to do on another visit. One Nova Scotian described the eastern shore as the 'real, old Nova Scotia'.
The house is rustic and cottage-like, and maintains the character of the 165 year old home, with some great, tastefully done updates. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was a joy to work in. I loved the couch in the kitchen where I could put my feet up and look out over the water.
I was a little disappointed that the road in front of the house was fairly well-traveled, and that the shoreline, which is on the opposite side of the road, is not an easily accessible or inviting place to sit with your coffee. However, the nearby beaches were astounding, and there were many adventures one could embark on. (Our time was limited so we could not venture out too far on this trip.)
We had what we needed, were comfortable, and enjoyed our stay very much.
