A very cozy and peaceful place to base any vacation on the South Shore out of. Very close to hiking and ATV trails. No visible neighbors from the yard, lots of wildlife. Large parking areas. Interior is a mixture of new and re purposed materials. Appliances are small but functional, all the comforts of home but smaller. Double bed is incredibly comfortable. The building is compact but well laid out for function. It's my favorite place to be.
“If you are looking for a peaceful retreat this is your place! Michelle's little cottage is private and quiet. We had our dogs there and they had lots of space to run and play. Her location its perfectly located to chester and mahone bay for little day trips. We were there in the spring but I can imagine it would be a perfect spot for a summer trip!”
Moss Cottage can be your getaway only 45 minutes from Halifax and a few kilometers from the village of Chester on Nova Scotia's beautiful south shore. It's your choice to take in the many local sights, shop in towns and villages that dot the coastline, sail, play golf or stretch out on any number of beaches -- all within easy driving. Or, perhaps you'd prefer to stay put at Moss Cottage for a lovely chance at solitude and a dip in our crystal clear lake.
“What a beautiful place Moss Cottage was! From the moment we walked down the stone stairway to the front door my fiance and I were entranced by the magic this place holds. There was always something to do here, and whether we were playing board games or watching a large selection of DVDs next to a cozy wood stove we always felt like we were in our home away from home. The spectacular lake view never disappointed and was a dream to wake up to every morning, and with the fall leaves floating on the lake and peppering the lawn the view was like a painting I couldn't take my eyes off of. We even got out on the boat a couple times and the lake looked just as amazing from the boats perspective. I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of things but all in all the hospitality and small touches that Cindy and Moss Cottage provide make this place feel like your own. I would absolutely recommend this place to my family and friends and I will absolutely be back again. Thank you infinitely, Justin”

“The tiny house was adorable! Alex had quick responses and great suggestions for things to do in the area. We went to Hirtle’s Beach and hiked the Gaff Point Trail, had a campfire each night, and made dinner on the bbq. Grocery stores were close by so if we forgot any ingredients we were able to go pick up whatever we needed. I would recommend bringing vegetable oil or butter if you’re planning on using the camp stove with a pan. It was overall a great weekend getaway and we would definitely go back!”
