A well-equipped cottage

4 of 5
Well situated close to whale-watching businesses and ferries to Brier Island, we stayed here for four days. In spite of rather wet weather, we were very comfortable, and Gardener's Cottage is very well equipped for self catering - decent restaurants are a little way away. Diane, who looks after the cottage for the owner, is a great pie maker and did us proud!

A Thanksgiving weekend to remember

5 of 5
What an amazing thanksgiving weekend we had at this beautiful home in East Ferry. The weather was wonderful - crisp and sunny, sun sparkling on the churning ocean waters below us. We had a great trip on Sunday exploring on Brier Island. The kitchen was fabulous…and we used it well….lots of great wining and dining. We went through a fair amount of firewood as the fireplace was always blazing away keeping us cozy. The house was the perfect configuration for our extended family. The kids went crazy when they saw their room (over the garage with the two beds). My daughter (age 5) asked if we could move there and all live together. Probably the most special part of the weekend was making the short walk from the house to see the seal colony. We found them, on Monday morning, bathing in the sun on their rocks….counted somewhere near 50 and they were singing away in haunting howling voices. My 3 year old son said they sounded like sea ghosts….and that was exactly right. We sat on the point in the sun and watched them for a long time. One of those “memorize this moment” kind of mornings. So….from our whole clan, a tremendous thank-you. It was one of the best thanksgiving weekends we have ever had and we’ll remember it always. (My pictures of the weekend are stunning….I should send you a few!) We hope to be back!
