About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9

Welcome to Mill Lake Getaway! If the water is what you like, this is the place for you! Take a swim or try out our canoe! The kids will love the waterslide off the dock!

Our Cottage is more like a home than a cottage! It has 3 full bathrooms and 4 bedrooms and sleeps 9! There is even a Jacuzzi tub in the master en-suite!

The kitchen is open concept and has all the utensils and appliances you are use to in your own home. All linens and bedding are provided and there are lake towels available for you to use as well!

The deck is massive, but I personally love the the 25'x8' dock by the water! It's my favorite spot to have my morning coffee or watch the kids swim in the afternoon!

Our vacation home has everything you need to enjoy your holiday away. The kitchen is fully stocked with all your utensils and appliances you are use to in our own kitchen.

There are 2 dishwashers in the kitchen for added convenience when hosting a larger group! Downstairs you will find another living room, full bathroom, 2 bedrooms and laundry room!

You will LOVE the fire pit area just inches away from the water. You can sit by the fire and watch the fish jumping in the lake! All you need to bring is the wood!

About Rebecca Bezanson

I have been renting vacation rentals since 2010. I love having people enjoy our cottages as much as we do! I am a real estate agent so I love houses in general but waterfront have always been my favorite!

Rebecca Bezanson purchased this house in 2009

Why Rebecca Bezanson chose Upper Musquodoboit

We fell in love with the lot for this cottage. We love having people over and you will quickly discover you will not run out of space here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you so much for a great 3 days. What a beautiful place you have. I did not want to leave and I will want to rent it again. I was just blown away. There wasn't one thing I was disappointed about. I've stayed in many cottages and your lake house is on a whole different level, Everything was amazing! Thanks again for renting it to me. Take care

An amazing spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and had a wonderful time making memories with our family. The cottage has lots of room and is well set up . The deck and fire pit area are very nice. The lake is very quiet and provided lots of fun for swimming and kayaking. Would definitely consider going again sometime in the future. Thank you for your sharing your piece of heaven.

Lovely cottage on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very large with a beautiful view of the lake. It is equipped with everything you need to feel like home. It has a large deck with a BBQ and furniture. There's a cozy family room downstairs that exits to a covered patio where you can sit out if it's raining and still enjoy the view of the lake. The open concept kitchen/living room is perfect for family gatherings. We didn't want to leave!

Amazing Cottage - as always

  • 4 of 5

We've been to this cottage many times over the last few years and the place is extremely beautiful, very luxuriously appointed and truly exceptional.

But this time I noticed the response rates go down, supplies not be there (soap/salt/dish liquid), the swing being broken, lots of cobwebs etc.

It doens't matter though, it's still one of the best cottages to go to in Nova Scotia - be it for a big family gathering, or to chill out with friends. The lake is right there and so are the 2 cozy living rooms - to hang outside or indoors.

Would 100% reccomend to everyone.

Beautiful lake views

  • 4 of 5

My family spent a very enjoyable week together at this lake house celebrating my parents 60th anniversary. The views are so beautiful, I wish I could post some photos! We relaxed on the large deck, had cozy fires by the lake and explored the lake in the canoe. They had everything that we needed to be able to cook all of our meals and entertain ourselves. We hope to return next year.
