Waterfront serene historic home - Puffin's Cove
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

We were the first guests in Puffin's Cove, and we can only say: It was a perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have given attention to every single detail to make this a wonderful home from home. The kitchen is perfectly equipped for home cooking, everything is brand new. The bathroom has a large shower and soft towels and a lovely Martime color scheme. The living room with a nice mixture of antiques and new furniture, holds DVDs and games and a comfortable sofa for a rainy day. The bed is super comfy. And of course there is the large terrace for dining or simply enjoying the sunset.

From the apartment you can easily reach one of the best beaches on the South Shore, Hirtle Beach, go for the breathtaking hike around Gaffe Point, take a tour to the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg or along the LaHave river.

We have had a wonderful and very relaxing time and hope to come back, soon.
