The nicest natural, rugged oceanfront property in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia. The sunsets alone are worth the visit.
The wild setting, just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean.

We were contacted by the landlord to switch from Whaleback since he needed to work on it. The house we stayed in was on the edge of a beautiful cove. Tom was very helpful with advice and fixing the door of the washer. A fierce storm hit on their Thanksgiving-we lost power but stayed warm and dry. Nice "atmospheric", historical house with open kitchen, many bathrooms, and comfortable beds.
We embraced and enjoyed every sunrise, sunset, and dolphins playing out front of the cottage.
The locals were warm and inviting, and the atmosphere here is one of a kind.
We had a great three nights at this delightful property. Everything we needed was available, except a washing machine. The scenery is stunning. Do take time to visit drop down the many side roads to avoid the crowds of Peggy's Cove. Prospect is so silent. Ryer 's is a must for lobster.
What a great & unique spot. We had whales swimming around the house and deer coming by for a visit. You can see the Peggy's Cove lighthouse from the master and living room also. If you enjoy a truly maritime ocean experience you'll find it here. Make sure to stop by at the art gallery of Tom's sweet wife, there are some marvellous artworks to look at and friendly locals to meet.
This charmer has it all. Waking up to the view this place offers can not get any better on the south shore. It's like you have Nova Scotia all to yourself!! The owner is close and can offer any info you need. Peggy's Cove is right around the corner and the freshly cook lobster we got at Ryer's was incredible. We gathered around the Whaleback Cottages big. inviting. dinning room table, feasted, laughed and then feed the leftover shells to the seabirds on the rocks near the water. Amazing stay...loved every minute.
Whalesback Cottage is the ideal spot for serenity and complete relaxation. We enjoyed the house for 10 days from late August - early September 2016. The views of the ocean, the waves, and the rocky coast is exactly what I envisioned Nova Scotia to be. Tom and Donna are excellent hosts and leave you wanting nothing. The house is very well equipped for cooking at home, or just relaxing and enjoying the view. The weather was great, and we really enjoyed walking on the rocks. The sunsets at Peggy's Cove are fantastic. Nova Scotia is a photographers dream. Everyone you meet is extremely friendly, and the local restaurants are wonderful. We really enjoyed Rhubarb's and the Finer Diner.
