About Scott Wilson
I have lived in Nova Scotia all of my life and I am very proud to call Halifax my home. I love being close to the water whether it is on the lake or the ocean. Nova Scotia has so many beautiful landscapes to enjoy. I enjoy traveling and have used VRBO for many of our accommodations arrangements.
Scott Wilson purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Scott Wilson chose Halifax
This is a city cottage nestled on Springfield Lake. Enjoy the closeness to the waters edge, swimming, paddle boarding, canoe, the wildlife and the incredible sunsets. The cottage is fully equiped with everything you will need and is located in the city limits but has a very relaxed and private retreat like feel. When I first found Loons Nest, I had an opportunity to stay for 5 nights. I simply could not believe how peaceful and relaxing this place is and so close to downtown Halifax. It is thoroughly enjoyed by our family. We offer this to you.
What makes this Cottage unique
Halifax waterfront is only 20 minutes away. Great for business travelers who want to truly relax too or tourists that just want to be near the city. Golf courses are close by and metro transit buses if you want to avoid downtown parking issues. Air Conditioned, Fire place, full kitchen, gas barbeque for those who enjoy cooking for themselves or a loved one.

Loved our stay
We loved our stay at this little house on the lake - peaceful and relaxing and easy access to highway made our stay in Nova Scotia quite easy. Scott Wilson was most helpful and responded quickly to any and all questions from the time we thought about booking and until we arrived, and while we were there. We would definitely considering staying at this pretty property again.
Perfect lake getaway not far from the city !
From the second you walk into this amazing little cottage you realize it’s special. It is well cared for everything is in great shape and the ‘backyard’ is a dream. The lake view from the cottage and the backyard is perfect and the long private dock feels secluded and special. Nothing has been overlooked- the toys ( paddle board, canoe, fireplace, grill) the numerous quiet places to sit, two outdoor dining places. We had such a wonderful time spent between all the touristy places in Halifax and beyond and then to return home to this bliss was awesome. Scott was always available to help with anything! Perfect size for a our family of 3! Highly recommend this cottage getaway.
Heaven on Earth!!!
I stayed recently with my 2 daughters and it was perfect!. Cottage is everything we wanted. Clean, private, spacious, well stocked and adorable. Lake was ideal for swimming, fishing, canoeing and sunsets. Location to Halifax and surrounding area allows you to head out for the day or evening, if you can pull yourself away from the lake. Scott is an outstanding host! We definitely will be back. Thank you Scott for sharing your piece of paradise!
My family had an excellent time at the Loon's Nest!
The Loon's Nest cottage was a beautiful escape for my family. We enjoyed the sights and sounds of Halifax by day, and we rested by the lake by night. I highly recommend this cottage for families looking to have a Nova Scotia experience.
The owner, Scott, was great! He was very responsive to our needs.
An amazing cottage, in a great location
We could not have found a better place to stay when visiting Nova Scotia. The cottage and lake had everything we were looking for and was a perfect place to relax and unwind. Canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing and just sitting on the deck, we took full advantage of all the amenities. Tons of space for the family. The cottage had a great central location. 30 minutes to Halifax, 40 minutes to Lunenburg. Scott was great at making us feel at home and made sure we were well taken care of. This place is a definite recommend and we hope to go back again.
Perfect lakeside retreat with easy access to Halifax
My family booked this property for our first visit to the Halifax area and were totally impressed with the entire experience. The owner, Scott, is extremely attentive to detail regarding the booking process (timely communication, excellent instructions, etc). The property is amazingly beautiful...set on a quiet lake just outside of Halifax. The cottage is tastefully decorated and stocked with everything you need for a relaxing time at the lake. We loved the large deck (complete with comfortable dining and lounging area) and also the dock (loved the adirondack chairs on the dock). The only problem I had with this rental was this: I did not want to leave!
Listen to the peaceful sounds of fish jumping, birds singing and the Loons calling while you watch incredible sunsets on your own 100 ft dock.
