About Beth Newell

I am 60 years old but feel like twenty especially living near the ocean. I was born on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy where you can see the highest tides in the world. I grew up in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario where I studied dance at York University and eventually received my Masters in Counselling Psychology. I have been a Counselling Therapist here in Nova Scotia since 2001 when I returned to the ocean I love. My husband was a police officer with the Dartmouth Police for 33 years. He is now retired and looks after a disabled brother and everyone else in the family. We live about 8 km from the cottage.

Beth Newell purchased this house in 2003

Why Beth Newell chose Halifax

You will know when you arrive. It is a little gem on the Atlantic Ocean. Very cozy with lots of handmade art and an ever-changing panoramic view of the ocean from the two large front windows. Everything you need to make great meals and lots of walking trails in every direction. Many of my guests have returned several times because there is no place like it.

What makes this house unique

Out in the country and not far from the city of Halifax. Watch surfers or surf yourself all year round. Many beautiful beaches, Lawrencetown Beach 10 minutes on the trail away and others from 8 minutes and up. This is a very central location to use as a base to tour Nova Scotia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an incredibly beautiful space you have. Thanks for sharing.We spent so much time just listening and looking at the ocean-no better way to fall asleep!

It doesn't get any better than this!

Location! Location! Location!

The sea is literally at your doorstop and constantly enchanting the eye from every spot on this property. Our goal was to be as close to the sea as possible, and we got what we came for. The house is quaint, charming, rustic and leaves you feeling as though you have been there before, comfortable, like home. everything you need is there. The wood stove was excellent. The kitchen, though small, is perfectly adequate.

Having the trail right there is exceptional. The place is also well set up for dogs.

We honestly cannot wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and sweet review of the little Seadance Cottage nestled by Lawrencetown Beach. I have had such great guests since I have started renting the cottage. They take care of it like it is their own. Everyone has respected me and my little cottage. We thank you very much!

A perfect getaway with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to give the kind of review that Seadance deserves for fear that it will be booked whenever we want to come back :) This cottage is clean, comfortable, bright and perfectly laid out for humans and dogs. Having chronic back pain, I was very pleased that both the seating options and the bed were SO comfortable!

Beth was a kind host and easy to communicate with, and you can tell that she has put thought into every detail of this cozy hideaway overlooking the sea. We felt so at home, our dogs had a blast and will definitely be back!

seaside cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this seaside cabin. It has an amazing view and is really cozy. It is also walking distance to 2 really good surf spots. If your looking for a place to stay to surf for just relax by the fire, read a book and stare at the ocean this is the spot. Its only 30 minutes to down town Halifax so its easy to go into the city for dinner or some night life too.

Pure Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, well equipped cottage. The LOCATION was the star of the show!

Private, not isolated. Comfortable and cosy with a great wood stove. Decorated casually with many personal touches and lots of interesting artwork. Beautiful Atlantic View Trail steps away for walking/hiking. And, oh, the OCEAN! An absolutely spectacular view. We had the opportunity to meet Beth, the owner of this gorgeous property and she was lovely to deal with. Can’t wait to visit again, park myself on the deck and breathe in that fresh, salty ocean air! We loved every moment!

Beyond beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This tidy cottage is packed with charm and all the basic amenities anyone would ever need for a seaside visit. Everything was clean and in order, it was lovely to meet Beth when she dropped by, and the beach and sea were beautiful beyond description. We will dream of the day that we return for another visit. Beth, we both thank you so very much for sharing this space with beachside wanderers!

Lawrencetown is a beach community with the best surfing in Canada all year round. The village is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Halifax where there are historic attractions, shopping,restaurants and theatre. My home has a panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean and the lights of the Halifax harbour can be seen at night. The house is next to the Canada Trail a marvelous walking and cycling trail that winds around the oceanside. My house has a dog pen for your pet. The house is set up on a cliff and is very private with the closest neigbours over 1/2 mile away.September is a great month to visit here as the weather is still beautiful and the beaches are deserted.
