Retreat To Nova Scotia Ocean Estate

If a secluded getaway with spectacular views, plenty to do and a delightful summer and autumn climate sounds appealing, we may have what you want.

Eagle’s Cliff is a spacious four-bedroom, 3.5-bath house set on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Maine about 20 minutes from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. We bought and manage the house and a surrounding 20-acre parcel as part of a client’s international real estate portfolio. The home is kept nicely furnished and fully equipped for our client’s family to use at all times, but it also is available for year-round rentals at rates well below comparable oceanfront properties in nearby New England. Rates vary from $1,100 to $2,250 (U.S.) per week, depending on the season.

Comfortable high-speed ferry service connects Yarmouth with Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine, from May to October. Halifax, with direct flights from major cities, is a scenic three-hour drive. Eagle’s Cliff is a short walk from the sandy shore at Mavillette Beach Provincial Park. The local villages are Acadian and have a French heritage, though English is spoken everywhere. Nearby, the Bay of Fundy offers whale-watching cruises, some of the best shellfish anywhere — the scallops are famous — and, of course, the world’s highest tides.

The house is supplied with all the necessities and boasts balconies, a sunny wraparound deck, and a beach-stone fireplace. Every room has a sunset view of the water, which lies more than 100 feet below the cliffs.
