Retreat and relax in this rustic cottage on quiet Zwickers Lake. This lakeside cottage is ideal for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Feed our free range chickens, enjoy a paddle in the kayaks, canoe or pedalboat, and let the kids play in the sand with the many beach toys.

The lake is spring-fed, so it's lovely and clear. Perfect for swimming, floating, and fishing.

The space
COVID-19 Update: We are accepting bookings for Nova Scotia residents only for summer 2021.

If you wish to use communal items such as the kayaks or canoe, please bring your own sanitizing wipes to clean these items.

The cottage has fresh, clean filtered drinking water, right from the tap! No need to bring bottled water, just bring your water bottle for taking water down to the bleach.

This is a one bedroom cottage. The bedroom contains a comfy double bed and a bunk bed with single mattresses. The pullout couch turns into a double bed.

All sheets, pillows and blankets and provided for the main bedroom, please bring your own bedding if you intend to use the pullout couch.

The kitchenette has a toaster, coffeemaker (coffee, filters and sugar provided), fridge, single burner cooktop, large toaster oven, griddle, crock pot, microwave and a BBQ. All pots, pans, cutlery and dishes, etc. are supplied.

The bathroom has a shower, sink & toilet. Please bring your own toiletries. Towels are provided.

Please note: there is no wifi at the cottage.

Both cottages have their own private fire pit. There is also a communal beach fire pit. Kindling and a small amount of firewood available at no charge. Additional firewood can be purchased for $5 a bundle, cash only, or you are welcome to bring your own. Your cottage has two folding camp chairs and two plastic Adirondack chairs.

Two kayaks, a family canoe and paddle boat is available for your use. Life jackets of various sizes are provided. Bring your fishing rod and licence and paddle out to fish for small mouth bass. There’s a hammock at the beach for your relaxing, and plenty of chairs. The water is clear and warm and the beach is gently sloped making it perfect for kids. Your kids will love the permanent raft for jumping, and the cove has no boat traffic so it’s safe for swimming. There is very little boat activity on the lake.

To reach the cottage, you must drive down a short hill on a gravel road, easily accessible by all types of vehicles.

We will be home to greet you and check you in, and provide you with a personalized code.

The number of people on the reservation is the number of people permitted on the property. If you have reserved for two adults and one child, only two adults and one child will be permitted to check in. Please ensure you have reserved for the correct number of people. If you have reserved for the incorrect number of people, please submit an alteration request prior to check in. Max 5.

This is a quiet lake, and loud partying is not permitted. Quiet time is 10pm to 8am. We do live on site, and are usually available at all times. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed when not in the cottage.
