What our guests say…

Hi to everyone checking out the Tackle Box Cottage. Such a great little spot to stay in a truly wonderful location close to Martinique Beach and the wonderful hub of Musquodoboit Harbour with all its great events and amenities. Everything is perfect for a relaxing stay at the cottage and the Host is so wonderful. We highly recommend this spot as a delightful holiday destination. We have had a great stay.
What an amazing little spot on the ocean! The tiny house is exactly as advertised and cute as a button. Great value for the price! Wendy was an amazing host, very accommodating and provided lots of awesome recommendations for things happening in the area during the weekend we stayed with her. Also strongly suggest taking her Harbour Retreat workshop it was the highlight of our weekend!
Nice little quiet place only 5 min drive to Martinique beach. We made good use of the BBQ and the firepit. It is a small charming spot with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. Would recommend to any solo traveller or couple. Wendy is a good host and very nice!
This place is a tranquil gem. The tiny house is well designed and has everything you will need. The backyard is beautifully done with plenty of outdoor space. The sunset views from the property are stunning. Martinique Beach and many trails for hiking and biking are just a short drive away. But the best part of this property is the owner Wendy. Her knowledge of the area and her dedication to making sure your stay is the best it can be is second to none. I very highly recommend this place!
The location is great, it is amazing to wake up and see the water glistening through the kitchen window, watching the tide come and go. Sitting at the back garden is a very nourishing experience, a wonderland of charming pockets of peace surrounded by beautiful trees and birds chirping around. Wendy is a wonderful soul, accommodating, friendly, loving, generous and you will be glad to have crossed paths with her. Her artworks are beautiful and her companion Luna is very sweet and lively. Being in the tiny home is cozy, and it gives a sampling of what life can be with less stuff. Highly recommended even as a detour. Would definitely stay here again. 5 stars in all aspects.
Wendy is a fantastic host and Harbour Retreat is perfectly located to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Nestled between Lawrence Town and Clam Harbour beaches, with Martinique Beach less than 5 km down the road….perfect. But you don’t have to leave the Harbour Retreat property to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery! This is our second year there and we can’t wait for our third!
