Nova Scotia Vacation Rentals

Nova Scotia vacation rentals provide a place to stay with all the comforts of home. If you want something a bit more unique than a hotel, but a little more upscale than camping, this is the perfect way to go. With options ranging from camping cabins to grand homes on the beach, found throughout the province, a vacation rental can be an option for all types of budgets and plans.

Many of the Nova Scotia vacation homes are located right on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean as well as alongside bays, lakes, and rivers. Bodies of water and beaches are easy to come by in Atlantic Canada, and so are rentals. When you choose to stay in one of the rentals along the beach you have the benefit of location. In just steps, instead of miles, you'll be standing on the beach ready to have some fun swimming, or going for a stroll where the sand meets the surf. You can easily return to your Nova Scotia vacation rentals for lunch or a chance to relax without putting a big dent in your plans, and don't have to worry about waking up early to pack the car and beat the crowd.

Beside location, Nova Scotia vacation homes have the benefits of space. You won't have to spend your entire vacations squeezed into a tiny box with two double beds and a desk. All of the comforts of home will be there, including a living room, private bedrooms, and a kitchen. A fully-stocked food prep area can add a lot of value to an Atlantic Canada getaway because you can save money cooking your own meals and enjoy dining on your own terms. You'll find plenty of grocery stores and farmers markets where you can stock up on fresh, local food. The province is known for its fresh seafood, naturally, as well as berries and food influenced by Nova Scotia's Celtic and Gaelic roots.

On Cape Breton Island, the residents are particularly proud of their heritage. It's easy to find live music, lively pubs, and artisans who keep the old traditions alive. Throughout the island, Nova Scotia vacation rentals are located settled into some of the most scenic settings anywhere. The northern tip of the island, which is itself at the northern part of the province, is rimmed by the Cabot Trail. This scenic route twists and winds through soaring highlands, rocky coastlines, and lush forests. Nova Scotia vacation homes can be found all around this route, which is favored by outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for a memorable setting for their getaways.

Nova Scotia cabins are also available at the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and other sites throughout Cape Breton Island, including the Bras d'Ors Lakes on the center of the island. These beautiful inland lakes are an excellent place for sailing, bird watching tours, and swimming. Vacation homes and cabins along the shores are available to rent in every season. Summers can fill up quickly, so be sure to make reservations well in advance.

If you're more of a spontaneous traveler, you'll want to look for one of the campgrounds with cabins that can be reserved for that night. Nova Scotia cabins are a nice alternative to tent camping, especially if the weather calls for rain. With a roof over your head and a nice bed, you can look forward to a good night's sleep. And some Nova Scotia cabins go beyond the basics, offering kitchens, linens, and other comforts of home.
