“This place was amazing! Obviously the photos do not do justice but none really could. If you don’t mind long drives, being secluded from people, and 1 hour from closest town it’s perfect! Which we loved lol the views are something indescribable and the cottage is so cute and homey we snuggled into the house and are very sad we are headed back to Ontario! Thanks for this incredibly relaxing experience and sharing it!” J (Oct 2017)

“Spent 4 fantastic nights at Bramble Lane. This is easily the nicest cottage I have visited. We didn’t see a soul in 4 days- the cottage has everything you could need but isn’t pretentious. The beds and bedding are lovely and the scenery is out of this world. Incredible spot- can’t wait to go back!” J (August 2017)

“Lisa and Hugh were able to accomodate us very quickly due to a host cancelling our original booking last minute. We were lucky to stay in their secluded cottage on the ocean. The place was cozy, clean and had everything you need for a great stay. Do consider picking up groceries (as the hosts recommended) on your way to the cottage as the closest grocery store is almost an hour away. You can hear the waves crashing all the way to the bedrooms- it’s truly special! We have already recommended this place to our friends and family traveling in the area.”  S & A, Montreal (June 2015)

“Off the beaten track, Bramble Lane was a perfect ending to our Nova Scotia vacation. We had 3 wonderful nights here. The ocean pounding on the rocks, the visiting deer, the basking seal all added to our stay. The cottage was clean, well serviced, and comfortable. If you want to get away from busy days, distractions, and city noises…this is the place to come.” D.H., Waterloo, Ontario (June 2015)

“Couldn’t have asked for a more peaceful setting. We finally got exactly what we have been looking for: complete privacy and the pleasant crash of the surf. We will certainly come back to this lovely spot.”  J & H, Port Severn Ontario (June 2014)

“On the one hand we’re devastated to be leaving this morning, but on the other we’re overjoyed for having spent a week at this serenely beautiful cottage.” J & N, Montreal Quebec (June 2014)

“My sweet girlfriend and I had one of the best vacations ever here. It was only three nights but everything was fantastic. Making meals, woodstove, walking in the dark along the beach. We’ve been all over Nova Scotia by now and will surely find ourselves returning to this hidden gem.” J & C, Halifax Nova Scotia (Oct 2013)

“Arrived later than expected but what a welcome! Discovered Bramble Lane by accident on the internet and couldn’t be more delighted by this treasure of a cottage. Just what we had hoped to find…serenity, ocean, and magical aura away from it all.” M & J, Bedford Nova Scotia (August 2013)</p)

“Arrived at 4:02 under a clear, sunny, blue sky. What sights and sounds greeted us after hard days of travel. Enjoyed our first meal here tonight and have already discovered Johnston’s Pond beach. It is our 4th trip to Nova Scotia and it never disappoints.” J & V, Chillicothe Ohio (July 2013)

“Brilliant place. Great scenery and relaxation. Great to be without TV and internet. We loved the firefly displays. Our main purpose was astronomy. Superb dark skies at night, Milky Way billowing to the horizon.” J & M, London England (July 2013)

“A wonderful week + one day at Bramble Lane, all the peace and serenity one could want. Saw porpoise, a possible whale, many seals and eiders, and about 40+ bird species. All with the ocean constant. Perfect!” J & J, North Carolina (June 2013)
