Firebrand Island Retreat is a rare and truly one of a kind experience for nature lovers, who are looking to take a break from their busy urban pace.

El lugar

This secluded Island getaway, with its private 1400 sq ft red ceder log Home, combines green energy with all the comforts of home. The home is powered by a 10 KW Solar unit and totally self sufficient. Replace the bustling sounds of the City with the calls of the Loons, the blinding Streetlights with the flickering glow of a campfire. Reconnect with nature.

Disponible para huéspedes

Firebrand Island is a 28 acre island situated on Paces Lake, a glacial Lake located near Musquodoboit Harbour on the Eastern shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. The cedar Log Home is located on the south side of the Island and nestled in amongst mature hemlock groves, incredible granite boulders, and thick carpets of moss.

The Home features two separate bedrooms for 4 adults and a bonus loft space for kids. Both bedrooms are connected by a large shared modern bathroom, and there is a separate powder room located at the entrance. The open concept living space, with its central wood stove and large windows , overlooks the pristine lake and stunning cliff face across the water. Decks located on the South and South-West side of the Log Home are ideal for sunbathing, lounging or entertaining. The South facing Deck is partly sheltered allowing you to BBQ or sit outside and relax with a glass of wine even in the case of inclement weather. An outdoor campfire pit is located close to the House and is a great place for a memorable evening of campfire sing-along, ghost stories, roasted marshmallows, or star gazing. Firewood is always available and free of charge.

Karl and Rosie's place is fabulous ! Extra clean , modern and has everything you need. Karl was really nice and easy to deal with when we left the house snd came back. The island and the lake are magical. Our kids and us loved it and already missing it.

Everything was perfect for an unplugged weekend away. I couldn't say one bad thing about our stay and our hosts. By far the best accommodations during our stay throughout Nova Scotia. Advice for fellow travelers: cell service still available from the island, make sure you plan to arrive and leave during reasonable hours as you will need transported to the island.

Karl and Rosie are great hosts. They made us feel very welcome and were quick to respond for rides to shore. The cabin is amazing. Off the grid, super well built and designed, and fully outfitted. It is worth the trip just for the shower! The cabin sits on an island in a great lake. Swimming and canoeing is right out the door. The lake is very quiet, we saw only one other boat the whole week. You have to see it to truly appreciate how perfect the cabin is to stay in and enjoy. We did a whole week and loved it every minute. We went to shore for a couple afternoons and Karl was more than happy, and very responsive to or requests, to give us a lift on his boat. Funny thing was after a couple hours on shore we were ready to get back to "our island".

This property is exquisite. There are so many thoughtful details, both inside and out that made our stay exceptional. The gorgeous ensuite bathroom must be seen to be believed. There is a second drawer-style fridge under the counter for extra goodies or favourite bevies. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need, including some lovely little treats and extras...and a child's highchair if needed. While life inside is comfortable, the real living is outside. Whether we were dining at the picnic table or relaxing on comfy wooden loungers on the wrap around deck, roasting marshmallows or cooking over the fire, or down at the dock canoeing or taking a dip in the delightfully warm, clear water we enjoyed every single moment of our time at this private lakeside wonder. There are no issues or inconveniences with being solar powered / off the grid. Toilets still flush and lights still shine! ;) And Karl is wonderfully accommodating with travel to and from the island. The short trip across is smooth and comfortable on his beautiful pontoon boat. Communication with the host is effortless, as was check-in/check-out. This gem should definitely be on your list of places to spend a few relaxing days with a special someone, family, or friends when visiting Nova Scotia.

This was our second time staying on Firebrand Island and our group spent much of the last 12 months talking about and planning our return. Karl and Rosie's island cottage is a truly unique and amazing escape and they were extremely responsive and accommodating hosts during our stay. We are already discussing our 2018 booking dates. Highly recommended!
