It has everything we could need, very clean and calm surroundings. It was well worth the drive from Montreal, Quebec, and we will recommend your cottage to anyone who plans to visit the Maritimes. Rex(dog) wants to thank you as well as he enjoyed the land and beach.

We enjoyed a wonderful two weeks at Calm Water Cottage. Spotlessly clean with ample supplies of whatever anyone may need. We had fun on the beautiful beach, enjoyed swimming and digging clams. Calm Water was home away from home.

Thank you so much for providing a quiet and calm home away from home. We couldn't have picked a better spot. Everything was perfect!! This cottage was the perfect place to unwind and spend our honeymoon. You really thought of everything. It was wonderful having a beach less than five minutes away. We had so much fun enjoying the firepit and roasting marshmallows that we almost never want to leave. Thank you again. This was a memorable and comfortable vacation and we cannot wait to come back someday!
