Heron Shoal Cottage is an oceanfront vacation cottage rental secluded on 2½ acres of Nova Scotia’s scenic north coast. The location on the Malagash Peninsula is a "Scenic Diversion" of the Sunrise Trail. The cottage rental is centrally located in the Maritime Provinces, half-way between the towns of Pugwash and Tatamagouche, 60 minutes from Truro or Amherst and only 2 hours from Halifax or Charlottetown.
The cottage rental is a fully furnished, 1,200 square foot home, in a private setting directly on the oceanfront. Privacy, easy access to the beach and great views make this an excellent location for retreat and recreation any time of the year.
"Ce qui nous rend le plus heureux, c’est d’avoir reçu de toute famille du bonheur d’être ici. Nous avons eu de merveilleuses vacances. Merci,
p.s. deux hérons sont venu nous visiter"

From the privacy of your seaside cottage rental you can spend hours quietly watching the shorebirds and other wildlife in their natural habitat. The oceanfront is at your door, affording full water views of the Northumberland Strait, the warmest salt water north of the Carolinas. Heron Shoal Cottage allows you the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of this Nova Scotia setting while enjoying a cool drink, a good book or just the view. The months of May and June are lobster season on the Sunrise Trail and the lobster boats can be seen hauling in their delicious cargo directly in front of your rental cottage.
Prince Edward Island is visible across the Northumberland Strait. The 30 million year old rocky shore is a rich source of fossils and other treasures delivered by the sea. You are buffered from the world by a forest, home to deer and many other woodland creatures. The quiet roads of Nova Scotia’s Malagash peninsula are perfect for walking and biking. You are just a one minute drive from the Malagash Blue Sea Beach Park, a mile long, clean, safe beach which is ideally suited to children and adults alike for swimming, play or just walking on the sand bars. Most of the time it is just you and the ocean.
Heron Shoal Cottage rental is approved by Nova Scotia's Ministry of Tourism, and we are very proud of our facility, the location and level of service.
