Lakefront cottages under $180k

Are you looking for a recreational property? A place where you can get away from it all, have peace and quiet in a natural surrounding? What kind of place are you looking for? If it's waterfront, should it be on a lake, a river, the ocean, or does it matter?

It was important for me to have a body of water that I could swim in; it didn't matter if it was the ocean, a river or a lake, but I needed to be able to at least dip into the water as a refreshing break from the hot sauna which is also a requirement for my personal dream location. Some people don't need to swim at all. A smaller, shallower pond offers the beauty of wildlife all around.

Today's tour is of the area to the east of Halifax, looking at lakefront cabins, cottages and camps available in Nova Scotia today, all offering great swimming and boating experiences.

Covey Lake (15 minutes to Bridgewater, 1 hour to Halifax)

$125,000, 1 Bed. 320 square feet.

Torment Lake (50 minutes to Chester, 1h20min to Halifax)

$179,900, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 762 square feet.

Zwicker's Lake (1 hour 45 minutes from Halifax, 1 hour to Wolfville)


2 Bedrooms, 420 square feet.

What's important to you? The swimming experience, the boating experience, the coziness of the cabin? How far are you willing to travel from major cities? Do you need electricity, plumbing, a well? These are some of the questions I'd like to ask you as we begin the search for your slice of paradise.

It's also important to know that getting a mortgage on a recreational property can be challenging. It would be best to have a financing strategy in place before we begin looking in earnest. In the meantime, it's also important to dream. I'd be happy to be a part of this adventure, call me up. Nicole, 902-717-3438.
