Adventure and Relaxation in a Unique Environment

Choose Golden Crest as your private residence far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, located in the beautiful and extensive forests of the South Shore of Nova Scotia's Ponhook Lake. Enjoy the stunning views of the lake's varied islands and bays or dive directly into the cool lake water after a sauna session.

Relax by your own campfire right on the shore and hear the owls calling while the stars twinkle above the water. Choose between pure relaxation or activities on and around the lake. Numerous well-known excursion destinations are ideally located for day trips in accessible surroundings.

The rent is CAD 400 (plus 15% HST) per day with a minimum rental period of 5 days. The fee for the final cleaning is CAD 180. The price includes bed linen and towels. Change of towels every seventh day of the rental.

Golden Crest is located at one of the most diverse and largest lakes on South Shore Nova Scotia's, Ponhook Lake, and is approximately 2 hours from Halifax Airport.

The Golden Crest Lake Retreat is suitable for up to four people.

The spacious central living room with adjoining dining area and large open-plan kitchen have been furnished to a high standard.

The technical equipment includes a large curved TV and WLAN as well as a desk area in one of the bedrooms.
The two sleeping areas are each equipped with a king-size double bed and ensuite bathroom. One of the bathrooms has a door leading to the outside (for example to reach the sauna), a separate toilet and a ground-level rain shower. The other ensuite bathroom has a floor-level rain shower and a bathtub. The bedrooms are connected to the lounges on the east and west sides of the building, which ensures maximum privacy.

Golden Crest's southern exposure offers sunshine all day, magnificent views of the bays and islands, and complete privacy on the property. The large wooden deck is equipped with comfortable armchairs.

The house can be reached via the almost 200 m long private driveway over gravel and offers parking spaces for up to 3 cars.

Stand-Up-Paddling: Two high quality touring boards are available for you on the shore. Discover the numerous bays and islands of the lake without any engine noise. Besides, it is also a fantastic workout!

Sauna on the lake: Your personal Finnish sauna awaits you on the lake shore. Enjoy the panorama and then dare to take a well-deserved cool down in the lake.

Go canoeing: Pack your picnic and a good wine and discover the lake the classic Canadian way. A canoe is waiting for you at the house!

Boat tours: In the immediate vicinity there is the possibility to explore the lake as a guest on a pontoon boat – either during the day for swimming or in the evening for a sundowner (availability and arrangement on site)

Fishing: Two-hour fishing trip, your skipper will take you to the best spots on the lake. Equipment included. (Availability on site by arrangement)

Hiking: From the house you can explore the forests on many paths and trails, or take a day trip to the nearby Kejimkujik National Park.

Yoga: Some meditative forms of yoga focus on mental concentration, others more on physical exercises and positions as well as breathing exercises. Whatever your goal is, the environment is more than ready for you! Whether it is greeting the sun on the deck at dawn, finding harmony with nature in the sunshine, or actively working out throughout the day. Yoga mats and dumbbells are available for your use.
