Trip Advisor Rating Based on 35 Reviews

4834 St. Peter’s Fourchu Road


At St. Esprit Lake Wilderness Holiday, you will find a private cottage that will allow for the peaceful upscale vacation stay within nature that you’ve always dreamed of. Relax by the lake, hike along our trails, or kayak/canoe to the ocean with complete privacy.

Our cottages give you a luxurious vacation experience, featuring a beautiful wooden interior, Wi-Fi and satellite TV, designer log furniture, a balcony and stunning lakeside views. All cottages are at least 50-80 metres away from the host house and other cabins, with trees acting as an additional barrier for privacy. You’ll be able to lounge on your balcony and bask in the sun while enjoying your outdoor BBQ with the utmost privacy. Access to the lake (which often reaches temperatures of 26°C (79°F) in the summer) is just seconds away, and what is arguably the most private beach you’ll find in Nova Scotia is just a 30-minute kayak tour away. 99% of the time, you’ll be the only one on St. Esprit beach!
The B&B features a private entrance so guests can move about freely by themselves without sharing any living space with the host. Just outside the private entrance is a garden/terrace, which features a beautiful view of the lake amidst lush green plant life and scenery. The B&B itself features a queen-sized bed, satellite TV with flat screen, Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, microwave, outdoor BBQ, lakeside firepit, and free parking. There’s 24/7 access to the snack/drink bar attached to the office, as well as free complimentary hot beverages from our Keurig machine.

Breakfast is available to all guests 8:00–11:00 am, as requested: free for B&B guests, $15 CAD/person for guests staying in cottages.
