(Little) Big Island Beauty

Hello there!

We know you will enjoy our private seaside cabin. You will have your very own private south facing water frontage while also being within walking distance of Big Island Beach.

This little piece of North Western Nova Scotia is a mix of rich rolling farming hills and traditional Northumberland fishing grounds.

The space
While here you will have exclusive use of the cabin during your stay. We know you will find it a great place to get away and disconnect with no wifi and surrounded by the beauty of nature! (and wow is it ever dark at night!)

The cabin is on a 3 acre parcel with over 500 feet of South facing tidal beach on Merigomish Bay. Please feel free to explore and make use of the whole property; we love having visitors and sharing this beautiful part of Nova Scotia!

Where you’ll be

Merigomish, Nova Scotia, Canada

Big Island is the largest of several islands separating the Northumberland Straight from Merigomish Bay in Pictou County.

The “Island” is accessible via a beautiful 6 km long sand dune causeway accessed off Highway 245 - the “Shore Road” at Barney’s River.

The Mi’kmaq were the earliest inhabitants of the Merigomish area and the word “Merigomish comes from “Malegomish”, which means “the merrymaking place”.

The closest grocery store is about 30 minutes away in either New Glasgow or Antigonish but we do have our own General Store just “off island”.

The LBR is a gas station, general store and NSLC location on the main Shore Road.
