Mussel Beach

Mussel Beach is a semi-detached, self-catering oceanfront cottage with a large outdoor patio area that contains a large picnic table, chairs and colourful “Weber Q BBQ” (we supply the propane). Inside, natural light floods the cottage through a large picture window and the sliding patio door through which you enter the cottage. During Winter 2017 the cottage was substantially renovated and upgraded and the front yard significantly improved.

If you’re coming with family or friends, we recommend booking our Herring Row and Mussel Beach cottages. This enables you to enjoy and share the full, private benefits of two large patio areas.
