Blue Cottage Vacation are open for
Summer 2024

The Blue Cottage is one of five concrete cottages sculpted in the 1930’s by Charles Macdonald on Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy. It is owned by the Charles Macdonald Society and is operated as a fund-raiser for the charitable organization. Available only to members, reservations are made on a first-come, first-serve basis! 

The Blue Cottage has two bedrooms upstairs each with a double bed. Running water is gravity-fed from a spring in the woods. We recommend bottled water for drinking. The cottage is situated on a two-acre oceanfront lot at Huntington Point, two miles west of Halls Harbour, NS. Cell reception can be limited, and no wifi provided. It's like camping, but better. 

Costs: The Blue Cottage is $550 per week (for a full week) for an occupancy of 2 people. Each additional person is $50 per week (i.e., 3 people $600, 4 people $650). There is a $50 pet cleaning fee. There are three Short Weeks in the schedule. Short Weeks start at $400 for an occupancy of 2 people ($450 for 3 people, $500 for 4 people).
