Ocean front get away with private beach and custom built timber frame

Beachfront vacation home for sun and fun
The home is a custom built, one of a kind timber frame house located on 14 acres with your own private beach. The house was built by retired father and son (owner), making this a true labour of love. This was a 6 year endeavor/hobby for the two, starting from the raw log and sawing all timbers and materials on site. This includes all traditional joinery connected using wooden pegs, along with many other custom features. The home was completed in 2010 and has breathtaking views of Merigomish harbour which opens into the Northumberland Strait. The shallow entry waters make for safe and enjoyable swimming for all ages. During low tide, kids can run and have hours of fun exploring the sand bars and finding treasures. This house is perfect for enjoying morning coffees or evening cocktails on the deck overlooking the stunning ocean, taking long walks on your beach, watching your kids run on the picturesque sand bars or enjoying a BBQ with friends while watching the sun set low over the Merigomish Harbour. You won't regret spending a week away from it all in this beach front oasis.
This property has its own private sandy beach. You can enjoy the stunning views from the deck or go for a leisurely walk on your secluded beach and watch the sun go down over the ocean. The house is centrally located on a 100 acres family owned property.

It is located minutes away from Melmerby beach Provincial Park which is located on the Northumberland Shore. The Northumberland is known for it's warm waters, averaging more than 22 degrees Celsius (72F) in the summer, Melmerby is a popular 2-km (1.25-mi) beach with boardwalks.

The Perfect Place to Relax
My husband and I spent a week here and loved it. The house is gorgeous, and beautifully situated above the beach on Merigomish Bay. If you're a kayaker, this is the place for you--the bay is peaceful even when it's choppy beyond, and lots of islands to explore. Kirk has provided everything you could want for your stay, a great kitchen for foodies. Lots of comfy chairs and sofas with that wonderful view, and the bedrooms are so airy with huge windows that open all around to the sea breezes. Kirk lives right next door and was very helpful and friendly. Birdwatchers: we saw kingfishers, herons, plovers, sandpipers, cormorants and a bald eagle. Would be a terrific place to bring children--the water is very shallow quite a way out and lots of fun beach treasures to discover. Highly recommended!

Idealic Location
Wonderful private property. Stunning post & beam cottage. Beautiful vistas. And Kirk is very personable and accommodating.

5/5 Excellent

Marvelous location and property. There aren’t enough words to describe this bright and beautiful one-of-a-kind house. On site rocky beach with sandbars on a shallow cove and a 5 minute drive to Melmerby Beach. Note that this is someone’s actual hand-built house so the pine floors, high end appliances and fancy windows need TLC - ie not a place you want to damage with a house party or carelessness. The internet speed is exactly what you’d expect at the end of a rural road, and the water is exactly what you’d expect if you’re used to well water (the excellent fridge filter saves you from needing bottled). I needn’t have worried when we were low on propane as a new tank appeared in under 5 minutes when we ran out mid-barbecue. Wonderful owner. It was very hard to leave!

Great place to relax
Beautiful home, amazing view from the waterfront deck. The private beach was perfect for shell collecting with my 12 year old. The house was very clean and property excellently maintained. We would definitely stay there again

Cherished family memories made!
We were so lucky to find such a fantastic property! We were isolating due to Covid-19 for two weeks before two of our children could attend Dalhousie. Kirk’s house and property allowed seven of us to have the best family holiday! The house was incredibly beautiful and spacious, the property stunning. And Kirk such a gracious, helpful host.
