Wonderful Night's Sleep by the Sea

Each bedroom is furnished with family antiques and custom-designed pine furniture built by my father and I. The curtains were hand-sewn locally, original artwork is by your host Kevin Creaser -- that's me. As well, Gladee's has a unique gathering of Nova Scotian collectables.

Queen size bed and two doubles accommodate six. Two of the beds have antique frames used by my great-grandfather's family. We fitted them to new, quality mattresses which top box springs, thereby adding to our guests' comfort. Each bed has two night stands and two small, mood-setting table lamps. Soft romance or settling in for a good read, the choice is yours. The bedrooms have flashlights -- even if they're not needed, the youngsters enjoy using them!

You'll have a wonderful sleep in the master bedroom, "Gladee's Blue Ocean," where you'll awaken to the sound of rounding surf. From the bed, you can look out both windows for spectacular views of the lake and ocean. In the spring, I've often been treated to the charming sight of ducks swimming in the lake with their young. Flocks of herring gulls are friendly, frequent flyers who like to flit by and say, "Hello!"

"Gladee's Green Leaf Room" has an antique armoire with drawers for your clothes. Translucent leaf shades on table nightlights cast a romantic glow. A small, adjoining deck beckons, inviting you to enjoy the evening as the sun goes down. Two Adirondack chairs and a small chair complete the package.
