About Angie & Doug
The Calgary based owners have been spending their last 19 summers along with their 3 kids at Big Island. It is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life and have the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Doug is a native of Antigonish and remembers spending time on Big Island beach as a kid.
Angie & Doug purchased this Bungalow in 2014

We really enjoyed this cottage. The home is so comfortable and relaxing in an excellent location. It is very clean and well supplied with everything you could need. The owners were super to deal with. I definitely recommend this as an ideal vacation spot.
A great vacation by the Atlantic Ocean
This is a beautiful property with wonderful views of the Merigomish Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean. The cottage itself is lovely and has every comfort for a relaxing vacation. We especially enjoyed having morning coffee in the screened-in sunroom and watching for eagles, hummingbirds and other wildlife. Every room of the cottage is thought fully furnished and decorated. There were water-toys available for the children. Our party of 3 adults and two young children thoroughly enjoyed this vacation.
We had a great time the house was amazing. Would rent again.
The property is in a great location with wonderful views. Seeing the resident eagle in the trees at the bottom of the property was great. The house is well equipped and very clean. There is nothing that the owners have left out. The screened in porch was great to have as we used it quite often. The owners were very quick to respond with any questions. The beach is a short walk away and a convenience store is a very short drive away. I would not hesitate to recommend renting this property.
Angie and Doug's cottage was more than we had hoped for. It met every hope,expectation and more! The home in is superb condition, very clean and well stocked with everything you could possible need. They were very quick to respond to any questions we had. The location is amazing with access to the beach around the bend in the road. They even provided everything we needed for the beach. It made packing so much easier! We will be back for sure!
Tranquil and Lovely
Myself, my two girls, my sister and my parents spent a perfect week at this home. The house (not cottage) is beautifully decorated, spacious with a big screened in porch - a comfortable and peaceful location. I rent properties all over the world and this home in Merigomish was the most well equipped and perfectly set up rental I have ever experienced. Every little detail and need was thought through and well organized (notes, bocce ball, beach towels, beach chairs, you name it and it was there). We arrived late with no time to shop, and was so grateful to find coffee ready for us for the next morning. A life saver.
The spot is a perfect location to explore the area - easy drives to Antigonish, New Glasgow, Pictou, Cape Breton and PEI.
We rode our bikes or walked every evening on the causeway to Big Island to enjoy the sunsets. Loved seeing deer, bunnies and even a bald eagle on the extensive back lawn.
My only note is the beach was not ideal for swimming - a bit rocky and a few jelly fish. Perfect for strolling.
Angie was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. We will return.
