Dean Lake Cottage


The Chalet is situated on a 67 acres natural lakeside property with more than 7.000 ft. private lakeshore, included are also 7 private islands.

From Halifax International Airport it’s an approx. 2 hour drive to Dean Lake Chalet. On the way you pass Bridgewater, where you can find several big supermarkets as well as a small shopping mall. 15 minutes away is the village of Caledonia with a mid-size supermarket, a gas-station, a Café, a Liqueur Store, a Pharmacy and much more.

The location of Dean Lake Chalet is perfect for those who want to discover the South of Nova Scotia, for example it’s just a 45 min drive to the towns of Liverpool or Bridgewater or to the Bay of Fundy. Kejimkujik National Park is just 20 minutes awan and Nova Scotia’s Capital City Halifax at least 1,5 hours.

The lake

Dean Lake is probably one of the nicest lakes in Nova Scotia. It runs directly into the bigger McGowan lake, where more small islands can be found. Beautiful Dean Lake gives you real Canada-feeling, because there are almost no trees on the lake shore - Pure nature!

We recommend a relaxis paddle tour with canoe or kayak, which are available to our guests for exploring the connected lakes. The many small islands offer the perfect setting for a short break. One of the islands even has a table, so pack a lunch.

Fortunately, you will rarely come across motorboats, jetskis or noisy float planes. From the deck you have a wonderful lake view and can calmly enjoy a day on the waterfront. Sit back, relax and enjoy the colors of the Canadian outdoors. In the summer the water is warm enough to swim and in winter the lake is mostly frozen.


Because of the short distance of 12 km beeline to the Kejimkujik National Park there is a high wildlife concentration in the area. With a bit of luck you can see white-tailed deer, raccoons, skunks or porcupines in the surrounding woods. Squirrels and Chipmuks even come on the deck. On the lake you can find the famous bold eagles, Canada goose or the particularly protected loons who belong to the great northern divers and are imaged on the Canadian one dollar coin.
