Folly Lake Accommodations

Visit the beautiful Wentworth Valley at Folly Lake, Nova Scotia, Canada. This area is known for its spectacular scenery and is great for boating, hiking, skiing or snowboarding at nearby Ski Wentworth in the Cobequid Hills. The city of Truro is about 40 km away from your vacation rentals.

Folly Lake is a spring-fed lake of more than 200 surface acres. It is one mile long and a half of a mile wide. Folly Lake formed 10,000 years ago when melting waters from glaciers dammed up both ends of an ancient mountain pass with rock debris. Today the dams and a quarry that nearly surrounds the lake are a stunning setting for your vacation rental accommodation.

In present times, Folly Lake is a popular vacation destination. Anglers are attracted to its deep, cool waters to fish for trout and perch. The lake is also stocked with Atlantic salmon. There are two public boat ramps, one at each end of the lake, where you can launch your motor boat. The Village of Folly Lake is on the west bank. Cottages, cabins, are available around the lake for vacation rentals.

Folly Lake is one of the largest lakes in Colchester County and a popular spot for vacation rentals and tourist accommodations. Visitors come to enjoy spectacular views, boating, hiking, and snow skiing and snowboarding at nearby Wentworth. The ski resort is a short drive from your vacation rental accommodations at Folly Lake and offers winter fun for beginner and expert skiers and snowboarders alike.

Colchester County is home to numerous hiking trails that boast beautiful settings no matter what the season. The Kenomee Trail System is located in the Economy River Wilderness Area. The system's four trails offer river views from cliffs, a canopy of mature forests (maple, birch, hemlock and spruce), waterfalls, and copious wildlife including deer, moose, birds of prey, songbirds and wildflowers in the warmer months.

The area is also steeped in history. The Intercolonial Railway, now the CN, came through the area in the 1800s. The Colchester Historical Society and Museum in Truro has an exhibit that details 100 years of steam history. For lake lubbers doing double-time as history buffs, Truro is just a 25 minute drive from Folly Lake. Years later, the Folly Lake area continued its story with trains hauling away iron ore from the nearby town of Londonderry. A short drive from Folly Lake and your vacation rentals will take you to old mines that were harvested from 1849 to 1906. The town once was home to 5000 people involved in mining and steel making; now the township has just 200 residents.

Any season is a great time to rent holiday lodging from owners of cabins, cottages, and other vacation rental accommodation opportunities at Folly Lake. Whether you are coming for the sweet taste of maple syrup in the Spring, to reel in a salmon in the early summer, to take in the fall colours in September, or to hit the slopes in the winter, a beautiful destination awaits.

    Living Small in a Tiny House is Really About Living Big Tiny houses aren’t just for hipsters and millennials anymore. As Americans and Canadians have taken an interest in tidying up, downsizing their belongings and living more efficiently, the tiny house movement has gone mainstream, and it’s inspiring people of all ages to embrace small spaces. Our home is placed on one of the most magical places we have found in many years traveling around the world in our boat. It sits in a lovely green field full of apple trees, surrounded by mountains. Facing northeast is an ocean view, where a babbling brook ends as a waterfall on a private sandy beach. The perfect shower after an ocean swim. And its unspoilt quiet will help you to experience life with open eyes and a new energy. It is back to basics. It is heaven on earth. Everything you need is here: the brook supplies you with clear mountain water for your unique original wine barrel indoor shower; a propane stove for cooking; a sofa that looks out to an incredible view that opens into a single bed; and a loft with a comfortable king sized bed and four screened windows. In 2014 this tiny house was chosen to be one of the coolest 17 AirBnB listings in Canada The idea of living in a tiny house in the middle of nowhere, in a paradise, is even more: it is a way to be free and independent, gifted by mother nature with all the basics you need for happiness: solar power, water and warmth. A so called tiny house is built like a solid well insulated big house, but it needs only a small portion of the energy of a big house, thanks to high tech appliances and small rooms. Nothing is wasted, even the compost generated by the toilet can be used for gardening. Reduction makes us happy. This is the way of living we practiced for many years on the ocean in our sailboat. It has finally reached maturity in a new vision, on land. We want to share the vision, in a world of "too much", of wastefulness and of restlessness. Positive reviews proof that people appreciate this experience.
