Located at the head of Nova Scotia’s Chedabucto Bay, the largest bay on the Atlantic Coast, the Authentic Seacoast™ Properties invited people to share their favourite winter activities the Authentic Seacoast.

 “The Authentic Seacoast is a great place for a winter getaway and we had hundreds of people share what they love to do when they visit in the winter,” said Authentic Seacoast™ Properties general manager, Audrey Firth. “From curling up with a good book and cocoa in front of the DesBarres Manor 18th century hearth fireplace, to coasting parties, snowshoeing on the Osprey Shores peninsula, puzzle building and cross country skiing on the Trans Canada Trail, we were thrilled with the hundreds of entries and how people love to getaway to the quiet of the Authentic Seacoast in the winter.”

The contest winner, Leslie Nicholson from Victoria Mines on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island, said her favourite winter activity on the Authentic Seacoast was Star Gazing. Leslie shared the way of life in the Maritimes when she wrote, “Looking at the stars puts my little world in proper perspective... a small part of a great, beautiful world.”  Leslie will receive a $50 gift card for holiday shopping at Skipping Stone Crafts & Gallery on the beautiful Guysborough Harbour.
