The land is fully surveyed and the property boundary lines are clearly marked, making your land use and future development very easy.

The property is offered with private access to the Milford Haven River - a wide tidal river, and inlet of Guysborough Harbour and Chedabucto Bay (Atlantic Ocean). It is possible to moor a boat just off the shore from the water access lot and boat to the communities of Boylston and Guysborough to reach your favorite restaurant and coffee shop and attend a community event. Both communities also have public wharfs where you can dock your boat and sailboat and launch your boat into the water.

Fishing for Mackerel and Brown Trout in the Milford Haven River is very good. And if you are into watersport waterskiing, tubing, sea kayaking and canoeing, stand-up paddling, motor boating and sailing, then this is an excellent place for you and your family as there are miles of shoreline to explore and enjoy. The Milford Haven River is a large body of water, largely protected from strong winds and high waves of the open ocean. It extends westward 4.5 kilometers before narrowing to North Intervale Brook and Valley River. Heading eastward along the Milford Haven 5.0 kilometers will take you to the Boylston community wharf and another 5.0 kilometers to the town of Guysborough.

Welcoming locals will make you feel right at home here. By car, your land is within easy reach of the nearby communities via well maintained paved roads (plowed for snow in winter months). It is only 5 minutes to Boylston and about 12 minutes to Guysborough. Between the two communities you have all the necessary amenities for comfortable and active living. Health Care, Schools, banking, post office, gas, groceries, building supplies, coffee shops, entertainment, accommodations, and a wonderful array of recreation and fitness facilities.

Climate. The weather can be summed up into one word moderate. It rarely gets extremely hot or extremely cold. The daily temperature does fluctuate both by time of day and by your proximity to the ocean.

There are good opportunities for hiking, and several of the larger lakes are ideal for fishing and exploration by canoe. The immature old-growth deciduous forests in the wilderness area are considered to be regionally significant, protecting valuable habitat for local species.

In the fall, a dazzling show of color will take place around your land as the leaves change.
