There are only about a dozen homes encircling Peggy’s Cove. That is because the population of this marvelous village is 30 to 35 people depending on the season. They relish their simple and quiet lifestyle. As the weather warms, the tourists arrive in droves. Each sightseeing bus disembarks more curious visitors than residents. An estimated 500,000 to 700,000 tourists make the trip to Peggy’s Cove each year. If living in Peggy’s Cove still seems enviable, good luck making that happen. These homes rarely sell. They stay in the family for generations. When a house does go on the market, it can easily fetch $1 million CAD.
