About Us

Emily’s Cottages are six beautiful cottages located on over twenty acres of ocean front private property in Seafoam, Nova Scotia, on the shores of the Northumberland Straight overlooking Prince Edward Island. From each cottage you can enjoy the stunning views, sunrises, and sunsets. All units offer most of the comforts you’ll ever need.

Emily’s Cottages is a joint partnership of Eric and Jeanette Romkey and their youngest son, Rick Romkey – all Nova Scotians. Jeanette had run a successful bed and breakfast for over ten years. The cottages have been family built and when not enjoyed by our guests, are enjoyed by our family and friends.

Seafoam is located east of Cape John on the Northumberland shore of Nova Scotia. Seafoam was founded in or around 1811 by Donald McKenzie who came from Scotland and purchased the improvements made by Norman McLeod at Cape John (now Seafoam). Seafoam’s name was prompted by one of the area’s natural features — a light covering of foam on the open fields which blows off the surface of the angry seas during storms.
