Seabourne is magic.
My family, including my teenage daughter, 11 year old son, my husband and I came to Nova Scotia to visit friends in Chester. We had seen Seabourne on the web-site, and when we arrived it was even better than the lovely photos. The home is immaculate, warm and inviting. The property is magnificent, expansive yet intimate, overlooking a large and deep cove where sometimes whales come in. The private dock is charming, with bench seats where we enjoyed cocktails with our friends. The first night we were there, the sky was so breathtaking that we put a blanket on the lawn to lie down and stare at the seemingly endless galaxies.
The setting is very private and quiet, and I was concerned that the kids would get restless or bored. Instead, they were enchanted. They each had their own large and comfortable space, almost like their own apartment upstairs, and they were so content to stay there, take a walk around the property, read, watch movies, play games or just relax on the balcony.
We did go to Chester quite a bit, and the drive along the southern coast is beautiful, as is driving into Hubbards - like going back in time. We also toured Lunenburg and Halifax - also easy to get to and worth the trip.
It took us two days to reach Nova Scotia, and when we arrived it was as if Seabourne cast a spell on us - a warm welcome into a magical cocoon that we didn't want to leave. That's why we're coming back in August!
