'Stillwater's End' is a beautiful waterfront home, considered the 'jewel' of Stillwater Lake. A short 15 minute drive to Halifax, this new luxury home offers the best of both worlds. Situated at the end of a long private lane, your vacation home has the entire north end of the lake to itself. At the foot of the grounds are the wharf and floating dock, where you and your family can swim in the spring-fed lake, or take the pedal boat and explore the 'still waters'...
Within a 3 minute drive, or 15 minute walk, is the Hubley Center featuring a full range of amenities, including a variety of shops, restaurants, the local family pub, groceries, a liquor outlet, DVD rentals, fitness center, rec center, library and skateboard park. For the more adventurous shoppers, you can even take a short cut across the lake using the pedal boat!
A short, scenic drive takes you to the area beaches, local events and so on. Stillwater's End is located midway between the city of Halifax, and the start of the 'South Shore' region of Nova Scotia.
Stillwater's End is the ideal launching spot and 'home base' for your east coast vacation!
St. Margaret's Bay/ Lunenburg - Many scenic routes are close at hand. Majestic Peggys Cove is about 25 minutes away along the world-famous Lighthouse Route that runs the length of St. Margaret's Bay, a popular sailing, diving and fishing destination.
World UNSECO site Lunenburg, still a working fishing port and home of the tall ship Bluenose II, and the romantic sea-side town of Mahone Bay are within an easy 45 minute drive. St. Margaret's Bay and its sailing club are about 10-15 minutes from Stillwater Lake, as are a multitude of authentic antique shops, restaurants, and ocean-front artists' galleries.
The 'Ten Beaches' region starts just a few miles from Stillwater's End as well for those looking to connect with the ocean. Lawrencetown Beach - our world famous North Atlantic surfing destination is less than an hour away along the Eastern Shore. Lessons and equipment rentals are available at the beach!
The nearby sea-side village of Hubbards features great evening entertainment, with live music and open mic/ jam-sessions by the surprising number of professional and semi-pro musicians that have made the South Shore their home. The Trellis Cafe, host of the Thursday night jam and Fri/Sat live music, is also a fantastic restaurant and boutique art gallery, featuring revolving displays of the work of local talents. And, for its 68th straight year, the Shore Club at Hubbards Beach delivers top-notch live dance floor entertainment that has earned its reputation as “Nova Scotia’s Last Great Dance Hall'. They also serve up fabulous lobster suppers, Wed-Sun, featuring locally caught fare, fresh salad bar and 'all you can eat' steamed mussels!
Halifax / Dartmouth: Halifax is THE destination in the Maritime Provinces for both colonial and maritime history.
Explore the 'Titanic' exhibits and maritime museums along the Halifax waterfront, and the 'Citadel Hill' fortification that protected our fair city for over 200 years, and remains one of the most popular spots to visit when in town. The view from there out over the city and towards the open ocean is breathtaking.
Halifax is the home of world-class entertainment and dining, including Casino Nova Scotia, Neptune Theatre and the largest collection of fine restaurants, lounges and traditional pubs in the Atlantic region. The waterfront boardwalk in 'old' Halifax is an amazing collection of centuries-old warehouses, chandleries and breweries converted into delightful shops. artisan studios and restaurants, and is the berth of several 'tall ships' that take passengers out into the harbour. A ticket to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic also gets you a tour of the CSS Acadia, a Canadian Hydrographic ship that remained powered by steam until her retirement in 1961. Don't worry the breweries are still here as well!
Stillwater Lake/ Tantallon - Of course the privacy of Stillwater Lake at your back doorstep beckons... calling you to your private, secluded wharf and dock for a swim in the clean, clear spring-fed fresh-water!
A pedal boat and life jackets are included with the rental, and a 'destination' landing at the other end of the lake brings you within a 4 minute walk of the shops!
NOTE: Special fall rates
Come see the changing colours, autumn is considered one of Nova Scotia's finest seasons... happy temperatures, sun, and cool evenings perfect for a fire in the secluded back yard by the lake.
John and I went to school together years ago and finally got together in 2008.
I have lived on the lake since I was six years old and he grew up in the small fishing village of Hubbards, not far away.
We both love the water and are often found in the canoe, small inflatable with engine or sailing!
I tend to be a hands on outdoorsy sort often puttering in the garden and John is a musician, playing mainly keyboards but making beautiful music with any instrument.
Both of us are fortunate enough to have our parents living near by as well as other close relatives.
Miriam Sager purchased this house in 2006
My folks acquired land here on Stillwater Lake years ago and we all still live here on the shores.
John and I had been long-haul trucking and found it a shame to have the house sitting here empty most of the time so we decided to rent it out during the summer months for others to enjoy! That was five years ago and now even though we retired from the trucking, we still want to share the lake with others! We leave in late spring and head just down the lake a bit to a wee one room cabin, off the grid, on an island. Here we stay 'til the last guests leave in the fall.
Because our home is owner occupied most of the year, you know you are getting more than most places have to offer and can be sure it is well taken care of!
The peace, tranquility and nature out every door and window are the finest aspects in my opinion (even tho' the house is fabulous)!
How lucky we were to find this place. It was perfect in every imaginable way. swam in the lake, canoed, heard loons and enjoyed beautiful lunched=s on the deck and dinners in the house. Your kitchen is better equipped than ours at home - unlike any prior rental experience of ours.
This place is ready for any size group.
You have worked hard to make this place very special and you have succeeded.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
What a find! We had such a lovely vacation here at Stillwater Lake. We were greeted by the owner, and then with some fresh baked muffins from her niece. How sweet. The house was beautiful,very well maintained and very comfortable. But we spent most of our time on the dock, swimming in the lake, pedal boating and canoeing. It was tranquil and quiet, just what we needed. There was even a fire pit to roast marshmallows.The house was very close to some local restaurants and the grocery store, and a short drive in to Halifax. Thank you Miriam and John, we hope to be back again soon!
Es waren für uns sehr schöne 3 Wochen Urlaub gewesen.Leider ging die Zeit zu schnell vor bei .Wir haben die ruhr genossen.Und die freundlichkeit der Gastgeberin.Egal wenn wir ein problem hatten sie war immer für uns da gewesen.Das Haus ist hervorragent eingerichtet.Es ist alles vor handen,und für Fam.mit Kinder ein traum Ort.Keine Straße in der nähe und zu Einkaufen ist es auch nur 5 Minuten entfernt.Es war unser erster Urlaub in Kanada und eins wissen wir wir kommen wieder.Denn in diesen Haus kann man richtig vom altag abschalten.Ich kann es nur jeden empfehlen der die ruhe mag .Wir waren schon in vielen Häusern gewesen,aber so ein schönes und vor allem saubers haus hatten wir noch nie.Wir sagen 1000 mal Dank und weiter so.
This was the nicest place we've ever stayed in for a vacation rental. The house is beautiful, clean, well-equipped - perfectly gracious and comfortable. The location is gorgeous at the peaceful end of the lake. We loved swimming, canoeing, and just spending time on the dock. Hiking trails filled with pine trees and crystal clear water beaches are nearby. We appreciated Miriam and John's hospitality and advice on the nearby sights in Hubbards and Halifax. This part of Nova Scotia is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
If you are looking for a place to stay, near Halifax, where you can " get away from it all" this is the spot.
From my first contact with the owner I had a very good feeling and after spending a week there my initial feeling was absolutely right.
The house is absolutely spectacular. We are a family of 5 (with teenagers) and with the size of the house we never felt like we were tripping over each other. The lake is great for swimming, boating etc but extremely quiet. In our week there we only saw one other boat!!
You are about 15 minutes from Halifax with local shopping available about a 5 minute drive away.
When we arrived there were blueberry muffins delivered....hot right out of the oven.
All in all it was an amazing week in the Halifax area.......thanks in large part to the the vacation property called Stillwaters End. Thanks Miriam and John for letting us share your beautiful home.
My husband and I, along with our two small boys had a wonderful stay at Stillwaters' End. The house was immaculate, spacious, and had everything we needed (internet, satellite TV, games, books, basic pantry items, etc!). The fresh blueberry muffins upon arrival was such a welcome touch, and my boys loved them!
We had a wonderful stay and discovered that there were many things to keep us busy, all just short drives away. We spent a few days downtown Halifax, did some shopping at Bayers Lake, took a longer trip to Liverpool and amazing beaches, visited Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. The shopping centre located a few minutes away was convenient for groceries, as well as some prime takeout restaurants!
We also spent a lot of time back at the house enjoying the peaceful backyard, relaxing on the dock (we never did venture out in the canoe with the two tots, but loved watching for water skiers!), and BBQing.
It was a fabulous vacation with great weather and an amazing place to stay!
We highly recommend Stillwater's End!
We had a great time staying at the house! It was quiet, clean, large, and extremely comfortable. We came just before the summer season but were still able to take advantage of the canoe and lake front beauty. I would defintiely recommend this house to anyone that's looking to get away from city living and enjoy a peaceful vacation. Also, it was extremely convenient to downtown Halifax as 4 of the guests were running in the Blue Nose Marathon and had no problem getting downtown on time.
'Stillwater's End' is located on the beautiful north end of Stillwater Lake. Very private and surrounded by forest, this lakefront vacation home is only 20 minutes to downtown Halifax, and within 45 minutes to UNESCO world heritage site Lunenburg. 10 minutes away is St Margaret's Bay and its beautiful beaches.
