About Matthias MacLellan

I am a carpenter and a young man from the area, I rebuilt this house with help from my father in 2012. I have been around the world and the rugged, pristine coastline of Nova Scotias south shore is a truly special place. Summer rentals allow me to pay the mortgage and I am happy to share my slice of paradise.

Matthias MacLellan purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Matthias MacLellan chose Hubbards

I choose to buy this property because of the spectacular location and having the skillset and energy to turn it into something beautiful. I am a wooden boat owner and sailing enthusiast and hope to still be in this house as an old man.

Happy in Hubbards

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the cottage for the month of August 2014. It is a very nice cottage in a truly wonderful location. It is clean and well maintained. The deck is the best part. I spent hours watching the boats, the birds, and the tide coming in and out. It is a work in progress and I know Matthias will make a great cottage outstanding. He was the best owner ever. He responded to my every need in a timely way. The very steep stairs to the loft would be difficult for many, but with two bedrooms on the main floor, I didn't need the upper level. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

A dream!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at Fox Point retreat. The cottage itself is actually a house, it was very clean and cozy and right on the water, with a gorgeous view of sailboats passing by. It easily accommodated my family of five and was a very convenient location for my stay in Nova Scotia. I would recommend it to anyone!
