CAPTAIN'S REST - A VACATION TREASURE

Captain's Rest - A Vacation Treasure
  • 5 of 5
We truly loved staying at the Captain's Rest! We were soaking in every bit of it. We loved the home, the yard, the reading rooms, and we especially enjoyed our gracious host, Gerhard who made sure that our every need was met and more!

It had been several years since we took our family to vacation in Nova Scotia. This time, my husband and I were escorting my brother and his wife on their first trip to the Atlantic Provinces. We wanted a very special place and we found it in Captain's Rest.

Our host was very accommodating in every regard, making a point to let us know that this was our special time and he wanted to make sure that we had a pleasant and leisurely stay.

The house is very spacious, yet charming at the same time. There was always a place to read or chat or play games. The backyard was private and peaceful, looking over the LaHave River. Crisp mornings listening to the birds and beautiful sunsets over the LaHave River were just a step outside our door!

Many mornings were spent walking to the LaHave Bakery or simply strolling along stopping in at different local artists' homes where they were selling their works.

We spent our afternoons at nearby Risser's beach or travelling to Lunenberg or Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay - so many places to see, so many things to do!

A perfect place to call home when you are away!

PERFECT END OF SUMMER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We took our 2 (almost 3 yr old) son to Captain's rest for a week at the end of August. Being from the area, I knew that although it's not on the beach, it's close to the most beautiful beaches in Nova Scotia. One of which you can drive and park on, another is a spectacular provincial park with interpretive centre, campgrounds, salt marsh board walk trail, canteen and covered picnic tables, brand new showers and washrooms, and yet a third large beach (if you know where it is) that you will not likely have to share with anyone. Captain's rest is also a 30 second drive from the historic LaHave River cable ferry that leads to Unesco site Lunenburg and lovely Mahone Bay. There is a winery in the area as well. Bridgewater is the commercial centre where you can stock up for your stay. Bridgewater is a scenic drive along the LaHave River, approximately 12kms.

I must admit that when we arrived the front facade seemed a bit 'rustic' but once inside we had spacious, renovated accommodations and were not disappointed. We really had a lovely time - the weather was spectacular, and our host Gerhard was very gracious. He lives on an adjacent (but not visible) property so it was nice to know that if anything was needed (it wasn't), he was close by, but he was also respectful of our privacy at all times.

We hope to return!

VACATION AT LAHAVE

  • 3 of 5
Our vacation at LaHave included celebration of of daughter's wedding ,so this home was a perfect base for most of the family to prepare for the event. Lots of room, a good kitchen, and a big back yard for the children to play. It is a short walk to the bakery and to the historic fort and beach. Great weather and the landlord was very helpful to have things organized for us when we arrived. Perfect for a family vacation, being close to great beaches.

SERENITY

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Captain's Rest this past July. We found the house to be typical Nova Scotia architecture, and quaint, spacious, and welcoming. The back yard was especially pleasant mornings to have coffee and evenings for cocktails. Sleeping at night was a treat, quiet as well as soothing from the breezes from the nearby Lehave river.
We found the location convenient for trips to Lunenburg, Bridgetown, and points south-especially the many beaches that are all relatively close by.
Many mornings were spent walking over to the Lehave bakery for coffee and muffins, and to meet the locals.
The owner of Captain's Rest, Gerhard, was friendly and attentive, and ready at the drop of a hat to make our stay more comfortable.

TRAUMHAFTER URLAUB

  • 5 of 5
Unser Urlaub im Haus Captain's Rest wahr einfach nur Traumhaft, der abschied ist uns noch nie so schwer gefallen. Die Gastgeber sind Super freundlich und Hilfsbereit. Wir waren 4 wochen im Haus Captains's Rest und haben von da aus soviele wunderschöne ecken von Nova Scotia entdeckt, Wie Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove,Yarmouth, Digby wo wir auch eine Whale whatching tour mitgemacht haben, Die sich sowas von Gelohnt hat Danke Gerhard für den tip. Überall gibt es was neues zu entdecken, Man kommt aus den staunen gar nicht mehr raus, Die tiere und die natur die man sieht, ein Traum. und wenn man mal keine lust auf autofahren hat, kan man sich die zeit im grossen garten vertreiben mit federbalspielen und Grillen. Wir hatten sehr viel glück mit dem wetter,fast jeden tag sonne und warm, kaum regen was optimal wahr für unsere ausflüge. Vielen lieben Dank Gerhard und Dagmar es wahr unser schönster urlaub von allen, und wir hoffen auf ein baldiges wiedersehen.
