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!
