Discover the South Shore of Nova Scotia this summer! You'll search far and wide to find a more magical location than this very private oceanfront 4 bedroom, 3 bath summer house. 'Seabourne' is tucked at the end of a forested country lane on the Aspotogan Peninsula on the highly desirable South Shore of Nova Scotia, yet it offers easy access to the top attractions in Nova Scotia, including Halifax, Peggys Cove, Chester and Lunenburg.. 'Seabourne' sleeps 6-8, and is fully and attractively furnished, complete with dishes and linens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we walked into Seabourne we were taken away by this cottage and the breathtaking, amazing view of the ocean. The time spent here over the pat two weeks is something we will cherish forever. We loved visiting the surrounding towns, eating seafood, and watching lobster fishermen in front of the house.

Our family of four had a great stay at Seabourne. Plenty of space for the kids and company to roam on rainy days. The view from anywhere in the cottage and the grounds is stunning. Highly recommend for a small family!

Beautiful, peaceful waterfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults really enjoyed our reunion at Seaboure cottage. So peaceful with two beautiful decks and a dock too. A lovely location only about a 20 minute drive from Hubbards with a grocery store, liquor store, etc. All the amenities we neede were provided including a big bar-b-que. Sally was a pleasure to deal with.

One of the bedrooms with two twin beds, would probably be better suited to children as the only access was through the huge, beautiful second floor bedroom, which even had a bar fridge in it! However there was a sofabed in the main living room, as well as a second common area on the main floor and another common area on the second floor. A great spot for a group.

We really hope we have another opportunity to stay at this beautiful home.

Enchanting escape

  • 5 of 5

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!

Romantic, breath-taking property right on the ocea

  • 5 of 5

Seabourne is an astonishing property -- it's really private and sits fairly high on a bluff overlooking a cove of the Atlantic. We fell asleep listening to the waves lapping against the rocks. From the upstairs master bedroom balcony, we watched little lobster boats chugging into our cove several mornings and local lobstermen collecting their catch. The house is very clean and well-maintained and comfortably furnished. Although the kitchen is not fancy, the appliances work just fine and the kitchen is well-stocked (it even had a lobster pot and a nice coffemaker!) There is a huge veranda on the main level overlooking the water with a good-size grill, Adirondack chairs, and a table and chairs. Every day of our stay -- sometimes every hour -- the weather was different. The morning might start out with a thick fog over the water -- and then the sun would break through and the change was amazing. This is a great place for a family to visit -- lots of bedrooms and pullout sofas and three full bathrooms. Plus, there's a lot to do nearby and Sally, the property manager, was helpful with suggestions. The drive along St. Margaret's Bay to Chester is beautiful. Chester has plenty of shops, a good bakery and restaurants that serve fresh seafood and other local fare. Halifax is a great place to tour museums or shop and less than an hour away. One rainy afternoon, we just watched movies on the VCR at the house. Make sure to allow some extra time to get to the airport -- especially if it's foggy and you have an early flight. I would definitely recommend this property to families or couples. It's a great place to get to know the South Shore of Nova Scotia.

Spectacularly located overlooking a beautiful, rose-covered cove of St. Margaret's Bay, 'Seabourne' will make you feel as if you've arrived in an exceptionally private, wondrously natural oceanfront park. Despite its privacy, 'Seabourne' is conveniently located near a host of delightful diversions for the vacationer. It would take weeks to see every wonderful sight on the South Shore; however, you'll certainly want to visit Nova Scotia's museum-studded maritime capital city, Halifax; the charming yachting town of Chester; and UNESCO World Heritage Town Lunenburg, home port of the tall ship Bluenose II. All are within an hour's drive of 'Seabourne.' (Charming Chester is just a 20 minute drive around the beautiful Aspotogan Peninsula.) Whether your interest is sailing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, bicycling, museums, or exploring delightful new restaurants and antique shops, you'll find it on the South Shore. Assuming, of course, that you can tear yourself away from 'Seabourne.'
