Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Situated in picturesque Hubbards, a quiet gem of Nova Scotia’s famed South Shore, the Shore House is a wonderful base for your holiday. The Shore House has a spectacular oceanfront setting directly on Hubbards Cove, where you can watch the fishing boats and sailboats as they come and go. The light-filled house is fully renovated and decorated in a clean, contemporary style.

On the main floor are a well-equipped kitchen, large bright dining area, and a large living room whose expansive windows face directly on the ocean. Off the living room is a deck with barbeque, perfect for outdoor meals. The two bedrooms are upstairs. Fronting the house is a large lawn, perfect for Frisbee, badminton, bocce, or just taking in the wonderful views.

Located on St. Margaret’s Bay just a 40-minute drive from the vibrant city of Halifax, Hubbards is ideally situated for visiting some of Nova Scotia’s highlights. The charming seaside towns of Chester and Mahone Bay are just minutes away by car, and the historic town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an easy and highly rewarding day trip. A handful of the province’s best beaches are on your doorstep, including Queensland and Bayswater Beaches.

Other day trip options abound, including the famous village of Peggy’s Cove, the scenic Annapolis Valley, and the always exciting city of Halifax. The village of Hubbards itself features hiking along the Aspotogan Trail, some fine restaurants, a farmer’s market on summer weekends, and lobster suppers at the Shore Club, Nova Scotia’s last dance hall, where Saturdays still mean live music and dancing.

Let the Shore House be your base for exploring this marvelous part of Nova Scotia.

Wonderful winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My nephew and I stayed Dec. 7-19 to visit family in Black Point NS. What a wonderful house! Cozy and comfortable and warm considering it was winter! The views of the water from the living room are gorgeous. We watched a lobster boat every day! The sofas are incredibly comfortable and there was enough space for when my niece's 2 kids came over. We cooked quite a few meals there and had everything we needed. And the washer/dryer was a bonus with kids--who played in the snow a couple times while we were there! Thanks Chris for such a welcoming home away from home!

Recently remodeled house with a view of the water.

  • 4 of 5

We chose the house due to location and amenities. We liked being near the water and it was very well maintained and clean. We traveled during the day, but spent our evenings relaxing at the house. Beds were pretty hard and furniture pretty soft, but we had a great time and enjoyed the location.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home after spending a week at this cottage. It is a great location for exploring the south shore of Nova Scotia. We had amazing weather while here so we also visited many local beaches. The shore club for a lobster dinner is a must! Overall the cottage was exactly as advertised clean,comfortable with an amazing view over hubbards cove.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 days, the house was perfect for 4 people, cozy, nice deck to soak in afternoon sun, view on the water. The neighbors were also extremely friendly and helpful, then even lent us the tools required to clean out our lobsters purchased from the fish market less then 5 minutes away. All in all a great place, and a great vacation.
