Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this place for 4 nights and we ABSOLUTELY loved it. It is beautiful inside and outside. Every morning you wake up to a beautiful view on the bay. Inside is full of culture, art, etc. Very clean. The house is fully equipped with whatever you may need to live there. Kitchen is complete for whoever interested to cook. Nice location in terms of accessibility to touristic areas around.

100% recommend.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described and was spotless and comfortable. It is centrally located so easy hours drive to Halifax, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove. The garden is immaculately maintained and a large deck overlooks the garden and the bay. The owner was extremely helpful and ensured that we had a very pleasant stay. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for peace and quiet.

Beautiful home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take a few moments to write about what a great visit we had staying at this gorgeous property in Hubbards, N.S. A few of my friends from high school get together once a year for a girls getaway. Although we usually stay at a place farther down the south shore, we decided to try a new location this year and were not disappointed. A truly beautiful home, even nicer than we expected. The place was spotless, and as we love to cook, the large kitchen worked well for us. The view,was really amazing. We went to the Hubbards market on Sat morning, walked part of the Appalachian trail,and even dropped into,Lola's, a truly unique gift shop. The owner was very nice and patiently answered all my emails. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. I know my friends were equally impressed and will do the same. Thank you!! G. Collins

We had an amazing vacation at this property and the Hubbards area. It was very well equipped with everything that was needed for our vacation. The views were amazing with wonderful sunrises and we spotted a whale in the bay from our front patio. It was a perfect vacation in everyway!
