Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Born and raised in Halifax, our large and rambunctious family spent every summer at our cottage in nearby Southwest Cove. Dad gave all 10 kids a couple acres and we built homes here.(So I can say I have spent all my tender 59 years in the area) When my husband, Kelly first talked about purchasing our rental property I thought he had lost his mind but slowly he convinced me that it was a good investment and eventually I came around. And, am I glad I did because it has been his' project' for the last 5 years ( and kept him out of my hair) From 1985 -2006 I owned and operated a small restaurant business in Hubbards. It started out as a bakery/bulk food (healthy/hippy) and morphed into a happening cafe with live music every Friday night.( I am a musician - alto saxophone, piano etc) I currently play in a R&B band, and operate the rental of this accomodation during the summer. We recently bought a trawler which is parked at the dock and usually you'll see Kelly taking care of it (sitting and having a beer on the back deck).We love this area! It is peaceful, not too far from the 'rest of the world' and of course we are surrounded by friends and family that you will find very interesting to meet if you so desire.One of my brothers is an actor(aka Jim Leahy, park superintendent from Trailer Park Boys) He always cruises by Northwest Cove in his boat the Emerald Princess but alas a late fall storm drove it onto the rocks so he might just be incognito in his small aluminum runabout.When the property is not rented we often have family gatherings here. We have had two wedding parties with 150+ attending.I have five beautiful grandchildren whom have spent many hours at this property while we garden, boat or just hang out on the large deck which is gated and safe for young children.This property is an eight minute walk from my lakefront home and has been a great project for us as it feels like we really do have the best of both worlds.

Why the Owner Chose Hubbards:
the most photographed view in Lunenburg County,this property is very close to home and absolutely wonderful to visit.The sounds of the fishing boats and gulls swirling in the air, the quiet evenings and spaciousness of the interior were major motivators in the purchasing of this property. At first it seemed daunting. Originally the site of a small 'fishstore'(that is a hut on the water that fishermen stored nets and made bouys/floats etc during the cold winter days) it was added on to over the years and used as a small fishplant before our acquisition The large apartment was built before we purchased and we added the second apartment a year later. We recognize that it is difficult for large groups to find accommodations suitable for families, etc and thought that this would be a good place for that. It is large and therefore everyone can find a space of their own. Although...........most people park in the sunroom and spend hours looking out at the cove.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A lot of travellers like a home base to return to after their day away. This is that place.Just about everything to see in Southshore NS is within 45 min.travel and there is nothing more scenic than our view.You can stroll over to the Gov't dock and watch the fishermen bring in their catch or just ask our neighbors of the availability for fresh fish for supper. We have a lobster pot and boiler for lobster boils and a bar b que for hanging on the deck. There is a beautiful beach 4 miles away that is super for children and also a picnic beach just a mile away in Southwest Cove. We have good friends who run an adventure tourism business and they will bring kayaks to our dock if you wish to rent. There is a yoga loft 2 miles away with drop in classes nearly every day. There is a great little market Sat mornings in Hubbards and a great cafe 'The Trellis' where you can relax and eat some good food.Golf at Chester, a quick 30 min. drive offers some of the most spectacular ocean scenery you have ever seen at a golf course and there is a couple pubs and shops there as well.As we live so close by we are always ready to take care of our guest's requests. We have life jackets for the kids safety on the docks and if you can brave the temperatures can swim right off the dock.I'd never want to leave if I was vacationing here. It truly is a place to unwind and relax.
