Property description

Enjoy the Coastal Living lifestyle? Welcome to the ideal South Shore retreat,
Starfish Hill. Nestled along the shores of the LaHave River, this property boasts over 175ft of saltwater frontage. This beautiful river opens up to the Atlantic Ocean only minutes from the property. While other vacationers are sitting in fog on direct oceanfront, Starfish Hill is located just outside the fog bank allowing you to enjoy sunny days.

Located on a private lane of only seven residences, this quiet one-acre gem, a late 1940's cottage, was lovingly renovated in 2011. Two sets of french patio doors open onto the huge 750 sq. ft deck where you can savor fresh coffee and breakfast while enjoying the sparkling waters and boats sailing past. Boating or sailing in? The LaHave River Yacht Club, which is only a short quarter mile tender trip from our dock, offers deep water moorings, slips, fuel and youth Learn to Sail lessons during the summer.

Some of Nova Scotia’s most visited beaches are a short drive. Crescent Beach, Risser's Beach, with it’s spectacular boardwalk, Green Bay and the local favorite McLeod's Canteen are not to miss. The Petite Riviere winery is a wonderful visit as well. Don’t miss the delicious baked goods, breakfast and lunches from the famed LaHave Bakery (only 2 minutes away, the delectable scent of this bakery will keep you longing for years, trust me!)

Lunenburg and Mahone Bay are within 20 minutes. Hop on the LaHave River Ferry only 2 minutes from the cottage, to visit these historic towns. Bridgewater, 12 minute drive, offering a mall, grocery stores, hospital, museums, restaurants and all the amenities of a busy town. Halifax 75 minutes, Stanfield International airport 90 minutes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Born & raised in Nova Scotia but now living in the US, my heart is always in NS. Once we started a family we wanted our children experience this part of the world and all it's people have to offer. It's a perfect location, close to family and not too far from the city. We feel so fortunate to have been able to find such a property, as it is rare to have one come available in the area. We return every summer to Starfish Hill (which the children named after collecting starfish off the beach year after year) and count the days until we can return. NS has been considered a secret getaway for many of North America’s prominent families who have summered here for decades and for good reason. People here truly are salt of the earth and it’s beautiful natural surroundings and majestic ocean is spectacular. We invite you to share this wonderful place and make your own lasting family memories here. Shawna & Stan
