Property description

The house was built around 1890 and its various rooms for reading, listening to music or watching DVDs /TV have been renovated recently to their original gemuetlichkeit. Enjoy preparing your food with the produce bought at the close-by farmers market and your meal in the large eating area off the kitchen. Mainfloor and 1. floor have their own bathroom and altogether 4 bedrooms (2 double, 2 single). The house and garden in its rural setting is the perfect basis for exploring the area. Within 25 km there is Bridgewater (the 'hub of the south shore') with its restaurants, shopping malls and museums, the world heritage town of Lunenburg with its harbour, art galleries and fishery musem, and several beautiful sand beaches and rocky coves along the coastline. Whether you like sun bathing, sea cayaking, bird or whale watching, you don't have to go far. And in the evening, while the kids are in bed upstairs you can have your last glas of wine with cards, music or making plans for the next day.

Car: Necessary

LaHave is located in popular Lunenburg county at the mouth of the LaHave river, the largest river in the province. Scenic drives along the coastline take you to Risser's Beach Provicial Park and Crescent Beach (both 6 km) or to the world heritage site Lunenburg (20 km). You may also choose a road through the extensive woods to Kejimkujik National Park (60 km). The drive on the 'scenic route' along the river on your way to shopping in Bridgewater (20 km)seems usually far too short. And if you don't want to drive, simply have your tea or play badminton in the garden or walk down to the the LaHave Bakery or the Fort Point Museum (both 5 min) with its picknick area and little sand beach. You can spend your time leasurely with reading or BBQ behind the house or actively with whale watching, kayaking, exploring the LaHave islands by sailboat or hiking along romantic footpaths; all within a radius of 20 km. Longer trips of appr.120 km e.g. to the capital Halifax or the Bay of Fundy (world's highest tidal range) or the MicMac first nation information center in Bear River open up an entirely 'new world'.

Other Activities: Sea cayaking, whale watching, swimming, hiking
