Rose Bay cottage description


Combining Internationally acclaimed architect and owner, Brian MacKay-Lyons vision of ocean, land and contemporary form, these four (4) innovative cottages embrace the dramatic beauty overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and LaHave Islands.

Nestled on the cliffs of Nova Scotia's South Shore, the Shobac Cottages provide the ultimate getaway for those seeking a luxurious retreat, or a relaxing vacation.

Located only 15 minutes from Lunenburg (UNESCO World Heritage Town) and a 1.5 hour drive from Halifax International Airport.

The Back Shore is one of the most spectacular, unspoiled sites in Nova Scotia. This very secluded 30-acre location at Moshers Beach is cradled by surrounding pastoral hills, with extensive walking trails, access and ocean views to Gaff Point Nature Trust and Hirtles Beach. Built on what was once the 400-year old ruins of an abandoned village, this environmentally sensitive enclave focuses on the undisturbed beauty of the South Shore.

Designed for honeymoon couples or a family of four or five, each of the oceanfront cottages offer a rustic elegance with style, comfort and unparalleled views.

As with all the details, the craftsmanship is superb from the floors to the cathedral ceilings. Built-in cabinetry curves and bends around 50-feet of 7-foot tall windows, custom tile and maple floors. Each cottage is approximately 800 + sq.ft. with two (2) private decks, wood stove, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living bay, two private bedrooms and luxurious bath.

Individual or multiple cottages can be rented on a weekly basis. The studio and the historic octagonal barn can be rented for events and are ideal for art workshops, weddings, equestrian vacations, family reunions or corporate retreats. The entire site can also be rented offering the solitude of a "lost village at the end of the earth".
