Hubbards bungalow description

Located at the end of a private lane off the main highway in Hubbards Cove, 'Bowsprit' Bungalow home is an ideal vacation destination. It is half way between Halifax and Lunenburg so it is a perfect 'home base' for exploring the many picturesque attractions that are just a drive away. Or just relax on site and sit out on either patio (west or south) or on the deck out front at the water's edge and watch the boat traffic in and out of the cove or the selection of wild life (overly-friendly seagulls and ducks, and the odd osprey and heron). The large grassy property includes a wharf launch and a private beach area for (invigorating) swimming. The view of the water is peaceful and ever-changing.

The home itself is completely winterized so it is also a great getaway during the colder months. The open area kitchen overlooks the large living room and separate dining area with panoramic west and south ocean views. The den has a 32 inch flat screen TV and a DVD and VHS player.


The stereo in the living room plays the radio and CDs, and Wi-Fi internet is available so you can stay in touch on your lap top from any part of the home. It is a great spot to rest in and relax or to write, study or work in a quiet and beautiful setting by the sea. This is not the place for loud parties or excessive noise. Sorry we are not able to accommodate smoking indoors--or pets (including the very small and well-behaved ones). A washer and dryer are available for use in the laundry room.
