  • Simply the best!

    "This place is a slice of paradise, a gem so beautiful, precious and rare. We are extremely lucky to have stumbled upon it from the other end of the globe! If we could get married again anywhere in the world we would still choose your surreal little spot and go through all the stress, difficulty and added expense of having a wedding far far away from where we are both based. It was so worth it! There wasn't a single guest at the wedding who didn't compliment us on our choice of venue and ask how we managed to find it. I am sure there are many young lads and ladies who attended our wedding already dreaming of having their big day at the same venue. In fact, our sweet photographer from Sambino's photography told us she would love to do the same! That says it all, doesn't it? Photographers recognise beauty best and she was beyond ecstatic when she first saw the place! The house itself was so homey and had just the right amount of space for the 10 of us, there were no squabbles over showers and toilet space. The beds were gloriously comfortable, we all got our beauty sleep. ;-) We even got our 83 year old Nana to play basketball with us (for the very first time), that's how relaxed and at home she was. The kitchen was incredible and had every gadget we could possibly want, we managed to cook two Indian hors d'oeuvres, two big pots of curry and rice, two massive roasts, spuds and vegetables and generous amounts of banana cake for the 70 odd guests at our wedding; all of the above with around 15 mini chefs involved in the process, need we say more? Now coming to our next favourite part, a part so special to everyone who experienced it (No prizes for guessing!). Thank you Paul, for that wonderful evening you shared with us and for the most incredibly delicious lobster dinner you cooked for us. You are a most hospitable and warm host and a fantastic chef. Those who had lobster for the first time, were at a loss for words (All that they could say was mmmm and yessummmm :-) ). The Haligonians themselves couldn't believe how good the lobster was! Enough said. Thank you again for your warmth and hospitality. Thank you for putting up with our music/noise so graciously. Thank you for rescuing us from our toilet paper crisis at 2 am during our wedding reception. Thank you for the most memorable lobster dinner. Thanks for giving us the most perfect wedding! Thanks for everything! Wishing you both and everyone else involved with the house the best, always!"

  • Really great spot.

    "Beautiful drive on the way there, it's a remote area with a store just before the last road in (Co-Op). Great place to relax with an excellent view. The bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable as well. Kitchen well equipped for all your cooking needs."

  • A Welcome Retreat

    "My wife and kids and I moved to Nova Scotia from British Columbia, and chose Shirley's home for a month while we searched for permanent housing in the Halifax area. Her home was always a very refreshing, peaceful and relaxing place to come back to everyday after our housing search. Our lovely host respected our privacy while also showing herself to be interested in us and our kids, and was very welcoming towards our family overall. She was very helpful with providing information regarding various details of the region, and even went out of her way to make some special and unique accommodations for us while we were staying in the suite. We were sorry to leave Shirley's place, and would happily return for another visit. We found Shirley herself to be very gracious and hospitable, and also quite thoughtful about humanity as a whole."

  • Amazing property, amazing owners!!

    "From the moment we arrived at this property, we fell in love with it. The grounds and view to the water are amazing. Kay came out to greet us upon our arrival and gave us a detailed tour of the property. It is every bit as lovely and comfortable as the photos portray it to be. We immediately felt at home and knew we would have a great vacation. Rod even had our state flag hanging from our upper deck, talk about attention to detail!!. Our view from the upper and lower decks was beautiful and gave us a great opportunity to see the deer out in the yard both in the morning and in the evening. We were able to do the Cabot Trail in 1 day, however, at least 2 is recommended. My husband caught several mackerel and a striped bass right from the beach, so needless to say, he was in his glory. We enjoyed a couple of evening campfires down by the beach and enjoyed the company of our hosts, they are lovely people. This was our first trip to Nova Scotia but we will definitely be back, would love to explore other regions of this diverse province. Thank you Rod and Kay for opening Uncle Bob's to guests, you truly made it a vacation to remember."
