Property description

Mainsail Cottage is a charming well-appointed two level cottage situated right on the shore of Hubbards Cove; the ocean is less than thirty feet from the door. This is a safe place to swim with no dangerous currents or sudden drop offs. The view is breath-taking; you look straight out to sea as well up into Hubbards Cove. The grounds are beautiful, enhanced by the color of many mini gardens, flowering shrubs and fruit trees. Our rental is the entire first level, which is the ground floor. My husband Donnie and I live above. Our guests have two private side entrances. The beach in front of Mainsail Cottage is only for our own personal use and that of our guests. Donnie and I enter our own living area from the rear of the house and he and I sit outside on a back deck so that our paying guests can have privacy on the side and front lawns. This is a fully winterized one bedroom, non smoking, self-catering cottage that can sleep five easily. It has a queen-size bed, a double futon with a privacy curtain in the living area, and a single cot that can be set up if required. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area is very spacious with lots of comfortable seating, a dining table that can accommodate six people, and an electric fireplace. It is bright and airy, with four windows, two of which measure almost four feet by five to take advantage of the wonderful view up the cove and straight out to sea. This is a quiet and tranquil place in which to relax. Mainsail Cottage has an ample store of movies, books and games. WiFi broadband is included in the rental fee. We are situated centrally within the village of Hubbards so that it is an easy walk to the mall, to the access for the Rails to Trails, the Pharmasave, the Farmer’s Market, the Trellis Café, the post office and the library. At the same time, as we are located at the end of a long private lane, we are removed from the bustle and noise of the traffic in this busy seaside community. We think we have the best of both worlds here!This is a delightful spot for a pleasant , private and peaceful holiday.

There is a lot of wild life to enjoy. We are off the beaten track, therefore our property is very quiet and private . It is close to many other south shore attractions: 50 minutes from the airport, 35 minutes to Halifax, just over an hour to the Martock ski slope and the Annapolis valley. The local 'Rails to Trails' provide a venue to cross country ski or snow shoe, bike or walk. Our property is absolutely beautiful in the winter. It would be a lovely place to spend a romantic Christmas. It's an ideal spot to rest and relax, study, write or work in a quiet and beautiful setting. Sorry we can't accommodate pets.
