About Matthias MacLellan
I am a carpenter and a young man from the area, I rebuilt this house with help from my father in 2012. I have been around the world and the rugged, pristine coastline of Nova Scotias South Shore is a truly special place. Summer rentals allow me to pay the mortgage and I am happy to share my slice of paradise.
Matthias MacLellan purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Matthias MacLellan chose Hubbards
I choose to buy this property because of the spectacular location and having the skillset and energy to turn it into something beautiful. I am a wooden boat owner and sailing enthusiast and hope to still be in this house as an old man.

roomy, great view
lots of room, great view
The property was exactly what we hoped for cosy and with a sea view. There were plenty of amenities nearby and places of interest. Halifax was an unexpected treat too. Although the good weather helped we would certainly visit again and stay in the same property.
Peaceful shoreline-perfect cottage getaway
Our family had a great stay, We enjoyed the cottage and the view. Morning coffee on the deck, bird watching, quiet evenings and star gazing.
Great proximity to run into the city and all the quaint towns and beauty of the South shore. The cottage was clean and had a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed using the canoe and my boys had good luck fishing at the public wharf in fox point about a kilometer down the road.
Matt was a great host, attentive and accomodating.

Great Cottage Weekend!
We have a lovely girls weekend at this spot! It was close to the beach and spots we wanted to see. It had all the amenities for a fantastic getaway.
Good location to Lunenburg and Halifax
It's a good location- easy drive to Lunenburg a must see and Halifax which we loved. No wifi or cable networks. Enjoyed watching the tide changes.
Hi there, I am so sorry you were unable to connect to the wifi. I included network information with your access instructions. I have had high speed internet at the cottage for 5 years. I am glad you enjoyed the area! Best wishes.
This is a beautiful location! It was so easy to explore the south shore and still relax in comfort when we returned. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening drinks on the deck watching the wildlife and sailboats. Very peaceful
