Wonderful coastal retreat
We had a wonderful time at the Cruickshanks cottage in September. It was so nice to have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Everything in the cottage was very good quality including the dishes, appliances, TVs, furniture, etc. The location is incredible -- we couldn't tear ourselves away from the view of the bay and beach. We had a great time out on the massive deck and watched a seal come in and out of the bay for several days. Went for a swim a couple of times at the beach and so posh to just walk back to the cottage in flip-flops. We will be back!
Updated cottage in great location! We mostly stuck to 2 bedroom upstairs, but full suite in basement. Nicely decorated and well stocked with linens and kitchen necessities. We enjoyed our stay!
Glad you enjoyed the stay!! Welcome back anytime, take care and thanks :)
Fabulous Nova Scotia holiday
We had a fantastic time. The house is centrally located with a small
Beach across the road. How wonderful to go to sleep listening to the waves crash on shore. We were able to take in all sorts of sights; Peggy's Cove, Halifax Lunenberg, the Ovens, Mahone bay and Chester. Everything was so picturesque. The house had a fabulous deck and was beautifully decorated inside with all the things we needed. Spacious enough for the eight of us. We enjoyed the fire pit and made use of it most evenings making s'mores and roasting marshmallows. A fabulous time was had.
Thanks so much Jill, never tried a smores on the fire, absolutely will now!
Take care, Guy and Kathy
This is the second year we stayed at this piece of paradise. There is nothing better than falling asleep listening to the waves of the ocean which is just right across the street. It has all the comforts of home and more. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. I would return tomorrow if I could.

Hi Linda, You are always a pleasure!
I really enjoy listening to the waves in the evening, very soothing :) Hope to see you back soon!!
Great property, but we had a few issues
This is a beautiful home and an awesome location. Hubbards is a great little town, close to all kinds of recreational opportunities with a short drive. The property was well kept, and mostly new or like new in appearance and function. On-site washer/dryer is nice, and worked very well. Also, the internet was fast and reliable - great for keeping in touch with home and for business people. However, we did have some issues. The main one was a strong cigarette smoke odor as soon as we walked in the door. It was bad enough we almost turned around and looked for somewhere else to stay. Instead I called the owner, and while she was very nice and apologetic, her solution was to offer to bring over candles or air freshener. Covering up a terrible odor with less terrible odors is not really helping. The weather was nice so we opened literally every window while we decided what to do. I spoke to Cathy again and she offered a small refund for our inconvenience, so we decided it would be better to stay than try to find somewhere else and then try to get a full refund. So we did. Luckily the weather stayed great and we left the windows open day and night for pretty much our whole stay, so it was tolerable. Unfortunately, I never did get the refund I was promised, and we are now more than a month home from the trip, so I am not holding my breath. If not for the smell and then not getting the promised remedy, this property would easily get 5/5, and in spite of this, we had a wonderful vacation. Seafood, craft beer, wineries, more seafood, scenery, friendly people... Nova Scotia is a great place to vacation!
Thank you for your good reviews of our home and the area. We are very sorry for the smoking issue that was encountered and have taken action to have the house professionally cleaned. I had offered to send someone in to clean and a refund for the inconvenience, my suggestion that the windows be opened and air freshener used was to aid in the smell not just to cover it up. The refund has been provided but had been delayed, myself having sidetracked from it and not knowing that this site could provide in a different manner that I was using.
Of course, many apologizes to Rick, you both were wonderful and hope that you return.

Loved This Place
We stayed here from Aug. 30 to Sept. 7, 2016. We loved the location right across from the bay and just down the road from a wonderful little beach. Easy drive to Halifax and very near the major highway to all the sites. The house was great - very nice décor and wonderfully spacious. Loved sitting on the huge deck watching the water. The big kitchen table became a focal point for us. Very comfy living room and couches. Guy was staying in the unit below doing some work nearby - he was very friendly and helpful. The ice maker in the fridge wasn't working - after we called he brought over a big bag of ice and got it fixed right away. Only comment might be the master bed was firmer than I typically like. Otherwise, loved it!
Approximately 30 minutes to Halifax and Peggy's Cove. Close to Chester and many small beautiful towns. http://bit.ly/1RlxNKS
