“Beautiful House and Location”
Four of us spent a few days at Brad's lovely home while we explored the area. Liked it so much we didn't want to move on for the rest of our tour. Just perfect for our purpose. Highly recommend the Trellis Cafe for evening meals but fully equipped too for home cooking. Found the coffee maker a little tricky but sussed it out in the end! Fabulous views.
“Beautiful Hubbards Getaway”
We chose this location because it was just 1 hr and 10 minutes away - so not a lot of travel time for us. Hubbards is a beautiful location with many things to offer in the spring, summer and early fall. This time of year - many things have closed but it was perfect for us - we were looking for a weekend getaway to unwind. We prepared yummy meals in the well stocked kitchen; played card games at the games table; went for a walk from the Shore Club down to the Hubbards Cove Beach; enjoyed a drive along the old road down to East Chester just to enjoy the scenery. The accommodations are perfect and spacious. Bed comfortable, bathrooms well stocked, etc. I would certainly recommend this place to our friends and family.
“Beautiful Views, Comortable and Relaxing Home”
As you drive into the beautifully graveled driveway and see the ocean at the side of the house you just know that this will be a relaxing vacation. When you enter the house you are invited in by a well equipped kitchen that leads into a beautiful family/living room. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a double bed and a three piece bathroom. Upstairs the master bedroom is the full width of the house with a picture window looking out into St. Margaret's Bay. Upstairs at the back of the house is a lovely bedroom with two double beds. As our friends had traveled from the UK we gave the upstairs bedrooms to them and took the down stairs ourselves. Back down on the ground floor the living room leads out onto a large deck which is fantastic for bbq's and just relaxing. This in turn leads to a large grassy area which in turn leads to a small private beach. The area around the house has many services and features and I can sincerely recommend it to anybody that wants a relaxing vacation within easy traveling distance of Halifax and the South Shore. All in all an excellent location and great value for money.
“So Wonderful! Just Exactly the Beauty, Peace and Solitude We Needed!”
A Hummingbird greeted us on our first day. Loons, Kingfishers, and Great Blue Herons fished in Hubbards Cove as we delighted in watching them from our porch. The soothing sound of the water lapping at the shore lulled us to sleep in the amazingly comfortable beds. We had lobster, haddock, scallop and oysters from Shatford's Lobster Pound almost every night. The Hubbards Farmer's Market is so sweet - there is live, local music, delicious breakfast foods, local lovely crafts, baked goods, and just picked fruits and vegetables. Brad and his dear mother Vida took great care of us! Their beach house provides everything you need and is designed to welcome you beyond your expectations.
“Comfortable Home and Beautiful View”
Our family of six spent a week in this home in early October. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck, canoeing, fishing, relaxing in the hammock and just taking in the beautiful view. We took day trips to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenberg and Halifax. The Saturday Farmer's Market, a small grocery store and drugstore was only a short walk from the house. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the utensils and cookware we needed to prepare meals. There was even a large pot that we used to cook lobster one night. We would have liked to have a larger coffee pot, as the one available only made a few cups at a time. There were several games, books, magazines and a deck of cards to keep us entertained. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer on hand since we had packed light for the trip. We would have liked to have wireless Internet access, but the Internet stick for our laptop worked well. Overall, it was a comfortable, cozy home to stay for our first visit to Nova Scotia.
Response from the owner Hi Michelle & Family, Thanks for taking the time to write a review and staying with us in Hubbards. Great feedback on the coffee maker and I have added a much larger machine that will brew 10 cups. In addition I have added wireless Internet and will continue to provide an Internet stick. Take care and thanks again for the feedback!
“Awesome Home and Views”
My wife and I spent a week here with another couple. What a great home! Views were fantastic, especially from the upstairs master bedroom and living room. It was very nice to have fresh flowers and wine waiting for our arrival. Brad, sorry we couldn't meet in person, due to both of our schedules, but thank you for your telephone calls, texts and local information. Thank you for telling us about Shatford's Lobster Pound. We became very good friends and they are very accommodating. The Trellis Café was great, even Sheils's Fish and Chips. (Shiela's is the mobile truck kitchen parked across the street from Trellis Café.) We have stayed in many vacation rentals, but never like this one! Very clean, well equipped and lots of room. The next trip to NS, we will definitely return.
“A Memorable Family Vacation”
This family of five (with 3 girls - ages 12, 16, and 18) had such a memorable and fantastic stay in the absolutely beautiful oceanfront home in Hubbard's. Brad is an extremely organized and gracious host (really touched by the flowers and wine that greeted us on the counter as we arrived late from a long day of travelling/flying) with detailed instructions and followup to ensure all our questions were met and answered. The home is a perfect stay for any traveller looking to having beautiful views from their backyard and very warm and inviting to stay inside as well. We enjoyed games night every evening and enjoyed immensely the use of the kayaks and canoe each morning. The bedrooms are large and very tasteful with interesting decor to look at as well (enjoyed the local art!). Absolutely loved the view from the master bedroom overlooking the ocean. Thank you so much for such a memorable family vacation - we rate it with 10 thumbs up without a doubt!!
“Great Home, Great Host”
My wife and I just spent a week here and we loved it! The home is beautiful and stocked with everything you need. The owner is a great host and communicates thoroughly and professionally with you. The view is amazing. Hearing the ocean outside our bedroom window was fantastic. There is plenty of room for a family to stay for an extended stay. The Hubbards area is wonderful. There is a great restaurant just up the road, another awesome lobster restaurant on the other side of the cove, and even a great little beach to spend the day at. I could say more, but I'll end by saying this is a place we want to return to.
“Thanks Giving weekend in Hubbards”
We spent three wonderful days around Thanks Giving weekend. The host was delightful and very accomodating. The house was tastefully furnished and decorated with local art and the kitchen was well equipped even for roasting a large turkey. The view from the master bedroom is gorgeous. The wood burning stove was a real bonus in the evening, keeping us cosy while we watched a family movie. We had really good luck with the weather even late in the fall. The sun was warm and the kayaks and canoes still inviting so our teens were out on the water both days. I would gladly rent this house again any time of the year.
“Peaceful and comfortable retreat with stunning ocean view”
We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful ocean side house. It provided a peaceful haven to return to each night after touring around scenic Nova Scotia. With the great water views and fully stocked house, we relaxed each evening and morning enjoying the views with wine and coffee. The house is well equipped to satisfy both families and couples for any style vacation. We found Hubbards to be a charming spot with great services and restaurants within easy walking distance. It is an easy drive to most of the scenic spots in Nova Scotia. Would definitely return.
