We loved the little cottage and also the view. We just didn't have a long enough stay. Very pleased with Wendy', the owner, and we highly recommend it to anyone. It's a nice hideaway for a very quiet relaxing holiday.More

About the neighbourhood
Nestled in the heart of a small fishing community, this cottage offers spectacular views, that 'country life' feel and experience, and yet close enough to zip into the city for the faster paced nightlife. From the gorgeous sunrises to the evening mirrored sunsets over the water, the beauty of it all just takes your breath away! You don't need a license to catch Mackerel, Pollock, or Squid off the wharf here....just walk home and cook them up! A short 7 minute drive into town (Hubbards) will let you stock up on your daily provisions, or provide you with your choice of restaurants or entertainment. Hike for miles along our Rails to Trails, or sign up for tours (biking, kayaking, & ocean site seeing). Nearby Hubbards is home to one of the oldest original dance halls...The Shore Club....whi...
