We hated to leave
I reviewed this property before but it looks like my iPad ate it. So to say again, this place is great. Looks exactly like the photos with amazing views of St.Margaret's bay. The cottage is well cared for and has 2 bedrooms . The master has a queen bed and the second BR has a double. The kitchen has all the utensils that you need for a cottage stay. The water is fine for drinking and cooking as it comes from the tap. No off tastes at all. The bathroom is small but adequate enough. There is a living room with TV and a large back deck with a big BBQ and lounge chairs with cushions. And the view of the water from there is grand. The property itself is quite large so kids would have lots of room to run and play. The lawn slopes down to the shore and at the end there is a gravel pad with 4 more lawn chairs and a fire pit. Really pleasant to sit there in the evening to see the water and lights from the opposite shore sitting near a cheery fire with a brew or a glass of wine. Our hosts made us feel welcome and came with a change of bedding and towels midway in our stay. They were also very helpful about letting us know about things we might want to see and do in the area. There is a seafood shop on the road into Hubbards where they have a lobster pound and fresh fish and shell fish. Our hosts provided a large pot and an adaptable heater for the BBQ that allowed us to cook lobsters. One lesson learned....don't buy the largest size lobster. The shell is too thick. On Saturday in Hubbards we had fun shopping at the farmer's market and we tried a couple of the local restaurants. The food was great and at one place, on Friday evenings after supper, they had a band come play in the dining room and there was room to dance too. Even though there is no beach at this property, there are several nice sand beaches close by. The largest one is Bayswater beach which is on the same road as the cottage. Travelling there we passed through a couple of really neat fishing villages. There are also beaches east of Hubbards along Hwy 3. We feel that we received good value for the rental cost and would strongly consider staying here again for the hospitality, the view and the beautiful locality.
