Hubbards is a picturesque seaside village, a half hour drive from Halifax.We are located down a long private lane, but there is easy access to the rest of the village. There is a mall with a bank, grocery store, laundromat and liquor store. There are several places to rent videos. There is a post office and a library. We now have a big new Pharmasave in the community. There are a few restaurants. One we like a great deal is the Trellis Cafe, just a five minute walk from here. It features delicious food and a very welcoming atmosphere, with live entertainment and regular kitchen party/jam sessions in which everyone is welcome to participate.

You can do lots of walking beside the ocean and there are two trails nearby, the Aspotogan trail and the St. Margaret’s Bay trail, where you can walk, bike, or cross country ski in the winter time.

Have you ever thought how idyllic it might be to enjoy a quiet and peaceful Christmas or New Year’s Eve beside the sea? Maybe you want to have a change of scene over the March Break or the Easter holidays but you don't want to go south. As the year unfolds our price for special holidays will be the same as it is the rest of the time which is:
