About Bev Bennett

Chuck is a retired engineer from Olands Brewery and I (Bev) am a retired Federal Parole Officer. In 2001, prior to retiring, we bought our beautiful 2 1/2 acre property on the shores of St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia. We commenced building our guesthouse and home in 2005. The two buildings are joined by a deck and have welcomed many family members and friends over the past ten years. Last summer we decided to share our guesthouse with other travelers and visitors on VRBO. We love to travel ourselves and have backpacked in many countries throughout the world and continue to do so. We love meeting new people and hearing about their experiences.

Why Bev Bennett chose Hubbards

We were looking for a secluded location on the beautiful south shores of Nova Scotia to rest and relax, as well as, take in the local activities and sites, and this property offered all of the above and more, plus a wonderful local community of new and long time residents.

What makes this apartment unique

The South Shore of Nova Scotia, home to the world famous Bluenose Schooner, is breathtakingly beautiful with its small coves, fishing villages and vast sandy beaches. The area has many quaint shops and interesting sites, including Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and the world UNESCO heritage town of Lunenburg. Kayaking, golfing and cycling are popular activities. Freewheeling Adventures is located 5 minutes from our location and has bicycles and kayaks for rent. The guesthouse is located in a private area of over 300 acres with 4 kilometers of winding roads and trails for walking, as well as, several kilometers of rocky shoreline for hiking. There is also a secluded lake that offers excellent swimming.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The views from this guesthouse were post card perfect. Bev and Chuck are incredible hosts making us feel right at home. They provided everything we'd need, even pulled out their ocean kayak allowing for fantastic views of a nearby fishing village. They also offered great suggestions for activities in the area, which far exceeded our expectations.

We had the most wonderful time staying in this beautiful home in October. We imagined we would spend time touring around Nova Scotia but once we arrived in the house we just stayed close by. We felt so welcome and comfortable. The peninsula is stunning. Thank you so much Bev and Chuck for the boat trip and the loan of the canoes, for the warm welcome, for the peace and lovely company, for the views, for the freedom and for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

Very nice and relaxing. Bev and Chuck are great hosts. Private lake and our own private Peggys cove were the best.
