“A Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Aug. 25/13 - We left the cottage 1.5 days early of a 1wk. vacation. Our 2 bedroom cottage had no screen door and the glass panel on the steel door had no screen having to leave the door open for fresh air. In each of the bedrooms, sleeping five people (2 children) there were no dressers, only desks! The beds were not overly comfortable and mattresses should be replaced! The freezer dripped water unto the food on the lower shelves of the fridge. Mid week we reported the "on" button in the jet tub wasn't working - we heard from no one! The facility owned a dock across the street but it was not suitable for swimming. There are beautiful beaches within 5-10 min. drive! The property is within 30 min. of Halifax. We would not recommend this property!

Room Tip: If possible, visit the property before booking.

Thanks for your observations, the issues described have been taken into consideration, and where we can, we will be making changes. Some things we have no control over, people do swim off our dock, however it is not always a good spot so we put in the inground heated pool to compensate. The style of dresser is the preferred as it provides drawers for clothing as well as a desk for personal computers etc. We welcome all comments and invite our guests to contact us directly in addition to posting on Trip Advisor.

This was such a great start to our family vacation. The cottages are small and cute with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The pool is excellent for the kids there is also a small play structure towards the back of the property. The location is prime, Queensland beach is only a 5 minute drive, close to a few small shops and grocery stores. The people who run this place are SUPER friendly and want you to enjoy your stay add much as possible. Don't need to say much more then we will recommend this lovely spot to others and also return as guests in the future.

Room Tip: The cabins are where is at.

An unexpected twist of fate found us needing a "home" for a month (february-at that!!)---we stumbled upon this gem and must have been guided there because it turned out to be the perfect spot. Nestled in a wooded area, our 2 bedroom cottage could NOT have been more cozy and comfy. Awesome beds-great sleeps!! It had everything we needed to make it homey and Chad and jessica could not have been more accomodating and respectful of our privacy. Dog walks to the ocean became part of the routine, and it was fun discovering the town of Hubbards---great folks!! We're coming back for sure

In September 2012 we were married in Hubbards at the near by Community Barn. We, along with our wedding party, family and friends stayed here for the night of the rehersal party and the wedding and it was fantastic. We had the rehersal party on site and it was the perfect way to bring everyone together before the big day. On the day of the wedding the grounds at the cottages were perfect for doing some photos and the cottages made getting ready a breeze. The area around Hubbards is a wonderful setting for a wedding and they are perfectly located so that everyone can enjoy themselves and not have to worry about travelling home afterwards. Staying here really was an important part of our wedding day and contributed to the very positive experience that it was.

September 2012, we held our wedding and reception there. All of our Friends and family stayed in the cottages and main house. It was the perfect day, Peter and the staff did everything the could to make things as easy as possible. The cottages are homey and comfortable, which is exactly the style we were looking for. Thanks for everything!! Denise and Steve - Toronto

Room Tip: If you are more than 2 people, get a two bedroom for sure

We loved the beauty of the area and the fact that you allowed our three Keeshond dogs (our kidz) to stay with you as well. It was a nice place to stay in between visits with our local friends. I would highly recommend updating your beds, very lumpy, and saggy. Not as restful as we'd had hoped for but it was a warm, dry place to stay. We have been coming to Nova Scotia for the past 12 years, our 2 most favorite places are Irwin Chalets in Truro and Bouldercove in Shelburne, both have more modern facilities (bedding, appliances) have gorgeous grounds and are a bit more affordable. Since it was hard to find a place near Hackett's Cove and near our very best friends (family) that accepted dogs we chose Hubbards to stay. We will probably stay at the other 2 areas in the future and travel to see our friends as we have in the past.

Room Tip: They do supply more items such as shampoo and conditioner and soaps and plenty of clean towels bette...

Thank you for your review of our property. We are in the process of deciding which mattresses need to be replaced, and upon looking into your concerns we have replaced the mattress in the master bedroom. We are happy to hear that other than the bed you had a good stay here in Hubbards and we appreciate your feedback.
