Quiet Solitude on the Lighthouse Route
Located near Barrington (the lobster capital of Nova Scotia) this beautiful, renovated guesthouse is situated in Clark’s Harbour on Cape Sable Island. The island is pristine, with wide beaches, blue, clear water and fresh, ocean air. Cape Sable Island is within the Unesco Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve, one of the largest in Canada with over 1.5 million hectares of picturesque coastal and inland terrains. This unique area is globally recognized for its unique natural biodiversity and cultural treasures. The Biosphere Reserve’s “core protected area” includes Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site, the Dark Sky Preserve and Starlight Zone, and the Tobeatic Wilderness Area. The surrounding Biosphere “Zone of Cooperation” features Atlantic coast beaches, rocky headlands, North Mountain, the mighty Bay of Fundy with the world’s highest tides, and pastoral Annapolis Valley.
Clark’s Harbour sits on the famous Lighthouse Route that meanders the South Shore of the province. Starting in Halifax and Peggy's Cove, the Lighthouse Route ends, appropriately, at one of Nova Scotia's most dramatic and historically significant lighthouses. The Yarmouth Light stands on the rocky point of Cape Forchu, named by Samuel de Champlain in 1604.
Quiet and secluded, Harbour Guesthouse is an ideal spot to stay along the route. The two story, Cape Cod style home, is original to the island and has been restored to a modern, dream guesthouse. Gorgeous, open plan interiors with large kitchen, living and dining and bath/laundry on main floor. The second floor features two cozy bedrooms and large queen suite overlooking the ocean and harbour. Open from May 24th to Thanksgiving.
