Unique Oceanview Hilltop Retreat

Please note* Make sure you select your preferred currency in the header for accurate pricing.

Hill Top Retreat sits high on top a hill overlooking the majestic Atlantic ocean. Just minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg.

Sit outside with a glass of wine under the pergola and watch the famous Bluenose II sail into port, or cozy up around the outdoor fire pit in the evening and roast marshmallows... or do some stargazing. If you feel adventurous you could walk or take one of the bicycles into town. Grab one of our 2 kayaks and go for a paddle.

Lunenburg is host to many festivals and street fairs, including the Nova Scotia Folk Art and Folk Harbour Festival. The property is only 4.3 kms to the town itself and the Lunenburg Golf Course. Lunenburg has many attractions, from the Bluenose II and the Atlantic Museum of Fisheries to several boat tours (deep sea fishing and whale watching) to ghost walks. There is so much to see! Don't forget the fantastic restaurants and coffee shops to dine in or take out.

HillTop is an hours drive away from Halifax. Just a 30 minute drive to Nordic Spa, 20 mins to Oak Island, 15 mins to the picturesque town of Mahone Bay, or minutes to the Ovens Sea Caves. Explore all of the nearby beaches. Walk Masons Beach just a 2 minute ride on your way into Lunenburg and look for seas glass, or spend an afternoon at nearby Hirtles Beach in Kingsburg and hike the popular Gaff Point trail. Rissors, Crescent and Carters beaches are definitely worth a mention.

Spend a couple hours at any of the great wineries or breweries around. Stay local and visit Gaspereau, Lunenburg or Petite Riviere Vineyards or make a day of it and travel to Luckett's, Grand Pre, Lightfoot, or Benjamin Bridge vineyards in the Annapolis Valley. Most of which have excellent restaurants (Luckett's worth a stop and get a photo taken at their famous phone box). Salt Box Brewery is just in the nearby town of Mahone Bay (known for their famous 3 churches..good shopping). After you have sampled a few, make your way over to The Barn for a great cup of coffee.

If it is more relaxation you are looking for, why not book a day at the nearby Nordic Spa in Chester, or book a massage at the Spa@Ninety4 right in Lunenburg.

Hill Top Retreat is a 1750 square foot post and beam farmhouse that was originally built in 1864 just outside of Yarmouth County in the southern part of Nova Scotia. In 2000 it was disassembled and moved to its present location, high on top a hill (thus the name), on 8.5 acres of land. There are 2 other houses that share the hill. This house was reconstructed on a poured concrete slab with in floor radiant heat. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 living areas. It boasts all the rustic charm of an older home, but with modern amenities.

This property has deeded access to the ocean ...great for launching kayaks or small boats. This home also makes an excellent winters retreat with a large toboggan hill only a two minute walk away. Make sure to stop at The Boulangerie La Vendeenne bakery just off exit 11 on your way before you check in.

We are committed to making your stay a safe and clean one. From the keyless entry to the availability of PPE for our guests.

*We do recommend guests take their shoes off at the door. Please feel free to bring indoor shoes however.

This place checked all the boxes for our group of 4 adults and 3 toddlers. Very neat structure with everything you need well labelled. The owners went out of their way to make sure appropriate beds were available for the kids. The place was so great, the only thing I could put as a negative was that the soap dispensers are in a bottle marked lotion haha.
