The NEW Nova Scotia Tourists

The European Travel Market – many European economies are generally stronger than the USA; and, with the population aging, retirees and empty-nesters are eager to spend their money on unique travel experiences. There is a preference for vacations that involve nature: hiking, cycling, walking, and whale watching, as well as locations where there are fewer crowds.  Areas rich in natural splendour and wildlife, would be appealing to this market; especially with a peaceful and private waterfront location.

Getaway Travel – almost 40% of travelers go on more day and weekend trips than five years ago. With the areas secluded beaches, and romantic seaside villages; and, with the numerous fishing lakes and the nearby golf courses, the Eastern Shore is certainly one of Nova Scotia’s best kept secrets for a weekend getaway…

Women only – increased about 230% over the past six years; in fact 75% of those taking nature, adventure or cultural trips are women. Don’t rule out surfing as an increasing number of women are taking up the sport; and, surfing as adventure travel has also increased. Lawrencetown and Liverpool are located in a regions known for its great surfing.

Family & Grandparent/Grandchild Travel Market – It is predicted that family travel will continue to grow at a faster rate than all other forms of leisure travel; in fact, approximately 34% of adults in the US traveled to a family reunion in the past three years. The prevalence of two income families, coupled with the aging of the baby boomer population, has made Family & Grandparent/Grandchild travel among the top travel trends.

Motorcycle Touring – aging baby boomers are indulging in their interest in motorcycling and treating themselves to the bike of their dreams. Nova Scotia is increasingly being recognized as a quality motorcycle-touring destination; and, Eastern Shore’s oceanside highway is certainly a popular route

Click on the YouTube links, after the above video plays, to see Motorbike touring & Tidal Bore Rafting. For more peaceful kayaking footage, there is also a link to extra Cape Chignecto touring… Enjoy! And call us if you’re wanting a piece of Nova Scotia of your very own

Upscale Eastern Shore B & B – Accepted Offer & WHY

Eastern Shore property

Located just off Highway 7, on a quiet road, on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore, this exquisite ca 6687 sq ft home is an entertainer’s dream comes true. Although it looks modest on the roadfront side, inside this home gives you an exhilarating sense of space that is rare to find – especially in a B&B. The vaulted ceilings, cathedral windows, and the expansive, unobstructed views of Porter’s Lake are absolutely awesome and breathtaking.

Eastern shore property

Pour a glass of wine and enjoy the spectacular sunsets from your huge main floor balcony. Sip a cup of tea on your step out master suite terrace and listen to the babbling brook that rushes through the property. These are the kinds of moments that have made A1 B&B a 4.5 star rated resort – imagine living here 365 days a year…!

The location, the beauty and grandeur of the home, and the nautical lifestyle has drawn a steady stream of local and European guests. Porter’s Lake is one of the most popular lakes for recreational boating in the region; so A-1 could grow their service offerings to target boaters. With the 3-slip wharf, why not charge parking and berthing fees; and, if you would expand the parameters of your business license to include meals other than breakfast, A-1 could also be a place for boaters to have a casual lunch, a BBQ, and/or some sun on A-1’s beach.

Perhaps you might get a full restaurant licence and capitalize on your waterfront location. There is only one other B&B in the area that has an adjoining restaurant; and with the residential growth in the area expected to increase, this could be an excellent venture to have. The property is approved for entrepreneurial use even though it is zoned residential.

Special retreat weekends for women or for training workshops and meetings could even be developed. The use of the lakefront area for weddings could also be explored not only because it can accommodate up to ca 250 guests, but because there are very few locations in the region where you can have both a wedding and a reception outdoors.

Porter's Lake dock

Property Description

This immaculate home with its large hallways, spacious feel, full downstairs bar, multiple balconies, lake frontage, and wharf with electrical hook-ups, is definitely a recipe for a Lifestyle Home. Whatever the season, whether you wish to keep it as a B&B or have it as your principal residence, this is a home that invites relaxation and celebration.

The main floor is quite simply dramatic. The grand double-door entrance showcases the expansive view to Porter’s Lake. The three sided gas fireplace allows for the fire’s warm glow to be clearly seen from the living, great room and dining areas. Natural light streaming through the bay window, a hot cup of coffee and the morning paper in front of you – happy, heavy sighs are quite common at this home! The kitchen will give you plenty of working space on its ocean-blue countertops with centre island, lake-view window over the sink, dry storage pantry, dishwasher, double fridge, propane cook top stove, and a wall oven – all you need to fire-up your inner culinary genius!

Porter's Lake kitchen

Whether you maintain the home as a B&B or you use for yourself and your family, the layout allows for maximum privacy. What is particularly appealing is the intuitive flow the space which is accentuated by the extra wide hallways. There are two generously sized bedrooms, with two full and one half baths on the main floor perfect for your live-in in-laws, and ideal for those with mobility issues.

This resort-style home offers you a massive master bedroom (honeymoon suite) with a solid oak mantled gas fireplace, and luxurious ensuite with a whirlpool jet tub, bidet, and stand-up shower. Wake up in this light infused room and hear the gentle movement of water, whether it is lake water lapping at the shoreline, or the babbling brook rushing through a shallow rock crevice that borders the property. Step out onto your own private balcony and breathe in the pure morning air – you will live in A-1 luxury in this waterfront home.

The centrepiece of the lower level is the full-sized, solid cedar, professional bar enclosure. Fridays will certainly find your friends knocking at your door to hang out in this huge, lake view space that could also be rented out for parties, and special events for additional revenue generation. Or maybe you could create your own yoga studio – and run the business from the adjoining office. Having a separate entrance allows your clients private access to the studio.

The grounds are relatively low maintenance being mainly well-groomed grass, with mature evergreen and deciduous trees at its borders. Retaining walls of natural stones line the water’s edge, and keep water away from the main property to shore it up against erosion. BBQ-ready and waiting for memories to be made – they could be yours…

The distinct advantages of A-1’s location:

• One of few B&B’s in the area: and one of the only ones with a 4.5 star rating

Lakefront property with boat access to wharf

• Nearby restaurants: Salmon River House, The Bear Den Café, Tin Roof Mercantile & Café, German Lunch Box

• Close to major area attractions such as surfing beaches, golf courses, museums, and hiking trails


Porter’s Lake with 3200 residents has become one of the fastest growing communities in the Halifax Regional Municipality, is only ca 4 km from A-1 B&B. Porter’s Lake is one of the largest lakes in the province and provides numerous access points for boating, swimming, fishing, and every other water sport and activity you desire.

Do all your shopping as well as other essential appointments only minutes from your lakeside home. Porter’s Lake has a Superstore, service station, pub, spa, hardware store, post office, other food outlets, professional services, veterinary hospital, community centre, and dental and medical clinics. You can have it all – a resort-style waterfront home in the countryside just ca 30 minutes from the city and from Halifax International Airport, and just ca 25 minutes to Dartmouth Crossing – one of the largest shopping areas in Nova Scotia.

Business on the Eastern Shore

You might think that living in a rural community means that business networks will be limited; not so on the Eastern Shore, as there’s a very active business community here! Cross-marketing and collaboration are two of the keys to the shared success of local businesses. If you are in business here, chances are you know most of the others as well; and, in this market, that is an advantage! You will also be surprised by the diversity of businesses and services available in the Eastern Shore; so, this not only helps the area to sustain itself, it keeps trips to the City (ca 30 min. away) to a minimum.Eastern Shore NS

The Eastern Shore, historically, has been a foundational contributor to the prosperity of the province of Nova Scotia, through its gold mining and fishing industries. Mining still contributes to the economy, although many of the original gold mining operations are now closed. The Shore’s seaport town of Canso was one of North America’s first establishments, predating both Lunenburg and Halifax. The area’s shipping legacy will live on, as it was recently announced that a major international container port will soon be established Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Fishing is still a core industry that feeds the local economy; and, the small string of fishing villages that line the Shore’s coastline, continue to capture the distinctive charm of that is Maritime culture.

The Eastern Shore, also known as the Marine Drive area, is a scenic area known for its pristine beauty and its friendly residents. The dramatic coastlines, breathtaking golf courses, lend themselves to a recreational lifestyle that is attracting a growing number of people into the region. Local businesses are following suit with the establishment of a diverse array of shops and services; and, with several restaurants in the area offering tasty eat-in or take-out food , local residents have less and less need to drive into Halifax or Dartmouth for an evening out.

Eastern Shore NS

Porters Lake Provincial Park is open from mid-May until mid-October, with roughly ca 166 woodland campsites, a picnic area, boat launch, and trailer dump station. Enjoy a day of swimming (no lifeguard), fishing, canoeing and waterskiing only minutes from home. In addition, there is a plan evolving to designate a large area north and west of Porters Lake as wilderness so that for many future generations, the Porter’s Lake area will remain naturally beautiful.

The Petpeswick Yacht Club is nearby and has regular sailing classes for both adults and children – make the most of your nautical lifestyle. Prefer to stay on land, well, Martinique Beach and the Middle Musquodoboit Golf courses both offer golf lessons. This quiet rural region of Eastern Shore has a surprising number of festivals and events; so, any way you look at it, buying into a home in Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore is an investment in living your best life.

Lifestyle Businesses in Nova Scotia


What is a Nova Scotia Lifestyle Business?  According to Wikipedia, “a lifestyle business is a business that is set up and run by its founders primarily with the aim of sustaining a particular level of income and no more; or to provide a foundation from which to enjoy a particular lifestyle”.  In Nova Scotia, these businesses are often family run, and/or tourism related.

Useable Waterfront

Also, creative endeavors are able to be grown by an individual, and “typically have limited scalability and potential for growth because such growth would destroy the lifestyle for which their owner-managers set them up. However, lifestyle businesses can and do win awards and provide satisfaction to their owners and customers.”


An example of such a Lifestyle business is the Harbourview B&B in Cape Breton.

On the waterfront side of the property, there are an additional 6 fully winterized, suites housed in modular buildings. Each suite has a queen size bed, a double pull out bed in the sitting area, a small kitchenette with microwave and fridge, 4 piece bathroom (toilet, sink, tub with shower), and satellite TV.


Outside the house, the huge deck has been enclosed; guests and locals will soon be able to enjoy morning coffees and lobster suppers in the cozy comfort of this Oceanside space.


With its proximity to local colleges, Harbourview is able to rent out its motel units to students on a weekly or monthly basis; this is especially beneficial during the off-season time periods; in short, these units provide a steady source of income throughout the year. There is also a view lot across the street, which includes an income-generating bungalow; and, behind the house, a separate parcel of undeveloped property is available to allow for expansion. Just imagine the potential of this fabulous lifestyle business!


Built by Embree Shipbuilders in 1880, this 222 square metre heritage home, appropriately named Captain James Embree House, not only stands as a testament to the craftsmanship of the day, but as a rich legacy of Nova Scotia’s maritime culture. Harbourview is located in the town of Port Hawkesbury, which lies at the bridge way between mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton; as such, it is a popular place to stay not only for travellers, but also for those who have business within Nova Scotia. Harbourview is centrally located within walking distance of the town centre, the waterfront boardwalk, pubs, restaurants, banking, and shopping.


„This 4-bedroom heritage home offers you and your guests plenty of cosy and charming living space. Every immaculately kept room has bead board floors which have retained their original colour and patina. This is not surprising, given that the high traffic floor areas have been covered with antique floor cloths, and that the house has changed hands only five times in the past 128 years. There have been many upgrades inside the house, including updated bathrooms and a new electrical system“.

For an amazing PDF brochure on the area, please click to see the 9 page Expose found on www.RobinsonHarmsen.com.


(Ohhhhh  the views from the oceanfront facing side of the property!)

And just FYI, the neighbouring home you see on the Google streetview, is no longer there!

Diese Ferienanlage hat viele Besucher, die immer wiederkommen, weil sie die Landschaft und die See-Kajak-Touren lieben.  Advocate Harbour liegt etwa 3 Fahrstd. (ca. 213 km) von Halifax / Nova Scotia (360.000 Einwohner) und etwa 2 Fhrstd. von Moncton / New Brunswick (730.000 Einwohner) entfernt, zwischen dem Cape D´orund Cape Chignecto eingebettet.

Die Küste zwischen diesen Orten ist als „bay bar“ durch die Fundy-Gezeiten entstanden. Advocate Harbour ist einer der wenigen Häfen mit den höchsten Gezeiten in der Welt und eine willkommene Station auf der Fundy-Shore-Ecotour, die Sie zu faszinierenden geologischen Sehenswürdigkeiten führt.

Diese landschaftlich reizvolle Tour umschließt mehrere Gebiete der Bay of Fundy und folgt dem Ufer der Chignecto Bay, Minas Basin und Cobequid Bay. Die Eco-Tour schneidet oft den Glooscap Trail und ist an großen Teilen der Küste nicht zu Fuß erreichbar, sondern nur mit dem Kajak. Advocate Harbour ist eines der ältesten akadischen Dörfer im atlantischen Kanada, mit vielen alten Häusern und einer sehr entspannten Atmosphäre.


Die Ferienhäuser liegen nur etwa 45 Min von dem weltberühmten “ Fossil Cliffs off Joggins“ entfernt. Diese fossilen Klippen sind als UNESCO – Weltnaturerbe eingestuft worden.


The Driftwood Park Retreat was awarded the 2009 Sustainable Tourism Award from TIANS for exemplifying leadership in balancing economic, environmental and cultural authenticity.

The Sustainable Tourism Award also stems from a vision to create distinctive lodgings without adding man-made stress to the local environment.

With the help of environmental specialists, and unique to Nova Scotia, a method of managing the waste-water system for the cottages has been created which operates with the help of gravity and a diverse array of aquatic plants.

The Driftwood Park Retreat is a very special place. As one guest wrote, „the real connection here is to the land, water and sky.“

Driftwood Park Retreat Cottages is a Turnkey Lifestyle Business along the beautiful Fundy Shore.
