Shobac Cottages

As a Canadian, I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never been to the Maritimes. Nova Scotia is on my target list for next summer and I now have even more reason to visit:

Thanks to my world-class adventurer friends at Trufflepig, I’ve discovered the Shobac cottages near Lunenburg, NS. This ocean-side spot, designed by architect Bryan Mackay-Lyons along with support of interns from his “Ghost” summer architectural apprenticeship, offers four newly constructed cottages, a large studio, and an octagonal barn.

Each identical 800 square foot cottage has 7-foot tall windows that frame the ocean view of the Atlantic. You can rent a single unit or the entire place for an event.

Sounds fantastic…now I just have to concoct an event worthy enough for a stay!
