and Guest House

Liscomb, Guysborough County, Nova Scotia, Canada

7 Miles from Historic Sherbrooke Village

Spanish Ship Bay is a part of Liscomb Harbor, located on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Rumor has it that the name originated because Captain Kidd used the bay as a place to hide his ships from British warships. Nowadays the bay’s treasures are its tasty mussels and scallops and its picturesque islands teeming with shorebirds.
Our guesthouse sits on the shore of this bay, across the street from the village general store. The house was recently renovated, and has two bedrooms and two baths, a modern kitchen and a large living/dining area. Amenities include a gas fireplace and satellite television. The south-facing view out over the water from the living room and deck is spectacular.
Our 572 square foot cottage sits adjacent to our wharf next to a babbling brook. The cottage built in 2007 gives you a panoramic view of the bay and its shore lines. It has a queen bed with an ensuite four piece bath, futon, large kitchen and living area, cathedral ceiling and skylight. As you sit on the spacious deck watching the birds and listening to the tranquil sounds of the brook, you will realize paradise is not so expensive; this might be the only therapy you’ll ever need.
The Eastern Shore is the least developed part of Nova Scotia and its natural beauty remains unspoiled. The house is provided with two kayaks in which you can explore the bay. Liscomb Harbor is an excellent site for sea kayaking, as are the adjacent harbors of Gegoggan and Ecum Secum. It is also a suburb location for daysailing and boating, and we encourage you to bring your own boats. The guest house has its own launching ramp and floating dock where you can tie up for the length of your stay.
If you are a scuba diver, we can show you the best sites for scallop diving and help you obtain a license and air, and we can arrange for a boat to take you there. If you like to hike, the Liscomb Lodge has great trails along the banks of the Liscomb river that will take you upstream to an old suspension bridge and fish ladder. Or we can arrange for a boat ride to Liscomb Island, where a two mile hike will take you to the lighthouse and a picnic lunch on the rocks of the Atlantic shore. Boat rides can also be taken to Gegoggan Harbor (inaccessible by road) where you can dig steamers, quahogs and razor clams on miles of isolated, sandy beaches. In the fall we offer guided hunting trips for bear, deer and duck. Squash players can get temporary memberships at the nearby Liscomb Squash Club. Both the Liscomb River and the St. Mary’s river are excellent salmon streams and the inland lakes in this area teem with trout.
Children will delight in exploring the rock pools on the intertidal zone in front of the guest house. Ten miles to the east is Sherbrooke Village, a restored 19th century village museum whose exhibits include a working smithy, boatbuilding shop and water powered sawmill. The Little Bookroom in Little Liscomb is a children’s library with over three thousand volumes. It’s not easy to be bored in Liscomb.
We encourage you to call or email us with any questions. We look forward to your stay with us, knowing that it will be a memorable and unforgettable experience.
