About Matthias MacLellan
I am a carpenter and a young man from the area, I rebuilt this house with help from my father in 2012. I have been around the world and the rugged, pristine coastline of Nova Scotias South Shore is a truly special place. Summer rentals allow me to pay the mortgage and I am happy to share my slice of paradise.
Matthias MacLellan purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Matthias MacLellan chose Fox Point
I choose to buy this property because of the spectacular location and having the skillset and energy to turn it into something beautiful. I am a wooden boat owner and sailing enthusiast and hope to still be in this house as an old man.

Great location, great view!
We had a lovely time staying at this property for almost a week...far enough away from the busy city for peace and relaxation yet close enough to explore so many places. The house was clean, well maintained and offered beautiful sunrise views off the water...if you’re looking for a relaxing place to call home and relax, this is an easy choice!
Beautiful Property, Great House, Amazing View
A great spot!
Tucked away on semi-private lane, the location is excellent having the best of both worlds being right on the ocean and close to grocery, drug, and NSLC stores.
The house is very nice, clean, and well equipped. The loft layout gave it a nice open feeling and the kids loved their loft areas. It was very comfortable in the late evening/night for sitting back and watching movies. There is an Apple TV so make sure you have an iTunes account to rent movies and shows. We brought our own Apple TV and just switched plugs having access to our own purchased movies and the account already set up.
The second deck on the beach was our late afternoon spot for cocktails, snacks, and a game of cards. It was also a great spot just to sit and watch the ocean while relaxing.
The beach is not the best for swimming due to the seaweed, but it and the tidal pool next to it are great for beach combing. There is a lot of wildlife on the rocks at low-tide and even 1 or 2 seals that hang around all day. For swimming and great snorkeling, we walked 5 minutes towards the town centre to a beach I think known as Cannery Beach which is maintained by local volunteers. It has some powdery sand and is nice and sandy for swimming. It is small (about 100'-125' long) and we often had it to ourselves.
Matt was very obliging and responded quickly to our questions. Thanks Matt!
Overall a great place to have a great vacation.
My Stay in Hubbards
What a lovely spot on the water! This cottage is cozy and inviting, yet, due to its layout, could sleep 8 or 9 people if needed. I enjoyed the view and the many seabirds that congregate on a rocky shoal just offshore. I found everything comfortable, and while the weather was beautiful, I would have equally enjoyed myself had it been rainy or cool, as there is a wood stove in the livingroom. The owner responded quickly to my few questions, but there was no burdensome list of 'rules and regulations' posted anywhere, which indicates to me that he is a trusting person, and genuinely wants his guests to enjoy their stay. I would return here for sure.
Lovely house with spectacular views in fantastic location!!!
We have spent first week of July in this house. What a treat!!! Beautiful views, sunrises and sunsets, fire on rocky beach... Not to mention canoe and kayak! Our daughters also had great time and did not want to leave.
If someone is looking to spend some time near water in Nova Scotia, they would be hard pressed to find a better candidate.
Highly recommended! Five stars!
