Smugglers Cove Inn

This is where we stay every year when we visit the area during our annual Maritime trip!


Smuggler's Cove Inn in Lunenburg is centrally located and allows you to experience their way of life and explore their historic architecture, attractions and amenities.


Lunenburg is a great starting point to visit other attractions in the area, Peggy’s Cove and The Oven’s are just two of them, enjoy a day trip to the famous lighthouses along the South Shore or experience the world’s highest tides on the Bay of Fundy side of Nova Scotia.  


They are located in the perfect spot to base yourself for some incredible day-tripping. Only an hour drive to big city Halifax, an hour to vineyard country Wolfville, twenty minutes to scenic Mahone Bay, an hour to picturesque Peggy's Cove and its' famous lighthouse, and more.


We stop at Rhubards every year when we visit Nova Scotia.  We always try to sit on the patio, order fish and chips (best batter ever) and each order a glass of Sauvignon Blanc (and I have to point out it is the BEST chilled wine ever!).


If you want fresh, locally-sourced food served in a casual atmosphere among friends, Rhubarb is it. 


Operators, Jim and Diane Buckle , care a lot about their food and their customers and it shows. Together, they have crafted a tasty array of seasonal, value-priced dishes to tempt serious gourmands and comfort foodies alike presented with unsurpassable service.

Whether you live in the neighborhood or are visiting from away, come enjoy the creative cookery at Rhubarb - minutes from Peggy's Cove, and less than an hour from Halifax.
