Thank you for all your interest this year. It was a fantastic summer! We are currently closed right now due to winter. If you are interested in booking next year, we will resume taking reservations next June. Tillicum rests on the LaHave River. Bridgewater and Lunenburg are nearby. (LaHave Bakery down the river) You'll love the sunsets, stars, and privacy. Feeling adventurous or wanting a romantic time? Wishing to go sailing? Tillicum can do it all!

Completely wonderful experience. Heidi and Russ and phenominal hosts. Lots of nice extra touches. The solitude of the location can't be beat. Not just a place to stay but a unique and satisfying opportunity to relax on the water and take it all in.
