Tillicum has returned to her home on the river! Taking reservations now for June 2020 - see calendar. She is moored on the LaHave River accessed by 2 minute dinghy ride. Feeling adventurous or romantic? Wishing to go sailing? We have a 2 night minimum request to better enjoy the river and opportunities on board and in the area. Book a 3 night adventure. Try our Pirate Pizza! Take time to book a cruise.

The space
Tillicum is a west coast built wooden schooner who has traveled thousands of miles to reach Nova Scotia. You will travel by dinghy (1 minute) to reach the mooring. You will need to be agile to enter into the dinghy and exit up ladders and manage ladders aboard. Once there, a dinghy will be left with you for easy access to land or touring. Her interior is warm and cozy, and there is a toilet, fridge, and stove. If you are over 6"1" you will have to duck and bend a bit.
PLEASE REMEMBER - THIS EXPERIENCE INCLUDES A BOAT, MOTOR, SLEEPING ON A SCHOONER, AND ALL GAS INCLUDED. THIS EXPERIENCE CANNOT BE FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THIS PRICE. No need to worry about sea-sickness, as we are far enough away from the ocean so there is no rocking or rolling from the waves! If showering is needed, there is a large solar shower on board.
YOU MAY WISH TO TRY THE 3 NIGHT OPTION. THIS INCLUDES PIRATE PIZZA, AN OVERNIGHT IN RIVERPORT, EXPLORATION OF MUSEUMS AND OTHER ISLANDS, AND LUNCH AT THE LAHAVE YACHT CLUB. PLEASE ASK US ABOUT THIS TRUE MARITIME EXPERIENCE. Cost is $250 per person, which includes transportation, mooring fees, captain for the cruising, and Pirate Pizza the first night.
Perhaps you have booked for several nights, then you will be able to shower at the main house. There are cooking facilities aboard ( even refrigeration). We have a guest suite in the house if you are needing space for more than 2 or 3 aboard, and this can be booked at the same time. Check out Super Special Captain's Quarters.

Guest access
You will have the boat all to yourselves! A freshly baked artisan loaf of bread is supplied, fresh scones, plus some chocolate and trail mix. Coffee, specialty teas and honey are also offered. We have recently added a wood fired pizza oven, and charge just $30 for 2 Pirate Pizzas - you build your own fabulous pizza (Offered on specific nights - inquire) If there is a need for wi-fi please come on up to the house. Showers available upon request if stay is 2 nights or more. Launch service is $5 each way if there is an inability to operate or row the dinghy. YOU ARE EXPECTED TO BE SELF SUFFICIENT AND MANAGE A SMALL BOAT. SEE THE ABOVE NOTE. We cannot control if there are winds or rain.

Other things to note
There are times when the weather might be a bit cool or damp. Tillicum is quite cozy. We provide extra comforters for times when the rain or the chill comes. We also provide towels and linens for your overnight stay. If inclement weather is on the horizon, we have an extra bedroom for comfort. Please be aware that if you cannot operate the dinghy or row, you will be charged $5 for launch service each way.

Location

Upper LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

We are on the LaHave river, and have a very quaint community of houses and boats. There are trails for hiking,roads for cycling, lakes for swimming. The trees are beautiful and the scents from the flowers are hypnotic. Sunsets and sunrises are the best times. Wildlife is visible, with ospreys, eagles, seals, and a variety of smaller birds, too. Feel like exploring? Go ahead and take the dinghy out on the river or a kayak!

My husband and I have recently moved to Nova Scotia after having lived in several Canadian Provinces, taught school in China, and travelled by wooden schooner to Nova Scotia from Vancouver. We love to meet up with people and make new friends wherever we go. We like music, the outdoors, the water, boats, sunrises and sunsets, and peaceful times on a lake. We ask questions, like to find out what is going on locally, and eat fresh, local food. Our budget is generally on the low side when travelling, but our hopes and energies are high!

During your stay
Need directions to special locations? We are happy to give directions to restaurants, grocery stores, and the NSLC. We can also take you out sailing on the river for a small extra charge. It is important to have your own transportation to get here, but once here there is dinghy rowing, dinghy sailing, and walking. Come up to the house and take out our pedal boat or cook on our bbq and take your food back to Tillicum. Of course there is hanging out on the deck - especially watching the sunset!
