Farmhouse

The Farmhouse, with simple cottage style,  has seven bedrooms with 8 beds, a breakfast kitchen and common rooms. With access to a piano and many beloved novels, this space provides homey accommodations for retreats and events alike.

Lamella Gathering Space

The Lamella was built by the Dalhouse School of Architecure and Coastal Studios and is an innovative warm weather gathering space with benches and tables.

Boat Studio and Stage

The Diogenes is a piece of Canadian history, formerly part of the HMCS Bonaventure. Donated to the Centre by Brian Garvey and Sue Gibson-Garvey, we retrofitted the boat with assistance from ACOA and the Province of Nova Scotia as a studio and performance venue. For day use by writers or other artists, it also has a wonderful deck which can be used for small performances. It was the stage for 2009′s Two Planks and Passion Theatre Production of Rockbound.

Camp Area

We have a camp area with 4 heated bunkhouses which house 12 people each with a large field in the middle, with a  magical campfire area.

Celebration Tents

Three beautiful white tents for your special on or offsite function. Two are a 20’ x 20’ square and the other is a 40’ octagon with high peak. Two  have closable sides and will provide your event with a rustic form of elegance.
