DESCRIPTION

“The Shobac Campus is a mixture of old and new, as reclaimed historic buildings sit next to modern buildings unified by their material palette. The 1830 Chebogue schoolhouse, the site’s newest acquisition, is an historic building rescued from the community near where architect and owner, Brian MacKay-Lyons was born and raised. The restoration includes the movement of the building and upgrading the materials. The exterior walls are clapboard, there is a cedar shingled roof, and has reused historic windows throughout while the interior floors and wainscoting are 18” wide pine boards. This restored schoolhouse is located on the Shobac Campus adjacent to the historic octagonal Troop Barn which was recently moved to the site and restored in 2009.

From the main level, one can enjoy the pastoral and ocean views surrounding the building. The ‘great room’, containing a kitchen, dining and living areas, includes a beautiful freestanding wood stove and maintains the feeling of the original open plan schoolhouse. Original restored wooden benches add authenticity. Ground level amenities include a half bath, state of the art kitchen with European appliances and a large terrace. A full basement contains laundry facilities and a large exterior terrace. The second floor has two bedrooms including a bunk room and a luxurious master bedroom. The master bathroom also boasts a second modern wood stove and has windows throughout the room offering vistas over the LaHave Islands.  There is a 6-person hot tub on the deck overlooking the ocean.

The building has been fully winterized for year round rentals.

In addition to the Schoolhouse, the Shobac Campus also features four Cottages, Point House and Gate House as accommodation options.  The Studio and the historic octagonal Barn can be rented for events, and are ideal for arts workshops, weddings, equestrian vacations, family reunions, or corporate retreats. The entire site can also be rented offering the solitude of "a lost village at the end of the earth.’” MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects
