Le logement

Located on a saltwater inlet on Second Peninsula near UNESCO’s own Lunenburg, the Concept House is a contemporary, award-winning off-grid sustainable retreat, designed by Solterre Design. A network of local craftsmen built this off-grid 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in 2012 that sets a new standard for self-sufficiency and provides a comfortable, open concept and eclectic space to host your vacation and family and friends. Or, the favourite aspect of the house? To simply gazing across the gently sloping pasture to the ocean.

There are many spaces where to relax and enjoy the view -- an outdoor dining patio that seats 10, a firepit and many paths through the 3 Pastures lands to enjoy both waterfronts a wharf and great swimming on Martins Brook and also a sandy beach on Princes Inlet. These shorelines are some of the most idyllic kayaking and sailing waters in the Maritimes. Many islands within the Mahone Bay of islands are public and perfect spots to enjoy a picnic during your kayaking adventures. Biking on Second Peninsula will lead you to Bachman’s Beach, or the opposite direction will be a bike trail directly into Lunenburg for a day of touring, lunching and shopping.

Even though the Concept House is off-grid, it provides typical creature comforts: a tv room, wifi, dishwasher, freezer, clothes washer and two full baths. There is a fully stocked chef’s kitchen with a propane range, stocked provisions in the pantry and a 15-foot long stainless counter.


Interested in living in one of Canada's most energy-efficient houses while enjoying the beautiful shoreline? The Concept House provides the rare opportunity to stay in an award-winning house that is completely off the grid. The Concept House has all the amenities of modern life, yet provides comfort, activities and more all while cutting your carbon footprint to the most minimal effect. More information about the Concept House can be viewed on the Solterre Design website.

Guests can have as much or as little contact with us hosts as desired. You will never be left in the lurch in finding everything you need!

Most people arrive at the Concept House and are immediately distracted with the view. Don't expect to go far into the beautiful surroundings of Second Peninsula and Lunenburg County until you have soaked in the view from morning til night, when you'll see the most spectacular view of the stars ... telescope included.

One can travel ...
on foot
on bicycle
by kayak
by car
by sailboat
or, just stay put an enjoy the view!

We'll provide all the information you need about the house. Although it is off-grid, it is VERY user-friendly. You can be as involved in its monitoring, or just realize that it is close to a normal house.

We spent two wondrous weeks at the Concept House in early September with our two dogs. Being in one of the loveliest spots, on the Second Peninsula, we appreciated the privacy, our immediate connection with nature, the vast open fields, and the amazing light inside the house. The…

Hi Nancy, glad you've arrived home safe and sound. Thanks for the lovely review. Thanks also for the recommendation for us to offer a cleaning service for longer stays. I'll include that option in the offerings going forward.

This house is perfect for family vacation away from the city. It has a separate master bedroom with bathroom and 2 rooms sharing 1 bathroom. Spending time "off grids" ment for us to reevaluate things you're doing without thinking twice - like turning on the dishwasher or the wash…

We arrived at the Concept House at 1:30a since the CAT ferry from Portland to Yarmouth ran late due to engine issues. We went from being tired to awestruck on how special the house was. Believe it or not, our two teenagers actually thanked us for finding such an amazing home for …

We have had many positive experience at Airbnb rentals across North America but the Seaside Concept House was without a doubt the best. The home is lovely - frankly the pictures don't do it justice - and Jennifer is an amazing host. We were originally planning on staying four…
