Thorburn is a small town where one of the largest coal mines was located. We are 10 minutes from New Glasgow which is a larger city with many local events and amenities. We are 20 minute from Pictou which is a historical town with museums and local food fare, and an hour and a half from the major center of Halifax. We are not set up for handicapped as the rooms are on the second floor. We do have animals in the house and are a quiet family. We enjoy people from all backgrounds.
