|The historic Rope Loft, known locally as the Old Wharf, is one of the oldest buildings still in commercial use in Nova Scotia, we are over 200 years old. In its time the solid oak building has seen fish, coal, grain and rum; privateers and pleasure craft, honest trading schooners & perhaps some landings unrecorded in local customs house.
The building was constructed using the remnants of the famed privateer ship "Teaser", which burned and sank in the waters of Mahone Bay. With loving care the hand -hewn beams have been spruced up, both inside and out, leaving the old character of the building unchanged.
