With a seaside location in the heart of Broad Cove, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, our vintage hall is an ideal place to gather and share good times. Known for its great acoustics, the downstairs of the hall has warm, wood panelling that speaks of years gone by, while recent upgrades blend the future seamlessly with our past.
Upstairs is a a home-style, well-equipped kitchen, with a quirky assortment of dishes. Many recent renovations (new furnace and heat pump, new windows and insulation, refinished floors) make our hall cozy and comfortable all year round.
A barrier-free pathway from the front-door now leads the way to two downstairs washrooms, one of which is fully accessible. (Gone are the days when to access a washroom when a band was playing, one had to go up steps and across the stage to go the washroom!)
Renovations in 2022 also saw the interior downstairs brightened with the addition of a stunning floor-to-ceiling window-wall that overlooks both the cove and the very lovely Broad Cove beach just steps away from the hall. These windows can be folded back so musicians can remain indoors while performing to an outdoor audience. There is also a large upstairs viewing deck overlooking both the cove and the grounds of the hall. A perfect setting for a wedding!
Our beautiful outdoor grounds include a fire pit, beach volleyball court, picnic tables, swings and horseshoes.
These features come together in what a visitor recently described as “a striking blend of rustic and new!”

MODL Supports Broad Cove Hall in Quest for Accessibility
Press Release November 17, 2021
For Immediate Release
The Broad Cove Community Hall is one step closer to its vision of being “welcoming and accessible to all ages and abilities,” thanks to a recent $10,000 contribution from the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL) through its Major Recreation Capital Grants Program.
Mary Frier, Chairperson of the Broad Cove Community Association, says “while our vintage hall has always been an important hub for residents of our village and those nearby, it’s not fully accessible for people with physical challenges. We’re working hard to change that and appreciate the support from MODL in moving our plan forward.”
The MODL funding will be put towards a larger project designed by Logan Amos, Architect. Along with new accessible washrooms (with direct access from/to the outdoors), the renovations will also better integrate use of outdoor space with hall events and improve the appeal and function of the hall by taking advantage of its seaside location. Plans are to complete the project in two phases, with the first phase costing approximately $179,000.
“I’m very impressed with the association’s forward-looking plan,” says Mayor Carolyn Bolivar Getson, Municipality of the District of Lunenburg. “We have committed to fostering a culture of accessibility and encouraging the prevention and removal of barriers to participation, and this project is an important step in this commitment.”
