Blue Rocks Community

Blue Rocks is a charming, walkable village known for its artist galleries, kayaking tours, and cute general store. It is also a working fishing village. The fishing shack, located directly across from the cottage, is the most photographed building in Lunenburg county and is a painter’s delight.

In addition to fabulous croissants, coffee, and ice cream, the shop sells charming local art.
