Chases Lobster pound at Port Howe sells both live and cooked lobster during and between the two the seasons on the this section of the Northumberland Strait. Cooked lobster from Chase’s provides a great start for an excellent picnic lunch. You can’t get a much better Nova Scotia experience than a fresh lobster picnic with a Nova Scotia wine at a Nova Scotia beach. We have tools (crackers) for the shells at the inn you can use for the occasion.
In addition to the cottage picnic tables or the gazebo here at the inn, there are several provincial beach parks you can visit and enjoy your lobster picnic at.
