If you've ever mentioned Mahone Bay to anyone that has visited they'll say, 'Oh I love Mahone Bay.' We are sure you'll agree. You will find Mahone Bay directly on the scenic 'Lighthouse Route' , following a coast that looks out to over 365 islands, one for every day of the year! It is only an hour and a half drive from the Halifax airport and about the same from New York and Boston! But that's by plane, of course. Steeped in nautical history and even a little piratical intrigue the town's habour is carved out of Nova Scotia's craggy South Shore. Protected waters and magnificent views make it a popular sailing, kayaking, cycling and hiking destination. Charming eateries & specialty stores make it a popular shopping destination. Whether you come for a day, a weekend, a season or a lifetime Mahone Bay will leave an impression, and a good one at that!
The original Bluenose was designed by William Roué and built by the Smith and Rhuland Shipyard in Lunenburg. She was launched at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on March 26, 1921, as both a working fishing schooner and a racing ship. This was in response to a Nova Scotian ship's defeat in the International Fishermen's Race for working schooners established by the Halifax Herald newspaper in 1920
Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic
The breath-taking Lunenburg waterfront is the home of the world-class Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. The Museum commemorates the fishing heritage of the Atlantic coast of Canada. Housed in brightly painted red buildings, with floating vessels at wharfside, the Museum offers a host of attractions, a maritime gift shop and restaurant.
Fishermen's Memorial and Tribute
On August 25, 1996, The Fishermens' Memorial was unveiled in Lunenburg. It is located on the waterfront between Adams and Knickle and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. The monument shaped as a compass rose, comprises eight three-sided columns at each compass point. Inscribed on these black granite columns are the names of mariners, primarily fishermen from Lunenburg County who lost their lives at sea from 1890 until the present.
Heritage Sites & Architecture
The taste and lifestyles of Lunenburg's rich past create a smorgasbord of building styles. In the space of a block or two you'll find a Cape Cod more than two centuries old; a classic Queen Anne Revival; a simple saltbox; a grand Victorian; and a revised-Gothic church! It makes a simple stroll down the streets of Lunenburg an architecture enthusiast's dream

About the owner: We feel in love with this property the first time we laid eyes on it's beautiful grounds and view of the bay. The home had been run down and in need of some major repairs. We have been devoted to this home and property to bring it back to how it would have looked at it's peak. After three years we have named the newly renovated home after one of it's previous owners Williams Prine Hayes to honor his service for our country. Mr. Hayes reached the rank of Commodore in 1954 and also held commands at Royal Military Colllege and at the Royal Roads Miliary College.
