"Far Far Away Guesthouse is comfortable, cozy and uniquely styled- we enjoyed the decor and artwork. Jay was sweet to leave us a card and bottle of wine as I mentioned it was our anniversary. He was easy to communicate with, very laid back, and overall the perfect host.
The cottage is well stocked with extras and some basic food supplies- coffee, sugar, etc, so there is very little one would need to run to the store to get. Close to Mahone Bay (Mug & Anchor restaurant, Jennifer's Bakery are MUSTS) and Chester Basin, (The Galley was wonderful/romantic). The Chester Connector trail goes over the Gold River and along the old train route- we found the area breathtaking. The beauty of this spot is it's out-of-the-way location, while being close to everything one comes to Nova Scotia to see.
Caveats: The bathroom is quite cramped, but we managed. The water pump was so loud I didn't wish to flush the toilet or take an early morning shower because I didn't wish to awaken my partner. But I wouldn't hestitate to come back to visit again- I'd just bring earplugs for my honey.
It fit with our style of traveling- a base camp for our explorations. It's less than an hour from Ross Farm Museum up Route 12, Martock (OnTree Park) up route 14 and Halifax, up highway 103."

"We loved the setting - right on the cove - very scenic and oh so quiet - yet near to town for food shopping, gas, hiking trails, highway access, etc. House is very nice - fully stocked kitchen, big windows, deck, comfy beds, lots to read -- everything we needed!"

"We spent 5 nights at this beautiful condo. It is exactly as described. The condo is situated very close to all amenities and right across from a very large active municipal park, close to grocery stores and quaint restaurants. The condo is fully equipped and it's like bring at home. Would definitely recommend this rental. It's perfect for two couples."
