  • Lovely Nova Scotia Escape

    "My family spent a week in this lovely home during the summer. The house is very charming. It is large, spacious and was beautifully furnished with a keen eye to detail. It felt like a family home - not a vacation rental property. The kitchen was new and I loved cooking in it. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking out over the bay. The property is large and provided plenty of space for my children to run and play - they particularly enjoyed hunting for sea life along the shoreline. Each bedroom had its own character and the house is very close to the towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg so getting around was quick and easy. I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay with your family. We had a terrific time."

  • A Sweetheart of a Place

    "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."

  • Perfect Pear!

    "This property is located one block's walk from the center of Mahone Bay: a small town with delicious restaurants, a well-stocked grocery store, and sport rentals galore! We were able to walk to kayak rentals, do local hikes, and rent bicycles without starting the car. The accommodations are clean, beds comfortable, plenty of hot water for showers. It met our needs perfectly! The hosts live on the property, which was handy for when we had a question about other expeditions further away. High marks"

    "My family came to visit from the west coast this October, and we were looking for a place to accommodate our large number of people - including three young children! This rental property was ideal. The house itself is beautiful. It was spacious and had everything we needed to enjoy the area and our visit, as well as ample room for the kids to play and the adults to relax! We especially appreciated the large number of rooms and the ensuite bathrooms - very convenient for a bigger group and made sleeping arrangements comfortable and easy. The owners were responsive to our emails and very accommodating during our stay. We had a lovely time and would recommend this property to anyone visiting the area. Thank you! P"
