  • Wonderful Family Retreat

    "We stayed there with another couple in October, 2914 during the peak of foliage season. The house is isolated and has a spectacular water view. A kayak and canoe are provided for use in the pond behind the house. There are many walking trails on the property with lot of room for the kids and dogs to play outside. For those that want to travel, The Writer's Retreat is centrally located in Nova Scotia with easy access to Cape Breton, the Cabot Trail and the Ceildh Trail. It is also possible to do day trips to Halifax and PEI. Antigonish is just 20 minutes away. The house is nicely decorated and has 5 deck with great views. The upper level with the master bedroom, bathroom and a sitting area with a desk is especially attractive. The owner is extremely accommodating and friendly and has caregivers nearby if needed in her absence. Staying at The Writer's Retreat was a great decision. It provided a home away from home for a fabulous vacation!"

  • View of the Bay of Fundy

    "This lovely home was perfect. Great amenities lived up to their advertisements. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and always available to help or answer any questions. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to my family and friends. I'd stay there again! The people in Nova Scotia are super friendly and outgoing - a great visit in a great province."

  • 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"
