About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Mahone Bay South Shore Nova Scotia attracts an intriguing and interesting audience, some passers by like to take a peaceful stroll through the town, others are fascinated by the sheer beauty of the flora & fauna some of us cannot resist the temptation to stay for a while.

Sheltering Blue Sky is nestled in the heart of this quaint and extremely colourful town. The owners have revived this old turn of the century house into a serene and exciting space, they welcome anybody who is interested in a stay to experience a truly sumptuous outdoor but most importantly indoor living space. An open plan concept unfolds as you walk through the house, each area has been carefully arranged to give the weary traveller the space they need to unwind, from a upstairs reading gallery, to a downstairs chill out lounge with additional open plan living and eating space. The kitchen has been completely remodeled and enjoys a bar and separate dining area.

The small garden very neatly formed, at the rear of the house lies an additional small deck for those all import quiet glasses of something. The outside space has been given a new lease of sitting space recently, a couple of sturdy decks for passing the time of day on.

Sheltering Blue Sky awaits new guests, the stone floors are awaiting traffic and the deep lived in leather furnishings are finding their place.

Sheltering Blue Sky has a superking bedroom, a large three piece ensuite, one king and one queen bedroom, a large three piece guest bathroom. The upstairs gallery lounge has been designed for quiet time or nursing time, the downstairs chillout space boasts a 50in wall mounted digital TV, with stereo. The main open plan lounge leads into kitchen and dining area. There is good sized utility room with the all important boot and cloak room, not forgetting a delightful downstairs washroom.

The deck to the side of the house has been designed for private BBQ's and outdoor chatter! A table and chairs are available for dining.
