Mahone Bay's cutest cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in Mahone Bay located on Main St just a short walk to town center. Everything was as advertised and we really enjoyed the complimentary wine, bread and cheese! Thanks Jill for the recommendation of Rebecca's restaurant...we ate there twice! We highly recommend Jill's cottage and Mahone Bay as a place to unwind. We'd definitely come back!

Charm and Comfort on the South Shore!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was my home-away-from home for July. I loved everything about it. It was charmingly decorated and very clean. The small basket of local treats was such a welcoming touch! The cottage had everything I needed for an extended stay--plenty of cooking devices--not having a traditional stove/oven was not an issue at all. The location was great--a short walk to restaurants and shops in beautiful Mahone Bay and close to the two main roadways, making it the perfect base for exploring the South Shore. The super-comfortable bed and quiet nights meant relaxing nights' sleeps! Jill is a wonderful hostess and responded quickly to any questions or needs that I had. I would highly recommend Jill's listings. I will be back!!

Just right.

  • 4 of 5

Cozy little accommodation, just right for our weekend away at the Father Christmas festival. Very thankful for chocolates, mandarin oranges and wine which was provided on our arrival. Everything comfortable and clean.

Cute little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great little cottage, nice and quiet, perfect for a little private getaway for two ... Right on the doorstep to all Mahone Bay has offer. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely treat, fresh local bread, jam and some very tasty local wine .. Jill was very accommodating as we were traveling with our old faithful dog Bella and it's always a real treat when we take her along ... Perfect spot for any couple ... Jill Colin & Bella

Quaint and comfortable cabin

  • 4 of 5

This quaint little cabin is well equipped for a couple and in a great location in Mahone Bay -- very walkable to the main street and all of the attractions. Mahone Bay is also centrally located making it easy to visit Lunenburg, Chester, Blue Rocks, Bridgewater and more. We are cyclists and loved being able to ride all around Lunenburg county exploring -- very bike-friendly area!

The cabin itself has everything you need; we didn't need to go out for meals at all. There isn't a full oven, but there is a BBQ and a toaster oven so that worked out fine. The furniture is comfy, the cabin is well laid-out (and roomier than many Toronto condos!) and everything is supplied -- linens, towels, and even books. We were welcomed with a basket of treats, and the owner Jill was very accommodating and helpful.

The only downside was that it was very hot while we were there, and the cottage gets the afternoon sun so it got very warm inside. There was a small fan provided that helped. Also, this is Nova Scotia and that much heat for that long of a stretch was somewhat unusual so we weren't complaining as the weather was wonderful for bike touring and sightseeing!

I would stay here again if travelling in the area for sure!
