About Chris Reardon

We love Mahone Bay which isn't just a town but a whole region and eco system. That's why we live full time just around the corner from Mahone Bay harbour. We work in Halifax when necessary but it's basically 50 minutes from here and the airport so no problem. Montreal, Toronto, Boston , New York are just an 1 1/2 hour jump so that's easy too.

Chris Reardon purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris Reardon chose Nova Scotia

We spend most of our time in Mahone Bay area when we're not traveling and it's such a great place to be that we wanted to share it with you and make you feel at home

What makes this house unique

Self contained, like a boutique hotel.........

Comfy cottage on the bay

  • 5 of 5

I see that Mahone Bay made the Spring 2017 issue of Lonely Planet, and this is the perfect place to stay in a perfect bayside cottage: 19th century on the outside, 21st on the inside. It's on Main Street, right across from the marina, with an easy walk to downtown. Perfect for day trips to Lunenburg, Digby Neck and Keji Nat'l Park.

Marvellous cottage in Mahone Bay

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we wanted - Chris is a very helpful owner, and this is a charming, comfortable cottage. The house is well appointed and stylish, perfect for cozy evenings. It is also a short walk along the bay to shopping & great food when you want to dine out. This is also a great location for touring the local area, whether you are planning a sail in the Lunenberg Harbour, to kayak in Cape LaHave, or photo shoots at Peggy's Cove.

Lovely cottage in beautiful Mahone Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Often, when you book things online, things are not as they appear. This is not the case with this charming cottage – it was exactly as advertised. Right on Main Street in beautiful Mahone Bay looking out over the marina, with all the necessities you would need for a vacation away. The owner, Chris, was very accessible and even popped in to ensure we had everything we needed and offered some touring advice. The cottage is an easy walk to great restaurants and shops. If my partner and I ever find ourselves in Nova Scotia again, we would definitely book this charming yellow cottage! Oh and we travel everywhere with our two small dogs and they loved it too!

A relaxing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having to fly around half the world and a bit from Dubai, this was a perfect retreat for our small German / Canadian family.

The house offers from the master bedroom in the 1st floor and the porch in front of the main room a magnificent view over the Bay & the incoming ships. It has a bedroom (15 sqm) with a queen-size bed, a small bathroom with shower, a 2nd smaller bedroom, a living/dining room (35 sqm) with table, chairs, kitchenette, an armchair and a couch. The little kitchen is fully furnished (coffee maker, microwave, cooker, dishes, coffeemaker, fridge, toaster etc) and we were provide with white & fresh towels and bed linen. You have free WLAN and TV, the latter in all types of languages.

There are traditional deck chairs and a little table right in front of your living room window - your own private outdoor space. You're right in the middle of village, but I could also do a morning run towards the rim of the village daily in no time.

Small restaurants, the Canadian national coffee maker Tim Horton and a supermarket are in walking distance, the car park right behind the house.

Chris the owner came by a couple of times to see if everything was ok, indeed a it was brilliant, relaxing and we hope to come back maybe next yet.

Thank you again for a great time in Mahone Bay
