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 Mahone Bay

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.........

Perfect Mahone Bay Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage on Main was the perfect blend of location, style and functionality. A funky yellow character cottage on the waterfront, decorated with mid-century and 19th century flair. Great kitchen, big bathroom, turquoise painted bedroom floor, Italian reading lamps - it's all there!! And situated in beautiful Mahone Bay. What more could you want! We loved it and would highly recommend.

Great place for sailors

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for two weeks during an extended sailing trip in September, 2017. Since it is right across the street from the Civic Marina it was very convenient for us. Everything you need for supplies - groceries, coffee, restaurants, fuel, booze - are within walking distance. The home is very clean and well supplied for guests. Chris Reardon was an outstanding host. I highly recommend this rental.

The cutest house on main street

  • 5 of 5

Mahone Bay is known for their colorful houses and this is right in line and is so well thought out and equipped that I can't imagine any place better to stay. The location - right across the marina offers lots to see (great view of the three churches) and with in a short walking distance from everything you need - coffee, grocery, restaurants, shops, ice cream. The house is amazing - high end appliances and finishes. Owner was very responsive and we enjoyed our stay in this magical area.

The house was extremely comfortable and had everything that was required to ensure that we experienced an excellent vacation. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental and the town of Mahone Bay! Visit and you will fall in love with the town and its residents.

Nice house in noisy location

  • 3 of 5

Overall we liked the house. It was well appointed in a good location. We also liked having a washer/dryer. The street was noisy, however, particularly being across from the public marina where construction was occurring. The landlord did not provide very complete information about where to find towels, supplies, etc. It would have been much easier if he had provided a binder with maps, etc.

Owner's Response: The town has been upgrading it's infrastructure and unfortunately work is being done in the busy summer months but the good news is better service for the community. Fresh towels and supplies are laid out in the facilities for all to see with a great washer dryer system which is hard to miss and the built in drawers contain plenty of extra everything for any need !

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.
