About Maureen Dorey

We are a middle age couple who have raised 2 sons in Mahone Bay and have been married for 35 years. Barry has lived in the area all his life and Maureen is a come from away who fell in love with the South Shore way of life long before she met Barry.

Maureen Dorey purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Maureen Dorey chose Nova Scotia

This house was built in the late 1950's. We love the character and have tried to preserve this as we did our renovations. The location is on a narrow lane which is not far from the downtown area but far enough that it is in a quiet location.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is well laid out and very cozy. It has a private back yard and you can hear the church bells ringing in town on Sunday morning.

Quiet cottage right in town.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this lovingly restored cottage. It was on a quiet street but within walking distance of most everything in Mahone Bay. The village itself is charming. We would definitely stay here again as it was spacious with everything we needed.

Charming Cherry Lane Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We consider ourselves very lucky indeed to have found such a hidden gem in Mahone Bay. Maureen and Barry have done a wonderful job of creating a comfortable home away from home for their very lucky guests. The cottage was immaculate and well stocked with all the essentials of housekeeping. Everything about this well situated Cherry Lane cottage is charming and inviting and we thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Bay and the surrounding area. Being able to walk to all the beautiful shops and restaurants was delightful! Maureen and Barry made us feel very welcome and they made sure that all our needs were met and then some. We will definitely recommend this rental property to friends and family looking for a comfortable base while exploring the south coast towns and villages. Wonderful to meet you both and to have the pleasure of residing in your lovely cottage.

Great home base

  • 5 of 5

Barry welcomed us to check into the cottage. This little home is in a great location in Mahone Bay. You can walk to anyplace in town and easy access to the highway. Quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is large and very well equipped. Lots of dishes, pots and pans and utensils. The dishwasher is handy when you are on vacation. There is also a washer/dryer but we did not use it. Very convenient to have two washrooms. We did a lot of sightseeing along the South Shore of Nova Scotia and went kayaking twice. East Coast Outfitters at Lower Prospect and Pleasant Paddling at Blue Rocks and both were superb.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jennifer. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. Kayaking is very popular and nice islands to explore. Sailboating is also popular. Every year they have sailboat racing during Chester race week. Lots of colourful sailboats sail in competition along Mahone Bay.

Charming cottage with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is located on a quiet lane in the picturesque village of Mahone Bay. It is within easy walking distance of town centre. Mahone Bay is strategically located for drivers who wish to explore the South Shore and Halifax is easily accessible on a main highway. We arrived late in the evening, but Maureen was at the cottage waiting for us with the porch light shining as a welcoming beacon. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations, as the spic-and-span cottage has everything visitors will need. I have booked vacation properties abroad through VRBO, and this one ranks right up there with the best.

Lovely cottage with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Very clean and comfortable. Close to the town and central to visit south shore. Owners are great to deal with. I would certainly go back on another holiday.

Mahone Bay is a quaint Nova Scotia Town on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Fishing has been our livelyhood in the past and still is a source of income for some. Pirates use to come into our Bay and there is a story about the Privateer ship, the Young Teaser that people of Mahone Bay love to tell. There are boaters dotting our bay, including sailboats, yachts, houseboats which create a backdrop for a breathtaking picture over the bay. We have many shops, cafes and restaurants some overlooking the Bay and of course the Mug and Anchor Pub. Our festivals and events include the Pirate Festival and Regetta Aug. 2 to 5, Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair October 4 - 6, 2013 as well as the Father Christmas Festival November 29th to December 8. You are never too far from the sea in Mahone Bay and sandy beaches with surf are a short drive.
