About Anne Wagner

Life-long Halifax resident with passion for weekend country life and outdoor living. It was always our dream to have a piece of Mahone Bay on the south shore of NS which is a only 50 minute drive from the city of Halifax.

Anne Wagner purchased this house in 2007

Why Anne Wagner chose Nova Scotia

We love this property for its natural beauty, wild life and charm, its spectacular ocean views and close proximity to all that the town of beautiful Mahone Bay has to offer. This 38 acre property is located 1.5 km from the town, and offers private nature trails and biking trails which meander down to a large sand bottomed lake at the back of the property. The front of the property overlooks the ocean and has a large warf where you can launch your boat, kayak, swim, or simply sit on the Adirondack chairs and watch various boats (including the Bluenose) sail by. We are 2 km away from world-class award winning restaurants and a 15 km drive to historical Lunenburg. The renowned Lunenburg Yacht club is 12 km away and offers 1, 2 or 4 week sailing lessons for kids/teens of all sailing levels. Osprey Golf 18 hole golf course is 10 km away. A supermarket , pub, four great restaurants , gift shops, and tennis courts are located in the town, so we have all the amenities of city living, yet have the benefits of quiet and unspoiled beauty of rural living.

What makes this house unique

2 km away from the heart of Mahone Bay and its award-winning restaurants and shops.Short drive to historical Lunenburg. Free use of kayaks and bikes during your stay. 50 minute drive to the city. 50 minute drive to Halifax International Airport. A family of pheasants have made our property their home over the last number of years. Frogs and ducks are regular visitors to the three ponds found on the property. This property has also hosted weddings.

Outstanding view and location

  • 4 of 5

We two couples stayed here and loved the morning sunrise and eve sunset views. The house has plenty of room and beds for 5 couples. One of the queen beds and linens is quality. Perhaps also the 2 twins. I'm not a fan of lumpy beds that have egg crates added to them with the sheets not fitting which was the case with our queen bed that we slept in. The two queens, one in basement and other in bunkhouse are better suited for warmer summer months.The home was clean enough but not perfect. There is a large kitchen and also dining table with a large outside deck table. The check in time is 4 pm firm

The property was perfect. The home was clean and bright and the views were spectacular. I can not wait until next year to return. The hosts were most gracious and accommodating.

Comfort and Joy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early August - five adults and three children. Plenty of space and bathrooms for all. The furnishings, kitchen appliances/utensils and beds are all top notch. The view is fabulous, all within walking distance of the tiny perfect NS town of Mahone Bay. Easy drive into Halifax or even bike ride into Lunenburg. The owner is also the neighbour who is close enough to be helpful yet far enough for privacy. The dock on the bay offers easy access to swimming or kayaking yet not close enough to be an issue with children. Thanks Ann for a memorable stay!

Beautiful Property on the Coast

  • 5 of 5

Staying here provided me with everything I needed while staying in Nova Scotia! The property itself is beautiful and comfortable, pairing this with the amazing view, and handy location, makes the stay what can only be described as wonderful. Having a house so close to beautiful beaches as well as local towns, makes sure that you truly get to experience Nova Scotia life in as many ways as possible. To top it off, staying there with other people did not feel cramped, it was the perfect size to house us all. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous property by the coast!

Très agréable séjour à Mahone Bay

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison, beaucoup d'espace autant à l'intérieur (4 chambres) qu'à l'extérieur (très grand terrain). Nous étions 2 adultes et 4 enfants et tout le monde s'y est senti très bien. La maison était propre et disposait de tout ce dont nous pouvions avoir besoin. L'accueil a été très chaleureux. Les kayaks ont fait le bonheur de tous. La vue sur la baie était à couper le souffle. Nous avons vraiment beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à Mahone Bay.
