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 Mahone Bay

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.

Beautiful View of Mahone Bay

  • 5 of 5

While we only stayed here one night and the weather was cloudy and rainy, the view of Mahone Bay and the location was beautiful. The home has plenty of room, well stocked kitchen and the beds were comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Spectacular location

  • 4 of 5

You really could not get a better view than that from the downstairs windows, and if you get to choose the master bedroom, then it's wonderful to wake up to the ever-changing vista! The property is an easy half hour walk into Mahone Bay, which makes it great if you want to go out for a drink and not drive. There is a taxi but it's based in Lunenberg so you would need to book in advance! The house itself is roomy, clean and comfortable, although could do with a bit of upgrading, and the kitchen could be a bit better stocked (perhaps more water/beer glasses, and sauce-pans). However, there really is nothing which would spoil your stay. There is plenty of seating in both the dining and seating areas to take advantage of the views. The garden is also wonderful, full and lush with beautifully fragranced planting. And it would have been lovely to take advantage of the chairs on the dock on an evening, had the weather been a bit kinder! It turns out though, that watching the storms roll in is much better than TV anytime.

Are you looking for a stunning view to just sit and relax?

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for our annual girls getaway spring vacation. With an amazing view of Mahone Bay and lots and lots of activities nearby to do, this home was a great choice. There was plenty of room for 8 of us to sleep, eat and entertain. The grounds are beautiful and while it was very chilly while we were there we did manage to sit outside on the front deck and take in the stunning view. It's an easy walk into the beautiful town of Mahone Bay and a very short drive to Lunenburg where there are many shops and lots and lots of history. We loved this spot!!

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
