The SpaceYour room has an amazing 25 km view of the Bay with a private deck and shiny, bright bathroom next door. Our three storey house was completed a year ago and has warm terrazza floors, cedar beams and a big modern kitchen. It is set in 30 acres of woodland but is also convenient for Lunenberg and Mahone Bay (40 minutes), Peggy's Cove (20minutes), Halifax (25 minutes), Wolfville (50minutes). Locally, we have farmers markets, a shopping area and several colourful cafes that serve lunch and coffee. There are also good hiking trails and bikes for hire. A local bus goes to Halifax, but public transport is limited. We both love to meet new people and cook so may sometimes be able to offer supper and help yourself breakfast. I work as an acupuncturist in an office at the bottom of our driveway, 10 minutes walk away and Colin is usually out doing something practical like fishing, building or gardening. If you like peace and quiet but easy access to people and places then this is the place for you.
