“Wonderful stay not too far from Mahone Bay”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

This house was a very cozy and comfortable base for our travels around Mahone Bay. When we first arrived we found it it was farther from Mahone Bay than we had anticipated, but with each trip to Mahone Bay the drive seemed shorter! We traveled with our four dogs, so we are extremely grateful to Jay for welcoming us and our brood. The house is lovely, clean, and comfortable. The TV was an added bonus -- the only house of three we stayed at during our trip that had a TV! The setting is very peaceful and private, and afforded ample space for walking our dogs. The location allowed us to explore Mahone Bay and Lunenburg with ease, and even a trip to Liverpool was not too far. This house served our needs perfectly!

Liked best: I liked the fact that the 2nd bedroom, while very small, was far enough away from the main bedroom that I could escape my husband's snoring!
Liked least: The shower is small -- but the water is hot and the pressure is good.

“Perfect Cottage for Our Family”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Far Far Away Guesthouse was exactly what my family of three needed. It was far enough away from the hustle & bustle of the city, and a close drive to attractions. My 5 year old loved his bedroom and gave us zero problems about sleeping in a strange place. Everything that you need is included (just pick up a few groceries and you're set).

Jay and his family are excellent hosts. Within moments of booking I received a welcome e-mail from Jay. Whenever I had a question, he would respond immediately.

The location is great if you want to drive to Lunenberg, Mahone Bay, Peggy's Cove, or several beaches.

If we're ever fortunate enough to return to Nova Scotia, we would gladly come back to the Far Far Away Guesthouse.

PS - if it's important to you; the WiFi was fast and has a strong signal!

“Peaceful, comfortable cottage, great quiet getaway.”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a very well equipped cottage. Just bring groceries and you're all set. Your host, Jay is super, thinks of everything. There's a comfy master bedroom, small office/single bedroom and a sleep sofa in the living room. Plenty of space for 2 -3 people. Nice deck off the kitchen, cool shade trees and good privacy. It is about 5 minutes from the famous Oak Island, and about 5 miles from the picturesque town of Mahone Bay. There you'll find nice people, great food and lots of small shops with some super crafts such as clothing and pewter. The cottage has heat and AC, very comfortable.

“What a Wonderful quaint fully equiped cottage!”

My husband and I stayed with our 2 dogs Freya and Baldur here in December 2013. Jay really knows how to make sure every accommodation is met. It was like being in a 5 star NYC hotel in a quaint cottage near gorgeous Mahone Bay. THAT makes it BETTER than any 5 star NYC hotel! The bed is absolutely comfy, everything is well laid out and the smallest of things are there Shampoo, conditioner, hand lotions, flashlight, rubberbands,and so many things no one else has ever thought of having in a rental, he thought of every thing. We were greeted by a beautiful basket of wine and teas and coffee and since t was close to Christmas a woodland set of trees in white lights, not over states just perfect. There is a wonderful trail behind the house, the backyard faces the trail but still remains private. I can't say enough about this place, it's a small place packed with lots of goodies. Thanks Jay for your excellent hospitality and for sharing your home with us!
