Pear Tree Cottage is right in the heart of Mahone Bay. In a quiet area and only minutes from local shops and restaurants.
'Mahone Bay is both a postcard-perfect maritime town and an ideal base for exploring the stretch of coastline known as the South Shore.' (Fodor's Travel Wire). Named one of Canada's best small-town downtowns by Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine, Mahone Bay is also considered by many as one of the most beautiful towns in Canada.
Situated on a bay of more than 100 islands, our Nova Scotian town, which the New York Times calls 'pretty as a picture', is a treasury of history, culture and 19th century architecture. The charming main street hosts an assortment of art galleries, specialty shops and living museums - all within an easy stroll.
Romantic restaurants, comfortable small inns, golfing and a full service spa complement the serenity and natural beauty of Mahone Bay to make this a very special vacation destination. Hike or cross-country ski the miles of trails; sail or kayak among the islands or simply relax and enjoy the view!
The Mahone Bay area is treasured for its local artists and craftspeople, eclectic shops, wonderful restaurants, diverse accommodations, great golf, luxurious spas and convention facilities. Our compact town centre makes it easy to get around on foot. The gem of Mahone Bay's historic setting is the beautiful harbour graced by three churches – the most photographed churches in Canada!
Don't be surprised to have complete strangers greet you with a warm 'hello' or 'good afternoon' as you stroll down our streets. The residents of our small town are uniquely friendly and helpful to visitors. So kick back, relax and stay awhile, you'll feel like you've come home.
