Overview

Mahone Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Mahone Bay South Shore Nova Scotia attracts an intriguing and interesting audience, some passers by like to take a peaceful stroll through the town, others are fascinated by the sheer beauty of the flora & fauna some of us cannot resist the temptation to stay for a while.

Sheltering Blue Sky is nestled in the heart of this quaint and extremely colourful town. The owners have revived this old turn of the century house into a serene and exciting space, they welcome anybody who is interested in a stay to experience a truly sumptuous outdoor but most importantly indoor living space. An open plan concept unfolds as you walk through the house, each area has been carefully arranged to give the weary traveller the space they need to unwind, from a upstairs reading gallery, to a downstairs chill out lounge with additional open plan living and eating space. The kitchen has been completely remodeled and enjoys a bar and separate dining area.

The small garden very neatly formed and at the rear of the house lies the custard deck for those all import quiet glasses of something.

Sheltering Blue Sky is now ready for guests, the new stone floors are awaiting traffic and the deep lived in leather furnishings are finding their place.

Sheltering Blue Sky has a superking bedroom, a large three piece ensuite, one king and one queen bedroom, a large three piece guest bathroom. The upstairs gallery lounge has been designed for quiet time or nursing time, the downstairs chillout space boasts a 50in wall mounted digital TV, with stereo and ipod docking station. The main open plan lounge leads into kitchen and dining area. There is good sized utility room with the all important boot and cloak room, not forgetting a delightful downstairs washroom.

The rear custard deck designed for private BBQ's and outdoor chatter! A table and chairs are available for dining.

Comfort and convenience

  • 5 of 5

The location of this lovely retreat, steps away from restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops and pharmacies, is a big plus. The quality of linens, towels, squishy leather sofas etc was wonderful.

The house has no view to speak of,but one can seek out nearby beaches and ocean drives to compensate.

My family could not have been more pleased. Sheltering Blue Sky is a little gem.

Wonderful stay at Sheltering Blue Sky

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a stay at Sheltering Blue Sky with my husband and four kids, aged 11 to 2. We had a wonderful time.

The home was as lovely as the photos suggest. The owners have done a fantastic job restoring the property. The home was spacious and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The beds were comfortable, the linens high quality, the furniture also very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, including with pantry items.

Rob, the property manager, was very nice and helpful. He even managed to arrange babysitting for us for one night.

The home is well located in Mahone Bay - a 30 second walk to Main Street and to groceries, restaurants and the like. We enjoyed Jo-Anne's Deli a lot - they had great produce and their food was fantastic. The owners left a list of places they recommend and though we did not try all of them, those that we did try were very good. We walked everywhere in Mahone Bay but a car is needed to explore the South Shore more fully.

Mahone Bay was a great spot from which to explore the South Shore. We went to Peggy's Cove (lovely, not the overdone tourist trap we feared), Lunenburg, nearby beaches, and trips on the water, including to see the puffins and fish on Risky Business (out of Mahone Bay) and a sailing trip around Lunenburg harbour. So much to do! Mahone Bay itself is a beautiful little town, and has lots of restaurants and shops.

The owners were great to deal with, patiently answered our questions and were very helpful.

I would highly recommend staying at this home.
