Don’t worry if you can’t make that weekend – the scarecrows will be out, weather permitting, for a week or two afterwards. If you’re planning a few days in the area we have our year round special offer – spend three or more nights and get a discount of $10 per night off the regular room rate.

Spring is here!

At last, all the snow has gone and the garden is showing signs of spring with lots of green shoots and the forsythia is in full bloom! We’ve been busy the last month and the renovations works and decorating are in the final stages.

The Garden Hideaway now has it’s own private deck complete with barbecue and the Garden Room has a new floor both in the bedroom and the balcony. We are just putting the finishing touches to both projects and will post new photos both on the website and Facebook when done. Shops and restaurants in Mahone Bay are now fully open and the boats are starting to go back in the water.
