The House

Heart’s Desire Bed & Breakfast is located in a Classic Four Square Home, overlooking Mahone Bay. It was built in 1922 for a local school teacher, Vera Mason. We are only the forth owners of the house and a lot of the original woodwork and character of the home has been maintained throughout the years. The house has been a bed and breakfast for over 20 years and we believe it is named after a small fishing village in New Foundland.

As well are our lovely large veranda overlooking the Bay guests are welcome to make use of either of our two lounges and the dining room. There is free wi-fi access throughout the house – including the veranda.

The Veranda

We invite you to sit on our veranda and partake in one of our favourite pastimes of watching the boats and wildlife out on the bay.



The Lounges

Our main lounge just off the hall has a t.v.( with cable) and a d.v.d. player for our guest’s use. During the colder months this is where you can cozy up to our lovely warm stove. Relax in comfort!

The upstairs lounge is a perfect place to read, play cards & games – or simply watch the activity out on the Bay. This is also where we offer early morning tea or coffee to guests before they venture downstairs for breakfast.
