Featured in East Coast Living magazine, Summer 2010 issue.

Far Far Away is a Canada Select 4 Star guesthouse located directly between Chester and Mahone Bay; a ten minute drive in either direction and 25 minutes to the UNESCO World Heritage Town of Lunenburg. The guesthouse shares a driveway with an early 1900s home and has oodles of privacy in the backyard.

The guesthouse is quaint and suited ideally for a couple but can sleep three with a day bed in the spare room off the kitchen that serves as an office or second bedroom (this room has no closing door). The space is open concept with dark wood floors throughout and a contemporary colour palette of greys and white. The bathroom is modern and clean offering a stand up shower and complimentary bath products. Off the kitchen is a french door that leads to the backyard and large patio complete with outside furniture and BBQ. With the help of foliage and fencing the backyard offers a lot of privacy and gets all the morning and early afternoon sun — perfect for enjoying a first cup of coffee or morning yoga.

The guesthouse is furnished with original artwork by Barbara McLean.

Wifi is available on site as well as cable TV and DVD player. The kitchen is complete with fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, stove top espresso maker (locally roasted Fair Trade coffee is provided) and all the necessities for making a meal. Bedding, linens, beach towels, hair dryer, toilet tissue, hand soap, iron and ironing board are all available. If you are wondering about specific items, it’s best to ask when booking. Laundry services are available on the property.

Far Far Away is no mansion but sure to win you over.

The property directly connects to the provincial Rails to Trails hiking/cycling trail — two mountain bikes are provided.

The surrounding areas offer, live theatre, sailing, flea markets, whale watching tours, sea kayaking tours, white sand beaches, various farmers markets, horse and carriage rides, cafes, pubs, art galleries, golfing, spas (just 30 seconds to Oak Island Resort), and even on-site private wine tastings.
