About Maureen Dorey

We are a middle age couple who have raised 2 sons in Mahone Bay and have been married for 37 years. Barry has lived in the area all his life and Maureen is a come from away who fell in love with the South Shore way of life long before she met Barry.

Maureen Dorey purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Maureen Dorey chose Mahone Bay

This house was built in the late 1950's. Mahone Bay is renowned for it boatbuilding heritage and many past boatbuilders have built their houses in Mahone Bay with character and detail as they built their wooden boats. We love the character and have tried to preserve this as we did our renovations. The location is on a narrow lane which is not far from the downtown area but far enough that it is in a quiet location.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is well laid out and very cozy. It has a private back yard and you can hear the church bells ringing in town on Sunday morning.

Wonderful stay in Mahone Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Mahone Bay at the Cherry Lane cottage. The cottage is spacious, well equipped with everything you could possibly need and beautifully decorated. Plenty of room for our family of four (two teenage boys). Perfect location on a quiet lane but one block from the water and all the shops and galleries. Will definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends!

Perfect location for getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Don't worry if you forgot to pack something for your stay, as I am sure you will find what you need in the cottage. Attention to detail was definitely done when they set up the cottage. The location was quite and within walking distance to the Main street and also quick drives to other local attractions. My daughter and I would like to thank you again for the hospitality. :) We will be suggesting it to anyone who is planning on going to that area.

Mahone Bay is a quaint Nova Scotia Town on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Fishing has been our livelyhood in the past and still is a source of income for some. Pirates use to come into our Bay and there is a story about the Privateer ship, the Young Teaser that people of Mahone Bay love to tell. There are boaters dotting our bay, including sailboats, yachts, houseboats which create a backdrop for a breathtaking picture over the bay. We have many shops, cafes and restaurants some overlooking the Bay and of course the Mug and Anchor Pub. Our festivals and events include the Pirate Festival and Regetta Aug. 2 to 5, Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair October 4 - 6, 2013 as well as the Father Christmas Festival November 29th to December 8. You are never too far from the sea in Mahone Bay and sandy beaches with surf are a short drive.
