The Garden Hideaway
Heart’s Desire B&B is situated in a desirable location overlooking the Bay in the picturesque waterside town of Mahone Bay on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. As well as a great view, with the bay literally across the road, Heart’s Desire is in easy walking distance of the local pubs, many great cafes and restaurants, the supermarket, museum, art galleries and excellent shops. We originally visited the B&B from the UK as tourists. By the end of our short stay we had fallen in love not only with Heart’s Desire but also with the friendly town and its thriving all year-round community.
Most of the B&B business is between May and October. However, December’s Father Christmas Festival and the new Lobster Festival in February present opportunities to extend further, if desired. In fact, South Shore Tourism are always looking for ways to make this part of Nova Scotia an all-year-round destination.
We have been running Heart’s Desire for the past 10 of its 30 years during which time we have renovated, renewed, and updated the house and the Garden Hideaway – a separate, delightful cottage in the rear garden. The Hideaway accommodates two guests and the letting rooms within the house mean we have a total of up to nine guests a night. There is on-site parking for up to five vehicles.
The three in-house rooms are on the second floor and all have private bathrooms, two of which are en-suite. There is also a second-floor guest lounge, as well as a tv lounge and breakfast dining room on the first floor - where the kitchen, laundry and comfortable owner’s quarters are also situated. The spacious front veranda is a popular place for guests to relax watching the activity on and over the Bay, where osprey and eagles are often seen.
In the rear garden, behind the Garden Hideaway, there is another building with great potential. Currently used for storage and as a workshop, it could, for example, be turned into another letting space or an artist’s studio.
Running Heart’s Desire B&B has been an enjoyable experience as we have met interesting and delightful people from different countries all around the world. Many of these guests have returned year after year. We have loved every minute here and are certain the next owners of this rewarding business will do so too.
