Holiday Rental House
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 guest house 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. The space is open concept with dark wood floors throughout and a contemporary colour palette of greys and white. The bathroom is completely new and offers a stand up shower and complimentary Aveda bath products. Off the kitchen is a french door that leads to the backyard and large patio complete with outside furniture and B...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.

Off the kitchen is a french door that leads to the backyard and large patio complete with outside furniture and BBQ bar. 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. A welcome package awaits your arrival; 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 (Fair Trade espresso and coffee provided) and all the necessities for making a meal — although I'm not sure who plans on cooking during their vacation. Bedding, linens, beach towels, toilet tissue, hand soap, iron and ironing board are available. If you are wondering about specific items, it's best to ask when booking. Complimentary laundry services area available onsite and mid-stay cleanings are available for an added fee. 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 with 4 bicycles available.More

About the neighbourhood
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 2minutes seconds from Atlantica Oak Island Resort). Our location allows you to feel far enough away to escape, yet you're only 10 minutes away from everything.
Getting around
It's most convenient to rent a car as there is not public transportation through rural Nova Scotia. You can cover a lot of grounds by bicycle if you are a proficient cyclist. The guesthouse offers 4 bikes and there is access to a provincial trail directly behind the property.
