This is the second summer that we stay at the cottages and we absolutely love them. They come with all your simple amenities such as coffee maker, cutlery, plates, BBQ,cups,toaster, lots of towels, hair dryer shampoo and soap dispenser to name a few.
The rooms are super clean and very well maintained. Most are newly renovated and the atmosphere is so nice and crisp.
We went 5 people, 3 adults and 2 kids and we had lots of room and everyone was comfortable.

The pool was well maintained and warm. The kids loved it. They even had toys for them to use in the pool.

There is also a little playset for the kids with swings and a slide, it was right outside out cottage towards the back which was awesome because they could access it safely!
Lots of grass to play games on the kids played soccer.

You have access to the dock across the street which has a spot to sit and enjoy a drink while taking in the breathtaking views of sails boats in the harbour. The kids loved sticking their feet in the water from the floating dock. We seen some people enjoying a swim in the harbour too.

The vibe here is so laid back and chill It's something you should definitely experience and it's a beautiful spot .
Kate one of the owners is awesome. She always stops to chat for a minute and is very welcoming and thoughful when it comes to her guests!

If you get a chance to stay here don't miss out!

This will be our vacationing spot for many years to come

Can't say enough about this fabulous little gem. The one bedroom cottage was perfect for two friends - it even came with coffee and coffee filters! Loved using the pool and sitting on the dock watching the sky. Excellent value.

Six of us celebrated our sixtieth birthday at Anchorage House. What a perfect house for a group. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom with rooms to spare. We were all so impressed with how clean the entire house was. The kitchen was just fabulous with all kinds of space and a speedy dishwasher. Made use of the hot tub but didn’t get around to using the sauna or the pool. When it rained we Spent time on the veranda drinking wine and enjoying the spectacular view. We are a group of childhood friends and we could not have picked a better place to spend quality time together. And Kate was very easy to get hold of and warm and friendly to deal with.

We stayed here in July 2013 and again in August 2014. The location is perfect for us. The cottages are only a 30 minute drive into Halifax so it was easy for us to visit the family we have living in Halifax every day. The cottages were clean and equipped with everything we needed. When we were there in August, there was a water advisory (because of water quality issues) and we couldn't drink the tap water, but the owner provided bottled water so we didn't find any inconvenience at all.

The only complaint I have is that we couldn't open the windows in our cottage because the garbage dumpster was close to our cottage and the breeze blew the smell of the garbage our direction. Unfortunately the bad smell was pretty much constant and I didn't get a chance to mention it to the owner. Despite that, I would stay here again, but would request a cottage that's not downwind from the dumpster.

You will not find a better place to stay for 10-15 people in Nova Scotia than the Anchorage house. Wow! Kate and the staff here provide an amazing place to relax and enjoy group times together. Your close to lots of places to go and things to do, fabulous walks and the view is spectacular. No need to even worry about the weather here. It’s always a great spot rain or shine!

Stayed in a cottage for 2 nights at Anchorage cottages. Let me start out by saying, the location is amazing. Right beside the bay and close to everything you need. The girl at the front desk (I forget her name) was absolutely incredible to deal with and got us everything we needed.

The cottage was clean but was beginning to slightly show its age. I feel like the prices were a bit high but not outrageous. We were also told that Hubbards barn was "within walking distance" which is definitely not the case. Overall a pretty good stay. Thank you.

Stayed here 4 nights. Cottage was very clean. Check in quick and the owner is there all the time if you need anything. Could use larger fridge in unit and I feel it is time for new firmer mattress. Older tv but not there to really watch tv other than catch the news ( owner mentioned they are being replaced with flat screens). BBQ right on deck outside is great. Nice small pool on the grounds. Walking distance to the Shore club ten minutes up the road. Would stay again.

Hello, Thank for such a thoughtful review. We're aware of the fridges conditions- thanks for further insights :). I agree, a larger fridge would be more useful for storing food & drink. Glad you enjoyed the grounds and local attractions. Please think of a for the future ! Kindest Regards, Kate

Aug. 25/13 - We left the cottage 1.5 days early of a 1wk. vacation. Our 2 bedroom cottage had no screen door and the glass panel on the steel door had no screen having to leave the door open for fresh air. In each of the bedrooms, sleeping five people (2 children) there were no dressers, only desks! The beds were not overly comfortable and mattresses should be replaced! The freezer dripped water unto the food on the lower shelves of the fridge. Mid week we reported the "on" button in the jet tub wasn't working - we heard from no one! The facility owned a dock across the street but it was not suitable for swimming. There are beautiful beaches within 5-10 min. drive! The property is within 30 min. of Halifax. We would not recommend this property!

Thanks for your observations, the issues described have been taken into consideration, and where we can, we will be making changes. Some things we have no control over, people do swim off our dock, however it is not always a good spot so we put in the inground heated pool to compensate. The style of dresser is the preferred as it provides drawers for clothing as well as a desk for personal computers etc. We welcome all comments and invite our guests to contact us directly in addition to posting on Trip Advisor.

This was such a great start to our family vacation. The cottages are small and cute with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The pool is excellent for the kids there is also a small play structure towards the back of the property. The location is prime, Queensland beach is only a 5 minute drive, close to a few small shops and grocery stores. The people who run this place are SUPER friendly and want you to enjoy your stay add much as possible. Don't need to say much more then we will recommend this lovely spot to others and also return as guests in the future.

Can you swim off the wharf? (at our own risk, obviously!)
Answer from Anchorage H
Queensland, Canada4 contributions2 helpful votes
Hello there, You can swim off the dock at your own risk. Please note its is very rocky, and at low tide jumping may be hazardous . As the others have previously stated, there's beautiful near by locations to swim, including our pool :)!

The cottages are roughly 15-20 minutes from Chester & Mahone Bay. There are 2 bedroom cottages with sofa beds for extra guests. Your best to check with them directly. Amazing food on the waterfront down the road (within walking distance) at the Dauphinee Inn.I suggest checking out the area online.

Hello, The bay is directly across from the property. Most of the cottages can see the water, but Bayswater Cottage has the best view.
