Right on the main street of one of the loveliest towns in the province! An easy walk to all the little stores, some lovely restaurants & the 3 churches. We happened to be there just after their annual scarecrow festival...what a delight!!!!
And our breakfast....after coffee waiting for us just outside our room...was delicious!!!! Homemade with obvious love
Thank goddessoflacrosse

We stayed here for 2 nights on our first trip to Canada. Denise and John were so friendly and welcoming, with a great sense of humour. The house is peaceful, in a lovely setting. Breakfast was superb, both the quality and the quantity. Denise also provided some lovely gluten free treats for me, which was much appreciated. Denise is very knowledgeable about scenic drives and she gave us plenty of suggestions for places to visit. Denise and John are so hospitable, and we felt like old friends by the time we left - we hope to return one day.

Arrived in Mahone Bay late, and John stayed up to greet us and helped us get our dinner in before the kitchens close in Mahone Bay for the night (about 10:00pm). Denise was extremely knowledgeable about the little-known beaches and trails around town. The room is cozy, comfortable, and felt like home! Breakfast was a delight - Scones and cakes, hot cooked breakfast, and fresh squeezed juices. Location was amazing. It is right across from the waterfront and walking distance from the small downtown area, and a fifteen-minute drive from busy Lunenburg. We were sad to leave after only two nights. Thank you for having us in your lovely home.
Thank Wendy T

This lovely gem was discovered by accident on our 6 week travel. With no reservation we tripped over a vacancy sign and enquired. A late cancellation had opened up a room and we immediately took it. John showed us around and made some recommendations for our visit to the town. The property is across the street from the bay and has a lovely relaxing view of the water, from a wrap around veranda. Breakfast was delicious and served pleasantly by Denise and John. terrific conversation by the three couples and the hosts. We stayed in approximately 16 B and Bs during this trip and Hearts Desire is in our top three.

Mahone Bay was our favourite town between Halifax and Lunenburg. Hearts Desire is a clean, comfortable home with pretty porches and a lovely garden. Right in downtown Mahone Bay - everything is an easy walk. John & Denise are fun, friendly and helpful hosts. Food is tasty, everything is very clean and they know a lot of great places to see and fun ways to get there. We stayed in the Bay View room and the separate washroom was no problem. Morning tea or coffee upstairs to ease our 4 hour time change was wonderful before we headed down for a delicious, fresh breakfast that included home made and local items. We'll be back if we come to NS again. Thanks J & D - we'll be sending you a little TY from the West soon!!! xo
