Wonderful Vacation Spot!
We loved our stay at Far, Far Away cottage. It has everything you need for 2-3 people. They even provide very nice bikes to use and there is a trail just outside of the property.
We enjoyed Halifax, Peggy’s Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, The Ovens Natural Park.
In Chester the Seaside Shanty had the best Lobster Seafood Chowder! The fall colors were spectacular!
I will recommend Far, Far Away to all my friends!
A Sweetheart of a Place
Far Far Away Guesthouse is comfortable, cozy and uniquely styled- we enjoyed the decor and artwork. Jay was sweet to leave us a card and bottle of wine as I mentioned it was our anniversary. He was easy to communicate with, very laid back, and overall the perfect host.
The cottage is well stocked with extras and some basic food supplies- coffee, sugar, etc, so there is very little one would need to run to the store to get. Close to Mahone Bay (Mug & Anchor restaurant, Jennifer's Bakery are MUSTS) and Chester Basin, (The Galley was wonderful/romantic). The Chester Connector trail goes over the Gold River and along the old train route- we found the area breathtaking. The beauty of this spot is it's out-of-the-way location, while being close to everything one comes to Nova Scotia to see.
Caveats: The bathroom is quite cramped, but we managed. The water pump was so loud I didn't wish to flush the toilet or take an early morning shower because I didn't wish to awaken my partner. But I wouldn't hestitate to come back to visit again- I'd just bring earplugs for my honey.
It fit with our style of traveling- a base camp for our explorations. It's less than an hour from Ross Farm Museum up Route 12, Martock (OnTree Park) up route 14 and Halifax, up highway 103.
A forever traveller
Our stay at the Far Far Away Guesthouse was fantastic! It was home for four nights and we were quite happy with every minute. The listing description was extremely accurate, including the photos. It's as cute and cozy as it looks and very convenient for location. My dad golfed to his heart's content while I hit the beach and nearby Lunenburg. The amenities were exceptional and helped to make our stay even more comfortable! I hadn't ridden a bike for a very long time, but being close to the Confederation Bike Trail made it (relatively) painless! ;) The owner is super friendly, helpful, and eager to please. I would (and will) highly recommend this property to friends and family... especially if you plan on 'hanging around' for more than a few days!
Planned on staying Friday and Saturday nights. Jay double booked by mistake but was very apologetic about it. He arranged a room for us at the Marina close by which was great. He was very nice and came by to meet us, we even got to meet his sweet dog Lulu. The place was comfortable and great temperature. Air conditioning in the bedroom made for a great sleep. About 8 mins to Mahone Bay or Chester where there are great places to eat. He has thought of everything you could need for a home away from home. Love the decor. Overall, had a great stay.
A wonderful two week stay.
We stayed at Far Far Away for 2 weeks in August. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The house is very comfortable. We enjoyed the deck where we could watch the hummingbirds in the morning. The stars are magnificent from the deck as well. The bike trails are fun and Jay has provided very nice bicycles for use. It was a great base to explore the Mahone Bay and St. Margaret's Bay areas. The markets in Chester, Lunenberg and Mahone Bay are fun places for fresh vegetables, fish and baked goods.
The house is very clean. The kitchen is well equipped for simple meals however the propane gas grill provided made meal prep easy for us.
Jay was very knowledgeable of the area and very responsive to questions we had. I would recommend Far Far Away to anyone who is interested in exploring the area by car, by foot or by bicycle.
The Perfect Home Away from Home
After a 4-day very social conference in Halifax I was looking to escape somewhere quiet before work took me to Quebec. This guesthouse was the perfect choice for my two day getaway. The amenities were perfect in this well maintained quaint guesthouse - everything you need or want to feel at home, tucked away in Chester.
The trails nearby were lovely and it was close proximity to Mahone Bay, Chester and Lunenburg if you wanted to escape for some great food (Salt Shaker Deli and Mateus Bistro) and a quaint seaside experience.
Owner was friendly and helpful - with discounts and recommendations on nearby haunts.
Would definitely return!
