What you will love about this home
We have just built our holiday home on Heckman’s Island on the scenic and historic South Shore of Nova Scotia. The island is linked to the mainland by a bridge, and just 10 minutes drive from the town of Lunenburg (UNESCO World Heritage Site) , and one and a half hours from the Halifax international airport. The house has water frontage on Lunenburg Back Harbour, with a gravel beach, private wharf and deep water anchorage. Bikes, a row boat and kayaks are available providing great access to superb sea kayaking right from the doorstep. The house is bright and sunny with large decks on three sides and open plan living. The lounge, dining room and two bedrooms upstairs are complemented with a separate bedroom, bathroom and lounge downstairs. The boathouse at the edge of the water contains an additional two bunks. Barbecuing or lobster boils on the deck, or grilling local planked salmon on an open fire are great ways to finish the day.

Heckman’s Island is on the south side of Mahone Bay; reportedly home to 360 islands. For more than 150 years the bay has been a vacation destination for Canadians and visiting Americans. The heritage town of Lunenburg, home of the Bluenose, is just 10 minutes away, while Chester and Mahone Bay are within a half hour drive, . As one of the first areas to be settled in North America Nova Scotia is steeped in history, from the historic citadel port city of Halifax to the home of the fleets of schooners that fished the offshore banks. The Bay of Fundy, Kejimkujik National Park, and The Annapolis Valley are all within a hour and a half drive. For more information go to http://www.novascotia.com/about-nova-scotia/order-travel-guide
