Mahone Bay - A Treasure Since 1754
The Mahone Bay Home and Garden Tour is hosted by and in support of The Mahone Bay Founders Society. The Society is dedicated to the stewardship of our area heritage and operates the Mahone Bay Settlers Museum, a vibrant community based organization, serving and engaging residents and visitors through the preservation and celebration of our unique history and culture.
Spirit of the Season
We invite you to come and truly embrace the art of living.The colours of Main Street, with an assortment of artisan's galleries, eclectic specialty shops, romantic restaurants, museums and inns, are simply charming and combine century old architecture with modern day amenities.
By land or sea, summer, fall or winter, 'active' fun is right at hand. Sail, cycle, golf & kayak in the warmer months. Hike and cross country ski the miles of trails in winter. Unwind with a spa day or stroll a sandy beach.
There's no surprise that Fodor's Travel Wire describes us as "a postcard perfect maritime town" but we'll let you decide when you choose Mahone Bay as your next vacation destination.
