Only a short drive to all the amenities of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay.

The Old Barn was a great place to vacation with our family. We were delighted to observe white tailed deer everyday! Red fox, blue jays, gold finch and several varieties of butterflies were other familiar sightings. Heckman's Island, specifically, provided a quiet place to enjoy the natural world. The Old Barn, with its unique design offered many fun spaces for our kids to play. The Barn became our home away from home! The Old Barn is great way to enjoy Lunenburg County, NS.

The Old Barn is such a memorable place. Such a comforting and comfortable home to be in. David is also a fantastic host who not only provided a beautiful home-away-from-home but was always readily available to address any need that arose (not that there were any, apart from the suggestion that there be access to a larger pot for lobster)! We would love to come back one day to hopefully share the Old Barn with others.

Hi, we are Dave and Jo, a couple of Brits from a small town called Chichester.
I have been involved in the Hotel and Food Trade for 30 years, and Jo is a Registered Massage Therapist and Acupuncturist. We are very new to the AirBnB world and will be exploring it more for ourselves once our last little lady has flown the nest. In the meantime we know you will love our small piece of peace in this amazing Old Barn on the South Shore. We can give you lots of pointers and tips on where to go and what secrets there are to discover!
