Immerse Yourself in the Natural Beauty of Mahone Bay

Welcome to The Black Forest Cabins, where a beautifully restored farmhouse and newly built cabins await you. 

Located in the heart of Mahone Bay, just 45 minutes from Halifax, The Black Forest Cabins offer the perfect getaway for you to explore the shops, restaurants and coastal scenery of this historic town and its surrounding areas. Enjoy sightseeing in neighbouring Chester and Lunenburg, a spa escape at Sensea Spa, or a bike, walk, or run on the multi-use Rails to Trails system. Experience the town’s local cafes and restaurants just steps from the property, including Saltbox Brewery, Betty’s at the Kitch, and The Barn Coffee and Social House.

Whether you are looking for a larger group booking in the charming Spruce Top Cottage farmhouse, or a quiet getaway for two in one of the self-contained Black Forest Cabins, you will be immersed in natural beauty with the surrounding trees and trail system located on the property.

Spruce Top Cottage

This 200-yr old gothic revival-style home has been restored to preserve its original charm, with hardwood floors and warm natural light throughout. It sleeps 8 guests with 4 bedrooms upstairs, including two primary bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed, and two more bedrooms, each with two twin-sized beds (one is a trundle). There is a full bathroom upstairs, and a powder room on the main floor. A living room and separate den on the main floor offer lots of space for families to spread out. Free wifi and parking are included.

Black Forest Cabins

Only steps from Spruce Top Cottage, we have eight brand new, self-contained cabins ready for booking in early summer 2024. The remaining 8 cabins will begin construction in the fall. The cabins are thoughtfully designed with Scandinavian-inspired décor and access to lots of natural light, showcasing the surrounding trees and tranquil setting of Black Forest Retreat. Each cabin sleeps two, with an open concept layout featuring a King Bed, kitchenette, flat screen tv, sitting area, heating and cooling system, and full bathroom. Free wifi and parking are included.
