At Three Thistles B&B and Apartment, you will find a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, gracious hospitality, and simple elegance. Dating back to 1890, Three Thistles is one of the most beautiful historic homes in Mahone Bay, situated in the beautiful South Shore region. Completely renovated in 2000, it retains the original character with touches added for comfort. The location allows for a peaceful visit while being a few minutes walk from the waterfront, with its unique boutiques and dining establishments.

Three heritage churches line the water's edge in Mahone Bay, and the lighted steeple of St. James Anglican Church can be seen from the entrance to the harbour. Hike the Trans Canada Trail that winds its way around the town. Take a boat cruise and enjoy deep-sea fishing and puffin and whale watching.

Travel to Bridgewater for a round of golf at the Osprey Ridge Golf Club, an 18-hole course overlooking Mahone Bay's Islands. Keep travelling to the UNESCO World Heritage Town of Lunenburg, and immerse yourself in the town's seafaring culture. Visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, the Bluenose II in her home port, and take in the artisans' boutiques, fine seafood establishments, and galleries along the way.

Accommodations include three rooms with queen-size beds and ensuite 3- or 4-piece baths (one with Jacuzzi) as well as one loft apartment with a queen-sized Murphy Bed, 3-piece bath with tub, and a full kitchen. A continental breakfast using organic and locally-sourced ingredients is served to guests in the B&B, mindful of special dietary concerns.

The historic home features antiques, handmade quilts, and a relaxed atmosphere. Nova Scotian art and books are available in the guest parlour. Enjoy sitting by the pond in a tranquil garden setting and restore body and mind in the yoga studio. Ecologically responsible products are used throughout.

We are open year-round.
