Relive A Nova Scotia Vacation Tradition.

Welcome to Bayside Farm & Cottages.

Stay at Bayside Farm & Cottages and relive a Nova Scotia vacation tradition.

For nearly 40 years Bayside Farm was one of the most popular summer resorts in Nova Scotia. Year after year, visitors from across Canada, the United States, and other North American destinations would travel to this historic Digby County farmhouse to experience rural life at its very best. Originally owned and built by the Sabean family in 1855 the farmhouse property was sold to Gilbert Lent in 1872. It was Gilbert’s son Fred who established “Bayside Farm Inn” during the first half of the century. Fred Lent and his wife, Ethel operated the inn from the late 1920’s to the early 1960’s. The inn consisted of five rooms (upstairs), a tennis court, a swimming pool (across the road) and four cabins on the grounds of the farm. The resort had a stellar reputation attracting families, business travellers, well-known politicians and celebrities to this charming hamlet on St. Mary’s Bay.

Today Bayside Farm is a designated ‘Heritage Property‘ and the perfect Nova Scotia vacation destination. Purchased by Roger & Louise Mullen in 1991, the farmhouse, now a guesthouse has been extensively restored and renovated, and is available for selective rental for special events like weddings, retreats or family reunions. The new Bayside Farm & Cottages includes the historic farmhouse and four luxury rentals on beautiful St. Mary’s Bay, at Weymouth North, Digby County. Each cottage (including one cabin that was part of the historic resort) provides maximum privacy, comfort and convenience for a truly relaxing Nova Scotia vacation.
