It was when Paul wandered out onto the deck overlooking the small harbour and serenaded the twilight with his trombone that I surrendered completely to Edgewater’s charms. The setting, the weather, the house at my back….....

.... The (distant) neighbours finish gardening when they hear Paul play and guests consider where to eat. Mahone Bay is one of the prettiest towns in Canada, and eight years ago the Seltzers were just another couple passing through. But you know how it is: you extend your holiday, you buy a B&B, you turn it into the best place around. They chose a spot outside town overlooking the water: in five minutes you can be at a restaurant, yet you return to serenity. They’ve got everything right inside as well. The removal of walls means that the dining area drifts into the sitting room and the music room. Upstairs, the three sizeable bedrooms are all stunners. Ahead of these is the newly-refurbished Sea Loft Cottage, a fully-equipped hideaway for two. Downstairs, you’ll notice the ingenious fireplace-cum-waterfall, before the simple colours, wooden floors, antiques and rugs confirm the wisdom of your choice. Come breakfast, you’ll be feeling smugger still as Susan’s creations work their indisputable magic; like me, you’ll probably just sit and wonder at how very, very pleasant the whole experience is.
