About Donald MacLanders
We are the 7th generation MacLanders to own this Century farm. We are both from the Tatamagouche area but currently working and living abroad. We have made many wonderful family memories while living here. It is the central gathering home for our extended families for generations. We will eventually retire to this home but would like to offer you the opportunity to create your own wonderful memories.
Donald MacLanders purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1842
Why Donald MacLanders chose Tatamagouche
This home is large enough for most family gatherings with many modern amenties. With 100 acrres , there is lots of room for kids and pets to be free to explore or for people to come and relax. The views of the sunrises, sunsets, mountains and ocean are available everywhere on the property. We love sitting in the gazebo, during all 4 seasons to relax at the end of the day.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Close to beaches, golf, rails to trails and Ski Wentworth for many activities. Tatmagouche has all the conveniences you will require for your perfect vacation. The home itself combines historic character with modern conveniences. Fully equipped, you can enjoy the peace and quiet with modern amenities.

Perfect for a Bookclub Retreat
Our Bookclub of 9 women (with one absent, to our great regret), enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse immensely. The facilities were perfect for us, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and an excellent kitchen. We particularly loved the wonderful wood-burning fireplace (with plentiful supplies of dry wood) for our evening book discussions and story-telling. Mr. MacLanders helped us quickly with our WiFi questions. We watched the soybean crop being harvested on the fields beside the house. Our adventures in the neighbourhood, focused on weaving, pottery and sheep-farming, were all excellent. It was an exceptionally fine experience for us all.
The house and the property are perfect for a large group. We had ten women in our group and we all had our own space, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The house is actually two homes, an older farmhouse connected to a newer home, so you get two homes for the price of one. The home is well-maintained and the house manager, Annie, was very helpful! The home is on a large property, so there is plenty of privacy. The town of Tatamagouche is a couple miles up the road which has several great shops and restaurants and everyone in town was very welcoming. The location of the home is perfect if you are planning to explore all of Nova Scotia- we visited Halifax, toured Cape Breton, visited Prince Edward Island, and went on several local tours. Sea glass hunting on the beach at Cape John was great; axe throwing at the Timber Lounge in Halifax was a highlight; the Oyster Tour at Bay Enterprises is a must, as is the tour at Sugar Moon- they make their own maple syrup. I have rented several homes in the US and abroad and this was definitely one of my favorites!
We are glad you and your friends enjoyed our home and all the surrounding areas.
Thank you and please come again
Nice and roomy
family of 15, we enjoyed our stay in this vast and intricate home which transpires a lot of history. The kids were scared of the old kitchen at night, which was funny.
We are very happy you enjoyed our home. When the wood stove is on in the old kitchen, the kids would understand how it becomes the center if the home
Perfect for a Big Group - Huge Farm House on a Beautiful Property
This house was perfect for our large group that spent a long weekend here. The house is divided, half old and half new so you get two houses, 2 kitchens (2 fridges), tons of bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a huge amount of living space.
The property itself is beautiful and remote enough that you don't feel like you have neighbours while still being close to the town.
Donald was very to get in contact with to ask any additional questions that I had.
Own experience here was perfect, I would recommend for any large group of friends or family.
Thank you for the kind words. We are very happy you and your family enjoyed yourselves in our home. Best wishes to you and your family.
Family Anniversary Get Together!
Met our needs wonderfully!
Beautiful piece of property-stunning
Ein beeindruckendes Farmhaus, liebevoll eingerichtete Schlafzimmer, sehr schöne Badezimmer, eine perfekt ausgestattete Küche- die 2. haben wir, 2 Ehepaare mittleren Alters nicht benutzt. Eine tolle Fernsicht in alle Richtungen. Das Haus liegt so weit entfernt vom Sunrise Trail, dass man in keiner Weise vom Strassenlärm gestört wird.
Wir haben uns im und ums Haus ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt und werden bestimmt wieder kommen.
Besonders gut hat uns die für Deutsche ungewohnte und geniale Wäschetrocken Leine gefallen.
