Guest Testimonials

 We loved our stay at Neptune’s Rise. The location was quiet and scenic. Being right on the bay we enjoyed paddle boarding, searching for sea glass, and even swimming. Brrrr!

Communicating with the host was helpful and always prompt.

The house is lovely, was clean, and had everything we needed. We would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect stay, so peaceful and relaxing
We just had our second stay in this Castaway Ocean Lodge and it was just as good as the first. We bought some friends along the second time, and they enjoyed the cabin and Nova Scotia as much as us. The hot tub is fantastic and we were in it every day, they had upgraded it to a new one second time around, which was even better. There are robes provided in the cabin to make full use of it even when it’s a little chilly in the evenings. It’s so peaceful and quiet, with no neighbours overlooking you, a really good place to chill out. We made use of the fire pit outside and the kayaks to explore. The first time we went there were some seals we spotted in the water nearby while were kayaking. We ended up travelling around in the good weather, up to the wineries in the Annapolis Valley, to Luneburg and beautiful nearby Shelburne (Charlotte Lane Cafe is worth checking out the food is amazing). On the rainy days we enjoyed relaxing in front of the log fire, cooking in the very well equipped kitchen and playing the many board games left for use in the cabin. The cabin is really homey and comfortable; there is everything you could ever need. I can’t wait to go back again.
The perfect place to self isolate
5 of us stayed at Ragged Island Retreat while we were in quarantine and it was perfect. Lots of space to roam the property, we hardly ever saw anyone except the odd person clamming, or driving a truck down the road. The accommodations were simple but very comfortable, loved all the windows and the sunrises were AMAZING! Would definitely recommend if you are looking to get away from the business.
 Overall stay at Neptune's Rise was well beyond our expectations. The location was amazing, the house was wonderful, the walks on shore you'll never forget. Lots to keep the little ones busy which we werent expecting at all. Like coloring books, toys, blocks even playdoh etc... which really helped. Everything was clean and perfect. Definitely would stay again. No complaints at all. Perfect for the family.

With a population of under seven hundred people, Lockeport is a small town in a spectacular setting.  Settled in the 1700's, the town relies on the fishing industry for its livelihood.  Numerous wharves provide plenty of photographic opportunities of working boats as well as a chance to talk to some of the hardy folk that fish on them.

The long stretch of white sand that forms the outer edge of Lockeport's causeway is better known as Crescent Beach.  At one end of the beach is the Crescent Beach Centre.  With a tourist information center, snack bar, washrooms and gift shop, the Centre is a welcome pit stop during a full day on this lively kid-friendly beach.

Crescent Beach Centre organizes a number of different activities: Beach parties, Sand Scultpure contests, and an annual Sea Derby.

For the history buff - Nova Scotia's only Registered Historic Streetscape is worth investigating.  Made up of five houses built by descendants of Jonathan Locke between 1836 and 1876, the houses offer an interesting cross section of historical architecture with excellent examples of Colonial, Georgian and Victorian styles. A walking-tour guidebook is available at the Little School Museum.  The museum has in its collection a variety of artifacts relating to early life in the community, a replica of an early school room and a marine room.

If you are coming with children and don't want to spend the whole day on the beach, there is a great playground in the centre of town.
