Guest Testimonials

 The cottage is a great getaway and in a wonderful location. There are so many different parts of the house to explore, and all very tastefully decorated. We loved the stack of games and the nook for watching movies, sitting in the window looking out at the apple trees and rabbits, and also the ease of navigating around the area from the house. We were in NS for a wedding, and it was a perfect launching pad for all activities over the weekend, and a lovely place to wake up and come back to at the end of the night! One tip: Make sure to pick up some provisions on your way, as there's not much in the area.

We arrive here after a long drive. Francis Louis House is lovely and romantic; made us feel extremely happy and we rested very quickly before running down to the beach. When we got to the water, we were amazed that the sand actually is white! We looked around and we knew that we had found the perfect vacation spot. A little into our visit we wondered why people were crazy about the Bahamas and no so fanatic about Canada's hidden paradise. For the last three nights, we made bonfires and cooked our dinners on the beach. The coals looked like the sky's stars and the sound of the waves made it seem too good to be true. We really enjoyed our stay.

We have stayed at Sea Star Cottage on several occasions. It is a lovely and tranquil spot to get recharged and enjoy a vacation. It is very private and yet close to a beautiful beach! You will think you are in a paradise when you see the beach! The cottage is cozy and wonderfully decorated. We would highly recommend it to all ages!

We had a lovely stay with spectacularly clear nights. The was a new moon so you could see the Milky Way and rain horizon to horizon. I haven't seen so many stars in years

Description

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.
