Guest Testimonials

Castaway Ocean Lodge is away from it all in the most tranquill, idyllic spot in Nova Scotia! Our first view of your beautiful home was breathtaking and we've enjoyed every minute. Watching humming birds feeding, woodpeckers on the sateliite dish and Ospreys has been briliant. We've explored hidden coves and inlets from Peggy's Cove right dwon the South Shore to Yarmouth. We also visited Digby; the scallops were great! Driving through Kejimkujik we saw deer. The weather has been so good to us too; sunshing every day apart from Monday and even then it was really warm. Thank you so much.

Thank you for sharing Castaway Ocean Lodge with us. It's good to see a beautiful and solid house like that in Nova Scotia. We enjoyed the hot tub in the full moon light; went kayaking and swimming in the ocean, etc.

 Amazing and wonderful!!!
We loved loved loved our week here at Ragged Island Retreat! The location is so remote and peaceful, it's almost unbelievable. We spent the week kayaking, writing and breathing in the wonderful ocean air which wafts in over the salt pond. We are already planning our return next summer and can't wait!

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.
