Guest Testimonials

 Serenity at its best!
We fell in love with the area immediately! Sanderling Beach House has every convenience anyone could need for a perfect stay...and then some! The kitchen is fully equipped with small appliances, specialty utensils, cookware and dinnerware. There is plenty of room to accommodate more than 4 people at mealtime, sitting around the large centre island or at the dining/kitchen table. The rooms are comfortably equipped with quilts and extra blankets, if needed. We especially liked being able to BBQ at the house in the screened-in sunroom. There are plenty of Muskoka chairs to sit and laze around the deck or down at the beach. The white sand beach is magnificent! We walked it many times each day and felt like it was our own private beach. Very few people venture down to this area of beach from the public beach area, even though it is the best, in my opinion. It has the best view, clearest water, and no rocks. The tide comes in and out frequently so there were many sandbars for us to walk on and large ‘puddles’ to wade in. The water was quite cold, so we did not spend a lot of time in the ocean itself…we preferred the sun-warmed ‘puddles’ that were formed by the tide. (There were many jellyfish in the area, as well.) We thoroughly enjoyed the Beach House and were able to truly relax! We did boost our data plan so that family members could access email, etc., and then accessed Wi-fi when we headed into town, for groceries, etc. It was nice not feeling the need to be connected on our vacation. Thank you for the excellent accommodations!

Had a wonderfull week at the cottage. Highlights for the kids were the seals at the Keji Seaside Park. For us it was the dinner at the Quarter Deck Restaurant.

 This place is absolutely amazing! We arrived just as the sun was setting and we were completely floored.

House is very comfortable and clean. Lots of great beaches and places to explore.

Highly recommend this place and I know I’ll be back again for sure !!

 Our weekend at the cottage was awesome! We found the cottage easily and were thrilled with the roomy interior and modern decor. The cottage was immaculate - clean, fresh and fully stocked with everything we needed to enjoy a few days at the beach. I hope to plan another stay at Summerset Cottage soon. Thank you!


Sam, Max and I spent a day in Lunenburg exploring the Fisheries Museum and the harbour front.
Tall Ships are moored in Lunenburg.
This rocking Dory was a huge hit with my two young fishermen.
The Bluenose II is a replica of the famous Bluenose Schooner - the celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, that held the International Fisherman's Trophy for 17 years in a row. (1921-1938)


Lunenburg is one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Founded and established in 1753, the town is named in honour of the Duke of Braunschweig-L√ľneburg who later became King George II of England in 1727. Lunenburg has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The plans were created without regard to local topography, which is why Lunenburg's streets are always straight and sometimes dizzyingly steep. If you are of limited mobility or are pushing a heavy stroller, it may be too much for you. Historic homes and buildings that date back to the 1700s have been renovated and now house restaurants, shops and galleries. The extraordinary preservation of the Town's architecture earned it the designation of an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. There is plenty to do in Lunenburg. Go for a horse and buggy ride around the town or take a walking tour; have a lobster lunch or take a fishing charter. Make sure you set aside time to visit the Fisheries Museum. There are plenty of excellent restaurants.


Lunenburg is approximately an hour and a half drive from Shelburne (125 km/78 miles) a 50 minute drive from Liverpool (60 km/38 miles) and an hour and 15 minutes from Halifax (95 km/60 miles).
