Guest Testimonials

 My family and I had a wonderful time at the cottage, wonderful weather, beside the ocean and the front sun room is great.

This was our 10th Wedding anniversary and it was great. Castaway Ocean Lodge is such a beautiful log cabin. The view was wonderful also! We took out the Kayaks on Saturday; it was great! The lodge was just spectacular, so new and comfy. The hot tub was so relaxing. We will return with more of our family because it's a great lodge and property. Thanks.

Thank you for making your wonderful beach house available to us. Both of us work in fairly high stress jobs and were looking for an extra-relaxing locale for a break. The cottage, setting and local places and people provided this behond our hopes.

A quiet day on the beach
A Lobster Fishing boat cruises by Carter's Beach in Port Mouton Nova Scotia


One of the nicest beach in the Liverpool area, Carter's beach is actually three beaches in one - all the beaches have slightly different orientations, so it is always possible to find a sunny spot out of the wind.  The first beach you come to is a gentle crescent beach that is fairly shallow.  It is boarded by sand dunes along the back.  The next beach is a little rougher - it has a river that runs through it that is tidal.  It is much easier to cross at low tide when it is about ankle deep that at high tide when it is waist deep.  It is not a problem, but is definitely something to watch.  When we went to the beach with our children (1 and 4) we played a lot in this river at low tide as the water was warmer and there were no waves.  We love this beach.

John and I went to Carter's beach on Canada Day in 2001. We were amazed. It looked like we had traveled thousands of miles to the Caribbean - the sand was white and the water turquoise. The illusion was broken when we dipped our toes into the ocean and realized that yes we were still in Canada! The water was not freezing, but it definitely was not tropical!


Sea Star Cottage and Harbour Tide House in Port Mouton are the closest cottages to this beach.
