Guest Testimonials

We had a wonderful week in Shelburne. This house is truy a very special place and is named appropriately: very tranquil indeed! We enjoyed the quiet and sense of isolation. The screened porch was the favorite part of the house for us. Although the water was cold, we enjoyed our dip at the Crescent Beach. We will always remember our first trip to Nova Scotia and how very much we enjoyed this house.

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.

Description

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!
