Guest Testimonials

We had a wonderful time! The view is fantastic and we experienced all kinds of weather from warm and sunny to a "nor easter!" We love the seals! Had fun taking day trips; seeing all the beautiful beaaches and quaint villages. Lunenburg was great! Our best supper was the lobster we got in town. We cooked them here-they were delicious! All in all: a perfect way to celebrate our 30th anniversary!

We had a fantastic time. Such a relaxing atmosphere and inspiring architecture.  Sand Hills Park was a great beach... Nice warm water.   Thank you for sharing your cottage!

 We were 2 seniors, 1 adult, 1 child, staying three nights at Neptune’s Rise. The cottage is clean, modern, perfect amount of space for us. The upper level has a lovely kitchen, half bath and lounging area. There is a little perfect deck off of the kitchen to watch the ocean. Walking down a little path takes you to a pebbly beach to explore. We did not go into the ocean, but you certainly can. We saw deer and loads of heron.

There are two beaches we went to nearby: Cresent and Roseway. They were spectacular. Everything in Shelburne was closed tight due to Covid restrictions, but we shopped at Sobeys and enjoyed ice cream at Mo’s, which was fun.

The lower level of the cottage has two nice sized bedrooms and a huge bathroom. Loads of towels and comfy linens. There is a single trundle bed under the stairs. The blinds in both bedrooms did not keep the early sunrise out, so my daughter was early to rise, but that’s a normal summer issue. One bedroom only had a single window that opened so that could get quite warm. Bring a fan.

The breeze off of the ocean was amazing. There was loads of fun crafts and games. The house was comfortable, very private and a perfect getaway for us. We did not use the paddle boards as I could not find ankle straps for them. There was a big drawer of life jackets which was nice.

Highly recommended.

The cottage was everything we expected and more. It is way more than depicted in the website ad. the seclusion, beauty and natural setting were great. We hoped to return soon.

Island's Provincial Park

This Arial view of Island Provincial Park shows the park in the centre and the town of Shelburne in the top right hand corner. At the very end of the park is a seculded bench with the best view of the harbour.


Just across the harbour from the historic town of Shelburne, the Islands Provincial Park is a short drive or walk from the centre of town. With two picnic areas, an unsupervised beach and boat launch, it is an ideal place to spend a sunny afternoon. Walk to the end of trail for the best view of the harbour, McNutts Island and the Sandy Point Lighthouse.The Islands Provincial Park is located on Nova Scotia's South Shore, on the west side of Shelburne Harbour, 1 km south of Highway 3.
