Guest Testimonials

We had such a lovely time in Nova Scotia. It was everything we hoped it would be. Our children enjoyed the challenge of our own rocky beach. We even found a few intact sea urchins before the seagull smashed them. Other highlights of our visit were the "Trot in Time ride" through Lunenberg, Carter's Beach and Halifax. Thank you Helen and John so much for your part in our great vacation.

 A fabulous two week getaway
We had a fabulous two week vacation. It was a shot in the dark because we had no prior information on the site other than what was provided. We were not disappointed. Castaway Ocean Lodge is large and comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen and the furnishings are top notch. The site is somewhat secluded that gives privacy with access to the ocean and a very good view. There is an excellent protected bay for kayaking and a good hot tub to relax in after a day on the water.

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.
