Guest Testimonials

We spent two bissful weeks in your lovely Moose Harbour View Cottage.  What a pleasure to gaze out the window and see such a view.  We had fun exploring the South Shore.  Thanks for sharing!

 I just want to say Summerset Cottage was in a beautiful location and a beautiful place. The garage was an excellent addition for our needs. Helen and her partner were super hosts and would highly recommend staying here!

 Sapphire Cottage had a great view of the water and lovely decor, our daughter really enjoyed the daybed.

The perfect place to self isolate
5 of us stayed at Ragged Island Retreat while we were in quarantine and it was perfect. Lots of space to roam the property, we hardly ever saw anyone except the odd person clamming, or driving a truck down the road. The accommodations were simple but very comfortable, loved all the windows and the sunrises were AMAZING! Would definitely recommend if you are looking to get away from the business.

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.
