Guest Testimonials

Shelburne is an adorable little town with lots of history. Nova Scotia is gorgeous! We loved every minute of our stay here in this tremendous province. We will definitely return.

 Beach Heaven was a lovely retreat for my husband and I. We are vegan and so we appreciated being able to eat a plant based diet while away. Very clean and tidy. The beach is steps away and there are two golf courses about 45 min away. Such a lovely location and home. Highly highly recommend.

We have had a very enjoyable and relaxing time in Nova Scotia. We explored numerous beaches; ate at Charlotte Lane; got out on the water; poked around Shelburne; watched a meteor shower and spied deer  as they crept across the lawn.  Our cottage was well equipped for entertaining and cooking and especially relaxing!  In fact, many hours were spent simply reading on the porch. We even managed to forget which day it was for a while!

 Amazing and wonderful!!!
We loved loved loved our week here at Ragged Island Retreat! The location is so remote and peaceful, it's almost unbelievable. We spent the week kayaking, writing and breathing in the wonderful ocean air which wafts in over the salt pond. We are already planning our return next summer and can't wait!

Louis Head Beach is one of our favourite beaches.  It is a glorious golden crescent beach that stretches for over 2 miles. The sandy beach and protected cove make it an ideal launching area for kayaking.

Home to the endangered Piping Plover, dogs should be leashed during the nesting and hatching season in late June and early July. 


The nearest cottage to this beach is:
Sanderling Beach House - this cottage is right on the beach
To get to the beach take Exit 23, HWY 103 continue along this road until you come to a fork in the road.  Take the left fork following signs to Louis Head Beach and Little Harbour.  Turn left on to Ferry West Road.  The beach is at the end of the road.
