Guest Testimonials

Nice relaxing environment!!!

This property is a very special place. Amazing views, beautiful home, comfortable, quiet and private. We had a hard time leaving it even to go on our day tours. We loved the fresh air and breeze and the sound of the fog horn in the distance. We enjoyed take out seafood from Shelburne. Thank you.

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.

Great accommodations
We stayed at this wonderful place for a week and made beautiful memories! We found this Castaway Ocean Lodge surfing the web and the service we received from Sandy Lane Vacations was great. It was a memorable moment when we drove up the lane and saw the cottage for the first time with the ocean as it's background…it truly was a jaw dropping moment for us all. What a treat…this cottage has all the conveniences of a home away from home and then some. We really enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace at the end of the day, it was great to be able to relax after long hikes. The location is perfect for nature lovers and the peaceful surroundings soothes the nerves, thus it was with much regret we had to pack up and head back home. Really enjoyed our stay and definitely worthy of a return trip in the near future.


Sam, Max and I spent a day in Lunenburg exploring the Fisheries Museum and the harbour front.
Tall Ships are moored in Lunenburg.
This rocking Dory was a huge hit with my two young fishermen.
The Bluenose II is a replica of the famous Bluenose Schooner - the celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, that held the International Fisherman's Trophy for 17 years in a row. (1921-1938)


Lunenburg is one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Founded and established in 1753, the town is named in honour of the Duke of Braunschweig-L√ľneburg who later became King George II of England in 1727. Lunenburg has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The plans were created without regard to local topography, which is why Lunenburg's streets are always straight and sometimes dizzyingly steep. If you are of limited mobility or are pushing a heavy stroller, it may be too much for you. Historic homes and buildings that date back to the 1700s have been renovated and now house restaurants, shops and galleries. The extraordinary preservation of the Town's architecture earned it the designation of an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. There is plenty to do in Lunenburg. Go for a horse and buggy ride around the town or take a walking tour; have a lobster lunch or take a fishing charter. Make sure you set aside time to visit the Fisheries Museum. There are plenty of excellent restaurants.


Lunenburg is approximately an hour and a half drive from Shelburne (125 km/78 miles) a 50 minute drive from Liverpool (60 km/38 miles) and an hour and 15 minutes from Halifax (95 km/60 miles).
