Guest Testimonials

Perfect stay, so peaceful and relaxing
We just had our second stay in this Castaway Ocean Lodge and it was just as good as the first. We bought some friends along the second time, and they enjoyed the cabin and Nova Scotia as much as us. The hot tub is fantastic and we were in it every day, they had upgraded it to a new one second time around, which was even better. There are robes provided in the cabin to make full use of it even when it’s a little chilly in the evenings. It’s so peaceful and quiet, with no neighbours overlooking you, a really good place to chill out. We made use of the fire pit outside and the kayaks to explore. The first time we went there were some seals we spotted in the water nearby while were kayaking. We ended up travelling around in the good weather, up to the wineries in the Annapolis Valley, to Luneburg and beautiful nearby Shelburne (Charlotte Lane Cafe is worth checking out the food is amazing). On the rainy days we enjoyed relaxing in front of the log fire, cooking in the very well equipped kitchen and playing the many board games left for use in the cabin. The cabin is really homey and comfortable; there is everything you could ever need. I can’t wait to go back again.
Red Head Retreat is a delightful and welcoming home away from home! Nova Scotia and our host, Helen, offered us a wonderful respite from our usual routine, with comfort and simplicity. Thank you, Helen!

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 house, great beach
My family, including kids aged 2-11, spent a week at this lovely beach house. Sanderling Beach House was well appointed with all the amenities we needed. The owners have done a wonderful job creating a beautiful home that is very comfortable and welcoming. It might just be the perfect beach house. Even lovelier than the house, though, was the location, which is every bit as spectacular as the pictures suggest. We spent hours combing the beach, building sand castles and enjoying the view and the sounds of the ocean. It was great for our kids to disconnect from screens for a while. They didn't even miss them! Our cell phone reception was spotty, but after some initial separation anxiety from our blackberries, it was nice to really decompress! We explored Shelburne (lovely) and Liverpool (also interesting, though next time I'd skip the Rossignol Cultural Centre). The owners left some information about local restaurants and while we didn't try them all, we did like the ones we went to, and in particular, Charlotte Lane in Shelburne. All in all, a great week in a beautiful home on a spectacular beach!

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

This stunning photograph taken by Chuck Doswell ( captures beautifully the clarity of light and the waters surrounding Peggy’s Cove.

Certainly, Nova Scotia's, and perhaps Canada's most famous Lighthouse, Peggy's Cove lighthouse was erected in 1868 to mark the eastern entrance to St. Margaret's Bay. Peggy's Cove is a small picturesque fishing village that surrounds a narrow ocean inlet, which provides safe haven for boats during the Atlantic's rough weather. The lighthouse built on the large smooth wave washed granite rocks is the crowning feature of this beautiful Atlantic cove. You can walk over the huge boulders to enjoy the splendid view in all directions. There is a Post Office inside the lower level of the lighthouse where visitors are able to mail their post cards. There is a restaurant and gift shop for meals and souvenirs.This is a very popular tourist destination. We have found that it is best to visit the lighthouse either early in the morning before the tour busses or late in the day after the crowds have disbursed.
