Guest Testimonials

As beautiful place as we've ever seen, and so quiet!  (if you don't count wind, flapping wings and chattering squirrels).  We loved Sand Hills and Shelburne - Chester was a bit too precious.  Nova Scotians were so friendly and outgoing.  But most of all we loved the unimpaired abiility here to relax and reflect.

I had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay.

Elm Tree Cottage has all the comforts that one would need for a decent stay. I was there for nearly 3 weeks and enjoyed coming back in the evening to this cosy little cottage. It is nicely decorated, great shower, comfortable bed, good kitchen and good internet. The owners live nearby such that if anything is needed (like losing the key) they are there to provide it.

What a great cottage!  Scenery, quiet, tranquility, quietest cottage we have ever stayed at. Went down Blanche Rd. to the end (about 10 min from cottage) and walked the beach and rocks at low tide. Saw a colony of seals barking on the rocks. Don't miss Cape Forchu outside of Yarmouth. Outstanding!

Our first day here we open the curtains to be greeted by the view of a Great Blue Heron standing among the rocks of your little beach area!  For our 20th anniversary what we were looking for was a place that offered quiet an seclusion away from very busy lives! Castaway Ocean Lodge was just the ticket!  Quiet relaxing days of no particular schedule made this an anniversary to remember!

Sandy Point Lighthouse Beach

There is nothing better than a day at the beach!
On a warm summers night, a young girl looks for seashells as the sun sets over Sandy Point Lighthouse Beach.
At low tide you can walk out to the lighthouse.
A couple relax by the beach.


The Sandy Point Lighthouse Beach is a tidal beach that grows in size as the tide ebbs. At low tide a glistening stretch of golden sand links the Sandy Point Lighthouse to the shoreline. The shallow waters, rock pools and proximity to the Sandy Point Community Centre (for snacks and washrooms) makes this a very popular beach with local families. Our sons, love it there - it is always their first choice. For them there are sand castles to build, seashells, starfish and other treasures to be found. And the fact that it is an 8-minute drive from the center of Shelburne makes it very convenient.
