Guest Testimonials

 This has been our third stay at Helen's cottage and the guys have enjoyed it! The place is perfect for our needs and will be booking for a fourth time!
 Enfield, Canada, 2020
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.

We have stayed at this Sea Star Cottage on several occasions. It is a lovely and tranquil spot to get recharged and enjoy a vacation. It is very private and yet close to a beautiful beach! You will think you are in a paradise when you see the beach! The cottage is cozy and wonderfully decorated. We would highly recommend it to all ages!

This is a very special spot. Sanderling Beach House has a 360 degree view of marsh, river, ocean, sand, and sky. We loved our stay here. Thank you for providing a very well appointed and comfortable house.
