Guest Testimonials

We've had a great week. Weather was beautiful; sunny and warm almost everyday. We went to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Bridgewater, Shelburne, Lockeport and Mahone Bay. Our cottage was lovely and the view was breathtaking! Crescent Beach in Lockeport is lovely!

Harbour Tide House was beautiful, very accurate to the description if not better in person! Location is perfect, big garden and lovely view. Very close to Carter's beach. Would recommend for sure!

The cottage, the area and Nova Scotia are all fantastic! One week was not enough. The deer visited everyday and appeared to be watching us more than we were watching them. Thank you for sharing this cozy and comfortable home.

 It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Neptune's Rise!

Before our trip Helen gave me an extensive package of information about Shelburne and Nova Scotia and details about the house. If you’re going to use the stand-up paddle boards don’t forget to sign your liability waiver! It was so much fun to take them out on the open water.

The house is quite secluded and it’s gorgeous! The photos in the listing are very accurate.

I was pleased to see so many personal touches in Neptune’s Rise. For instance, there were tons of games and books to help you pass the time without phone, internet, or tv. There were lots of pastimes for kids too, such as colored pencils, books, and toys. The kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans, and utensils that you’d need to prepare home-cooked meals. I was a bit concerned about a lack of kitchenware, especially due to COVID-19, but we found everything that we needed. Importantly, there was a percolator and a French press for coffee in the morning.

The bedrooms were spacious and had a great deal of storage, and the beds were very comfortable! I thought the overall decor was a nice blend of modern and personal touches.

We didn’t spend a ton of time in Shelburne because we spent our days going to beaches and lighthouses around the shore. But, we did have a great time at Boxing Rock and their shandy is the perfect summertime drink. I also recommend: the tomato soup at the Keeper’s Kitchen at the Cape Forchu lighthouse, Crescent Beach in Lockeport, and hiking at Thomas Raddall Provincial Park.

This was our most memorable experience from Neptune’s Rise …
We wanted to try the paddle boards so we brought them down to the water and started paddling around near the house. When we got our sea legs we decided to paddle to a sandy beach across the cove. It was a bit of a jaunt, and the waves made it a bit difficult to land on the beach, but it was well worth it. On our way back we spotted a seal who was watching us from a distance. The seal must have been curious because it swam closer and closer. I guess the seal’s curiosity drew the attention of its friends because before long there was a group of 5 seals! At this point I was trying to remember anything I could about the predatory tendencies of seals and I tried to keep my mind on getting back to shore. We paddled home without incident and we were followed by the curious seal. That seal watched as I floated near the shore and drank my shandy. When it realized I wasn’t going to do anything interesting it joined its friends and swam back out to sea.

Description

Bright View Cottage is a much loved family seaside cottage on 14 acres of oceanfront with rocky coves and sandy beaches close by. Painted a vibrant yellow with emerald green trim this is a cottage that embraces the Nova Scotian love of colourful homes. Impossible to miss, you cannot help but smile when you arrive at this delightful seaside cottage.

Completely renovated, the main floor features an open concept kitchen, living room, dining area with an office nook, and a 4 piece bathroom that includes laundry facilities. The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and an assortment of smaller appliances. The comfortably furnished living room features a large bay window with bench seating to take advantage of that captivating view. A large wooden table in the dining area encourages leisurely family meals together.

The cottage sleeps 5 people in three bedrooms. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom and a single twin bed in the third bedroom. From the master bedroom a sliding patio door leads to the upper balcony. With chairs and a magnificent seaside view, this is a glorious place to spend the day suntanning and relaxing.

On sunny calm days a fresh breeze blows though the house encouraging you to get out and explore. While on wet overcast days it is nice to hunker down and relax listening to music or playing board games in cozy comfort.

Location

Bright View Cottage is located on the eastern shore of Lockeport Harbour in the sparsely populated seaside community of East Ragged Island - just around the corner from Ragged Island Retreat and Black Point Cottage.

Ruggedly beautiful, the immediate area is stunning and there is no shortage of exploring to be done. There is a natural beach just down the lane and a swimming spot known by locals as the 'deep hole', a short walk away. Close by are the beautiful Louis Head Beach and Crescent Beach.

It is about a 15 minute drive to the closest town of Lockeport. The historic town of Shelburne, known for its museums, restaurants, theatre and harbour is about 30 minutes by car. A little further afield are Liverpool and Lunenburg. It is a 2-hour drive to Halifax International Airport and 1.5 hours to the ferry terminal in Yarmouth.

Guestbook

Great home. Clean. Great assortment of books and games and well equipped kitchen. Great bay window to enjoy.. Liked having the upstairs deck. Well stocked and great to also have laundry facilities, Sonia, August 2021

Great spot for family and pets! Short walk down main road to private beach! Lots of beaches, lots of choices. Mary, July 2021

Great Stay -- Great cottage in a beautiful peaceful location. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and has a great view of the ocean. Our only disappointment was that there was no bbq, other than that, it was wonderful and we'd definitely go back! L. Ayre, Nova Scotia, 2020

Wonderful! Wow, what a wonderful time we had! This beautiful cottage was exactly what we needed. The views are incredible and the amenities are so convenient. We stayed here for a couple of weeks in September. The weather was lovely and the surrounding environment was peaceful. We spent a lot of our time lounging on the main deck, observing the ocean and the wildlife. At nighttime the second level deck is an incredible place to view the stars. We played sports on the surrounding lawn and took walks (and swam!) at the nearby beaches. Great place for bike riding and jogging as there is little to no traffic. We were able to cook every meal at the cottage with a very well equipped kitchen. We especially loved having access to the extensive library both up and downstairs-lots of classics! Overall a fantastic place to reset and take it slow. C. Harlow, Nova Scotia, 2020

Peaceful south shore retreat with great views. Loved staying at Bright View. It is on a dirt road with only a couple of other houses on the same road, so very peaceful! Great open floor plan, bay window with view of the water. Highly recommended. J. Maloof, California September 2019

Our stay was absolutely amazing at this fabulous cottage. Beautiful house, beautiful beaches and total relaxation. Thanks Helen! Natasha, Chelsea, Canada, 2019

My Happy Place -- Fantastic beach, nice neighbors, Bright View Cottage is a great place to unwind and play board games with the kids and star gaze on the balcony with a glass of wine at night! S. Asprey, Quebec, Canada, 2018
