Guest Testimonials

 A great stay with beautiful views and plenty of room and all the amenities for a great stay.

 Gorgeous place. The photos are beautiful but it’s even better in person. Completely private and surrounded by nature, you’ll drink your coffee next to the tree tops. We absolutely loved our stay at Neptune's Rise.

 An Idyllic Retreat by the Sea
We travelled with another couple to spend a week last June in this beautiful spot. The ferry from Portland was a ‘mini cruise’ and lots of fun. Landing at Yarmouth, it was a short hour’s drive to Orchard Point. The house, itself, is pristinely clean, and well decorated with a warm, antique feel, but very modern appointments throughout. With two large sunny bedrooms, and two bathrooms, the house is perfect for traveling with friends, couples, or a family with children. The house is situated at the edge of the ocean, on a point with water views from all sides. Sunrise and sunset were spectacular, and even the one rainy day we had was special. You can do as much, or as little as you’d like during a stay. The location is perfect for day trips to Nova Scotia Highlights, including The Bay of Fundy, Halifax, Digby, Gran Pre National Historic Site, numerous Vineyards (We had lunch at Luckett Vineyard overlooking the Bay of Fundy, where everyone gets to make a free call to anywhere from the old red phone booth —spectacular!), and of course, the famed ‘Lighthouse Route’. Only minutes away is the sweet and well preserved loyalist town of Shelburne, with its Saturday farmer’s market, picturesque docks and iconic yellow Dories, still made by master dory makers. We enjoyed nice meals at a number of restaurants in Shelburne, along with a lovely harbor cruise, where we were treated to a steak and lobster dinner while touring the coast. On a few days, we just enjoyed spending the day at the house — kayaking, beach combing, grilling, and of course, having drinks by the giant fire pit at night. Overall, my husband and I agree that our time at Orchard Point was one of the happiest and most relaxing weeks we’ve had in years. A very special place that we hope to get back to soon!

Description

Rising Sun guest house is a beautiful restored Nova Scotia vacation home. Carefully renovated, the house combines old world character with a coastal inspired modern style.

The main floor of this stylish vacation rental has a tasteful living room with a propane fireplace and comfortable chairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen that is excellent for entertaining with gourmet cookware and an en suite dining room with a view of the bay and a French door that leads into the garden. Also downstairs is a small workspace and a 2-piece powder room.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, laundry facilities and a four-piece bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower. With a view of the bay, the master bedroom is simply furnished with a classic design, king-size bed, side tables, reading chair and closet. The guest room features two standard size twin beds, a side table, and a dresser. Both rooms have closets.

Clean lines, muted colours inspired by the surroundings and carefully selected pieces all add to the casual charm of this seaside guest house.

Surrounded by wildflowers, the garden is a restful retreat. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sun rise over the bay. Stroll down the winding pathway to the rocky (not sandy) shoreline to relax by the ocean. Huge granite boulders shaped by tide and time are the perfect backdrop for a day on the water. Put out a towel and sunbathe; walk along the shore; spot seals playing in peaceful Jordan Bay. For those of you who like to swim, there is an excellent sheltered swimming area just off the rocks.

There is something about the salt air that promotes a peaceful, unhurried existence, where your troubles melt away and are replaced with easy problems like which beach to visit next, or what to have for lunch.

So sit back and relax! Coastal living couldn't be better!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I have personally been to this vacation rental and I am quite familiar with the property.

Shelburne is half way along the Lighthouse Route - about an hour and 15 minutes from Yarmouth and about 2 hours from Halifax. An hour and a half from Lunenburg, and about 2 hours to Digby, it is a great location to use as a base from which to explore the South Shore.

Guestbook

"This location is exceptional and the cottage itself was immaculate!
The morning coffee in the dining room or the back yard has to be enjoyed in person to fully understand the exceptional scenery and peace of the location.
Absolutely no regrets on this stay and will be looking forward to another trip!"

Jon, 2022


"My family and I loved our stay at Rising Sun. The cottage was cute and cozy. It was close driving distance to grocery store and restaurants. We enjoyed hiking and visiting some beaches in the area. Thanks Helen!"
