Guest Testimonials

We have had a very enjoyable and relaxing time in Nova Scotia. We explored numerous beaches; ate at Charlotte Lane; got out on the water; poked around Shelburne; watched a meteor shower and spied deer  as they crept across the lawn.  Our cottage was well equipped for entertaining and cooking and especially relaxing!  In fact, many hours were spent simply reading on the porch. We even managed to forget which day it was for a while!

Thank you for sharing your comfortable home with us. Even on cloudy days, the house always felt bright and airy, especially the fantastic sun room. We appreciated the tide clock as going to the beach became the center of our days here. Such a lovely place.

I have to say that the pictures of the house on the website did not tell the full story. My angel and I were here for a private weekend and simply said, the beach house was spectacular! It completely blew away our expectations! The weather was spotty, but sunny when we needed it to be. And, along with romantic walks on the beach searching for shells, we had plenty of places to drive and explore. We've traveled the world over and truely, this has been one of the most wonderful places to stay. We'll be back for sure.

What a beautiful spot! Enjoyed the beaches and Keji. Also, enjoyed studying all the interesting art and mementos that seem to have been carefully chosen and collected over many years. Francis Louis House is a great place to stay.
