Guest Testimonials

Thank you for sharing Castaway Ocean Lodge with us. It's good to see a beautiful and solid house like that in Nova Scotia. We enjoyed the hot tub in the full moon light; went kayaking and swimming in the ocean, etc.

I would book another stay at Neptunes Rise in a heartbeat. We spent a lot of our trip on the porch off the kitchen, watching seals, deer, eagles, and osprey go by. My son stayed busy with the toys and books. It’s a totally private space, yet minutes from Shelburne and not far from many beautiful destinations on the south shore. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, and the property is lovely.

This is a very comfortable cottage, easy to "be at home" in! The view is breathtaking and an easy stroll to the wharf and beach. It's great!

What a beautiful home, wonderfully detailed and perfect for families. We enjoyed walking along the shore and watching the seals every day. Roseway Beach is spectacular, Shelburne was very nice and the food was wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing your home.
