Guest Testimonials

Couldn't be more perfect!
Red Head Retreat met all my needs: Pet friendly, On the ocean. Great expansive view from the cottage of the ocean. Old house charm with updated modern conveniences. Clean. Comfortable beds. Wood fireplace for cozy atmosphere. Comfortable distance to respectful neighbours. Off the beaten track. Just what I imagined in my mind's eye. Upon arrival, I jumped for joy - it simply could not have been more perfect!
 We stayed at Castaway Lodge with another couple and found the accommodations perfect. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the large log house, each with its own sliding glass door onto a private portion of the deck. We had a lot of fun cooking together in the well-equipped kitchen, eating each meal on the spacious deck with a spectacular view of the bay. We kayaked each day. (We brought our own kayaks, but our friends used and enjoyed the two single kayaks that come with the rental.) On a boating note, it's important to pay attention to the tide, and plan to return to the landing before the tide goes out any more than half way! The lodge is beautiful inside and out and feels clean and comfortable, balancing convenience with rustic charm. The hot tub worked perfectly, and we were able to gaze at the full moon from its steamy comfort on a chilly August night. Magical! Arrangements were easy to make, and the directions to the property were clear. A large binder in the lodge contains a lot of useful information about the area and the lodge itself.

 A bit of heaven in Nova Scotia
"Orchard Point" is a total escape from the rapid pace of life today. Beauty, privacy, and tranquility describe the experience. The home is tastefully appointed, clean, and very comfortable. We found everything we needed. Every sunrise and sunset made us reach for our cameras. We enjoyed exploring the pristine coast. Another benefit was the relative proximity of Shelburne with excellent places to eat and a full supermarket. Overall, we had one of the most relaxing vacations ever and would surely go back.
