We really enjoyed our few days in Moose Harbour the property, location and views were great. We used one of Helens local tips and really enjoyed paddle boarding in Shelburne.

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.

This property is a very special place. Amazing views, beautiful home, comfortable, quiet and private. We had a hard time leaving it even to go on our day tours. We loved the fresh air and breeze and the sound of the fog horn in the distance. We enjoyed take out seafood from Shelburne. Thank you.
