About Katherine Slack
I am the owner of The Papery (Bank Street) Ltd. in Ottawa, where we specialize in social stationery and beautiful paper. My dream of living by the ocean sent me on a quest to find my perfect spot. I traveled around the west coast, Central America and the eastern seaboard before venturing to explore Atlantic Canada. As usual, I took the long way around!
Katherine Slack purchased this House in 2004
Why Katherine Slack chose Shelburne
I soon discovered that to find the sound of the ocean I needed a beach for the waves to roll in on. I went to many beaches; most are quite secluded. This house, in but not on Lockeport (the town versus the island) has the best of both worlds as it is back from the road, has room to breathe, but is still really convenient. The house was built in 1876. I uncovered the wide plank sub-floor, put in dormers towards the ocean and opened up the attic. It sits on a hill overlooking the beach with views of the open ocean. I can walk into town along the sand and back by the harbour boardwalk. A brook runs behind the rhubarb patch. There are wild rose hedges and a mature rhododendron near the back door. And it just feels right. I have made many friends since moving to Nova Scotia and relish my time there.

Cottage of your Dreams
SeaDream is the cottage of your dreams. Nestled atop a hill overlooking Crescent Beach. The bird song will wake you each morning and the sea will lull you asleep each night. The town of Lockeport is a community of kind hearted folk and the beach is a wonder to walk. We loved every minute, including our experience of being in the middle of Hurricane Dorian. Thanks Katherine!
Blue house on the hill
A beautifully furnished home overlooking the ocean with all attentions to comfort and convenience. Cooking a pleasure in gourmet kitchen.
Lovely house in an amazing setting
The house was clean, tidy and well equipped and had everything we required. It had an amazing outlook in lovely grounds. Crescent beach was fabulous. We spoke to lots of residents of Lockeport, who were all very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The grocery store had some gluten free foods, which for such a small place was quite a pleasant surprise. Overall we had a super time.
SeaDream was a dream ..
We loved the cottage (SeaDream). It was happily situated on a hill, facing the ocean. Beautiful views of the quiet village of Lockeport, N.S.. It was like a postcard. Our gracious host Katherine Slack was very kind and accommodating. We hope to return soon.
One of our favorite rentals...great house, friendly community and an absolutely gorgeous area! Thanks, Katherine!
Loved the old style of this home. Very well equipped, nice yard overlooking the beach and ocean. Owner was very accomodating and helpful. A true Nova Scotia experience. Would surely come back.
The Crescent Beach Centre is open during the summer months and has a wealth of visitor information. It is located near the house.
