Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little house, right on the water. Everything represented in the pictures is just how the place is, and it is very soothing and relaxing there. We had a wonderful time and will go back as soon as we can...we loved it! It's a great place to rejuvenate. Fred and Barb are great hosts, too.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Seaside Shanty. My children (3 and 5 years) had a great time combing the adjacent beaches for seaglass, shells, and little critters (crabs, mussels, etc.), and watching the boat/fishing activity at the warf. The view from the deck makes this shanty a very special place to stay. The steps to the second floor were quite steep, which wasn't a problem for adults, but a bit tricky for the kids, and the bedrooms have large beds, but the rooms themselves were quite small (which was fine with us). We were asked to keep water use low through the use of bottled water, paper plates, limited flushing, etc. There is lots to see and do in the area. Overall a fantastic stay. Thank-you!

Seaside gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this little seaside gem! The kids loved playing on the nearby rocky beaches and finding coastal treasures. The cabin was very well and thoughtfully presented with lots of small personal touches which made our stay here a joy. Ideally situated for exploring Lunenburg and Halifax. Thank you!!
