About Pam McKinnon
I am from Nova Scotia and my husband is from New Brunswick. While life took me out of the Maritimes for more than a decade, we now live in Halifax and make our way to Sea Mist as often as we can, year-round. I work in renewable energy and Dana is a lawyer.
Why Pam McKinnon chose Shelburne
The South Shore of Nova Scotia is a string of white beaches, ragged shores and quaint towns. So many things to see and do.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is a calm to Sea Mist that envelopes you when you arrive. It is quiet and beautiful. I love that there is room to roam and I can find a spot that suits whatever mood I am in or whatever the weather. There is such a variety of lovely spaces, to be as together or as solitary as you feel like, at any moment. Each day the clouds paint a new sky, and the waves sculpt a different beach. The moon and stars seem brighter. For me, the beauty of Sea Mist is the whole package. I love the older buildings; a home with character, that has changed over time, yet kept true to itself. I love that it is private, yet when you look back at it from the beach, above the trees and fields you can see other homes and a church of similar vintage, the lobster pound, the fire hall, a community. There is an old one-room schoolhouse, that stands there tiredly, still willing to support any bird that needs a place to rest. It seems part of a living postcard, from a simpler age. I enjoy going over to the lobster pound, walking in and having them weigh and sell me the freshest lobsters you can imagine. I love the sunrises, and the sunshine on the deck, and that it spills through the front windows in the kitchen and sunroom in the morning. And the meadow full of lupins, apple trees, and other wildflowers. And the butterfly bush. How busy they all are. And the walks on the beach. Bird watching at the marsh, a swim, picking apples and making chutney, curling up with a book in the sunroom, sitting on the deck with a glass of wine. Sea Mist feels like a special family gathering place from a different time.

Beautiful, restful property.
Beautiful place in a lovely setting. Owner is wonderful to deal with and very helpful. We had a great two-week stay.
Peaceful and quiet, except for the pleasant sound of waves crashing at the shore...
We just stayed a week at this property. We had a great time there. The beach is short walk away and was pretty much private to us, we saw a couple of residents walking their friendly dogs once or twice other than that it was our family and the beach!
The home is stocked with towels, bedsheets etc., there are washer, dryer, dishwasher etc., everything in working order and well maintained.
The only recommendation for future would be to have screen doors installed that would leave mosquitoes and other bugs out when loading or unloading the car or just spending time on the deck. Even with that it was a perfect place for me and my family, we had a great time, outdoors as well as playing board games, kids enjoyed making use of art supplies etc.
The owner of this property is extremely helpful, she went above and beyond to help us, not only did she answer 100s of questions I had prior to and during my stay, but she also went out of her way to get us breakfast items knowing that we are traveling with young kids and will be arriving late night. I have had never experienced this before and can’t thank her enough.
If we ever plan to visit south shore/Shelburne area, we will definitely stay at Sea Mist again.
relaxing and tranquil
Friendly and gracious owners. Enjoyed a wonderful week of peace and tranquility watching the mist come off the harbor and waking to the ocean view outside our window. Loved our stay and especially enjoyed star gazing at the dark night sky.
