We stayed for 4 nights and had an amazing time. This house is absolutely beautiful and the views are wonderful. We had everything we needed, with comfy beds and great facilities. We'd love to come back one day. Thanks to Helen at Sandy Lane Vacation Rentals for all the tips for local beaches, shopping, restaurants and nightlife!

As the Mother of the Bride, I stayed several nights of the 4 day reservation for the Bridal Party. This heritage home is meters from the finest harbour in Nova Scotia and 3rd largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney, Australia and Havana, Cuba. It is equipped with everything a family and their friends could need including children's toys....

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
Shorewood House is located in the heart of Shelburne's Historic District. A stone's throw from the harbour and a short drive to a number of deserted
beaches , Shorewood House offers a good base from which to explore the South Shore. It is approximately an hour to Yarmouth and two hours to Halifax, with lots of interesting places to explore along the way.

The guesthouse is about 100 meters up from the harbour where there is a boardwalk, a swimming area and park. Over 16 km long, Shelburne Harbour is a large natural deep-water harbour that supports a number of small fishing villages, the town of
Shelburne , some lobster fishing wharfs, the Shelburne Harbour Yacht Club and Islands Provincial Park .
