Comfortably furnished and decorated, Shipwright's Cottage is suitable for a family with children; a group of friends getting together; or for a couple looking for an authentic maritime experience. Satellite television and high speed internet keep you connected to the modern world, while the deer in the back garden, sailboats on the harbour and ocean views are a constant reminder that you are "away from it all" in Nova Scotia.

The space
Set back from the road at the end of a long private driveway, Shipwrights Cottage is a charming vacation rental home. It features a large fully kitchen that has everything you will need for home cooking. There is a separate dining room, living room and a den with a pull out sofa. Painted with muted shades, the cottage radiates light. Picture windows in the living room and sliding patio doors in the dining room take full advantage of the harbour view.

Upstairs are three bedrooms. The master bedroom spans the width of the house and has a queen size bed and a spectacular view of the blue waters of Shelburne Harbour. The second bedroom has a double bed while the third bedroom has two twin beds. There are two bathrooms: a 4-piece bathroom downstairs with a bath and a shower and a 3-piece bathroom upstairs with shower unit. Laundry facilities are also located upstairs.

Guest access
A large veranda extends the living space outside. Patio furniture and propane BBQ make for delightful evenings of seafood and ocean views. So, breathe in the fresh sea air and feel yourself relaxing into the peaceful rhythm of Nova Scotian life.

Other things to note
Shipwrights Cottage has been welcoming guests for years. The cottage opens for the season in mid-May and closes in mid-November. It’s so beautiful and relaxing that you will want to stay a week, but if that’s not possible please ask and if there is availability we can offer a three night minimum rental period. This cottage is also available for longer term rentals.

Location

Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada

Shipwright's Cottage is located in the small fishing village of Gunning Cove situated on the western arm of Shelburne Harbour. It is approximately 15 minutes' drive to the historic Loyalist town of Shelburne. Shelburne is renowned for is spectacular harbour, interesting museums, beautiful historic district, delightful restaurants, Marina and performing arts centre.

Historically significant, Birchtown is a short 5 to 10 minute drive. Birchtown has the distinction of being the largest free Black community in British North America in the late 18th century. Birchtown's Black Loyalist Heritage Centre Museum is dedicated to telling the difficult and heart wrenching story of the Black Loyalists - some of Canada's first settlers - who landed in Port Roseway as part of the United Empire Loyalist when they evacuated from New York in 1783.

Roseway Beach and Carleton Village Beach are both within a 10-minute drive. Shelburne is fifteen minutes away; Yarmouth is an hour away; while Lunenburg, Digby and Halifax are all pleasant day trips.

I moved to Shelburne in 2000 and I have spent the last 19 years working in Nova Scotia’s tourism industry first as a Bed and Breakfast owner and now as an owner/operator of Sandy Lane Vacation Rentals. I love my adopted home. I think Nova Scotia’s South Shore is an undiscovered gem and I look forward to sharing my local knowledge with you. When I am not helping my guests find the perfect home for their vacation, I'm off exploring new parts of the world.
