Garden doors open to a spacious deck overlooking Crescent Beach and Gull Rock Lighthouse, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia.

Summer Reservations: It's never too early to begin making plans for your summer vacation. We typically only rent by the week in July, August and September but will be posting a few short openings on this page within the next couple weeks. We still have some availability in early July and late August as well as the latter part of September.
Our Nova Scotia accommodation facilities are nestled among beach grass on the eastern end of Crescent Beach, Lockeport, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia. The mile long beach was made famous in the 1950's when it was featured on the Canadian $50.00 bill. The white sand beach forms a causeway that joins the island town of Lockeport to the mainland. Lockeport is situated in the heart of the Lighthouse Route on Nova Scotia's South Shore and is only 20 minutes from the historic town of Shelburne.
Each of our accommodation units is full equipped including a four piece bathroom. The kitchen features a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, coffeemaker, pots and pans, dishes, utensils, etc. The living room comes equipped with a sofa, cable TV, VCR and DVD, and a propane fireplace. Visitors can also access wireless high speed internet. Our bedrooms offer a double or queen bed in each room with all linens and blankets provided. A sixth cottage, which was built in 2000, offers the same cozy cottage feeling. This two story chalet has queen size beds in both bedrooms and the upper balcony offers a breathtaking view of Crescent Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The first floor also provides a more spacious living area.
Ocean Mist Cottages are open 12 months of the year. Our cottages are fully winterized and include a cozy propane fireplace. With fall comes cool, crisp air and beautiful colours. This is the perfect time for avid golfers to visit River Hills Golf Course, near Clyde River, Shelburne County (forty minutes away). The picturesque golf course offers discounts on green fees in the fall season and is open until the end of October (and one of the first to open in the spring). If you need a break from the winter blahs, Crescent Beach is said to be the most beautiful at this time of year. Stroll along the beach, then warm up in your cottage in front of the fireplace. Or become a storm-watcher. Words cannot describe Crescent Beach and the Atlantic Ocean in a storm. The wave action will captivate you, making it difficult to tear yourself away.
