A seaside cottage on Sandy Point just outside of historic Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Sapphire Cottage offers a peaceful retreat minutes from exquisite North Atlantic beaches, amenities, and Sandy Point Lighthouse. Port Shelburne is considered the third largest natural harbour in the world and Sapphire Cottage is located on its east shore providing magnificent sunset views year-round. The beauty of Nova Scotia's South Shore unfolds as guests tour surrounding historic sites, parks, and towns.

The space
Sapphire Cottage is a cozy 2 bedroom cottage with a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, relaxing living room, bright sun room, and a 3 piece bath room with laundry facilities.

Comfortably furnished and decorated, Sapphire Cottage is suitable for a family with children; a group of friends getting together; or for a couple looking for an authentic maritime experience. Painted in muted shades, the cottage radiates light. Overlooking the harbour, the sun room with its comfortable day bed and bistro table is the perfect spot to while away an afternoon.

Spend your day exploring beautiful beaches, picturesque bays, and historic towns; take a sunset stroll along Shelburne’s picturesque harbour; watch the moon rise over the ocean; gather around the fire pit and marvel at the stars overhead. It's a perfect cottage for anyone looking for a peaceful place to put their feet up and truly relax.

High speed internet keep you connected to the modern world, while the deer in the back garden, sailboats and harbour views are a constant reminder that you are "away from it all" in Nova Scotia.

Where you’ll be

Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Canada

Sapphire Cottage is located on the eastern side of Shelburne Harbour on an elevated property with gorgeous harbour views. The large front garden gently slopes down towards the harbour. It’s a short walk from here to the Sandy Point Lighthouse Beach and Community Centre. On the Oceanside of the road is a small seating area with 2 Adirondack chairs: the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the sunset. The back garden is private and has a fire-pit* with more Adirondack chairs for bonfires and star gazing.
It is about an 8 minute drive to the closest town of Shelburne where you will find groceries, boutique shops, museums, restaurants and bars, a craft brewery and Osprey Performing Arts Centre. Shelburne also has a number of festivals throughout the year.

Lockeport, a 25 minute drive, is home to 3 distinct beaches: Crescent Beach, Freddy’s Beach and Col. Locke’s Beach as well as a number of restaurants and shops. If you are into fiber arts, Becky’s Knit and Yarn in Lockeport is a must. Lockeport also hosts a number of festivals: a charming small-town Canada Day celebration; a music festival and called Harmony Bazaar and a Sea Derby.

A little further afield are the towns of Liverpool, Lunenburg, Chester and Mahone Bay. Liverpool has a nice selection of boutique shopping, museums, restaurants, galleries, and the Hell Bay Craft brewery. Lunenburg is well known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while Chester and Mahone Bay are charming coastal communities. It is a 2-hour drive to Halifax International Airport and 1.5 hours to the ferry terminal in Yarmouth.

I moved to Shelburne in 2000 and I have spent the last 22 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.
