A great spot, set back from the road, very private, with a beautiful view of the water. The beds were comfy and it was nice having a bathroom on both floors. The cottage was well equipped, especially the kitchen, we also enjoyed the satellite tv, books and crib board. We saw a momma deer and her babies most days on the front lawn

The Black Loyalist Museum in Birchtown is worth a visit. We had a fun time at the UFO interpretive centre in Shag Harbour.

Thanks to Helen at Sandy Lane vacations for her help in arranging this great vacation.

Management response:

Hi Nancy, You are welcome! I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at Shipwrights Cottage. Perhaps we will hear from you again at some point in the future. All the best Helen
