Guest comment, 2006.

�All of us came home with the most wonderful memories of "the best
family vacation yet" (and we've been doing it for more than 15
years!).The house and the scenery were wonderful...We loved the
small nearby communities...people were incredibly friendly and
helpful. The lighthouses (especially Walton, thanks to Gloria�s
information) were so interesting. Adventures on the beach at
different tide times was so unusual and fascinating. All of it was
so special. And thanks so much for supplying the ping-pong
table...we did have quite a tournament where we all participated.
The croquet, badminton and the wonderful space for our kite flying
added to our enjoyment. Also, we all thoroughly enjoyed both the
fossil walk at Rainey Cove and the very spectacular tidal bore
rafting experience. Three generations of the C. Family, Texas,
California and Massachusetts.



Shore Haven House by the Sea

Shore Haven offers the opportunity for the vacation of a lifetime,
absorb the sites and sounds of the Atlantic ocean and the beach.
It's a peaceful private sanctuary on the Atlantic ocean, with all
modern conveniences, breathtaking views, a private beachfront where
you can swim in the mellow salt water, explore tidal pools, surround
yourself with the experience of the ocean sounds of surf, walk for
miles on the sculpted sand beach, or enjoy pastoral fields, and
wooded and brookside walkways.

Shore Haven is far from the hustle and bustle of city life; and yet
it's still close to all that the city offers, if you choose.

This custom built, modern house of exceptional quality provides
superb, luxury accommodations for up to 12 people (four bedrooms, 2
bathrooms).

The main level offers over 1,000 square feet of first-class living
space. It's wonderfully designed to capitalize on the amazing ocean
views and great floods of light. The living room, dining room, &
kitchen offer a spacious open-concept layout -- with huge windows
looking out over the water. For an outdoor view of the water, patio
doors lead from the dining area onto the large deck -- complete with
a gas barbecue. All of this is tastefully decorated with high
quality & comfortable furnishings (a sofa and three recliners) hand-
crafted leaded-glass light fixtures, and original art. The gourmet
kitchen with hand-built butternut cabinetry is completely equipped
with six full-size appliances -- a dishwasher, fridge, stove,
washer, dryer, and microwave and quality cookware and dishes.

The main level has two spacious bedrooms -- both with queen-size
beds. The master bedroom is furnished with contemporary Scandinavian
teak furniture. It features an ensuite door to the four-piece
bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom (queen) offers a
wonderful view of the water. The bright ground floor of the house
provides 2 more bedrooms (queen, twins) a 3 piece bath with superb
sit-down shower and huge ocean-view recreation room. The recreation
room is equipped with a ping-pong table. Satelite TV, a DVD player,
telephone and mini-stereo are also available.

A private and very charming ocean view summer house (with ocean view
deck, three piece bath, kitchenette, a double pull-out and bunks )
is also available for an extra rental fee of $600 Canadian. This is
a perfect private space for large groups or a quiet retreat for
reading, relaxing and listening to the roar of the surf.

The location of Shore Haven House by the Sea, the Noel Shore, is
rightly known as the 'undiscovered jewel' of Nova Scotia, the area
offers un-paralleled ocean views, miles of all but deserted beaches,
the awesome spectacle of the world's highest tides and a unique and
traditional experience of Nova Scotia. We are delighted to share this
peaceful 60 acres of "heaven" with others who also want to walk
gently on the earth and preserve its beauty and peace. All of our
guest services emphasize and illustrate care for the environment.

world's highest tides; swim in the mellow salt waters of the Minas
Basin; walk on the beach for miles in an area famous for fossils;

quail, pheasants, humming birds, osprey, owls, rabbits, raccoons and
foxes), discover the old Acadian house foundation near Evangeline
Brook.

We are directly on the ocean (Minas Basin), with miles of hard red
sand/pebble beach that can be walked or jogged (or carry your
mountain bike down and ride for miles and miles) and at low tide
there is a captivating vast sweep of sculpted, walk-able tidal
sands. There is private access to the beach along a path to the
shore and down a short flight of stairs (vertical height of 8 or 9
feet). Guests can relax with such activities as long walks on the
beach in an area famous for fossils and rock specimens (including
amethyst crystals), and ocean swimming.

The beach, the sea, the woodlands, Evangeline and Trout Pool Brooks,
the birds and animals and an amazing evening sky offer so many
opportunities for being "re-created" and restored by the beauties of
the sea and nature.
