Oceanfront Log Cabin with Hot Tub

This newly built cabin combines the efficiency of modern design with the charm and character of a traditional log home. Constructed from large honey brown logs, and featuring an open-concept kitchen, living / dining room and two bedrooms, the atmosphere is both spacious and warm. Both bedrooms have patio doors that open up onto the deck. The bedrooms have queen size beds; log bedside tables and plenty of closet space. The cabin comes equipped with a four-piece bath. At the heart of this Nova Scotia log home has a floor to ceiling field stone, wood-burning fireplace. Two sets of sliding patio doors lead out from the living room onto a large wooden deck that spans the length and breadth of the cabin and takes full advantage of its beautiful oceanfront view. Patio furniture and propane BBQ complete the picture and make for comfortable outdoor living. Walk down from the deck, soak in the hot tub and roast marshmallows over the open fire in the fire pit.

Castaway Ocean Lodge is located on the tranquil waters of West Green Harbour on Nova Scotia's Lighthouse Coast. This delightful cabin has a small rocky beach and private ocean access - perfect for launching the cabin's kayaks and exploring the shoreline.

Close to Shelburne, with its restaurants, shops and other conveniences, Castaway Ocean Lodge is nicely situated to explore Southwestern Nova Scotia. Yarmouth is a just over an hour away; while Halifax, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Peggy's Cove and Digby are all pleasant day trips.

Lockeport is known for its Crescent Beach - a stunning scimitar of white sand approximately 1.5 km or 1 mile long.

Lockeport hosts a number of festivals during the summer months: Canada Day Celebrations, Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women in Song and the Lockeport Sea Derby. The Canada Day celebration is always on the first of July, Harmony Bazaar typically takes place on the third weekend in July while the Sea Derby is usually on the second weekend in August.

Crescent Beach Centre hosts the Sea Derby and a number of family events, such as the Beach Bash. Also worth investigating is Nova Scotia's only Registered Historic Streetscape, made up of five houses built by descendants of Jonathan Locke between 1836 and 1876. The houses offer an interesting cross section of historical architecture with excellent examples of Colonial, Georgian and Victorian styles. A walking-tour guidebook is available at the Little School Museum, which displays artifacts from early settlers.

25 minutes away, Shelburne is a charming and historic town set on a truly spectacular harbour. The harbour is unspoiled by industry or shipping and is used primarily for recreational activities like sailing and boating.

Shelburne hosts a number of festivals and events over the year: Lobster Festival, Founders Days, the Whirligig & Weathervane Festival, and Pumpkin Festival.

The Lobster Festival is usually held on the first weekend in June. The town wide yard sale is also on this same weekend. Founder's Days takes place on the third weekend in July. The Whirligig and the Pumpkin Festivals are fall festivals that take place on the third weekend in September and first weekend in October.

The Shelburne County and Dory Museums are worth visiting. When John Williams established his dory shop in 1880, it was part of a dory-building industry, which at its peak, included at least seven shops along the Shelburne waterfront. During the early part of this century the shop employed five to seven men and produced 350 dories per year. The museum has a workshop where Dories are still built to this day (albeit not in such large quantities!).
