Quality assurance:Licensed & inspected by NS govt: The Noel Shore, is rightly known as the 'undiscovered jewel' of Nova Scotia, the area offers unparalleled ocean views, miles of all but deserted beaches, the awesome spectacle of the world’s highest tides and a unique & 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 & preserve its beauty & peace. All of our guest services emphasize care for the environment. Absorb the astounding views; listen to the roar of the surf from the 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; explore the tidal pools, the woodlands & meadows; fish for sea bass; follow our Trout Pool Brook to the very special place where it burbles gently across a sandstone shelf & cascades in a beautiful little waterfall to the sea, watch the abundant wildlife (including deer, eagles, quail, pheasants, humming birds, osprey, owls)
Perfect for large gatherings of family and friends: Shore Haven is an ideal location for gatherings of family and friends for holidays or special occasions such as weddings, reunions, anniversaries. A unique experience of the sea and nature with lots of room to spread out, indoors and out. 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 nature.
Lots to do without leaving home: Endless hours of enjoyment & relaxation are available on the miles of beach, the meadows, brooks & woodlands on this peaceful 60 acres. Fabulous open-air and/or glassed-in sea view of the world's highest tides, indoor & outdoor games (croquet, badminton, volleyball, ping pong table). Fish for sea bass right on our beach and cook it up in the gourmet kitchen. Relax in the sun on the deck while listening to the roar of the surf. Wonder at the soaring eagles over-head, fly kites on the meadow, walk the beach for miles.

“We are just thrilled to be coming back to our “beach heaven” at Shore Haven for our fifth perfect family holiday. How we have all missed the beach, the peace, the views, the house, and everything. Can’t wait to return.”
