Rising Sun Guesthouse is a beautiful restored Nova Scotia vacation home. Carefully renovated, the house combines old world character with a modern coastal inspired style.
The main floor has a tasteful living room with a propane fireplace, satellite TV, and comfy seating.

Downstairs is a small library and a 2 piece powder room.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, laundry facilities and a full bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower. With a view of the bay, the sunny master bedroom is furnished in a classic design, queen-size wrought iron bed, side tables, and a large closet. The guest room features two twin beds, a large dresser and closet.
The casual charm of this seaside guesthouse is a relaxing retreat. Surrounded by wildflowers, stroll down the winding path to the rocky shoreline for a day on the water. Coastal living at it best!
Rising Sun Guesthouse is located in the village of Jordan Ferry, about an 8 minute drive to the historic town of Shelburne, where you will find restaurants, shops, museums, Osprey Art Centre, and other amenities.
The guesthouse is along the scenic Lighthouse Route, about a 2 hour drive from Halifax, and a great location to explore the beautiful south shore of Nova Scotia. From beach combing to hiking and biking, sailing and kayaking, there are lots of attractions and activities to see and do. Attend one of the many festivals, or spend an afternoon soaking up the sun in one of the nearby quiet white sand beaches. Take in a harbour boat tour or you can explore the historic lighthouses that dot the area's shoreline. Don't forget your camera!!
My husband and I stayed at Rising Sun guest house last summer and we had a great visit. The house itself is lovely and beautifully furnished, with a well-equipped kitchen and a dining room with a great view of Jordan Bay. There was a nice, well-maintained path down to the water, and beautiful peonies and lupines in bloom when we were there (late June). It's a quiet spot but with easy access to all the charming little towns on the South Shore, including Shelburne, which is very close by (and has a nice grocery store, coffee shop, etc.) and Lunenburg, which is a bit further but an easy drive. The house was spotless and the grounds were very well maintained. Really, everything was perfect. I just wished we lived closer so we could visit again this summer! I highly recommend this house if you are planning a trip to the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
Rising Sun is a charming well maintained guesthouse overlooking Jordan Bay. Carefully selected antique pieces add to the casual elegance of this seaside retreat. Enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the bay, walk down the winding path to the rocky shoreline where you can soak up the sun on the huge granite boulders. Spot playful seals playing in peaceful Jordan Bay.
