Lockeport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Ragged Island Retreat is a newly constructed, modern prow-fronted cottage that takes full advantage of its ruggedly beautiful setting. Protected behind a stand of pines, the cottage has a view of sparkling waters and, at low tide, miles of golden sands.

Ragged Island Retreat is located at the end of private road in the sparsely populated community of East Ragged Island. Overlooking the inner bay, the cottage has a thoughtfully filtered view of the pristine waters and sand bars beyond. About 15 minutes to Lockeport and the beautiful Crescent Beach and around 30 minutes to the Historic Town of Shelburne

The main floor consists of a well-designed, fully-equipped compact kitchen, open-concept living and dining room; downstairs guest bedroom with a queen size bed, 4-piece bathroom and a laundry/utility room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a queen size bed; a second guest room with a set of bunk beds and a loft seating area.

Floor to ceiling windows and a large deck complete with garden furniture and a BBQ, expands the living space outside. Breathe the sea air and soak in the natural beauty that surrounds the cottage. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the many moods of the Atlantic Ocean.

Local Area

Lockeport hosts a number of festivals and events during the summer months: Canada Day Celebrations, Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women in Song and the Lockeport Sea Derby. 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.

A charming and historic town Shelburne is 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 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!).Ragged Island Retreat has a Saturday to Saturday rental period.

Use it as a base to explore the area - there are several long white sandy beaches within a 15 minute drive. Go clamming right by the house; walk to the many nearby swimming spots.
