Shorewood House is a stately four bedroom home, built at the time of Canada's Confederation (1867) by a prominent local shipwright. Its spacious rooms and elegant design reflects the optimism of Shelburne's shipbuilding era.
Light, bright, airy and spacious, Shorewood House has an elegant, yet comfortable, atmosphere. Beautifully restored and tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of antique furnishings and carefully chosen nautical mementos, Shorewood House is a delightful Nova Scotia vacation home that showcases the various travels of its sailing owners. It is impossible not to feel the good vibes emanating from this charming property.
Offering much more than a cottage; the ground floor features a large elegantly furnished living room with Apple Internet TV, an adjoining covered veranda, a spacious formal dining room, a 2 piece powder room with laundry facilities and a large modern eat-in kitchen with French doors leading out to an expansive deck with propane BBQ.
Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms - two with double beds and the other with a queen size bed. There is also a four piece bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a computer centre with high speed broadband wi-fi, and the 'Captain's study' with a single pine bed and cool vintage global memorabilia. Bed linens and towels are provided.
The expansive grounds are shaded by mature indigenous trees including Cherry, Black Locust, Maple and White Ash. Comfortable lawn chairs are everywhere so you can relax and enjoy the comings and goings of the waterfront or watch the migratory birds who also call this home.
Driving distances are about 25 minutes to either Lockeport or Barrington; 2.5 hours to the Halifax airport and 1 hours to the ferry terminal in Yarmouth.
Shorewood House has a one week FLEXIBLE rental period during the peak season (July and August) and three night minimum rental period during the shoulder seasons.
