“Matrimonial Manor for By the Sea Wedding”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

As the Mother of the Bride, I stayed several nights of the 4 day reservation for the Bridal Party. This heritage home is meters from the finest harbour in Nova Scotia and 3rd largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney, Australia and Havana, Cuba. It is equipped with everything a family and their friends could need including children's toys. This stately two floored building also has a nice verandah out front and an upper deck and lower patio in the well-kept garden behind the house. The architecture is lovely and inside has all modern amenities and extras (bedding, towels...etc.) while being centred in the town. it is within walking distance to the Seadog restaurant on the waterfront, tourist centre and many little shops hidden on the side streets near the oldest buildings in town. My only complaint is the check-out time of 10:00 am which leaves no time to do the long list of clean up chores which usually housekeeping is responsible for in many other properties......all bedding stripped and dishes washed along with the rest of the regular clean-up leaves little time to finish especially if the wedding is the night before departure. So I suggest any guests consider that before renting the house and leaving the morning after a wedding. Other than that, our family and wedding party enjoyed the house and compliment the owners on its charm.

Management Response

I am so pleased that you and the wedding party enjoyed themselves at Shorewood House. It really is a beautiful property. I am sorry that you found the check-out check-list to be onerous, especially after attending a wedding the night before. As you know it is a large beautifully maintained house and it usually takes a solid 5 to 6 hours to clean before the next guests arrive at 4 p.m. However, having said that, if I had known that you would require an extended check out time, I most certainly could have been more flexible and accommodated your request. I wish your daugher and her new husband a long and happy marriage. All the best, Helen

I rented this lovely home for a month. I was welcomed by its charm and personal ambience. Lots of whimsy and wonder in the nautical artifacts found in each room. Cosy, homey and functional. I loved it. I miss it already and I've only been gone a week!

We stayed for a week and found Shorewood House to suit our needs perfectly. Quiet, comfortable, well-thought out amenities and 50 steps from looking out at stunning sunsets. The kitchen and outdoor BBQ worked well as did the plumbing. No cable TV, but reliable high-speed internet makes up for it.
