We spent 5 nights with kids aged 6-15. The kitchen is great for family meals and the screened in porch is lovely for morning coffee and evening reading. We were able to go to 6 beaches all within 15-45 mins drive. The house supplied it all, books, games and puzzles, boogie board and inner tubes for the beach. The best quiet sleeps we could ever want.

Rockland Cottage is a lovely waterfront rental that provides guests with a secluded getaway. The house was well provisioned, extremely comfortable, and lacked for nothing. The screened porch provides a cozy haven in all weather (and trust me, we had ALL weather). I especially enjoyed the private beach, the gorgeous sunsets and the extremely friendly rabbits.
The house is away from it all, but a short drive to Lockeport and Shelburne. This was my first visit to this part of Nova Scotia and it was most enjoyable.

Management response:

Thank you for choosing a Sandy Lane Vacation Rentals property. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself at Rockland Cottage, and that you enjoyed the screened in porch: it is wonderful to sit outside in torrential rain (which we had this past week) and enjoy the wildness of the weather while staying dry. I hope to hear...
