Carefully renovated, the house combines old world character with a coastal inspired modern style. The main floor of this stylish vacation rental has a tasteful living room with a propane fireplace and comfortable chairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen that is excellent for entertaining with gourmet cookware and an en suite dining room with a view of the bay and a French door that leads into the garden. Also downstairs is a small workspace and a 2-piece powder room. Upstairs are two bedrooms, laundry facilities and a four-piece bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower. With a view of the bay, the master bedroom is simply furnished with a classic design, queen-size bed, side tables, reading chair and closet. The guest room features two standard size twin beds, a side table, and a dresser. Both rooms have closets. Clean lines, muted colours inspired by the surroundings and carefully selected pieces all add to the casual charm of this seaside guest house. Surrounded by wildflowers, the garden is a restful retreat. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sun rise over the bay. Stroll down the winding pathway to the rocky (not sandy) shoreline to relax by the ocean. Huge granite boulders shaped by tide and time are the perfect backdrop for a day on the water. Put out a towel and sunbathe; walk along the shore; spot seals playing in peaceful Jordan Bay. For those of you who like to swim, there is an excellent sheltered swimming area just off the rocks. There is something about the salt air that promotes a peaceful, unhurried existence, where your troubles melt away and are replaced with easy problems like which beach to visit next, or what to have for lunch. So sit back and relax! Coastal living couldn't be better!More

This is a truly beautiful spot and the house itself is fantastic. We really enjoyed the views from the cottage but were not able to utilise the garden due to the swarms of mosquitoes present. Even getting into the car was a major operation. Luckily,...More

About the neighbourhood
Rising Sun Guest House is located on the eastern side of the peninsular in the village of Jordan Ferry; about a ten minute drive from the historic town of Shelburne where you will find restaurants, shops, museums, the Osprey Arts Centre and other amenities. Shelburne is half way along the Lighthouse Route - about an hour and 15 minutes from Yarmouth and about 2 hours from Halifax. An hour and a half from Lunenburg, and about 2 hours to Digby, it is a great location to use as a base from which to explore the South Shore.
