The Southwest Breakers is located on the eastern shore of Lockeport Harbour on Nova Scotia’s scenic Lighthouse Coast in the harbour front village of Rockland – just down the street from Rockland Cottage and The Swim House.
A path leads from the lawn to the waterfront where you can stroll along the shore to the local sandy beach – a sheltered cove. The nearest beaches are Louis Head Beach at about 10 minutes away and Lockeport's Crescent Beach about 15 minutes away by car.
15 minutes away Lockeport is the closest town to this cottage. Lockeport is known for its Crescent Beach - a stunning scimitar of white sand approximately 1.5 km or 1 mile long.
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. The Canada Day celebration is always on the first of July, Harmony Bazaar typically take place on the last weekend in July while the Sea Derby is usually on the second weekend in August.
Crescent Beach Centre hosts the Sea Derby and a number of family events, such as the Beach Bash. 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.
25 minutes away, Shelburne is the closest town to this cottage. 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, Writers Festival, the Whirligig & Weathervane Festival, and Pumpkin Festival.
The Lobster Festival is usually held on the first weekend in June. The town wide yard sale is also on this same weekend. Founder’s Days take place on the third weekend in July. The Shelburne Writer’s Festival is hosted by the Osprey Arts Centre and typically takes place on the first weekend in August. The Whirligig and the Pumpkin Festivals are fall festivals that take place on the third weekend in September and first weekend in October.
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!).
