Rising Sun guest house is a beautiful restored Nova Scotia vacation home. 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, satellite TV 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 library or reading room 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, king-size wrought iron bed, side tables, reading chair and plenty of closet space. The guest room features two twin beds, a side table, and a dresser. Both rooms have closets. The bright, colourful bed linens on the twin beds give a sense of whimsy to the room which contrasts nicely to the muted serene colours of the master bedroom.
Clean lines, muted colours inspired by the surroundings and carefully selected antique 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 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 couldnĂ˘â‚Ź™t be better!

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.

We spent a week at the Rising Sun Guest House in June. Very tastefully done; it surpassed our expectations! Kingsize bed was a nice bonus. Could have taken a pass on the mosquitoes and ticks but it still provided us with a great base to explore this historic area. A bit out of the way if you want to hit the south shore 'hotspots', but if you're looking for a quiet, private, beautiful getaway, this is it!
I am pleased that you enjoyed yourself at Rising Sun Guest House. We had a very wet spring this year, so the mosquitoes and ticks were more abundant than normal. I am glad that they did not spoil your vacation.
All the best,
