Positives: The cottages are beautiful, the beach is amazing and Lockeport is a great, small town.
Negatives: The owners are not friendly. They treat their customers as business deals rather than the people who keep them up and running. They book people in and then cancel last minute, meaning they are unreliable. They would rather get a bit of extra money than please and accomodate a returning customer.
I would NOT recommend Seaside cottages because of their owners.
My finacee and I have stayed in Lockeport, Nova Scotia four times over the last few years. We stayed twice at the Seaside cottages and twice at Ocean Mist cottages that are just across the Crecent beach from the Seaside cottages.
The first time we stayed at the Seaside cottages we noticed right away that the owners were not that friendly but that the location and the propery were amazing! The cottages are clean, comfortable and the beach is undescribable. We actually got engaged on site during our second visit and I couldn't have asked for a better setting. We decided that it would be perfect to get married on the Crecent beach and have our small wedding party stay at the Seaside cottages. We inquired and the owner booked us in. He did not seem happy about our business but he said that if we rented all of the cottages out and some for a week long stay, he would "allow" us to have our guests stay at their cottages. We did not get a good feeling about it, but this is where we got engaged and he agreed to book us in. He told us he would email us in January to get a deposit.
After six months of wedding planning, all of which relied on the Seaside cottages for an overnight stay, we were still waiting for an email from the owner. After not receiving an email we decided to contact him. We told him that we could not take all of the cottages for a full week but that we would take two for a full week and the rest for the one night. He wrote back and told us that he didn't really want us to stay there anyways and that he would have to cancel our booking unless we booked more of the cottages for a week long stay. We couldn't aford to do so and at that point even if we could have we wouldn't have given him our business anyways. He treated us like a business deal, not a returning customer and he let us wedding plan for six months before telling us he didn't really want us to stay there anyways. He probably got another request during the time we were booked and decided he would rather have them stay so he canceled our booking. He is not a nice person and if he didn't want us there he should have told us that in August not January after months of planning.
I will never give my business to the Seaside cottages and from now on will book with the Oceanmist cottages across the beach. The staff are friendly, accomodating and treat their customers well. The cottages are beautiful and the beach is beautiful! I would recommend Oceanmist to anyone thinking of staying in Lockeport.

Comments: Wow, what a find! Beautiful cottage just feet from a mile long sandy beach. Beautifully furnished. Beds with goosedown duvets were so comfortable we slept until noon. Fell asleep to the soft sounds of the ocean waves. We highly recommend Seaside Cottages!
