Guest Testimonials

What a beautiful spot! Enjoyed the beaches and Keji. Also, enjoyed studying all the interesting art and mementos that seem to have been carefully chosen and collected over many years. Francis Louis House is a great place to stay.

We had a wonderful relaxing vacation. The house was just perfect for us. We all loved going to the beach and exploring the area. The kides were fascinated by the wildlife. We will recommend the house to our family and friends.

 Moose Harbour View is an excellent spot for a getaway. Really beautiful views. Even had deer walk through the yard in the evening.

 Fairytale Vacation
Staying at Castaway Ocean Lodge was a fairy tale experience. The spacious luxurious log cabin has all the charm of a Hans Christian Anderson storybook tale with its wide view of the sea. A short stroll downhill brings you to another dreamy vista of islands rising from the mist. We never wanted to leave and mostly just made short trips to buy seafood for the grill and fire pit. The oceanfront kitchen is beautiful and thoughtfully stocked. The hot tub and bath towels were a treat. By far the most magical, romantic and private place we’ve ever rented anywhere.
