Nova Scotia resorts are nestled among some of the most scenic landscapes in Canada. Whether you choose accommodations along one of the beaches or property in the heart of a historic city, you'll enjoy amazing scenery outside your window. No matter what your budget or where you plan to visit in the province, you could consider reservations at a romantic resort in Nova Scotia. Resorts pride themselves on high levels of service, a hallmark of the friendly people who call the island home.
The Keltic Lodge Resort and Spa (pictured) would look right at home in the highlands of Scotland. It's actually nestled along the Cabot Trail, consistently voted one of the most scenic drives in North America. This romantic resort in Nova Scotia sits high on a bluff overlooking Ingonish Beach. Since it opened in 1940, the Keltic Lodge has provided hospitality to countless happy travelers. Between the main lodge and the cottages, the Keltic offers 105 rooms, along with two restaurants, a heated outdoor pool, and a championship golf course. Like other Nova Scotia oceanfront resorts, guests are just steps away from the beach and all the fun that comes with it.
Two sister Nova Scotia resorts also provide backdrops for Atlantic Canada vacations. Both of these properties offer comfortable accommodations and amazing views. The Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa overlooks the Bay of Fundy. This chateau has nearly 150 rooms, including 31 cozy cottages. Besides the spa and hiking trails, guests avail themselves with tennis and a golf course designed by Stanley Thompson. A variety of vacation packages include meals, overnight accommodations, and activities all at a great value. Spa packages are perfect for getaways and romantic escapes, while the family-friendly package will suit anyone traveling with youngsters.
Another of the Nova Scotia resorts in the family is found along the eastern coast, just two hours from Halifax. The 68 rooms at the Liscombe Lodge Resort are spread among 68 chalets with fireplaces and porches overlooking the meandering river. The list of things to do is long at this romantic resort in Nova Scotia, including kayaking and canoeing. You could shop for locally made crafts in the gift shop, and enjoy fresh, local cuisine at the restaurant with a scenic view. Salmon is a specialty, cooked over a fire pit and served alongside fresh berries and locally made maple syrup. The resort's staff also can pack you lunch for your hikes or visits to the beach.
When the weather is warm, Nova Scotia oceanfront resorts are bustling. The Delta Sydney, located right along the boardwalk, has newly renovated rooms and suites with a harbor view. When you're not soaking in the views, you can turn your attention to the flat-screen TV, enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, or connect to the WiFi network.
Beyond the rooms, the Delta has a restaurant specializing in maritime cuisine and an indoor pool complex with a waterslide and sauna. This favorite of families and couples alike is just steps from the boardwalk, beautiful beach, and the Casino Nova Scotia, an excellent place to enjoy some gambling.
A stay at the Delta or one of the Nova Scotia oceanfront resorts is especially wonderful when the weather is warm and the days are long. But in the fall and winter, the resorts are a little quieter and often the prices are hard to beat. You'll still enjoy the same beautiful scenery even if it's too cold to go for a dip.
