“Great location for active family vacation”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Are you looking for active family holidays at a little hidden away place on the Southern Novia Scotia coast? The hotel has the twin advantages of being both on a wide spread of an inviting beach and a lagoon. You will not be bored as you can do lots of water sports; kayaking, wave surfing and there is an indoor pool too if the Atlantic Ocean is too chilly for you. There are (very rundown) tennis courts and an interesting, links-like, golf course within walking distance.

The resort is spread out in a charming, non - crowded way as you can stay in your own little bungalows (most very nicely and intimately situated on the beach), in single floored attachments, or in the main house itself. Everything blends into the wooded environment in a pleasant way. The room for 4 we stayed in in one of the annex buildings were "nice" without being exceptional, with the bathroom especially being well equipped and laid out.

We ate at the good restaurant which had a varied and tasty menu and was delivered with friendly service and also enjoyed some drinks in the large open lounge during a rainy afternoon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the White Point and I would resume by saying that This resort is perfect for an active family break in a scenic and friendly environment.

Our families fourth stay at White Point. Continues to be a fantastic destination for large families with small children. Menu selection is good and the cabins, although rustic, are comfortable and well equipped. The property and beach is big enough that you never really feel crowded.

Whether it is recreation activities for rainy days or playing on the beach on sunny days, White Point will keep little ones busy offloading Mom and Dad. While White Point beach is a little rocky and subject to higher surf conditions for little ones, for a white sandy beach with calm waters, Carter's Beach in nearby Port Mouton is a good side trip on a sunny day that is only 15 minutes away.

Room Tip: The cabins furthest away from the lodge are the quietest with the least traffic. If you don't m...

If you like peace and quiet, friendly atmosphere, and the wonderful smell of the Atlantic, do yourself a favor and visit this cozy resort. Just a few minutes from Liverpool, where you can get a few two pound live lobsters, or have them steam them for you at a great grocery store with everything to make your visit memorable. Take a trip up to Digby and have some scallops. Don't miss the highest tides in the world around Port Royal.Drive the coastline up to Halifax for great ocean views. You can visit a place called Peggy's cove, not that memorable, although the memorial to the Swiss airliner that went down off the coast in very sobering, a beautiful tribute to the ones who lost their lives, and the people who tried to find survivors. We will go back. Two weeks just wasn't enough.
P.S... Bring a few warm cloths.

Wow BigEd518, it sounds like you did a great tour of Nova Scotia!
April can be a bit chilly as we come into spring but it's still lobster season as you found out. Enjoyed hearing your suggestions for day trips in the area, you had an eventful stay.
Thanks for sharing your tips on adventures to seek out while here.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around the island. Really beautiful spot and the new lodge is spectacular. They definitely paid attention to details with it. The beach is great and the cabin was cozy. They had water bowls all around for our dog and let us take her everywhere. Great, relaxing place.

We had a great week at the White Point Beach resort in May'14 - the suite was clean and we had a beautiful view of the ocean. We went for walks every day and it was only 5 minutes drive to the small town of Ocean Shores where there was plenty of things to see. we played mini-golf one day which was fun.

When we arrived at our lodge, the towels in the bathroom had makeup and hair on it as well as the drinking cups most were filthy and the ones that looked somewhat clean smelled like urine. I called to the front desk and they were very apologetic and reassured us that they would send some clean towels and cups. Sure enough not even ten minutes later a lady showed up without a smile and terrible attitude and asked us if we were sure the towels were like that when we arrived.... Of course they were, and that's why I called... Grrrrr. Another down fall was the tub! It's very small and not big enough for 2 in the King Suite... I give two thumbs down for whoever thought that was a good idea:(
Was hoping to lay out on the beach, but the weather was rainy and lots of fog. We could hear the waves, but not see them. We were hoping to have bfast out on the deck, but it was pouring down cats and dogs. We were also hoping to do some kayaking, but again the weather was yucky.
When we checked out there was no discount for staying the night.
On a positive note, the buffet was excellent!

Dear Kuziwa,
Really appreciate you reporting the issues you had with your room upon check-in and that we were able to address them immediately (even if it didn't come with smiles - which is odd for our team). As for the weather, we do wish we had a direct line to Mother Nature so we could deliver just the right conditions for each stay, but alas, we don't and don't traditionally offer discounts against weather...afraid that would be a loosing battle!
Hope you'll return and find your stay more enjoyable from all aspects,

Stopped for sandwich and drink at the resort restaurant. Outstanding service. Food and drinks were good. Even though we were passing through we were treated as guests staying at the resort. Will be back.
