Located on Nova Scotia's picturesque South Shore, White Point is a quintessential beachfront holiday experience – all year round. The Main Lodge is the heart of the property – sprawling, yet cozy, with crackling wood fires and warm, maritime hospitality. Here you will find a variety of dining options, indoor swimming, recreation areas for kids of all ages, a gym, and a Games Room – all with spectacular ocean views. Accommodations vary widely across the Resort, with everything from family and pet-friendly Canadiana-style cottages and rooms – to modern, adult-only Oceanfront Treehouses, and Lakeside Glomes – complete with private hot tubs! You can also rent a self-contained cottage with access to all of the Resort's amenities, including our white sand beach. Kids love our resident wild bunnies, seasonal supervised activities, and places to play. Couples love the romantic backdrop. And families love parking the car and totally unwinding. The adventurous can try surfing Atlantic waves or paddle boarding on our freshwater lake. The Boathouse is filled with everything from life jackets - to bikes - to pickleball racquets for use on our new pickleball courts – and it's where you’ll find our summertime ice cream shop. Our staff are always here to help. We can book you a massage, a tee time for a little seaside golf, or set you loose on a sightseeing adventure to nearby the UNESCO Town of Lunenburg. For those seeking a good old-fashioned beach holiday, you've found just the spot. Casual, and unpretentious – bring a good beach book, or kick off your shoes for a little beachcombing. Tides in, tides out. Unplug, and give in to beach mode. The evenings bring starry skies, bonfires, live music, socializing in our Founder's Lounge, or relaxing in a colourful wooden chair – soothed by the acoustics of crashing waves. Built as a hunting and fishing lodge in 1928, White Point continues to embrace our natural surroundings, and we encourage all White Pointers to slow down, and focus on the simple beauty that is Atlantic Canada.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
White Point Beach Resort offers a tranquil retreat with its serene atmosphere and live music, which guests frequently commend. While the resort's prime location and diverse amenities, including live entertainment and family activities, are often praised, some reviewers warn that the food is pricey and not up to par. Although the rooms are celebrated for their cleanliness and coziness, opinions are divided due to noise, outdated decor, and occasional exterior untidiness. Service experiences also vary, balancing compliments for staff friendliness with concerns over efficiency and communication.

Just returned this afternoon from 2 nights in cabin#19 at White Point Resort. We had a certificate from 2009 but was told in 2010 it would never expire. We did try to use this a few times but a fire and Covid got in the way. This was all explained when stay was booked on phone with WP staff. Upon arrival at WP the staff brought in the manager to speak with us. The Manager said this certificate expired years ago and was no good. I explained being told in 2010 it would never expire and the lady who booked us said she would find confirmation before we arrived. The manager went on to explain he had no way of knowing if this was a forgery and could not verify this because everything had burnt in the fire. I replied would the certificate not be taken from us if used. Fortunately a staff member( Jenn 😃) kept looking in system while manager present. Jenn was able to find proof in the computer system. This set a bad start to our weekend to celebrate a birthday. Never been accused of committing forgery before. Our cabin was very cold when we arrived. Room was 10 degrees . Thought a staff member may turn up the heat before guests arrived. Not a comfortable room to watch tv because of position of sofa. Neck has to be turned to watch tv. One chair, no ottoman. Did like hearing the ocean pounding while going off to sleep in a very firm not so comfortable bed. Our supper that night was terrible! I did make a reservation weeks before our stay for a table by the window which was not ready for us. I don’t think there was a table reserved for us. Appetizer $20 for 3 scallops and lettuce. Surf and turf $54 each ….overcooked tough lobster, no flavour dry steak, dry mashed potatoes, carrots cold and not cooked. . My husband never did get his drink he ordered, no refill offered for water. The only good thing was sticky toffee pudding. Crazy expensive bill $167.90 for a very terrible meal. So very disappointed especially for a celebratory supper. Breakfast the next morning ok. Staff doesn’t hear your requests. Had to get up and ask again for jam and ketchup. Had to ask for coffee refill. Lunch we asked for take out because didn’t want to deal with dining room. Supper …appetizer a bowl of seafood chowder consisted of 3 muscles, 1 scallop and 5 or 6 pieces of potato in creamy sauce. This did taste good but no real substance for $18 ! Again very expensive and disappointing. Hamburger and fries ok but small portion for price of $22. Chicken Churchill ok but way too much tomato sauce $28. Again everything below average for a high price. Would not recommend eating here for poor quality food and an expensive price.

We stay every December in cabin 602 with my family as a pre-Christmas and Birthday getaway. This is our 6th year. The cabin is overall well appointed but lacks some basic kitchen stuff - oven mitts. Overall our stays are just great - kids love the pool, games room etc. BUT the food consistently every single year never fails to disappoint. We eat in the dining room every year and this year even ordered off the pub menu because why spend 40 dollars on an entree when you know in advance it’s going to be terrible. I ordered the vegan burger (thinking it would be a safe option) and it was literally so burned I couldn’t eat it. The fish and chips were soggy and the ribs were meatless and underwhelming. We keep coming back for the location and overall atmosphere but my god, I’m not sure why the food can’t get sorted out. The server who was great took the burned burger off the bill but I would rather have decent edible food. And it’s not just a one off because it’s our 6th year and we knew the food would be disappointing. Shame on us i guess! We will keep coming back but likely start cooking our own food in the cabin. Spending hundred of dollars for a party of 6 for mediocre food is a waste. Drinks are good though!

It has been a while since we visited White Point, and even longer since we stayed overnight. We were happy to return! Our cottage was quite comfortable, once we figured out how to adjust the heat. We enjoyed our delicious meals in the dining room, and spent the rest of our day hiking on the beach and a nearby trail. My husband took advantage of the pool, hot tub and sauna. Even in damp, overcast weather like we had during our stay, White Point is a beautiful place to visit. Friendly, helpful staff make the experience that much better. We'll be back!

My husband I and stayed here for the weekend. We had the treehouse & charcuterie package. This was one of the nicest places we have stayed. The treehouse is perfect and has everything you need for a weekend of relaxing and unwinding. The view and atmosphere instantly gives you a calm and peaceful feeling. The entertainment in the main lodge was fun and the food was good. Also had a massage in the spa. Would highly recommend spending at least an hour with Dorothea. She is amazing. The perfect getaway.

Excellent stay and vacation. People in Nova Scotia are awesome. Staff at White Point all seemed so happy, friendly and helpful. We had an RCI exchange which was a private house with 2 bedrooms, a great kitchen, and a terrific fireplace (with firewood delivered every day).

My husband and I travelled to White Point for a weekend away. It was our first time staying there. We stayed in one of the glomes which were amazing! They are so beautiful and fully equipped with everything we needed. The main lodge was warm and inviting. The food at the restaurant was delicious. Drinks were a bit pricy. Loved the live music and roaring fireplaces. Only complaints were we found our bed quite firm, the bbq was dirty with old food not burned off, and the hot tub was dirty. We own a hot tub and felt the water was quite dirty there.

Loved every minute at this resort and discovering the nearby town of Liverpool. Beautiful ocean views, nice swimming pool and great walks on the beach were the activities we enjoyed at White Point. We also had the dinner buffet and it was delicious. In Liverpool we visited the Cosby sculpture park (do not miss this), the Trinity Anglican church which is 200 years old, the Hank Snow museum and the Astor Theatre. WE also visited Varnus Hall in nearby Brooklyn. We also drove to a nearby resort and had lunch at the Quarter Deck which might just be the best fish and chips I have ever had in my lifetime!

We loved our stay in an oceanfront treehouse. These accommodations are away from most other cabins and are very private. The view of the ocean from the balcony was lovely and peaceful, though it could get hot and there is no shade. Might be good to have some sort of patio umbrella available. While the other treehouses were occupied, we never saw or heard anyone else. The king bed was comfortable, as were the chairs. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was great. Liked the coffee and tea in the mini kitchenette. Staff were friendly and helpful all around. Also it was easy to book golf. The restaurant was good and the music in the Founders Lounge was entertaining each night. Overall a great stay!
