Overview

Photos and Description of the Hunts Point vacation chalet rental

Two bed/two bath chalet with ocean and forest views

OCEAN VIEW CHALET IS A ROMANTIC ESCAPE overlooking White Point Beach Resort enjoying views above the trees and far out to sea.

Apart from the accommodations offered by the Beach Resort itself, Ocean View Chalet is one of only a handful of adjacent properties available for vacationers.

The chalet is secluded with no neighbors in view, a "Hilltop Hideaway". The only sound is the ocean, breaking against a dramatic and rocky shoreline about 300 feet away and accessible within a minute's walk.

Roads (more like nature trails really) are private, quiet and great for strolling or jogging. The sky at night is DARK as there are no street-lights or other sources of light pollution; so stargazing is amazing. Within a five minute walk of the chalet are additional deserted and dramatic ocean viewpoints (see pics).

A stay at Ocean View Chalet offers significant savings compared to similar accommodations offered by the Resort - and which usually sell out; yet the Main Lodge of the Resort is only a walk away - fifteen minutes along a gorgeous waterfront nature trail (or a 5-minute drive). The Resort's dining and lounge facilities (and, of course the beach) are open to the public. We highly recommended the hospitality services, both for their ambiance and for the quality of the food (the wine list is extensive).

If you want the total Resort experience (short of staying there), day passes can be purchased. Facilities include indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, saunas, kayaks and games rooms. Passes are usually available (subject to capacity or special event constraints) at $9 per person per day or 15 passes for $90.

Feel like being pampered? The Resort's "Ocean Spa" offers a variety of relaxing massage therapies as well as other aesthetics services - all at reasonable prices (especially compared to the big city!).

Besides White Point beach Resort, there is lots to see and do while you are here, much of it within an hour's drive.

Two minutes to the west of the entrance to the resort lies the quaint seaside fishing village of Hunts Point (and at Seaside Seafoods, some of the best clams this side of Digby), a couple of minutes beyond that is the beautiful Summerville Beach Provincial Park with its mile long white sand beach. The Broad River empties into the bay and is crossed by the Trestle hiking Trail running both inland and back to the historic town of Liverpool.

Also at Summerville Beach you will find the designated "Taste of Nova Scotia" eatery, the Quarterdeck Grill as well as kayak and surfboard rentals.

Further down the coast, about 15 minutes, you can hike through the Keji seaside park with its vast seal colony, view historic lighthouses, fishing boats and stroll both sandy and rugged rocky coastlines.

Start your day with with breakfast "at home" followed by a relaxing stroll along the private road to the nature trail and perhaps on to the lodge. There, aside from a delicious reasonably priced breakfast buffet - for days you don't feel like cooking - there is a choice of menu items). Walk along the sand, feed the bunnies. Later, rent a kayak or surfboard or, with the purchase of a day pass ($9), make full use of all facilities available to White Point guests. These include indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, hot tub, pool tables, tennis courts, outdoor shuffleboard etc. There is also the Ocean Spa with all manner of massage options - hot stone, Swedish, sport etc.

After a day of touring, the Founders Lounge at the Lodge, or your own private Chalet are there for your enjoyment.

Ocean View Chalet is the affordable way to enjoy the facilities of a fully equipped house in a private and rugged solitude, yet with excellent dining and resort facilities virtually on your doorstep.

OTHER TOURING IDEAS

Within a Fifteen Minute Drive: Head south down Hwy 103 through Port Mouton to one of Nova Scotia's finest beaches: Carter's Beach. With a parking area for all of fifteen cars (and rarely full), it is a series of three crescent shaped beaches with offshore islands reminiscent of the Caribbean (minus the palm trees of course). If you like deserted, this is it, though it has become a favorite stopover for sailboats and the occasional tall ship.

Drive east on Hwy 3 to the Town of Liverpool, one of the oldest towns in the Province. Noted for its colorful maritime history, it is a treasure trove of historic homes, many of which date back to when captains of industry and of the sea vied for the most impressive homes. One of them is now a fascinating museum of local history.

Within a Forty-five Minute Drive:

To the south (a twenty-minute drive) is the wild rocky coastline and surrounding natural splendor of the Seaside Adjunct of Kejimkujik National Preserve and its seal colonies. A 'must sea'.

In the opposite direction, the Town of Bridgewater sits on the LaHave River. There are wonderful scenic drives on both sides of the river down to the sea, from where you can follow the coast by road. Have lunch at the LaHave Bakery where they bake their own breads and pastries and continue on to the LaHave Islands, Crescent Beach and Petite Riviere.

Just beyond Bridgewater are the major attractions of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg, the latter a Unesco World Heritage Site. Home to the Bluenose, a beautiful tall ship in port for daily excursions, Lunenburg is also a departure point for spectacular whale-watching excursions.
