Such a beautiful spot! Makes you really appreciate how lucky we are to live in Nova Scotia. We stayed at the Captain's House, the views, the bed, the deck.....impossible to pick my favourite thing. Oceanstone is a MUST!

We stayed in the Periwinkle cottage & it had the most beautiful views. The cottage was so cozy with a wood burning stove & cottage decor. The beds were so comfortable . Waking up, it was -8 outside & the waves were crashing on the shore, & was so comfortable inside. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be...

My husband and I stayed at Oceanstone for an overnight as a quick, easy getaway from home (Halifax) and we loved our stay - it was the perfect relaxing night away. The views are gorgeous, the staff very friendly, and the room perfectly lovely, clean and cosy. The perfect idea of a seaside cottage. Dinner at Rhubarb was delicious!

“A cottage that over looks the ocean is a must”
 of 5 bubbles Lisa652013, 6 Mar 2017 | Read review
“There are a few hotel rooms, like the one we had, most are separate cottages, so you would have more amenities in those accommodations.”
  • Sunset from the lobby/ bar area of the main building.
  • Room #2 in the main building.
  • Our very cozy room
  • The view from our room, on a cold day in March.
