Come Home to Nova Scotia’s Authentic Seacoast

Here at the head of the largest bay on Nova Scotia’s Atlantic Coast is a place we call the Authentic Seacoast™. Our home is defined by a stunning geography of secluded coves and bays and the rich history of almost four hundred years of continuous settlement. The Authentic Seacoast™ is vacation destination like no other in Nova Scotia.

This can be a place of remarkable solitude or great adventure. The choice is entirely yours. But whatever you choose do, you will leave our Nova Scotia vacation getaway rested, restored and changed forever.

From our spectacular location you can explore Cape Breton Island and the Cabot Trail, live the highland experience of Antigonish and discover the remote beauty of the Eastern Shore and Marine Drive. When you finish your exploring (or a good nap), we're waiting for you with award-winning Nova Scotia food, drink and accommodations. Enjoy a relaxing stay in affordable luxury at historic DesBarres Manor Inn or East Coast casual at Osprey Shores oceanfront resort. Experience our regional cuisine and Wine Spectator rated cellar in the restaurant at DesBarres Manor Inn, legendary fish n’ chips with a local craft beer at the Rare Bird Pub or fresh roasted organic, fair trade Full Steam Coffee at Skipping Stone Café & Store. A tour of our distillery where we create our GLYNNEVAN Whisky, Fortress Rum and Sea Fever Rum and our brewery where we make our medal-winning Rare Bird Craft Beer will raise your spirits.
