Overview

About the property

Two bed/two bath chalet with ocean and forest views

OCEAN VIEW CHALET is a tranquil, private cottage within White Point Estates and a short walk from White Point Beach Resort. .

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) 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 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 are also available, from the Resort at $9 per person per day plus tax; but their purchase or use may be restricted, due to weather or other capacity related issues.

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.

About Jeff Percy

A retired couple transplanted from Ontario with backgrounds in law, education and the civil service, we also enjoy offering the vacation rental 'Ocean Surf Cottage', as a vacation destination just down the road from White Point Resort

Jeff Percy purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Jeff Percy chose Nova Scotia

The chalet style cottage is designed as a vacation home and feels like a place to enjoy rest and relaxation - as opposed to a 'regular' house, where it is harder to feel on vacation. Situated high on its property and with nothing visible but rocks, trees and, most of all, the ocean, it feels isolated without actually being so. Having White Point Beach Resort right there, it offers the convenience of being at the resort but with more private and personal space plus the flexibility to reduce your vacation costs by cooking some meals at home - at substantially less than the two bedroom, kitchen-equipped accommodations of resort itself. Bottom line: we bought the property for exclusive use as a vacation destination for our visitors.

What makes this chalet unique

OCEAN VIEW CHALET sits atop a rocky ridge with sight-lines above the trees and towards the open sea all the way to the horizon.

Located within the two hundred acres of protected forest that is White Point Estates, Ocean View Chalet is one of only 45 upscale vacation and year-round residences that make up this private resort community. It is accessed though the grounds of the Resort and its ocean-side Golf Course.

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

Roads within the community are private, quiet and great for strolling or riding your (supplied) bicycles. The sky at night is DARK as there are no street-lights. Stargazing is amazing.

The Main Lodge of White Point Beach Resort is but a five minute bike ride away or fifteen minutes by foot via a scenic nature trail.

Ocean View Chalet is the affordable way to enjoy the facilities of a fully equipped house in a private and rugged solitude, within the purview of a premium resort destination.

The place to chillax!

  • 4 of 5

After 3 months driving (we film a travel blog) we wanted a place to stay for a week to recharge the batteries. We certainly found it with this place.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week there. It was early June so some super days and some cooler days. Warmer days we found a couple of seats overlooking the water which were ideal - ask the owners for directions, although not far they are easy to miss which is good as no one else is there.

The walk from the house to the shore is not obvious but once there the rocks make very good view points for the sea and wildlife.

Nearby resort is excellent. Close enough to be convenient yet far enough not to be intrusive.

The view from the bedroom balcony is very good and there are chairs and table to dine with a view.

Very comfortable living area with excellent wifi.

BBQ, fire pit and chairs outside so all good there.

We would return without hesitation and suggest you book it.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is a gem hidden high on a hill amongst the trees, with a great view of the ocean, the bay, and White Point Resort. The property is very neat, clean, well furnished and very well equipped with everything you could want to consider it your home away from home. Peaceful at night where you can see the stars, and the milky way all while listening to the sound of the ocean surf. Jeff also offered numerous additional tips and hints to make our stay even more enjoyable!. An excellent rental experience!

Owner's Response: Thank-you Ralph, especially for the reminder that with zero light pollution (other than occasional sightings of fishing boats coming in on the tide) star-gazing on clear moonless nights is absolutely awe-inspiring.

The chalet is the perfect place to rest and rejeuvenate

  • 5 of 5

We were due for a bit of rest and relaxation, and we found it at the Ocean View Chalet! The chalet was clean and well-appointed. Most importantly, the surroundings were beautiful and peaceful, creating a perfect environment for reading and relaxing. There is nothing better than going to sleep and waking up to the rhythmic sounds of ocean waves crashing on rocks. Finally, the chalet was perfectly located for day trips to beautiful hiking and cycling locations. We'll be back!

Ocean View Chalet was so much more than we expected

  • 5 of 5

It was nicely furnished, beautifully landscaped, great views from the property of the ocean, could hear waves crashing. Nice location to travel east and west along the south shore and up to Digby and the Bay of Fundy. An hour and a half to Halifax and all it offers, beaches, lighthouse routes, etc. and would highly recommend it to anyone. Truly enjoyed every moment of our eight day stay. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nancy, It's always nice to hear when expectations are exceeded. We all know that feeling: you are about to arrive at your vacation spot, hoping it won't be a letdown after you have looked forward to it for so long. We trust that the rest of your Nova Scotia vacation was just as pleasing.

The Main Lodge of White Point Beach Resort is a five minute drive away or fifteen minutes by foot via a scenic nature trail.

Beyond the resort itself there is so much to see and do within an hour's drive, that the resort facilities are but icing on the cake.
