Seascape Gardens

A sheltered and peaceful domain where you can relax after a day of outdoor adventure. A spa tub awaits you and is surrounded by a wooden deck for your privacy. Soft lighting adds to the ambiance of the gardens and extends the time you can spend here.

A pathway leads you through the garden, over a small stream, alongside the pond and into the courtyard where you can sit and read, chat or enjoy a drink before dinner. Various seating areas are provided throughout the garden, to sit and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity. There is an area devoted to growing herbs and vegetables which are used in preparing meals for our guests. Vines and climbing plants soften the fence and produce flowers and fruit which fill the air with a wonderful scent.

Outdoor Activities

We at Seascape Coastal Retreat are happy to share with you our vast knowledge of the outdoor adventure venues in the area.

Hiking: There is something for everyone, from a rugged and challenging wilderness hike, to a walk along a gently meandering pathway beside a picturesque river bank, or have a stroll along a secluded sandy beach. Take your binoculars along and see close up the whales and seals playing in their natural environment, look up and see an eagle soar, watch the seabirds hunt for food where the sand and sea meet. In the forest see moose, deer and hundreds of little woodland creatures go about their daily business.

Kayak: In beautiful bays filled with small islands where you can stop off and enjoy a secluded picnic. Inland lakes provide a wonderful and safe environment to kayak where you can come upon forest creatures taking a drink. Or for the more adventurous explore the rugged coastline and possibly spend time with a friendly pod of pilot whales.

The beach at Seascape Coastal Retreat

Beaches: Spend the day at one of the many beautiful unspoilt beaches the area has to offer, where you can have fun in the waves, go snorkelling, or just sit and gaze at the spectacular landscape on the oceanside or have a relaxing swim in the calm shallow waters on the bay side while watching the water dance and sparkle in the sun.

Golf: Spend your day golfing at the Highlands Links golf course which has breathtaking ocean and woodland scenery. Three more golf courses are close by, two are within one hour’s drive and the other about two hours away.

Whale Watching: Two and a half hour tours bring you regular sightings of Minke, Pilot, Fin and sometimes Humpback Whales. Also see Seals, Turtles and many varieties of seabirds.

Tennis, kayak lessons, fishing, and sightseeing tours are all available close by.

Paintings on this website were created by well known Nova Scotia artist Christopher Gorey. He and his wife, Lynn, operate their own Gallery & Gift Shop which is situated directly opposite us.

On any of your outdoor adventures take along a luxury picnic lunch, made to order by our gourmet chef.
