There’s something eternally evocative about a log cabin, chalet or cottage hideaway in the Canadian wilderness, and that’s exactly what you can expect at the coastal Pictou Lodge Beach Resort in Nova Scotia.
Though the complex is home to multiple cabins and a good array of onsite facilities, including a swimming pool, gym and even beach volleyball court, you can still feel entirely secluded while here, particularly when tucked away with the fire roaring and a glass in-hand! That is, before you make way for the restaurant and its mouth-watering food, or live music later on in the evening, of course.
The instant beach access and accompanying loungers at Pictou Lodge are also a real treat, as are the expansive grounds, atmospheric bar and restaurant – complete with sea views – which all adds up to a rustic, though endearing coastal retreat. Then, there’s the numerous outdoor activities available at this family-friendly favourite, whether the onsite games, swimming pool and kids’ playground, or the open water canoeing, hiking and biking trails which surround the property, maybe a round of golf at the nearby course; Nova Scotia’s variety is at your fingertips while here.
Within each of the various accommodation options, you’ll find a largely wooden interior and one or two retro stylings throughout. That said, bathrooms are modern, the fireplace and private terrace add an invaluable charm and each space is extremely well equipped, so any lack of refinement only adds to the character; meaning more time can be spent admiring the view!
One Bedroom Cottage
With ocean views and surrounded by trees, a queen-size bed and that irreplaceable private veranda, the One Bedroom Cottage is perfectly suited to couples looking for an intimate hideaway. A fully functioning kitchen, BBQ area and fireplace mean you may not wish to leave your front door at all while here!
Sleeps: 2 Adults.
Three Bedroom Cottage
The same layout, location and amenities as the One Bedroom Cottage, though with two additional bedrooms for extra space, perfect for families.
Sleeps: 6 Adults or 2 Adults and 4 Children.
Two Bedroom Chalet
A step up compared with the cottage option, as the Two Bedroom Chalet is slightly newer, which is reflected in the décor, and features additional comforts such as a Jacuzzi bath. The Chalet does still come with the same fantastic extras such as the private BBQ area, veranda and ocean views.
Sleeps: 4 Adults or 2 Adults and 2 Children.
Three Bedroom Chalet
Similar location and view to the Two Bedroom Chalet, though this option is on a split-level basis including a master bedroom with king-size bed, more space overall, an extra fireplace and larger Jacuzzi bath.
Sleeps: 6 Adults or 2 Adults and 4 Children.
Queen and King Suite
More rustic than the chalets, bedecked in wood throughout, the Queen and King Suite – which offer a queen or king-size bed accordingly – are more in line with traditional hotel accommodation, keeping the ocean views but forfeiting the kitchen and fireplace.
Sleeps: 2-4 Adults or 2 Adults and 2 Children.
Classic Hotel Style Queen and King Room
Modern and refined in their décor compared with the suites, though missing the guarantee of an ocean view. The Classic Hotel Style Queen and King Room option – which offer a queen or king-size bed accordingly – do have a fresh and clean feel thanks to an updated interior design, even if a slightly smaller floorplan.
Sleeps: 2 Adults or 2 Adults and 2 Children.
