We have been welcoming visitors ashore since 1970, always with the simple vision of offering others a special kind of coastal destination; a warm and inspired place to create treasured waterside memories with loved ones. Nearly 50 years later, Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre is still doing just that. We may have grown over the years, but our shores haven’t changed, the views still take our breath away and our vision is the same. We’re proud of our south shore heritage and way of life, and it still puts a smile on our face to give our guests a Nova Scotia experience like no other.
Our resort is set overlooking the many tiny islands of beautiful Mahone Bay – an area overflowing with dramatic stories of swashbucklers, sailors – and a pirate’s buried treasure. Originally called The Long Boat Inn with just 32 rooms, a boat house and a glass-walled dining room for scenic eating, Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre of today has evolved into a year-round, full-service retreat with sweeping coastal vistas, countless amenities and activities, a bustling marina, and warm Nova Scotian hospitality – that attracts visitors from all over the world. In fact, it’s our friendly east coast service that keeps guests returning again and again. Our crew is ready to welcome you, or welcome you back, to our home by the sea, with a vacation experience you will remember forever.
