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, the tranquil Aqua Spa – 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.


With the evolving COVID-19 situation, by recommendation of the governments, and for the health of our staff, guests, and community, we’ve made the responsible decision to push our grand re-opening until further notice.

If you have an upcoming reservation, we will be in touch shortly, if we haven’t already reached out. We are waiving cancellation fees during this time.

We would like to send a special note out to the many local businesses on the South Shore and around the world- you will get through this. We wish you safety & health. We encourage everyone to support local businesses in any way they can- buy gift cards, order online, or even send a note of encouragement.

For the most updated information, please refer to your local health authority.
