Awesome and luxurious place for a fun and peaceful getaway

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Jun 2024
We just stayed for four days at Fox Harb’r. It is about 30 minutes from the closest decent-sized towns, in a rural setting right on the ocean. The spectacular entry area onto the property sets the tone, with amazing floral gardens and a gate to get in or out. Then it’s a two or three minute drive just to get to the buildings. There are around a dozen decent-sized buildings which have the units that one might call hotel rooms. Then you pass into a neighborhood with at least 30 gorgeous houses, of all different styles. Some are duplexes. I believe some are owned and the owners put them back into the rental pool. We stayed in a newish one near the end of the street (which is almost a mike long). There is a huge restaurant/clubhouse building. The upstairs restaurant is very formal and beautiful…..the downstairs one is semi-formal. There is a big pool/spa/exercise building, with a nice, huge pool that we used. And finally, there is a big events center (weddings, corporate events, etc). This doubles as the lobby/reception area. (It even has its own airstrip...literally right next to the housing units.. We saw a couple of jets there during our stay). All buildings are of top quality finishes...gorgeous and quite luxurious. It was quite busy here for most of our stay. (But the golf course didn’t seem crowded). I will give it five bubbles, as we enjoyed numerous fun activities: electric bicycles, archery, axe throwing, skeet shooting, pickle ball, swimming, basketball, tennis, billiards and horseshoes. And it was very peaceful and safe (lots of helpful staff, security, etc). We made reservations a few hours in advance for some of the activities. There are some nice nature trails for hiking or biking. (The resort's boats had not yet been put in the water so we didn't do that activity).
There were a couple little dings, such as the pool being a bit cold. And it could use a casual, cheaper, "cafe" type restaurant. (I was going to give it four bubbles as it can be very expensive....the nicer houses are around $1,000 a night, I believe. We stayed in a very nice, four bedroom house, but we did not pay for it, so I am not sure of the exact price. But then I did a bit of research and found that the very nice "hotel room" type accomodations can be had for only $300 U.S. per night on some summer nights.....and they are very nice, big units. You can even get a discount of some sort for joining their "Preferred Hotels and Resorts" reservation system/club. For what you get at this resort, those prices are very reasonable. So I think it merits five bubbles).
There are very few resorts like this that I know of. Probably it is the finest resort in the Maritimes. It continues to grow and if you can afford to stay here, I highly recommend it.

The moment you drive into the resort property, you feel like you are in another part of the world. It is an amazing spot in the backyard of the friendly, laid back country side of NS. It is luxury without without the pretension and central to major city airports in NB/NS. And the golf course is in a league of its own.

Hello, I really enjoy the privacy of the resort and the friendly staff. Even with all the construction that’s going on Golf was very enjoyable. It was disheartening to see hair left in the Jacuzzi.
