Bunny-happy White Point Beach Resort Keeps Nova Scotia Hopping

White Point Beach

In honor of Easter, here’s what has to be the most bunny-friendly hotel on the planet.

White Point Beach Resort is an old-style getaway overlooking the Atlantic, on the southwest coast of Nova Scotia. There’s golf, tennis, a  spa, a beach, and plenty more. It feels like a place families have been coming for years.

And not just humans.

During an evening walk along the beach last summer, I encountered dozens of rabbits. They hopped around the lodge and individual cabins, and gave me a curious what-are-you-doing-here stare.

The resort doesn’t look after them, except for providing guests free bunny food at the check-in counter. Not bad, considering the price: rooms begin at just $89 a night Canadian, or about $73 US

The resort is basic, but perfect for summer. Its wood-paneled dining room served great food. I must have gobbled up a pound of mussels at its seafood buffet, along with salmon, chowder, plus blueberry pie for dessert.

But it’s open year-round, making it great for a romantic weekend anytime of year.

Just you, your loved one, and dozens of bunnies.

    Oh, I love this!! I stayed at a hotel on the Oregon Coast that also has bunnies hopping around! My son had a blast watching them romp around the grounds. They were adorable!
    It was also an affordable place and you can beat the experience of the bunnies hopping past your door! I think the hotel is a part of the Cannon Beach Conference Center.
    PS. Thanks so much for having me on your favorite blog list!

    I stayed there this past spring break. Absolutely awesome, even in the off-season. My friends and i got to play with countless wild bunnies, some of which walked right up to our feet. The ocean-front is to die for. Huge, beautiful Atlantic waves.

    Does this resort have many bunnies? My daughter loves bunnies and I hope that when I go there I can see more of these wonderful creatures.

    Thanks so much for mentioning us – indeed, we do love our bunnies at White Point, almost as much as our guests.
    Our furry hopping friends are with us year round and are a special guest around Easter…any time of the year actually. Here’s hoping you can hop over for Easter or any other time of the year –
    Have a great day!

    Nice post. I have always wondered what would happen if I lost my driver’s license on a trip. This is somewhat comforting news.
