World-renowned golf and spa resort

The Keltic Lodge rises majestically from Nova Scotia’s verdant pine forest in a spectacular setting overlooking the ocean. Dating from 1940, this resort is perhaps best known for being the home of Stanley Thomspon’s famed 18-hole Highlands Links Golf Course, which has been rated by Score Golf as one of the best in Canada. However, there’s much more to enjoy besides just golf thanks to the 5,000 square foot AVEDA spa, outdoor heated swimming pool and superb fishing opportunities. And after a busy day you can look forward to a meal at one of the award-winning restaurants before heading off to your luxurious and homely guest room.

Please note:

This property is located within a state park which requiers a park entry fee of $7 per person (not charged by the hotel).

  • Spectacular coastal location
  • Home to Stanley Thompson’s ‘Mountains and Ocean’ course
  • Several exquisite dining venues
  • Enjoy plenty of resort activities including a heated pool
  • Relax at the hotel’s AVEDA spa

Our worst expirience in Nova Scotia

The view is spectacular; the food sucks. We owned a well known restaurant in The Netherlands and a boutique Hotel in the South of France. The restaurants in the Keltic Lodge are a huge disappointment: Terribly overpriced, no creativity, ultra slow, and no interest to respond to our email. Please eat somewhere else, you save mony and you keep your good mood in beautiful Nova Scotia!

Terrible week-end

Toronto, Ontario

The good: The view. The bad: Everything else! Untrained staff, uncontrolled room temperature, noisy room and the list goes on. To top it off management decided at the last minute to close the bar and the dining room for a private function leaving us to eat finger food for dinner at the lodge down the street. When we complained at the desk all we got was an apology. We even wrote a letter to the general manager to complain and he didn't even bother to reply. What a shame!
