Welcome to Brier Island and Brier Island Lodge, Where the Bay of Fundy And Your Perfect Vacation Both Begin !
We are happy to announce that we will be opening in a limited capacity on June 1st, 2020.
We, like many tourism operators, are unsure of what the future will bring, but we will do what it takes to make your visit to Brier Island Lodge both a safe and relaxing one.
One of the major changes for the 2020 season will be in our restaurant. We are set up for in-house guests for breakfast and supper but with a smaller more select menu.
Some of our beautiful ocean view rooms have kitchenettes and take-out food options, as well as general stores, are available on both Brier Island and Long Island.
The whale watches of the area have been given federal approval to sail on July 1st 2020. We do not have details on the whale watches procedures and policies at the moment, please contact them directly.
Please note that Brier Island Lodge asks and strongly recommends wearing masks in our public spaces when social distancing is not possible! We will not turn away those who can not wear a mask due to health issues nor will we pry into your private health issues.
Those who are able to wear a mask are encouraged to do so. Dr.Strang has said: Masks will not be enforced. The province is taking a co-operative approach and he asked that people do not make assumptions or pass judgement when they see others not wearing masks."
Brier Island Lodge, perched atop the cliffs of Brier Island and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, offers you comfortable, oceanfront accommodations along with a unique Nova Scotia regional dining experience and whale watching tours.
Brier Island is a rugged diamond in Nova Scotia's crown, home to an industrious seafaring people, an amazing variety of flora and fauna, and some of the best sunsets you will ever see!
Marking the entrance of the world-famous Bay of Fundy, Brier Island offers visitors the opportunity to explore one of the richest marine habitats and coastal environments in the world.
Accessible by two short ferry rides from the end of Digby Neck, Brier Island offers a truly different pace of life for residents and visitors alike. The fishing boats still come and go as they have done for generations, the whales swim by as they have done since time immemorial, and the eternal tides rise and fall like clockwork.
For those who are looking for an escape from hustle and bustle, it does not matter if you visit Brier Island in the warm sunshine or cloaked in mysterious fog - you can't help but relax and slow down while you're here.
As Nova Scotia's eco-tourism destination, Brier Island is famous for it's whale watching, bird watching and coastal hiking. Reconnecting with Nature is very easy to do here; explore the miles of trails that criss-cross the island, see a coastal marine ecosystem in action at Pond Cove Beach or watch the seals sun themselves on the rocks at Seal Cove. Rock hounds can find quartz, agate, jasper, amethyst and even zeolite along our rocky shores. Being on the Atlantic Flyway Migratory Route, the area hosts hundreds of varieties of birds throughout the year.
