A few days ago we shared the magical little woods in Clare that have been mysteriously transformed each December with hundreds of Christmas ornaments. If you want to dive even deeper into holiday decor (and food…and music…) White Point is another great stop to add to your holiday travel list.
White Point is one of the great local sponsors of our 2015 Local Wishlist, and last week, they invited us to come spend a night at the lodge to experience Olde Fashioned Christmas, White Point style!
The tree in the main section of the lodge is just one of the many trees you’ll find set up around the resort. My favourite is this one – play I-Spy with the many little critters that fill the tree!
This iconic getaway near Liverpool has been welcoming guests since the 1920’s. It’s an easy place to fall in love with regardless of the season. We met a couple during our recent stay who have been coming to White Point every year for 22 years!
Their Olde Fashion Christmas events take place each weekend from late November through to the end of December. There’s a dinner and dance, cocktail classes and wine pairing lessons, and sunset s’mores by a bonfire overlooking the beach.
There were even Jackalopes!
And lots and lots of lights to guide visitors back to their rooms at night…
We got a little candy cane greeting during our stay, and there were sugar cookies and cider waiting in the lodge in the afternoon.
There was lobster eggs benny, one of the local menu options celebrating lobster season in Nova Scotia…
And of course the many resident bunnies were there to greet guests!
Get an even better look at White Point Beach in all its holiday splendor in this great video they put together, or better still, plan a trip to see it yourself. As they recently reminded me on Twitter, some treasures can’t be caught as a photo, simply experienced.
There’s still a little time left to see the lodge done up for the season. Christmas is totally sold out, but there’s still a little space for Boxing Day and New Year’s!
