Great for golfers
Food does not receive top marks
Previous visitors don't mind the Fox Harb'r Resort's remote Wallace, Nova Scotia, location. In fact, many guests said the resort's scenic location and quiet ambiance are some of its greatest allures. Golfers can tee off on the Graham Cooke-designed championship course, while nature-seekers hike along scenic trails in the Wallace Bay National Wildlife Area Trail (about 8 miles southeast of the resort) or discover Nova Scotia by sea on a boating tour. Meanwhile, those looking for an extra dose of relaxation can indulge in a replenishing massage or lounge by the resort's mineral pool and hot tub. Afterward, retreat to your well-appointed accommodations, which are outfitted with kitchenettes, heated granite bathroom floors and terraces or balconies. However, some visitors were not satisfied with the food and service on the property. Note: This is a seasonal resort open between May and October.
