Welcome to the Ocean Hillside B & B.

Ocean Hillside, a charming 4-star B&B with relaxed antique Victorian decor is located in Digby, Nova Scotia, home of world famous Digby Scallops and some of the highest tides in the world. Diverse area attractions cater to all tastes: golf at Digby Pines, whale-watching at Brier Island, explore national historic sites at Annapolis Royal, hike and canoe at Kejimkujik National Park (don't forget the seaside), or soak up the sun on the French Shore beaches before visiting one of the many restaurants offering snacks to fine dining.

Stroll around Ocean Hillside's extensive flower gardens or relax on one of 2 patios against a backdrop of spectacular views of the Annapolis Basin and the Scallop Fleet, breath-taking sunrises and salty ocean breezes.

Wake up to enjoy an exquisite breakfast prepared specially for you by Bob, a culinary chef who has cooked for royalty and celebrities around the world. (Has he got stories!) French crepes, omelets, Apple pancakes, Eggs Benedict, the menu changes every morning. You'll wish every meal was breakfast.

Nestle down under one of Maria's beautiful artisan quilts sure to guarantee a refreshing sleep.

Leaving on the early ferry to Saint John? We'll pack you a fresh lunch. Less than a km from the Digby Ferry and 3kms from downtown, Ocean Hillside is close to amenities but still delightfully private and quiet.

Ocean Hillside provides a truly memorable and blissful experience. We look forward to seeing you soon.
