Your Guide To Accommodations In Nova Scotia

Digby, Nova Scotia

In 1783 Digby was settled by a hearty band of United Empire Loyalists led by Rear Admiral, Sir Robert Digby, Captain of the HMS Atlanta, a 24 gun Brigantine, leading the North American Squadron.

In appreciation of Adm. Digby's leadership and guidance our early settlers from New York and New England named their new town in honour of their benefactor.

The Town of Digby has been an active fishing and lumber producing community throughout the years. Famous for the delicious scallops harvested from our local waters, spectacular vistas of The Annapolis Basin from our waterfront, clear crisp air, and of course the incredible tides (7 to 10 metres.) in our harbour, we offer our visitors a wonderful opportunity to visit or to settle in for a relaxed way of life.

Digby is central to many activities, including historic sites, some of the best Whale Watching in North America, lovely parks, hiking trails, and our own local championship golf course.

Located in Digby are a variety of accommodations such as B&B's and hotel and motels, cafes, restaurants, shops, and a full service marina for our yachting visitors, including the services of an active shipyard for major repairs if needed.

We also offer a wide variety of services and facilities in keeping with the role of Shire Town of Digby County.

Located near Rt. 101, a major highway, close to Digby Municipal Airport (the highest Airport in N.S.!), and the only year round ferry service to Nova Scotia arrive by ferry from Saint John, New Brunswick via the Princess of Acadia. Digby is also just a short drive to The CAT, which travels to Portland or Bar Harbour, Maine from neighbouring Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Digby offers entrepreneurial visitors a great place to start a business, or to grow an existing venture, in our Industrial Park.

We welcome you to come and enjoy our mild climate, friendly atmosphere, and old-fashioned peace and quiet in a lovely and relaxing setting.
