The Digby Pines Resort is a seasonal coastal resort hotel located at Digby, Nova Scotia on the shores of the Annapolis Basin. The Pines is owned by the Province of Nova Scotia and is one of the province's three "Signature Resorts," along with Liscombe Lodge in Liscombe Mills and Keltic Lodge in Ingonish Beach.
The Pines first opened in 1905 as a large Second Empire wooden hotel built by Digby businessmen Harry Churchill. It was used in World War I as quarters for army officers. After the war, it was purchased by the Dominion Atlantic Railway and expanded as a seasonal resort to cater to the DAR's railway and steamer passengers. The DAR's owners, the Canadian Pacific Railway, decided to expand the Pines and replaced the original wooden hotel with the present building which opened on June 24, 1929.
The hotel was built in the style of a Norman Chateau, similar in style to Canadian Pacific's Algonquin Hotel in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. The hotel includes an 18 hole golf course, a large landscaped outdoor pool, 30 cottages, and extensive grounds with a spectacular view of the Annapolis Basin and Digby Gut. Hotel bell boys once dipped the hotel flag twice a day to the Canadian Pacific steamship SS Princess Helene as it called on Digby. Canadian Pacific sold its Dominion Atlantic Railway hotels in 1957. The Pines was purchased by the Province of Nova Scotia to provide a regional tourism destination and is currently marketed as the "Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa".
