Check out the Local Traveler Video that stayed at Oceanstone Resort recently and loved every moment with us
We could not have asked for a better destination wedding in Canada. Thank you to Liz (the owner), Roxanne, Troy, Grace and Taylor for making our dream wedding come true. We wanted to have a destination wedding that supported a province we loved and connected with. We wanted to share our great experiences of the Maritimes with our guests. Oceanstone was the best place to do that. From the moment we booked our wedding at this resort, we felt important! Roxanne was a huge help to me as I was planning our wedding from the other side of the country. The moment we arrived at the resort, I felt an instant relief. Not only did Roxanne, Troy and Taylor have rooms ready to go for our guests, but they had popcorn and lemonade ready for our guests. They helped me unload the SUV filled with wedding stuff and instantly went to work. I have never met a more organized team with large smiles on their faces. I swear – they were as excited for us to be getting married as we were. Every last detail was dealt with, and I never heard of any problems. Roxanne and Troy are true professionals, who really love what they do!
We hosted a lobster boil for our rehearsal dinner. The chef, Brian, is FANTASTIC! He not only prepared one of the best meals of our trip, but he provided entertainment for our guests as well. The lobster was sublime as were the salads and pies that were brought out. The set-up of the rehearsal dinner was right beside the ocean. I gave Roxanne some shells and candles and she made it look so romantic and elegant. Their staff, attended to all of our guests with their smiling faces, kind words and doing a great job at the bar! Every person had an amazing time at our first event.
The wedding… was… SPECTACULAR! Without Roxanne and Troy I would have been lost. I am sure of it…. Roxanne kept me and my girls on track without being demanding… she had the guys organized, ready to go and happy. Not only did Roxanne and Troy set up a gorgeous ceremony site, but there were 0 issues. I had an idea of what I wanted the wedding ceremony to look like and they hit every single point down to the last detail. Destination weddings are popular, but choosing a Canadian destination wedding was spectacular. We were able to introduce our American friends and family, as well as our Canadian friends and family to a part of our country that very few people get to see in their lifetime.
The accommodation’s were incredible. We not only were able to host a BBQ for our guests who were not part of the rehearsal dinner, but we also had a fire in the fire pits every night we were there. The views from the cottages and most of the rooms are great. You are in close proximity to the ocean and can hear and smell the ocean from anywhere on the resort.
The Rhubarb restaurant served amazing food! Their service is incredible! At 1030am they made 5 large pizza’s for my girls so we could eat while we were getting ready for the wedding. The knew our party, guests and even us throughout our time at the resort. We could not thank them enough for how delicious their meals were and refreshing their service was!
We could not thank Liz, Roxanne, Troy, Taylor, Grace and Brian enough for their hard work. We not only felt very loved and cared for, but our guests did as well. From the scenery to the service and from the cozy cottages to the sounds of the ocean at night, this resort is like no other. Maritimers are some of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life. I was lucky to marry one, but we were even luckier to meet the staff of Oceanstone and have them be a part of our day. Thank you Oceanstone for making our dreams become a reality. We could not have accomplished what we did without you and your staff. They are invaluable! And as Ron says “they all deserve a raise” LOL!
We will be back to Oceanstone… not for another wedding… but for our anniversaries down the road.
“Wow, Wow, WOW! Our vacation is almost over. Thank you for being the icing on the cake!”
“It’s always been a dream of mine to have a cottage by the sea…the perfect cottage with a great ocean view… It doesn’t get any better than this!”
“A perfect place to celebrate 35 years of happiness. We will try to return because once is not enough.”
“My husband and I celebrated our wedding at Oceanstone at the end of August and we could not be happier about the facility and the service. Everything was perfect right down to the minor details. We had multiple guests come up to us and thank us for choosing this resort for our wedding!
The wedding coordinator Lizzie is so wonderful and was there to help with anything we asked. She even helped us put out our center pieces and set up the reception area the day before the wedding. The day of the wedding she kept popping in to visit us girls while we were getting ready and offering to help. During the wedding one of our guests had a small child with him and Lizzie noticed that he had to leave during the meal to put her to sleep. Lizzie had his meal sent to his room for him and saved his dessert for when he came back to the dinner. That is just one example of the care and attention that the staff put towards the guests.
The resort is beautiful and very well maintained. They have just done an upgrade and the main lodge (where our reception was) is so beautiful and elegant that we hardly had to put any decorations out. The cottages that we stayed in are so wonderful and I’ve never slept in a more comfortable bed. I wanted to take the comforter home with me! There are fire pits outside the cottages and the resort supplies the firewood. We were lucky enough that a large portion of our guests were able to stay at the resort with us for a few nights and we were able to have bonfires on the beach with them. The staff also let us use the common area outside to have a lobster boil the day after the wedding. It was so nice to be able to have everyone together like that and not crammed in our cottage.
I am so thankful that we found this resort for our wedding and we can’t wait to go back for our first anniversary!
