The main lodge at the historic White Point Beach Resort, on Nova Scotia’s south shore, was destroyed by fire Nov. 12.
The lodge housed guestrooms, a dining room, kitchen, conference centre and swimming pool. According to media reports, all staff and guests had were accounted for and there were no injuries.
In June, the province loaned the resort $1-million from its Industrial Expansion Fund to boost marketing and upgrade infrastructure.
On top of that, the resort was contributing $400,000 to refresh rooms and recreation facilities. Work was expected to start in January 2012, and it’s unclear what will happen now.
According to media reports, the resort’s owners say they intend to rebuild, but did not give a timetable.
White Point Beach Resort was founded as a private hunting and fishing lodge in 1928 and has expanded several times over the years.
