Welcome to the Digby Pines

A hotel can be so much more than a place to lay your head when you’re away from home. It can be the heart of a community or at the center of the greatest stories you’ll ever tell your friends.

Digby Pines tells a unique story to everyone who experiences it.

It might be where you met the love of your life or where you found yourself again after losing them.

It might be the chill running up your spine as you catch a shadow out of the corner of your eye or the employee who tells you what that shadow might have been…

Let us share some of our favourite stories from "The Pines" right here on the "Digby Pines Podcast"

    Sydney Caron

    Sydney Caron

    Sydney Caron was born in Toronto, Ontario and lived there her entire life; that is, until the Spring of 2019.

    That's when Sydney landed in Nova Scotia, Digby to be more specific. She's a Guest Service Agent at the Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa and she loves where she lives and what she does.

    Sydney is a "Big City" person no longer and she has embraced the small town life in her home away from home, and says the best part of the area are the people who have made her feel very much at home.

    Eleanor Nixon

    Eleanor Nixon

    Eleanor Nixon was only three years old when she moved to Digby, Nova Scotia with her parents in 1931.

    Eleanor lived onsite at the Digby Pines for much of her childhood as her father, William “pop” Hanson helped build the well known golf course.

    The Pines is quite special to her and she tells some of the wonderful stories of her youth spent living in cottage 1 in the winter and then moving to a small house near hole #8 in the summer.

    Stories of covering the pool windows in lye to prevent the birds form flying into them; getting a horse that her parents knew nothing about until they got a call to pick it up and an accident aboard a British submarine during World War II that found them tending to a young sailor and ended with a dinner aboard the sub as a "thank you"
