Nova Scotia treats for cyclists and supporters

April 6, 2020

Did you know that you can stand anywhere in Nova Scotia and be no further than 67 kilometres from a shoreline? It may be the second-smallest province in Canada but it ranks up there with things to do and see while you circumnavigate the rugged shoreline. Here’s my favourite “only in Nova Scotia” traveller treats:


Fox Harb’r Resort

Jan 5, 2018

At our recent visit to Fox Harb’r Resort in Nova Scotia, I found this to be another resort with an outstanding kitchen that attempts to grow at the property as many of the herbs, greens and salads as are needed, plus they stock a trout pond where fat trout are caught fly-fishing for sport (then they are released back to the pond) or for the kitchen (see Fox Harb’r Resort).


Touring Fox Harb’r Resort with CEO Steven Joyce

Jan 4, 2018

There comes a certain point in executive life when security and longevity means more than flash and frivolity. Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa is a veritable masterclass in how to make life on earth as meaningful, enjoyable and worthwhile as possible. Here, opulence is a feeling rather than merely gilded in gold leaf; it’s that delicious sensation of security in solidarity with a sustainable vision. My tour of this spirited, high-net-worth community on Nova Scotia’s north shore reveals the core ethos of one such ‘grand gesture’ clan, the Joyce family of Tim Horton’s fame.


Diamond In the Rough – Affordable Luxury in Nova Scotia

Dec 13, 2017

Not all Canadian investors have dreams of cashing out and buying an overpriced condo in Phoenix. Some prefer the comforts of home: the familiar culture, the political stability and the relative ease with which a family get-together can be arranged when no international flights are involved….


Luxury Without Pretension

Oct 31, 2017

Ron Joyce’s name is synonymous with the Tim Horton franchise but he also is responsible for Fox Harb’r Resort, a five star, four diamond resort and gated community in Wallace, Nova Scotia sprawling over 1,100 acres of impeccably manicured gardens and spectacular ocean views……


Oceanfront Luxury Without Pretension

Oct 30, 2017

Our destination, Fox Harb’r Resort in Wallace, NS. is the realization of one man’s dream. That man is Ron Joyce, co-founder of Tim Hortons.
“In 1987, when I first saw this marvelous property, I thought, ‘This should be a National Park.’ Five hours later I was the lucky owner of 1,100 acres of wilderness on the water with 6 kilometers of ruggedly beautiful oceanfront shoreline,” recalls Ron Joyce.
Mr. Joyce did not have to travel far to discover this parcel of paradise, as it is just down the road from his quaint hometown of Tatamagouche. The idea of giving back to the community greatly appealed to Joyce.


Luxury Suites, Food, Wine and Golf at Nova Scotia’s Fox Harb’r Resort

Oct 20, 2017

There’s plenty more than golf at this upscale destination
When Ron Joyce sold his share of Tim Hortons (to Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas), he wanted to do something very special with the money: build a luxurious resort oasis on Northumberland Straight in Nova Scotia. Fox Harb’r Resort is the result of that dream.  Fox Harb’r is located on the warmest water north of the Carolinas, directly across from the Prince Edward Island (of Anne of Green Gables fame).


Fox Harb’r Resort in Nova Scotia is Right on Target

Oct 11, 2017

Skeet shooting is just one of the many activities offered at Fox Harb’r Resort, a 1150-acre property, located 90 minutes north of Halifax on the Atlantic Ocean’s Northumberland Strait. Guests can also try their hand at fly fishing in the fully-stocked trout ponds, ride horses or bikes along the Foxtrot Trail overlooking the ocean, watch seals play on a kayaking excursion and, of course, golf.


Fox Harb’r Resort in Nova Scotia is Right on Target

Oct 10, 2017

“I’ve never held a rifle before,” I mention to Peter Phillips, our clay shooting instructor at Fox Harb’r Resort.
“You still haven’t because it’s a shot gun,” he retorts good-naturedly.
Oh…So, I’m not at all confident as I’m being instructed on how to shoot the clay pigeons that fly up into the air as targets. When it’s time to try in on my own, I whisper “pull”, with my cheek tight against the gun. The target soars into the air and I follow it. Bang! The gun jerks back and the clay disk breaks into pieces. A perfect shot! “Pull”, I say again, and I hit the target this time, too. My heart is pounding, and I can’t stop grinning. Having never had any success in anything sports related, it’s a novel sense of exhilaration….

Fox Harb’r Resort

Oct 7, 2017

Fox Harb’r is a gem of a resort located in the north central part of the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia among the breathtaking scenery of the Northumberland Shore. Fox Harb’r is the brainchild of native son, Ron V. Joyce, C.M., a hugely successful Canadian entrepreneur. Ron’s vision was to create an exclusive, secluded, luxury resort community that offers every amenity one could wish for including its own private airfield, world-class golf, award-winning spa, and locally sourced gourmet dining.


Nova Scotia

Oct 7, 2017

We began our visit on the Northumberland Shore in the north central part of the Province at a hidden gem of a resort called Fox Harb’r (see review at Hotels & Resorts). This exclusive, secluded, luxury resort, offered every amenity one could wish for including its own private airfield, world-class golf, award-winning spa, and gourmet kitchen.

Fox Harb’r: Home-Away-From-Home, Not Too Close, Not Too Far

Oct 6, 2017

As much as we revel in all things Toronto, long weekends are a great time for reminding oneself that you can get by in life without spending every moment of your time in the Centre of the Universe… and in fact, life is better when you can get away from the hustle and bustle from time to time.
By publishing this article after the working day on Friday, many of you won’t see it until you’re in a cozy spot on the living room couch or stretched out in bed with your iPad. Or, lucky you if you’ve made the drive to a weekend retreat and are now ensconced in a favourite seat, tea or coffee on the side table, and a treasured view out the window. That’s the kind of place I like to put myself in when settling down to read about somewhere a little exotic, a little removed from my day-to-day; it’s a good way to help induce the dream.


Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa – The 5 Star Experience in Nova Scotia I Never Expected

Oct 5, 2017

Don’t get me wrong. I always love visiting Canada and provinces like Nova Scotia offer so many one of a kind experiences that I know traveling there will be an adventure. But what I don’t necessarily always expect from Canada is to find a great luxury hotel or resort. I think that’s why I was almost immediately won over by the remarkable Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa in Nova Scotia – I never expected it. When we travel, those unexpected experiences are usually the best and by the end of my far too brief stay, my time at the Fox Harb’r quickly became the hospitality highlight of my time in the province.


Living the Dream: Fox Harb’r Resort

Oct 2, 2017

Wallace, N.S., is more than just a peaceful town — it’s a place I discovered during a weekend getaway at Canada’s premiere oceanfront resort, Fox Harb’r. Located north of Halifax, N.S., and situated above the evergreen hills stands a private community overlooking the north shore. With its scenic views and luxurious flair this hidden gem offers its guests and residents a unique combination of luxury living balanced by the humbling essence of nature. Founded by Canadian businessman Ron Joyce (co-founder of Tim Hortons), Fox Harb’r offers gourmet menus, a private vineyard, championship golf course, spa, sport shooting, an oceanfront tennis court and more.


ReJoyce – Fox Harb’r Resort

Oct 1, 2017

Wallace, NS – I gaze in wonderment as the setting sun silhouettes a small lighthouse standing on a jagged coastline where the Mind-Blowing Fox Harb’r Resort drifts off into the Northumberland Strait. It’s a Maritime scene worthy of a frame. Only “he” could create something like this, I think to myself, but in this case the “he” is Ron Joyce, co-founder of the Tim Hortons coffee empire, who built Fox Harb’r Resort just a few kilometers down the road from his boyhood home in Tatamagouche, a small community on Nova Scotia’s economically challenged north shore.


Marina Landing features a waterfront enclave of single-level homes at Fox Harb’r Resort

Sept 25, 2017

Ron Joyce’s vision of a luxury resort and residential community on the shores of the Northumberland Strait continues to develop. The co-founder of Tim Hortons and owner of Jetport Inc. created the 1,150-acre Fox Harb’r Resort in the late 90s as a tribute to his hometown of Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. With the help of locals, he took the site and created an 18-hole championship golf course with an airport runway, rental accommodations, private residences and many resort amenities. His vision has translated into a boost for the local economy and tourism.


The Many Charms of Nova Scotia

Sept 22, 2017

We began our visit on the Northumberland Shore in the north-central part of the island at a hidden gem of a resort called Fox Harb’r. This exclusive, secluded luxury resort offered every amenity one could wish for, including a private airfield, world-class golf, award-winning spa, and gourmet kitchen.


Finding Luxury on the East Coast

Sept 20, 2017

“Fully immerse yourself in east coast culture in the most luxurious way,” should be the slogan for Fox Harb’r Resort. Dining amongst the likes of Ron Joyce, Tim Hortons co-founder and Fox Harb’r founder, and Sidney Crosby, the world’s greatest hockey player, on our first night should have been an indication of how our weekend at Fox Harb’r Resort was going to go. I knew we’d be in for a treat.


Clee Varon Joins Fox Harb’r Resort as Director of Business Development

Sept 19, 2017

WALLACE, N.S. — Clee Varon is the new director of Business Development at Fox Harb’r Resort, bringing 30 years of Canadian hotel- and resort-management experience to the position. Varon spent 18 years at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, including nine as director of Sales and Marketing for Chateau Lake Louise. She was also the executive director of Sales and Marketing at Skyline Hotels & Resorts.


Keenan: Linking food production to preparation a sensible plan for clean eating

Sept 7, 2017

I recently had the opportunity to visit an exemplar of clean eating, the upscale Fox Harb’r Resort in Wallace, Nova Scotia. Some online reviews call it a “Billionaires retreat”, and it comes by that term honestly, having been created by Tim Hortons co-founder Ron Joyce. And, while they do have packets of Tim Hortons coffee in the rooms, I didn’t see a single donut there. What I did see is a common sense approach to linking the production of food to its preparation. The resort has its own greenhouses with a PhD-holding horticulturalist in charge. Michael Stewart eschews the use of pesticides and commercial agri-chemicals, relying instead on his own formula for potting mix, which includes Epsom salts and trace elements.


Places to Live: Fox Harb’r

Sept 6, 2017

There is the experience of staying in a five-star resort for a few days, and there is the sense of living in a community with true Maritime hospitality. Apparently, you can have it both ways, say our hosts at Fox Harb’r Resort near Wallace, N.S. In August, the famed resort on the north shore of Nova Scotia hosted a media tour where it revealed its future development plans which include adding new homes to its resort base. The newest offering is a selection of 12 new homes — single-level, modestly-sized homes with gently sloped roofs …..


Fox Harb’r Golf Resort and Spa Focusing On A New Building Project

Sept 1, 2017

The Marina Landing Project will have 12, one-level, professionally designed and stunningly attractive homes. The homes
will overlook the resort’s marina and the Northumberland Strait with the resort’s 18-hole championship golf course in their backyard.

Canada’s East coast holds golf and history in high esteem

August 26, 2017

There is no better spot in Canada for behind-the-scenes golf tidbits than the Maritimes.
For instance, Ron Joyce was born in Tatamagouche on Nova Scotia’s north shore. Joyce left school at age 15, and after a stint in the navy, became a cop in Hamilton, Ont. He met former Toronto Maple Leaf star Tim Horton and they began to feed the national obsession for coffee and doughnuts.


Fox Harb’r Resort Stay & Play Offer: If Only Summer Could Last Forever…

August 18, 2017

Fox Harb’r Resort ranks high on our list and is without a doubt, one of the “world’s best golf destinations.” Those serene Nova Scotia mornings with a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee hold a special place in our heart. Suites there sit next to No. 10 and 11 and offer beautiful views of Northumberland Strait and Prince Edward Island in the distance. The morning view from the balcony is worth the trip alone.


Enjoy Golf, Gills and Guns At These Top Three Resorts

August 2, 2017

Fox Harb’r is a luxurious, self-contained seaside sports complex in Nova Scotia. There is nothing sly about it, rather a straightforward beauty. The front of the 18 championship holes is a peaceful parkland walk complementing ocean views on each of the back nine holes. A fun, quick executive nine is played by the sea wall with trails for walking, biking and horseback riding.


Fox Harb’r Resort: Eat Lobster, Enjoy the Fresh Air and Be Respectful of the Hall of Famers

August 2, 2017

Ron Joyce, co-founder of the Tim Hortons and founder of Fox Harb’r Resort is walking to his car for the short drive over to the Fox Harb’r hanger where his jet is parked. A group of resort guests are nearby having lunch. Joyce thanks them for visiting his resort. A few minutes later, Sidney Crosby, three-time Stanley Cup champion arrives in the Fox Harb’r pro shop for his tee time. At this point it’s an unofficial Canadian legends gathering, and a Wayne Gretzky sighting is a logical conclusion…

Fox Harb’r Resort offers sanctuary in many forms. The resort is a culinarian’s delight; situated on the eastern tip of Nova Scotia and about 90 minutes from Halifax, the area is hugged by the Northumberland Strait and Fox Harbour.


Fox Harb’r: A Joy to Play and Stay

July 31, 2017

Joyce, the former head of the iconic Canadian institution Tim Hortons, turned that dream of an idyllic getaway spot for a select few into a comfy resort area for many.
Known as Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa, the area he envisioned those many years ago now encompasses a wide spectrum of recreational amenities, not the least of which is an outstanding 18 hole golf course with a number of spectacular ocean view holes.


Destination: Fox Harb’r, Atlantic Canada’s Premier Luxury Oceanside Resort

July 29, 2017

Once upon a time in a far away land, there lived a prince who ruled over a secluded oceanfront resort in Nova Scotia called Fox Harb’r. {Cue violins.}
I’m starting my story with a fairytale intro because Fox Harb’r IS like fairyland—an exclusive luxury getaway distinguished by gorgeous surroundings, gracious hospitality, mouthwatering maritime cuisine and all the comforts of home. And golf. Did I mention a Graham Cooke-designed championship course plus a 9-hole executive course meandering along the sheltered coast of the Northumberland Strait? The setting along the rugged shoreline is exquisite, and anyone who can’t fully unwind here needs some serious psychotherapy.


Fox Harb’r Resort in Nova Scotia

July 27, 2017

Fly in to Halifax or land on the resort’s private airstrip; learn to fly fish or shoot flying clay pigeons at the lodge, then fly your shots around the seaside golf course at Fox Harb’r Resort in Nova Scotia. Ron Joyce, co-founder of Tim Horton’s, originally created Fox Harb’r for jetsetter golfers to fly in on the runway, golf and go. It has evolved over the years, grown organically by Ron, his son Stephen Joyce and team into a multifaceted destination for vacations and permanent homes.


A salute to our country’s best golf courses from sea to sea and tee to tee.

July 1, 2017

Nowhere in Canada is the golf scene more exciting than Nova Scotia. Sitting in the Cliff Dining Room overlooking the final fairways as the setting sun sinks into Northumberland Strait is a grand way to end a day on the links at Fox Harb’r. Ron Joyce, who built the hugely successful Tim Hortons franchise, is the visionary who created Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa.


Canadian billionaire Ron Joyce’s Nova Scotia resort

June 19, 2017

Standing on a terrace overlooking the manicured Fox Harb’r golf course, framed by waving fescue and the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean’s Northumberland Strait, it is heartwarming to hear Steven Joyce describe how his father, Ronald Joyce, was inspired to “give back to the rural Nova Scotia of his birthplace” by transforming this once-swampy swath of north shore landscape into a destination resort and living community that would spur the local economy.


Spring 2017

May 11, 2017

For many Canadians, the Maritimes represents the simple life, taking in the wonder of the picturesque landscape and the feeling of the sea breeze on your skin. For tourists looking for an East Coast escape, Dol-ás Spa, a 2016 Canadian Spa and Wellness Awards winner, is the perfect fit – and that’s not just because its name, Dol-ás, means “escape” in Scottish Gaelic.

Not all restaurants sit on a 1,150-acre property with plenty of room for small-scale farming. Nor do they have access to the green thumb of horticulturalist Michael Stewart, who also grows a number of other vegetables — tomatoes, beans, heirloom peppers, eggplants, zucchini and peas, for example — and all the flowers for the property.

The Maritime Explorer – This is a post on Tim Horton’s co founder Ron Joyce’s golf resort on the Northumberland Strait in Nova Scotia, not far from the town of Tatamagouche where Joyce grew up. All in all Fox Harbr is a very fair test of golf and its immaculate conditioning, great water holes and the ability to play at your own pace (fast for me), make it worth the high green fees.

Fractional Ownership: A piece of a bigger luxury pie

July 30, 2016

By: Hunter Milborne
Fractional ownership began decades ago when companies who needed to use a private jet, but couldn’t afford to own one outright, pooled their resources, purchased one together and scheduled its shared usage. Since then the concept has extended to everything from high-value jewellery to RV’s, sports cars, yachts and real estate

Sustainable seafood hits Atlantic Canada

July 28, 2016

Fox Harb’r Resort, known for its outstanding golf and luxury accommodations, is also a culinary destination.  Shane Robilliard, Executive Chef at Fox Harb’r Resort, is a passionate advocate for sustainable dining and his menu reflects that philosophy.  “For the most part, it’s as local as you can get,” he says. The pan-seared trout on the menu may be fish he’s hooked himself in one of Fox Harb’r’s two stocked fly fishing ponds, while lobster, halibut, salmon, mussels and farmed scallops come from local suppliers.  This “buy local” commitment has earned the Cape Cliff the distinction of being Atlantic Canada’s first sustainable seafood restaurant, certified by Ocean Wise, a Vancouver Aquarium conservation program to educate and empower consumers about their seafood dining choices.


Last Day And Living At Fox Harb’r Resort

It was a beautiful sight to see. The sunrise bathed the whole golf course and water ahead of us. It was simply stunning. One of the best sunrises I’ve seen.
