The Five Islands Ocean Resort

9 OUT OF 10 Campground has a beautiful location with a friendly staff who try to work with the customers. Owners do enforce rules including quiet hours so everyone gets to sleep at night. In other parks I have been awakened too many times by loud partying. I appreciate owners who are willing to make rules .....

Things to see and do

Arlene Collins Art Gallery

Located at 10182 Highway 209, Diligent River. Growing up in the country, Arlene’s love for art began at a young age, sketching wildlife scenes and admiring the beauty of landscapes. She was born near Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, and began painting in the early 90’s, first experimenting with acrylics, but preferring oils because of better control and a truer color.(Open by Chance or Appointment)

Historic Ottawa House by the Sea Museum

Located at Box 98. This Georgian-style dwelling overlooking island, beach and bay, was originally the focal point for world renowned shipbuilding and international trading businesses. In 1871, Sir Charles Tupper, Prime Minister and Father of Confederation, purchased and expanded the house as his summer residence for the next 18 years. After thriving for nearly a century as a country inn, Ottawa House is now a museum devoted to exhibiting and interpreting part of Tupper's life, as well as the seafaring, lumbering and social history of the Parrsboro Shore. Programming includes: Sunday concerts on the verandah; costumed teas; ongoing activities for children; plus genealogical research facilities. Operated by: Parrsboro Shore Historical Society
