Our Story

Discover the Quarterdeck Resort in Summerville Centre, Nova Scotia…

Established in the 1930s, the Quarterdeck is truly one of Nova Scotia’s hidden treasures. Perched on spectacular Summerville Beach, over a kilometer and a half of pristine white sand, the Quarterdeck has been a popular travel destination for more than 85 years. Centrally located on Nova Scotia’s South Shore, the Quarterdeck is just 1.5 hours from Halifax, Yarmouth and Annapolis Royal.

For nearly a century, the Quarterdeck has been evolving. From its origins as a roadside canteen serving hot dogs to earning the reputation as the South Shore’s foremost destination for authentic maritime hospitality and fresh, inspired Nova Scotian cuisine. As a Taste of Nova Scotia member, our Grill is focused on serving up traditional flavours and new favorites with an eye on sustainability and local sourcing.

The property consists of a variety of accommodations to meet every taste. Spacious Beach Villas, cozy Shoreline Rooms and a large 3 Bedroom Suite are just steps from the beach, while our stunning and modern Lofts command an amazing view from the hillside, overlooking the beach and Summerville Provincial Park.

A Recreation Centre houses a small indoor pool, fitness centre, sauna, eighteen seat theatre and lounging room with games.

“Truly on the Beach”
Perfect location for a beach holiday, you walk out the door of your villa and you’re literately on the white sand beach, over a kilometre in length. Rooms have a full kitchen, two baths, etc. Super clean with no signs of wear and tear.
