Fox Harb’r Resort is a wedding banquet hall located in Wallace, Nova Scotia. Perched along the rocky shores of Northumberland’s East Coast, it boasts views of the water. An all-encompassing space, it combines charm with high-quality service to create a property that lives up to milestone occasions. As such, it would be ideal for hosting ceremonies, receptions, and a range of other festivities.
Facilities and Capacity
Owing to its nature-inspired appeal, Fox Harb’r Resort offers many places from which to enjoy breath-taking views. The Lower Patio that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean would be a fitting place for to-be-weds to gather with up to 150 guests as they say “I do”. Here, chairs can be arranged for the wedding party while a makeshift gazebo can be erected for the couple of honour. After applause rings out, everybody can take in the grounds. A short tour down to the eye-catching Lighthouse Terrace affords everyone the chance to enjoy a cocktail hour on the water. After refreshments and some catch-up chatter, the guests can make their way towards the reception space as the big-day meal approaches.
The Meeting Facility offers 5,000 square feet of space, and it includes a number of diverse spaces for different functions. The 2,700 square-foot Northumberland Room ballroom is arguably the jewel in the crown of this property. It can accommodate approximately 175 guests. This building also boasts a sizable foyer which is ideal as extra space. When night approaches, the terrace can host late-night drinks beneath the stars as the sound of the ocean mingles with the making of memories. Other parts of this maritime-inspired property include the Cape Cliff Dining Room, Sporting Lodge, and Hangar. In addition, a tented reception can be arranged for those who want to bring the outdoors in. An onsite vineyard also adds to the property’s overall appeal.
A dedicated planning team can help couples organize many of the details. They liaise closely with clients to ensure that everything runs smoother than it would without them. Fox Harb’r Resort also offers an onsite spa for a relaxing experience. As for those who want an adventurous experience, several activities can be enjoyed here such as golfing, kayaking, hiking, and other outdoor pursuits. A variety of luxurious suites are also available for those who want to spend the night here.
Culinary experts at Fox Harb’r Resort are delighted to create a memorable dining experience for all. As such, they offer a variety of menus including plated, buffet, dessert, and bespoke options. The onsite kitchen is where the gastronomic genius happens, with several dishes inspired by the venue’s proximity to the ocean, such as the mouth-watering lobster.

We had a lot of family and friends travelling from out of province, and wanted to give them a destination experience showcasing the best Nova Scotia had to offer, and Fox Harb’r was exactly that. The whole grounds is meticulously kept and absolutely beautiful, and our friends and families enjoyed all the available activities leading up to our wedding. Sometimes hard to get a hold of during the off season, the staff was very helpful and attentive once we were on site, and made our whole day go so smoothly.Sent on 19/09/2019
Fox Harb’r Resort's reply:Hello Tara! Thank you so much for posting a review for your Fox Harb'r "destination" wedding here on WeddingWire. We pride ourselves on showcasing Nova Scotia oceanside beauty, outdoor activities and genuine hospitality. So, we're delighted your travelling guests were able to enjoy it all. And it might have taken us a bit longer to respond when getting ready to open for our May-through-October season. But it's our mission to be "very helpful and attentive" to all our Fox Harb'r visitors. We also really appreciate you noticing our groundskeepers' "absolutely beautiful" work. Will pass that comment along. Warm regards to you both, from Fox Harb'r.

Beautiful escape from the city!
Amazing place to get away from the city and enjoy everything NS has to offer. Beautiful modern accommodations, and the food was delicious (thank you chef)! Very professional and responsive customer service (thanks Charlene and Dawn!), the only hiccup we had was with the florist and the coordinators were quick to sort everything out! They were absolutely fantastic to work with. :)Sent on 18/07/2020

Team of Fox Harb’r Resort
Here in Nova Scotia, we are known for our love of a good party, with plenty of food, drink, music, dancing and "sociable" conversation. I've actually been part of bringing that warm Maritimes hospitality to Fox Harb'r and facilitating major resort events since before this oceanside landmark was even fully built.
One thing I've learned about weddings while helping make a hundred of them happen is that information, organization and planning things down to the smallest detail really help beforehand. Things may change. But knowing approximate numbers, like guest count and budget priorities, allows wedding vendors to tailor your event to you, right from the start.
Then, on the big day, it's time to let go and relax. Leave things to experts like me and the Fox Harb'r team. Enjoy the magic, and all those unexpected moments that make the best memories.
One pro tip would be to invest in a day-of wedding coordinator. Having a dedicated pro on board allows you both to truly enjoy every moment of the day and all your guests, without you, your wedding party or family being distracted by last-minute questions and tasks.
In the meantime, enjoy the wedding planning process. And if East Coast, low-key luxury and a ceremony by the sea speak to you, be sure to get in touch. I'd love to share some Fox Harb'r wedding magic with you.
My drive and food philosophy is 100 percent using fresh, seasonal ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible. Fox Harb'r is unique in Atlantic Canada as a resort that has its own greenhouses for produce, vineyard right at our front gates, stocked trout ponds on property, and a Wine Spectator recognized wine cellar that's considered one of the finest in Nova Scotia.That's one way for you to know that food & drink is very important to us.
Of course, one of the most memorable parts of every wedding is what you serve your guests. At Fox Harb'r Resort, our catering team works directly with you to personalize wedding menus and features. So that it's really a celebration that reflects the two of you. Our Wedding Guide has a varied mix of plated and buffet recommendations to suit every taste and a range of budgets.
Whatever you decide to serve your guests, we promise deliciousness and dedicated service,[ from the first canapé and champagne toast, to the last bite of that late-night party buffet.
