Blue Forest Shores

Discover the beauty and tranquility of this little piece of the Eastern Shore in Head of Jeddore, Nova Scotia. Our goal is to build a community of regular visitors to share in the practices that sustain us – nature immersion, sauna, herbal & holistic healing and education.

Come for a workshop or multi-day retreat, plan a romantic getaway in the boathouse or try glamping in our bell tent, relax in the sauna, bring a group for a special event, or explore our five islands by foot or paddle. You can also visit as a work-trade guest; let us know if you have skills and interests to share in exchange for staying and participating in our programs. 

The Eastern Shore


Characterized by ocean views, rugged shorelines, vast beaches, fishing villages, and spaciousness, the drive along the #7 highway hugs the ocean, weaving around small coves and deep harbours, dotted with fishing shacks, and with stunning views of islands all along the way, including the 100 Wild Islands, an archipelago of small islands protected by the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. Blue Forest is situated between two long, white sand beaches, each twenty minutes away. There is a botanical garden nearby, hiking trails and several cultural sites and museums. You could easily spend a week exploring the area. 

We are an hour away from the Halifax airport, and a 35-minute drive from Dartmouth. We look forward to your visit!

Please contact us if you have any ideas or questions about all the ways to visit.
