From Ghosts to Golf, Canada's First Resort Enchants in St Andrews By The Sea
Canada’s first ever resort, the Algonquin Resort was built in 1889 as a destination location on the coastline for travelers to come for the fresh sea air. A stunning Tudor style castle overlooking the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, it is easily one of the most recognizable buildings at St Andrews By the Sea. Today it is still a fabulous place to come and just relax, whether by the indoor or outdoor swimming pools, or just staring out into the moody blue of the sea. There are also a few dining options on the property and an 18-hole seaside golf course that just underwent a renovation and features breathtaking bay views from many of the holes. As many hotels with more than a century and a quarter of history do, the Algonquin is allegedly haunted by more than one ghost, and the staff is happy to tell guests all the gory details. Off property, St. Andrews by the Sea is a charming coastal town with more than a few worthwhile attractions.
