White Point's Main Lodge Officially Opens

The doors to White Point's new main lodge are officially open. A grand opening was held Monday after festivities died down from Nova Scotia Music Week. It was a year ago Monday when fire engulfed the previous main lodge, destroying the building. Owner Robert Risley says a new era has begun at White Point.

The new lodge is made up of many materials including White Point beachstone, rough timber, and iron in the interior and exterior of the building. Roughly 90% of staff have also returned to their jobs, which manager Danny Morton says is very special. He says there is still two-or-three weeks of work left to go on the main lodge before its complete. The lodge will only be open to the public during weekends this month before fully re-opening in December.
