How to Get There
Other reviewers have done a great job of describing the lodge, food and amenities. I'll second their raves and add that we were extremely impressed with guide, Dr. Remi. He tailored the hikes, kayaking, yoga and star-gazing to our interest and ability. His charm and intelligence really added to our experience. We were interested in the botany and geology of the area as well as the astronomy and he was well versed in all areas and shared our passion for preserving our planet's beautiful wilderness areas. I was hoping to do some bird-watching but this was not a great location for that. The free- ranging cats may have had something to do with that. Our stay was for a "sisters' retreat" and it exceeded all of our expectations.
This was our first visit to Trout Point Lodge. A few years ago friends had gone, and were disappointed with the level of service. I had heard that Trout Point had changed owners and staff, so thought I'd give it a try. It was fantastic! Tucked away in the middle of the forest, it is like happening upon an enchanted cottage. Located beside a river perfect for Kayaking and Canoeing. This is also one of the best places in North America to star gaze. Every night, a lovely informed guide took us to the viewing platform to view the constellations, it was the most beautiful sky I had ever seen. The room was beautiful too. Complete with a super comfy bed, fireplace, and perfect view of the river. Lots of other great things, hiking, swimming, yoga. And the service couldn't have been better. If there is one thing I would recommend, it's a big place for folks to eat together. We felt that the dining room was a bit formal. And didn't encourage conversation among guests, I would recommend a big bar sitting area, especially for guests travelling alone, or a communal dining table. And 'shareable' food. But other than that, it was wonderful and I highly recommend it!
When a place is so good where do you start?!
We arrived after a very long drive from Halifax to be given a really warm friendly welcome by Leah.
We had booked the Red Maple Suite for 2 nights and were going to change to a Fireplace Suite on our last night as the Red Maple suite was booked out for that night. However on check in Leah gave us the choie of staying all 3 nights in the Fireplace Suite. We are really glad we did as this was in the main lodge and vey warm and cosy with an outside terrace. Nice bathroom with a recycling bin as well as a normal bin which was good to see.The room was stunning with hand made wooden furniture and nice Frette linens and towels. If I was being really picky I would ask for larger bath towels. They were a little small even for me and I'm not that big!
The room was always clean and fresh spring water replaced every day.
The lodge itself is amazing, built from huge spruce logs and there was always someone on hand if you needed anything. Patrick the owner could often be found wandering around talking to people too which is nice to see.
Two evenings we were there they had live music with Denis and his guitar, oh and his box of various harmonicas! What a lovely guy.
The food was absolutely the coup d'etat here! Chef Andy is the most amazing talented chef ever. We have eaten in some wonderful places around the world but he definitely takes 1st place. My husband's birthday dinner was amazing.
Llorian was very knowledgeable about the wines and all the staff were friendly and you could tell they were a close knit team.
From forest bathing and yoga with Remy to star gazing, this is such a unique place to stay and it's really lovely that they encourage everybody to embrace and look after the area.
Should we come back to Nova Scotia we will definitely return to Trout Point Lodge. It's not an easy place to find but it is so worth it. Absolutely everybody there made our trip memorable.
