Located amongst the Tobeatic Wilderness in southwestern Nova Scotia, Trout Point Lodge awaits, ready to get you back to nature. Essentially a cabin in the woods, Trout Point Lodge surrounds you in wilderness while offering a luxurious retreat from the inside out. With an environmental focus, this lodge prides itself on bringing you closer to nature without harming it in the process.
Why The Trout Point Lodge?
If you love the idea of camping but hate the thought of pitching a tent, hiding food from bears and sleeping on the ground, Trout Point Lodge is the perfect solution. Hidden amongst the Hemlock and Pine, this eco-resort doesn’t skimp on the décor when it comes to re-creating an authentic camping experience. Brick fireplaces, slate floors, long beam ceilings, wooden paneling and furniture all add to the experience of a cozy cottage amongst the trees. Staying at the Trout Point Lodge is an experience much more in depth than its facilities.
What makes it truly unique is:
- Michelin Star rated restaurants serving food sourced from the on-site, organic gardens
- Eco-friendly practices such as the use of natural cleaners, composting, recycling, fair trade coffee and teas
- Options to join cooking classes, wine education and tastings, guide-led hikes and star gazing tours
- Forest bathing in the river
- Outdoor barrel sauna
- Wood-fired hot tub
- Canoeing and kayaking
If the gorgeous scenery of wetlands and glacial landforms wasn’t enough, the eco-lodge brought the beauty of the outdoors inside when they created the rooms and suites. Accommodations are located in either the Main Lodge, Beaver Hall or the Lakeside Cottage and they all strive for an organic wilderness feel while offering the most lavish amenities of comfort.
- Main Lodge: Made from Easter Spruce logs, granite and sandstone, this three story lodge offers a library, dining room, and two bars.
