We started our 10-day Nova Scotia vacation at Irwin Lake Chalets. What an awesome place! Totally private and tucked away for peaceful seclusion. The cabin was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need. Our hosts were ever-so-friendly and helpful. We chose a few DVDs from their extensive collection to keep us occupied between fishing, cooking and eating! The bed... More

My Husband and I stayed two nights at Irwin Lake Chalet for the first time. We stayed in the Eagle's Nest Log Chalet. It was absolutely beautiful, my dream home. It is two story with a loft and queen size bed. The wood stove is so cozy but sure heats up the little place quickly. There is a nice deck... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Chalets a few times during the summer months. I remember feeling a little sense of uneasiness knowing that there is no cable, satellite and limited cell service but we decided to give it a go anyway. Boy are we glad we did! Being slaves to technology and always reachable from our jobs,... More

Quiet, private setting. The 2 bedroom cottage had everything you need to set up housekeeping. Very clean. The only drawback would be the mattress in the sofa. The two beds were very comfy though. Waterfront

We had a lovely experience at this well equipped cabin on a lake until we got into bed and the smoke alarm began to go off. This would not have been too much of a problem however the alarm itself was his up on the wall beyond anyone's reach. Regretfully we had to awaken the caretaker who cheerfully returned with... More

It's hard to believe Irwin Lake is so close to Truro, and just an hour or so away from Halifax - it feels like you've driven hours away from urban chaos. I'd highly recommend this place if you are looking for an easy escape for a night or two (and especially if you are visiting from out of province, and... More

Irwin Lake chalets are located just few minutes out of Truro, but have the feel of being located in the middle of the woods, far from the daily busy life. The setting is beautiful, the chalets are surrounded by the woods and have a lake view. It is very peaceful and quiet there and it is just what you need... More

Never knew about this place but we will go back. We are busy city people and this place was the ideal place to relax and do nothing. Only 1 hour from Halifax. So peaceful. We used the canoe. Only issue is there are no fire pits at each cabin (6 cabins) - you had to go up to the playground... More
