When visiting the province of Nova Scotia Irwin Lake Chalets is the place to stay. Choose from six cozy lakefront chalets/cottages nestled among the hardwood trees on secluded Irwin Lake, Colchester County, Nova Scotia. There are one and two bedroom accommodation units; loft and bungalow style. Each log chalet has a covered deck, a propane barbecue, a fully-equipped kitchen, a full bath and electric heat as well as a wood stove (wood provided). The cedar log interior of each chalet adds additional warmth to the country decor. Two of our chalets (The Rabbit Furrow and The Eagle's Nest) have private outdoor hot tubs.

This was an amazing romantic getaway spot for hubby and I. The hot tub on the deck was an added bonus. Can’t wait to go back again. The peace and tranquillity was second to none. Listening to the lions on the lake was amazing.

We were looking forward to this getaway. Only booked for 2 nights and wish it was more. The chalet was clean and had everything we needed and expected plus more. We knew there was no wifi or anything which was great to disconnect from the world. It's close enough to Truro

"The rabbit burrow has a good view of the lake. Only one cottage would not have a good view. I think that was called the Eagles Nest."
"The eagles nest has a hot tub!!!"
"If you want to be inside the Deer Nook has a 2 seater whirlpool tub. The rest have outdoor hot tubs."
"Only a few cabins (two?) have hot tubs so if you are interested in having one, ask the desk for a cabin with one."
"Rabbit Furrow is on the lake with a hot tub on the deck. It's two bedrooms, but the owner locked the second bedroom and gave us the one bedroom rate. The other hot tub is in Eag;e's Nest, a one bed loft-style chalet."
