If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place for you. It is in the boonies, in a remote location requiring driving along roads with no mobile phone signal. The lodging is a rustic cabin with good service and ambitious cuisine at dinner time. The negative is that there is very little to do but read: you can use canoes and kayaks in a nearby pond; trails are flat and relatively uninteresting. All in all, much too expensive for what it can offer

I can not say enough about this place! My husband and I visited to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and I have to say the staff went above and beyond. It just so happened that my husband and I were the only guests at the time of our visit so the one on one attention was exceptional. For our first night the Chef had asked if we would mind him experimenting by taking us on a sampler menu around the world... all I can say is incredible. I had heard that this was one of the best culinary experiences you can get in Nova Scotia, and I would 100% agree, truly phenomenal! During our stay we had the opportunity to star gaze with their onsite astronomer, as well as attend an extremely generous and fun mixology class. We also enjoyed the well marked trails on the property, the barrel sauna and the wood burning hot tub. If your looking to escape, recharge and be one with nature all while enjoying great amenities, this is the place!

We’ve stayed at high end properties in many countries. Because of COVID, we decided to try Trout Point Lodge here where we live in Nova Scotia. It far exceeded our expectations! The property is located on a spectacular spot overlooking a waterfall on a beautiful river. The main lodge is a spectacular log cabin structure. The staff were super friendly and very accommodating. The complementary glass of wine at check in was a wonderful touch. Wood fired hot tub overhanging the river, wonderful walking trails, very pet friendly, super talented staff, and on and on. Oh, and the food was fantastic. We have no idea how the chefs created the spectacular meals in such a remote place. This was among the best places we have stayed in over 40 years and more than 30 countries. We will be back!

This experience was amazing. In the middle of nowhere located next to a river the lodge is a luxurious gem. The staff from the moment we arrived treated us like royalty. The dining was first class and the wine choice very good. Being winter our activities outside were limited to trail walks but a highlight was the hot tub and sauna outside by the river.

At the risk of sounding corny I will say that TPL is truly a treat for the 5 senses. The constant sound of the river, the smell of wood burning fires and meals being prepared, the natural eye candy everywhere and the food is absolutely delicious. This is a wilderness retreat so you need to be ok with a rustic environment but if you are then this place is paradise and they will make it worth your while. There are guided and non guided activities mainly hiking and canoeing/kayaking. If there is a particular activity that interests you from their website I’d ask them ahead of time as some of the activities seem to be seasonal and staff dependent. The staff in general are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk to. The owner Patrick is very often at reception and answering questions or showing guests around his unique property. The dinner…. I’m not even sure how to describe it other than a special and delicious experience. I have no idea how they manage to serve such high quality dinners every night. The meal was thoughtful, creative, beautifully presented and most importantly wildly delicious. The dining rooms add to the ambiance and our rustic, romantic and cozy. Me and my wife had a fantastic stay

The Lodge is just as advertised on the webpage. We stayed in the Black Bear Lodge for a week as we have a large dog. The accommodations are very comfortable, the Bear Lodge has its own kitchen and a fantastic fireplace. The views and tranquility are worth the long road trip through the Northeastern jungles. The new owners of the Lodge have made this truly a luxury outpost in the middle of a thick and expansive forest. The fire heated hot tub right by the river - what an amazing idea! Wine and food are expensive but you are getting gourmet meals and a stocked wine cellar in the middle of nowhere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As to recommendations: 1) Please make guests aware that there is no cell service. 2) Hook-up the satellite TV in the Black Bear Lodge. 3) Have someone answer the receptionist phone instead of letting calls go to voicemail - you can forward your receptionist phone so that someone can answer guest requests. The time spent at Trout Point Lodge was worth the travel there, really a gem.

It's a quiet, beautiful spot. Not for kids (they'll be bored) put a perfect getaway for couples. It's beautiful for sure but people don't talk enough about the food...it's off the charts. Absolutely blown away. PS - i think is only my first or 2nd tripadvisor review.

Very nice building, great personnel and super meal. Rooms are not so great. No tea or coffee machine there! Old carpets, windows were very dirty, no grab bar in the bath for older people like us very dangerous. Our toilet seat was loose, no phone to the reception. That is just average and not luxurious.

Thank you for sharing your comments. We do have suite options with grab bars in the bathroom and are so sorry we were not able to show you some of these which might have better suited your needs. For environmental reasons we have decided not to use single-pod coffee machines and to not put coffee makers into any suite. Our Jura Professional Grade machine in the Greqt Room is available any time, is complimentary, and makes the most exquisite espresso, cappuccino and coffee! Thank you again, Pamela & Patrick

I stayed at TPL for a weekend and cannot say enough wonderful things about it. I was kindly greeted by a staff member at the front desk who gave me a quick tour and showed me my lovely room (Treehouse North). I soon met the friendly and helpful co-owners, Pam and Patrick, who warmly welcomed me. Before dinner, I took some photos and watched the sunset (from Beaver Lodge). I’m vegetarian and was concerned that the meals, albeit pretty, might not be substantial. Wrong! The four-course dinners were beautiful, delicious, and just filling enough. Lunch and breakfast were equally scrumptious. I crammed as much in as I could in my short stay there but never felt rushed. Star-gazing with Alex was amazing, especially seeing the moon’s craters. I began my Saturday with forest-bathing, followed by my first (successful!) attempt at stand-up paddle-boarding, a lovely packed lunch, and then a nice hike along Billy’s Hill. I curled up with a good book in the great room and enjoyed the sounds of an Acadian musician while waiting for another divine dinner. Dessert was so good that I jokingly asked the server to bring me another. By this time, the light rain had become a downpour, which made my evening visit to the hot tub even more enjoyable. Sunday morning began with yet more delicious food and then guided kayaking, surrounded by gorgeous scenery. If you’re like me and see a visit to TPL as a big splurge, and therefore are wavering on whether to book, here’s my advice: GO FOR IT!

Gorgeous resort! The staff are exceptional, very efficient and friendly! The food is fantastic, what a talented Chef!! They did a great job accommodating my Gluten free diet (Celiac Disease), almost everything could be made gluten-free and I did not get sick at all, I felt extremely safe eating there and everything was delicious. Really, the Chef is fantastic! Many options to explore the beautiful nature, the paddle board and kayak are the highlights, and you can also swim at the lake. We've been there twice in 2 months , we had a wonderful experience both times! And we are looking forward to going back!
