Updated itinerary

As our trip is getting close any suggestions would be appreciated.

First night after arriving late afternoon. Halifax airport hotel

Pick up car and drive to Cheticamp. Stay one night

Drive the Cabot trail to Baddeck and stay 2 nights

Leave Baddeck, drive to Wolfville. Stay one night

Leave Wolfville and drive to Bridgewater. Stay 2 nights to explore area.

Leave Bridegwater, drop off car and stay 2 nights in Halifax

Next day fly home

Hoping this is a reasonable itinerary and the drives are doable especially from airport to Cheticamp.

And thanks again for your expert help!

Assume you are using google maps to chart your route. It's a 4 hour drive to Cheticamp straight through ... but will likely take longer due to meal breaks and scenic stops. A good day's drive.

Bridgewater isn't very scenic or interesting ... I'd be more inclined to stay in Lunenburg.

Thanks! Picked Bridgewater for the indoor pool but may rethink that decision.

I wish you had more time in Wolfville. But some time there is better than no time there.

I'd stay in lunenburg over bridgewater, it's more scenic and touristy. Unless an indoor pool is very high on your list.

Your time in Wolfville is very short but you would have a few hours in the morning for a look around and perhaps see a winery or two.

For sure try to stay in Lunenburg if you can.

We are staying outside of Wolfville at a BB that has fine dining. Would we be better staying right in town?

That is up to you. If you want to eat at Blomidon Inn or Le Caveau and walk you should stay near them. But if you are going to dine at your B&B then you would be fine.

Where outside of Wolfville is it? Anywhere in the Wolfville, port Williams, grand pre area is good.
