“Authentic and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

I go to Nova Scotia a lot but had never ventured this far to the southwest reaches of the province. Trout Point seemed like a good reason to go so on our last vacation we booked 4 nights (they were running a special). From the moment you pull up an d are greated outside with a warm welcome, to the free glass o wine, to the amazing authentic log walled room, you will not be disappointed. Meals were great too.
At first we were a bit taken aback by the fixed menu, but we ate on all 4 nights (and had lunch once), and each meal was great to exceptional. It's a fixed choice menu, but then again each nigfht is completely different--they never repeated anything, even the salad dressings. We had some of the best seafood ever, including in mouth watering soups and mains--the tuna Med style really took the prize,.
My wife was not happy there was no full length mirror in the room, but when we mentioned this, they told us all rooms would have them pronto. There's also no TVs, but this was fine with us. They had a library of DVDs. Who wants TV in the beautiful wild back woods of Canada? I'd rather soak in the hot tub or take out a kayak!

The location is a treat: in a forest overlooking a river connecting a maze of lakes and streams that can be easily navigated by canoe or kayak -- and these are freely available to guests. The main lodge is wonderfully architected in the best tradition of logs and granite. Furniture is crafted by local artisans and perfectly complements the lodge and the locale. We stayed in the main lodge building, in a room (Black Bear) with a beautiful fireplace and view of the river. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient.

The weak point, as other reviewers have noted, is the food. It is good but doesn't rise to justify the considerable cost ($79 per person, not including wine, taxes or mandatory 18% gratuity). Our shrimp ceviche was decent, the roasted red pepper soup superior, the fresh garden salad drowned in an oil and vinegar dressing so acid it could almost strip tooth enamel, and the fresh haddock main course well prepared but unremarkable. The creme caramel dessert was excellent and the only course truly deserving of the accommodations. My tea came as a bag floating in a cup of hot water. As the Maritimes are the last redoubt of the well made cup of tea, this is unforgivable: did the owners spend so much on decor that they couldn't afford a proper tea pot? Service however was pleasantly friendly.

Room Tip: The rooms with a fireplace are excellent. We stayed in the Black Bear room, with both fireplace and...

This resort is nestled deep into the woods of Nova Scotia's south western part of the province. It is approximately 15 years old, built out of wood and brick brought in from New Brunswick, but the furniture is built out of the wood cleared to build the lodge! Very rustic and cozy! The Resort has the most unique hot tub and sauna's out by the side of the river with a stove to heat the water - absolutely lovely! There are bikes to use, as well as canoes and kayaks, for the total experience! There are rooms with fireplaces, a fireplace in the lodge main room and a big outdoor fire pit to enjoy or just curl up to with a good book - if you forgot one, there is a library upstairs to borrow one from! You will not be disappointed here!

Room Tip: There are cabins and rooms in the lodge. I prefer the lodge, however if you are staying a few days...

What a huge lodge made from logs in the middle of "no where." The directions indicated a stretch of wilderness as we drove. Our impression was wilderness everywhere. Trees, babbling brooks, hints of wild life, and a genuine sense of solitude greeted us. The staff were so helpful upon arrival and in ensuring a pleasant stay. We expected to hear wolves or coyotes but none were heard. An erratic WiFi assured that one came here to escape civilization, not continue to be a part of if. The food was OK, not great. Where was the wine pairing? Oh yes, the $89 bottle of wine could be purchased to do that. It is expensive and yet, for this occasional soiree into the wild, perhaps there should be a uniqueness to the cost.

This was a very memorable stay of two nights in a truly memorable location.The lodge is very isolated but that is why we went there.The accomodation is top rate and the food and wine excellent although the dinner menu is small but none the less enjoyable. The situation location wise does not lend itself to a huge menu. The staff are very welcoming friendly and helpful with nothing being too much trouble.
One disappointment was that we booked on a guided hike which was cancelled due to bad weather but that is not the fault of the venue.All in all a lovely place to stay and relax away from it all.
Thank you Terry & J Smart.

We enjoyed 4 nights in a comfy fireplace room . No problem finding Trout Point from the directions in the email confirmation . This truly is a relaxing and rejuvenating spot ! I loved the Occitane amenities and the big soaker tub in the room ! It is a small staff and you really get to know the wonderful people who work at the Lodge . The evening meal service in the small dining room was soooo elegant and the food wonderful , everytjhing fresh and bursting with falvour! It ' s our new fav spot in Nova Scotia!

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side of the building are preferable - that's in the main lodge.

The hotel was very unique and beautiful. Located in aremote location 45 minutes east of Yarmouth. The setting was beautiful.

The rooms were clean and the small staff provided excellent service. Dinner was a set 5 course dinner but there were no selections to choose from. Guests with special dietary needs were accommodated as much as possible. There was a flutist and a saxophone player providing wonderful music from 7 p.m. on.

We didn't do our research before booking (in the car looking for a 4 or 5 star hotel in Yarmouth area) or we would have know the details of the stay (e.g. one dinner menu, the price tag).
We were told the room price when we booked but were weren't aware of the details e.g. food prices, set menu, 18% gratuity....

Definitely a place you want to research before booking your stay unless you have unlimited funds. If you do and if you are looking to get away from it all in a beautiful setting, this is the place. This is definitely a Small Luxury Hotel (SLH).
