‘The world outside can wait. It’s pure bliss.’
Less than an hour’s drive from where I live, there are two wilderness lodges: Trout Point Lodge, located on the East Branch of the Tusket River (east of the village of Kemptville, Yarmouth County), and Birchdale, located on South Carrying Road Lake, north of the same village.

Oddly enough, as the crow flies, they are less than 10 km from each other; by road, they are about one hour apart (and an hour from Yarmouth.)
Heather White from Halifax says, “They both have large hearths for fires, where visitors can sit and stare and wonder how generations past depended upon open flames for heat and food, plus twinkly dark skies to tuck you in tight at night.”
