Some great walking trails are conveniently located right across the main highway. Trails from 3 to 7km through reasonably thick forest areas can be discovered. Though I do not recommend walking through all of them late at night (no lighting available; I went anyways), they provide beautiful views of Lake Banook and Lake Mic Mac where many kayak, canoe and other rowing enthusiasts enjoy the calm waters.
After a long trip it was nice to be greeted by a friendly staff who gave us excellent choices for places to eat. The location is close to some shops and restaurants. Easy access to anyplace we wanted to go. So glad we stayed here rather than in Halifax.
Check-in was a breeze. Check-out was even better. The staff were very friendly. Breakfasts were sufficient with enough for everyone. I wish they'd add a restaurant so we could stay there for most meals.
Dartmouth, founded in 1750 and located on Canada's east coast, is home to the oldest continuously operating saltwater ferry service in North America. Boasting 23 lakes within its boundaries, Dartmouth has earned the nickname, City of Lakes. The Angus L. Macdonald Bridge, a suspension bridge spanning Halifax Harbour, connects Dartmouth to Halifax, less than 4 kilometers away.
