Lodging in late Sept-early OCT.

Prices in Doers and Dreamers guide verify lodging in Nova. Scotia is still expensive in late Sept- October.Could a 60's couple travel without booking lodging in advance without being held to ransom in comparison to other rural areas in North America?.Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you

Nova Scotia may be compared to other rural areas of North America, but in late September, early October, you are looking at the beginning of foliage season. Like other areas of North America with tourists looking for the best leaf-peeping areas, lodging can be at a premium, especially in Cape Breton, with festivals like Celtic Colours taking place.

Could you find a place to stay the night without booking ahead? Probably. Use the Check Inn Nova Scotia telephone number and they will help you. You may not stay in your first choice of towns, or hotels, but there will probably be something for you, hopefully of the quality you are seeking.

Yes you most certainly can !!

Some will disagree but I always tell posters you need not be held to a rigid timeline in regards to having pre-booked accommodations. Our province may appear small but in reality it is vast and very spread out, you may see an area that appeals to you and wish to spend time there so winging it is fine, no worries at all, all the best,

Re prices in the 2011 Doers' & Dreamers' Guide: Please note the GTD or STC in each accommodation's listing. GTD means that the advertised price is guaranteed no matter when you reserve during 2011. STC (subject to change) means that the advertised price may increase when accommodations are "in demand" because of a particular event in that area or because it is July-September, the prime tourism season.
