This was our first trip in Nova Scotia, with our two kids (5 and 7). We did a few cities (Halifax, Lunenburg, Brier Island, Annapolis Royal), but the most breathtaking was definitely here, at Brier Island! Some of the trekking is well adapted for kids, the Lodge is well situated on the Island with probably the best view. If you are patient, you may as well see whales directly in the harbor from your room window! The owners, Virginia and especially her husband were very welcoming. The spacious family room is great for kids while your finishing your meal in the next room. Rooms are also very comfortable and the food very good. Only comment is that they seemed to have a lack of staff in the restaurant so don't be in any rush when eating breakfast or dinner there.
Finally, the company referred by the Lodge for the whale watching, Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises, was excellent. The weather was definitely on our side and we saw many whales, dolphins and seals. We were there only 2 nights and if we had to do it again, we should have stayed a few extra nights!More
