Nova Scotia
Trout Point Lodge — Trout Point Cooking & Wine School

Rugged wilderness, sustainable food practices and cozy quarters that include freestanding cottages make this Atlantic Canada lodge one of our favorites. Surrounded by verdant Acadian forest, this property features riverside accommodations, a refreshing flow of mineral water from its taps and innovative French Acadian cuisine served in the "haute rustic" dining room or the more formal Chez la Tousquet. Those who come for one of the culinary programs at Trout Point Cooking & Wine School may find themselves visiting an oyster farm or collecting fresh mussels for the day's meal, which will also include seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and produce from the house gardens. Among the more notable culinary sessions are the art of paella, cheese appreciation and smoking and curing. Non-food related activities include guided star-gazing, catch-and-release fishing and wilderness safaris.
