Embark on outdoor adventure at remote lodge in Nova ScotiaInto the forest we went with a mushroom hunter and guide in search of edibles in the speckled light of a summer afternoon. It is the exclamation point for a day's agenda at Trout Point Lodge, a five-star "ecotourism" resort accessible by a gravel and dirt road in southwestern Nova Scotia 64 kilometers from the coastal port of Yarmouth. Chefs Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret, two of the lodge's partners, create a nightly table d'hote for guests that is inspired by Cajun cooking in faraway New Orleans. Instead of flying to Halifax 274 kilometers away or driving through New Brunswick Province, we traveled from Portland, Maine, via the overnight Nova Star ferry, in an ocean-view cabin in the huge ship's bow, then disembarked at Yarmouth for the brief journey by rental car to Trout Point. Almost two decades later, the Tusket still flows and gurgles below the lodge and out-buildings, ready for kayakers, canoeists, and – in late summer – swimmers.TROUT POINT LODGE: Located near East Kemptville, Nova Scotia, http://www.troutpoint.com/Check with the lodge on pickup service from the ferry.Meals are extra unless a part of lodge packages.
