I love this time of year! There are so many fun outdoor activities to choose from and this weekend’s weather looks like it will be just about perfect: Sunny skies and forecasted temperatures of -5*C.
We are lucky, living in Central Nova Scotia, to be surrounded by fantastic spots to spend a winter’s day. Victoria Park, right here in Truro is a 1000 acre wonderland, perfect for hiking or cross-country skiing. We are always pleased to have a cozy fire for our guests to cozy up in front of after spending the day at the park!
Sugar Moon Farm, just a 30 minute drive from The Belgravia, is an award-winning year-round Maple Syrup Farm. They offer tours of the facilities and also have wonderful trail through the Sugar Woods to hike, ski or snowshoe. There are weekend sleigh rides and they even rent snowshoes! Each month has its own “Chef’s Night” featuring some of Nova Scotia’s finest culinary talents. Next month, February, in honor of Valentine’s Day, they are offering this culinary treat twice – Friday, February 5th and Friday, February 12th. We have had many guests over the years who have stayed with us and then gone to Sugar Moon for the chef’s night and they always come back raving about the experience – it’s even more fun when you bring along some friends and stay with us!
When I was growing up here in Truro, I would spend every weekend (and day off school!) at Ski Wentworth which boasts some of the most varied and challenging terrain in the Maritimes. Click HERE for photos of fun times at Ski Wentworth. We’ve put together a package of winter fun, enabling you to hit the slopes by day and relax by one of The Belgravia’s warm fires by night. Discover the snowy playgrounds of Cumberland County. This action packed weekend ($274.95 + HST per couple) includes:
- 2 Nights of Rest and Relaxing Accommodation
- 2 Healthy Gourmet Breakfasts for Two
- 2 All-day lift tickets for Ski Wentworth
- Nova Scotia Delicacies in front of the fireplace after your day of winter adventuring
This weekend, I’ll be running the B&B mostly on my own while D’Arcy participates in a Curling Tournament at the Truro Curling Club with a group of other teachers. I suspect that with the exception of two basketball games, most of my weekend will take place outside on D’Arcy’s pride & joy our own skating rink. When you come to stay, be sure to bring your skates for a trip around the Belgravia’s 28′ x 45′ outdoor rink, complete with benches & chiminea!
