The space
We have two viewing areas for guests to access while staying at Porters Peak.

1) Porters Peak: Walk up the main road from your lodging to our favorite viewing point. This is where the true inspiration behind Porters Peak began. Expect giant rocks, two inukshuks, rolling hills, our very own Hilltop Lake and be sure to catch the gorgeous sunset in the evening.

2) Porters Lake: From the Porters Peak viewing spot, venture down the path towards a second viewing spot. This trail is short but requires a bit of climbing! 

We have plans to build several more hiking trails in 2023 for you to enjoy and explore!

Where you’ll be

Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, Canada

Nearby you'll find an access point to the lake.

Follow the path on or near your site that will lead you along a walking trail towards your lake access point (this may take anywhere from 20 seconds to 2 minutes). Here you'll find a beautiful opening to the lake; perfect for swimming, launching a floating device (or swimming out to ours in the middle of the lake) or soaking in some sunshine. 

Fishing is permitted on Porters Lake and other surrounding lakes but our private lake is for casual lounging and exploring only.

There is no diving permitted on the lake. Please steer clear of the buoys marked on the lake.
