It’s not all apples and berries, harvest corn and delicious produce in the Valley. For a crustaceous culinary adventure in lobster, set your compass for Halls Harbour. And for boutique jellies, herbaceous ice-creams and a botanical wonderland, seek out The Tangled Garden.
Halls Harbour is a picturesque fishing harbour and home to Halls Harbour Lobster Pound, a crackin’ spot to sink your claws into fresh lobster (pick your size!), delish lobster mac and cheese or fresh fish and chips.
Order in the Gift Shop and then carry your lobster over to the cook house before finding a table on the patio where you can watch the Fundy tides rise and fall, or indoors.
Or if you’re Resort Glamping at Atlantica Oak Island Resort and Conference Centre, this makes a fun day trip and takes about 1 hour and 13 minutes. Stop at Ross Farm in New Ross or Muwin Estate Wines to sample some local wine or Bulwark Craft Cider.
For Valley Glampers, stop into Tangled Garden to finish the day with some lavender, rose petal, Lemon & Thyme or Chocolate Mint ice-cream, all made onsite using their homegrown herbs and flowers!
When the owners purchased the property there were only 2 trees on the land. After 30 years, this labour of love is truly worth taking an hour out…to smell the flowers.
Truly a magical botanical sanctuary, you’ll instantly feel a sense of calm and serenity between the herbaceous gardens, hidden statues and lily pond.
Unless of course you’re running the Labyrinth…
Find Tangled Garden off exit #10 on the Hwy 101, just past Just Us! Coffee.
