A splendid working cattle ranch and reining horse training facility, the Ranch offers beautiful facilities and great food.

There is also an indoor heated pool, a hot tub, and fitness facility.

LD - Travelled to Nova Scotia
"We explored lots of that south coast"
We have just returned from our week in Nova Scotia and wanted to thank you for organising it all. Both hotels were excellent, the Halliburton was very well placed in the city and their restaurant is really excellent. The Hotel Atlantica's cottage was just what we wanted, by the sea and equipped with all we needed and quiet. We explored lots of that south coast with a quick trip to the north but more to see next time! Your printed driving instructions were a GREAT help, not something we have been given before and greatly appreciated them.
