Trout Point Lodge is a quintessential luxury wilderness lodge nestled in the Tobeatic Wilderness Area in the heart of UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere. Trout Point Lodge is Canada’s only member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and also the world’s first certified Starlight Hotel by the UNESCO partner Starlight Foundation. Their staff astronomer conducts nightly stargazing excursions and astrophotography workshops as well as solar gazing in the day. 

They offer other unique outdoor experiences like Forest Bathing, which has been recommended by Martha Stewart Living, as well as guided hiking, foraging, mountain biking, kayaking and canoeing. Whale watching, sea kayaking, scenic beaches, historic towns, and engaging museums are also available nearby.

Trout Point's kitchen was the first restaurant in Canada to receive international recognition for its sustainability, with the award of a Three Star rating from the UK-based Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in 2013 (Michelin equivalent for sustainability). A luxurious breakfast is served from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. Lunch options include gourmet picnics and packed lunches, or you can order from their delicious lunch menu. The signature daily-changing gourmet tablet d’hôte dinners are 4 courses but can also provide 3 or 5 courses upon request. They have an excellent wine program and have received Wine Spectator's Award for Excellence since 2009. Culinary classes with their Executive Chef or Sous Chef are also available for the culinary enthusiasts.

Positioned so that every room and cottage boast water views, Trout Point allows you to forget the cares of the outside world and truly unwind. The accommodations include eleven suites and one 2-bedroom lakeside cottage, all with ensuite 4-piece baths; some with fireplace, woodstove, separate bath and shower, balcony or deck.
