A small sitting area is perfect to sit and reflect and watch the many sailboats and various cruise ships on their journeys. Combined with the queen size bed facing the view, and in-room breakfast area, your days start with relaxation and serenity.

The Story of Northwest Arm:

Part of Halifax Harbour, the Northwest Arm measures approximately 3.5 km in length and 0.5 km in width and defines the western side of the Halifax Peninsula. The waterway is oriented along a bearing of 135° (southeast) and 315° (northwest).
The Mi’kmaq Nation called this water body “Waygwalteech” which translates to “salt water all the way up”. Early English settlers called it the “Sandwich River” and also the “Hawkes River”.The Northwest Arm contains several small islands including Melville Island, home of the Armdale Yacht Club, and Deadman’s Island, at the northwestern end near Armdale. There is a large breakwater, constructed from slate bedrock, located adjacent to South Street called the Fyfe Breakwater after the late local naturalist TLC Ratt-Fyfe. There is a public beach (the only one on the Arm) located at Sir Sanford Fleming Park which has only recently been deemed safe for swimming since the Harbor Solutions Project began operations in 2008.
