Montreal Times - - Travel -

AT­LANTIC CANADA – When it comes to places for trav­el­ers to rest their heads, the pic­turesque coastal re­gion of At­lantic Canada of­fers overnight ex­pe­ri­ences that go be­yond the aver­age ho­tel room. From tipis to churches and be­yond, th­ese eight off-the-beaten path ac­com­mo­da­tions lo­cated within the prov­inces of New Brunswick, Nova Sco­tia, New­found­land and Labrador, and Prince Ed­ward Is­land turn an or­di­nary slum­ber into an un­for­get­table sleep.

Tipis and Trains and Churches…OH MY!

In New Brunswick, families can spend the night in a tra­di­tional tipi with an evening of sto­ry­telling by the camp­fire at Mete­pe­na­giag Her­itage Park ( http://www.met­park.ca/ ), lo­cated along the Mi­ramichi River. Guests will learn the rich his­tory of the An­cient Mi’kmaq cul­ture that have lived in that com­mu­nity for over 30 cen­turies. Rates start at $65 CAD for a four per­son tipi. Book­ing is avail­able from July 15 to Septem­ber 15, Wed­nes­day to Satur­day. Boil­erAt the Train Sta­tion Inn in Tata­m­agouche, Nova Sco­tia, trav­el­ers can ful­fill their train con­duc­tor dreams by spend­ing the night in a re­fur­bished box­car or ca­boose. Each car has been ren­o­vated to re­flect the age of the rail­way and in­clude fire­places, air-con­di­tion­ing, TV, rail­way mem­o­ra­bilia, pri­vate baths and more. This un­ex­pected boutique ho­tel also fea­tures a din­ing car that acts as a restau­rant serv­ing lunch and dinner. Rates start at $129.50 CAD per night. To book, visit:
