Doctors Brook is on the Sunshine Trail about 2 hours from the Halifax international airport. The area is home to many fishermen and boasts some if the most beautiful sunsets in NS.

The town of Antigonish is located ~20 minute drive and has everything from groceries to restaurants, theater and hospital.

The lobster fishing season runs from May 1 to end of June and is an excellent time to visit for a fresh catch.

In July/August there is a good chance you will see the whales and seals from your back deck.
