The Experience: The Annapolis Valley has caused quite a stir within the last few decades on the wine scene; the rich soil and sunny climate have cultivated quite the reputation. So much, in fact, that is has merited its own hop-on, hop-off double-decker bus shuttle that brings you between tasting sessions at the vineyards. There is something so democratic, not to mention safe, about transporting wine lovers to the Valley’s best. You can join the ride from Wolfville three times a day, from Thursday to Sunday, making this prime weekend getaway territory. Once you’ve tried all the wines, the bus drops you off back in Wolfville, within walking distance to your B&B, as detailed below.
The Stay: If you conjured up the image of a quintessential Inn, Victoria’s Historic Inn of Wolfville would appear alongside the Dragonfly Inn from Gilmore Girls. Small-town accommodation should always be this charming and quaint! It’s holding onto a few remnants from its Victorian roots including stained glass windows that let in a medley of colours with the afternoon sun and an impressive formal dining room. The Chase Suite is fit for a royalty with elegant drapings decorating its spacious three rooms. While a few lovely historic details remain, you’ll be grateful for this modern age when you slip into the jacuzzi bath with a final glass of your favourite wine of the day. If you’d prefer something cozier, Lalia’s room has a similar historic, four-poster bed feel, and also has a jacuzzi.
