My house is directly at Lake Echo in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but no public transportation. So for getting here you need a car or take a taxi. It is about 25 min. to the airport or downtown Halifax. You are out in the country and still only 10 min. out of town. In summer you can swim in the lake, or skating in winter depending on the weather.
The room was freshly renovated in 2018 with a new queen size bed to accommodate 2 people.
