If you think trains are romantic, a visit to the Tatamagouche Train Station Inn in historic Tatmagouche, Nova Scotia is a must. The historic B & B offers the opportunity to eat, sleep, and drink in any number of refurbished CN rail cars. The last time I was home I went on a road trip with a friend. While we didn’t stay at the Inn we did take the time to wander the grounds, and enjoy a fab lunch in the dining car.
This is the second week of Travel Back Saturday. If you like, you can have a peek at last week’s travel inspiration here…
Yes, this could be your home away from home…
Can you hear the conductor shouting…ALL ABOARD! ?
The staff here are so friendly, and even offered us a peek inside…
Of course, our wandering eventually lead to the dining car where we enjoyed a delicious Nova Scotian lunch.
Close you eyes and imagine the changing scenery as your train meanders through the countryside.
Although these train cars no longer meander, what was going on outside kept us entertained as we relaxed over lunch.
These fellas look like they were enjoying their lunch too!
Are you wondering what I had for lunch? Homemade fish chowder and fish cakes were on offer. How could I refuse? I was not disappointed. The chowder and the cakes were perfectly seasoned. Each bite was a treat to the taste buds. Although my Dad’s fishcakes will always be my hands down favorite, these little beauties came a close second 🙂
Tatamagouche ( /ˌtætəməˈɡʊʃ/) is located along Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore about 2 hours outside of Halifax. Most visitors arrive there via the scenic Sunrise Trail. If you’re wondering about the name of this quaint hamlet, it’s of Mi’kmaq origin, and means “meetings of the waters”.

Like many small towns and villages in Nova Scotia the welcome mat goes on vacation during the winter months. The Train Station Inn is open daily from May 1st to October 31st. However, you can reserve your caboose online anytime.[button link=”Train Station Inn” type=”big” color=”green”] Train Station Inn [/button]
