Affordable Travel Guide to The Old Orchard Inn

A Convenient, Full-service Motel in the Annapolis Valley

The Old Orchard Inn

At first glance, the Old Orchard Inn (which is actually situated in an old apple orchard, with some of the gnarled trees still there) looks like a fairly modern multi-story motel, but its charm is local and once you enter the buildings, you’ll find a rustic welcome that typifies the rural setting. Large fieldstone walls with inset fireplaces, a wooden barn that works as a concert venue, wood-bedecked cottages and traditionally decorated guest rooms all answer to the rustic vernacular.

The “Old O” as locals call it, has a range of amenities that make it more than a large motel (it has 100 rooms and 29 cottages), although it is the largest accommodations facility in the Annapolis Valley. Enjoy the luxury of a pool, sauna and hot tub, as well as a patio deck that overlooks the town of Port Williams, the tidal Cornwallis River, and on to the dramatic red cliffs of Cape Blomidon. Check the patio’s webcam and see for yourself.

Need a little pampering? On-site Eau Spa has all the usual relaxing accoutrements of a big-city spa. Or take a drink in one of two quiet lounges. Maybe follow that with dinner at the Acadian Dining Room. Because there is ample parking, the Old Orchard Inn can accommodate teams and groups, plus the banquet halls and meeting rooms are large enough for a grand wedding or business event. With fitness rooms and tennis you’re stay is complete.

Located at Exit 11 off Highway 101, the Old Orchard Inn is easy to access and central to what ever you are doing on your vacation in the Annapolis Valley. It’s a stone’s throw from fine dining in Wolfville, a short drive to Cape Split and the Hall’s Harbour Lobster Pound, and less than an hour from Halifax. Historical Annapolis Royal is an hour west on the 101. The Old O is an ideal spot to make a home base.
