    This is my first visit to this hotel. I had chosen this hotel after checking the reviews in trip advisor. However the hotel had mixed reviews, i gave a try as the room rent was less. The rooms are clean and well ventilated. Wi-fi connectivity is good. My room has balcony, i used to open my balcony doors and prepare for my job interview. The hotel is quiet and room service is excellent.

Travel Tips for Sherbrooke

History of Sherbrooke

by sim1



Here is a little bit of history about Sherbrooke village (information is from the Sherbrooke leaflet) :
The French where the first European visitors to Sherbrooke, as early as 1655.

By 1815 the settlement which developed at the head of navigation became known as Sherbrooke, in honour of Sir John Coape Sherbrooke, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia.

For years the community prospered, supported by farming, fishing and, above all, by the timber trade. Busy mills produced deal, planks, laths, spars, ships'knees and shingles for the British and West Indian markets.

Then in 1861 the cry of 'gold' was heard and the town became a lively, energetic mining camp. By the 1869 nineteen companies had flocked to participate in the discovery; Sherbrooke boomed. What some called Sherbrooke's golden age lasted about twenty years.

Mining was reactivated in the early part of the 20th centrury, but was never as successful as before. Lumbering continued as a major industry. Until the restoration of Sherbrooke Village, visitors to the area where mainly sportsmen fishing for salmon in the pools of the St.Mary's River.

The Sherbrooke Village Restoration Area was established in 1969 to conserve part of Sherbrooke and depict a typical Nova Scotian village in the 19th century.

Opening times :
Sherbrooke village is open from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm from June 1 to October 15.

The first thing you see

by sim1



This is actually the first thing you see when you go to the sawmill in Sherbrooke. It was raining a little bit when we got there, but it didn't bother me too much. I was just fascinated by this mill. I could hear the waterwheel turn around, the sound of the splashing of the water..... I stood on the little bridge for a while, looking where all the water came from and went to. And faintly I could hear how the machines where doing their job on the inside of the mill.

In this picture you can see how the water flows to the watermill (click the picture to enlarge it and see the map). There is a dam in Sherbrooke lake and from there the water flows to the mill. In front of the mill you can see the pond. The water from the lake doesn't only flow to the mill but part of it also flows directly to the St. Mary river.

The floor is moving...

When you stand a bit more close to the sawing machine you can feel the power generated by the water. The floor is moving on the rhythm of the saw, amazing what force a bit of water can create.

Sherbrooke village, Nova Scotia

by sim1



This page is about Sherbrooke village in Nova Scotia. It is a couple of hours away from Halifax. You can't miss it when you drive along the east coast to the north (route 7).

Sherbrooke village is a living museum with restaured buildings. In each building there is someone in period costume that will tell you a bit more about how live was in this little town in the late-1800's. It was quite fun to walk around in this village and take a look in all the old shops, the black-smith, post office, school, etc.

Let me be your guide today, and show you around in Sherbrooke village. Let's go back into the 1800's.....
