Yes, we do. It’s free. And plenty of parking too (just thought we would throw that in).
There is no shopping per se in the Port Elgin Village. You would need to go into Moncton for the major stores, about 40 minutes drive by car. There are also many shops to see in Sackville, New Brunswick and Amherst, Nova Scotia both about 20 minutes away by car.
Depending on the season, you need to dress accordingly. Bring really warm clothes in the winter with a heavy coat, boots, mittens and hat. In the summer months bring your usual summer attire and sweaters in case of cooler evenings which occasionally happens (remember we are close to the ocean). During the fall and spring months, have warmer clothes available and dress in layers.
Bring a raincoat and hat for walking outdoors when we venture out on a hike (in light rain or ‘shine’.)
In the inn and spa areas we ask that you bring your own indoor slippers (or we will provide them) so that we can maintain a clean and homey atmosphere for everyone.
Yes, our we have a large, private room in the main Victorian style building dedicated to many pampering services for you to choose from. Some of the services may also be done in your room. Spa services are also included in your 4 & 7+ Night Programs plus in the Add-on Program packages. We provide spa robes and slippers.
We do get many inquiries about the juicing program. The Jazzed for Juice Program is designed for whole body cleansing. You can get a jump-start on your weight loss goals, but Jazzed for Juice is not a longer term weight loss strategy. You need to stay on the program for the days you committed to once you decide to join this program — much more produce is purchased for your juicing program, so this fresh food will spoil if you switch to our regular food program earlier than you signed up for.
You will need to rent a car at the airport or drive from your location, although many people will find that they will use their car infrequently because of the day to night activities on the program. There are things to do in the area and many will go as a group. Note that parking is free.
We will be arranging a car service from the airport to our program at Terra Bella for our guests. Stay tuned.
Some people may want to tour the Maritimes while they visit, so a car is necessary for this too.
As a wellness program, we do not recommend coffee as a beverage. However, we realize that many people do drink it and do not plan to give it up. We offer caffeinated black tea and green tea as an alternative. Well also serve delicious ginger tea and other herbal combinations. If you absolutely need a cup every day, Marian will find a way to get you one 🙂
Not at all. We have mostly singles, many women and some doubles. Everyone is made to feel safe and welcome.
No, we encourage nature walks, stretching, yoga, high intensity intermittent exercise regimes (no gym equipment necessary), bands and tubes.
We are a healthy vegetarian (vegan) program with no seitan, gluten, soy, dairy, peanuts, white sugar, white potatoes or red meat. We do offer the option of wild caught fish or organic chicken three times per week.
Yes. Plus an iron and ironing board.
We are just yards away from the tidal Gaspereau River and a few minutes away from the ocean. There are warm ocean beaches to swim and relax about a 20 minute drive from our location.
Although the earliest check-in time is 3 pm, if you arrive before your room is ready, we will store your luggage away safely until it is. If your room is ready, you are welcome to go in before 3 pm.
The first meal provided is dinner on your day of arrival. You can begin the program any time after you arrive and if you want to have lunch with us, there is an extra charge. Please let us know at least a day before your arrival date if you want the extra meal.
