Irwin Lake Chalets opened for business in the summer of 2001. In June of 2007, the Hutchinson family became majority shareholders and in January of 2010, assumed total management of the business. Seven years later, in January of 2017, the Hutchinson’s became the sole owners of Irwin Lake Chalets. Our goal has always been that of total “customer satisfaction” offered in a tranquil, private getaway environment surrounded by nature with only the call of the loons on the lake to break the silence.
Our cedar log chalets in Nova Scotia are in Old Barns, Colchester County, just 3 km south of highway 236, on a portion of Lot 18 as shown on the Truro township plan dated August 12, 1788. The properties in the vicinities of Irwin Lake have provided a valuable timber resource for more than 200 years and still do today. Settlement around Irwin Lake eluded the New England Planters of the 1760s as well as the Acadians a century before.
