Social Enterprise with a Gentle Footprint - Opening 2022
The Hotel at Blackbush will consist of 30 spacious rooms and suites, built from local wood and material. The hotel will overlook our beautiful bay with open and natural sand dune (Blackbush Island).
We are planning for a spring 2022 opening; the Hotel at Blackbush will be 3 floors with 30 spacious guest rooms and suites varying in size from 328 to 1037 square feet.
The main floor features our stunning lobby, with sweeping views, our breakfast bar, lounge as well as 10 guest rooms. The second floor will have 10 more rooms, as well as the mezzanine and library. On the third floor are the remaining 10 rooms, in addition to a small meeting room, our spa and yoga space and access to our rooftop area, which includes saunas, outdoor hot tubs and access to our fourth floor rooftop bar.
Our basement level opens out to the dune area in the rear, with direct access to the beach and ocean. We will have outdoor showers, changing areas, storage, lockers, guest laundry, a fully equipped gym, spa, and child care space.
The Hotel at Blackbush is based on sustainable operation values to ensure minimum impact on the surrounding environment. Our plan is to employ people from the nearby area and use local products and goods in order to bring economic benefits back to our regional communities. The main idea when we first started to consider building the hotel was to create a comfortable base at Old Tracadie Harbour, giving guests the option of a comfortable stay in a natural area, close to our local fishing village. We’re building a simple but unique hotel with a gentle footprint.
We believe that both the environment and local community will benefit from this eco-development. Rather than making a token donation here, or planting a couple of trees there, we’re committed to producing real sustainable benefits for the long term.
Relax and unwind at the Blackbush Spa, book an appointment for a massage, soak in our outdoor hot-tubs or invigorate your spirits in our Nordic sauna.
Dine in at the nearby Fish Factory & Seafood Market or celebrate your stay on the Hotel Rooftop + Patio Bar, featuring outdoor fireplace and stunning views of the inner bay and coastal dunes.
If you’re looking to spend some time outdoors with family or friends head to the Blackbush Outfitters Shop for a full selection of activities and rental equipment like croquet sets, bocce balls, hiking boots, paddle boards and even kayaks and bicycles. If you are looking to get a workout in, try the resorts fitness center located on the lower level featuring free weights weights and cardio machines. For low impact workouts, the onsite yoga and pilates studio is also available for visitors and guests.
The nearby beach is also a great way to relax, swim, walk or simply sunbath & dream. The Hotel is only 1000 ft from the outer banks of the National Park beach and a mere 600 ft to the shoreline of Grand Tracadie Bay.
