Activities

The Rodd Miramichi River Hotel is in the centre of a four-season sporting paradise. In summer there is world-class fishing for Atlantic Salmon (in the interests of conservation it’s catch-and-release) and Largemouth Bass. In winter, we are New Brunswick’s premier hotel for snowmobiling enthusiasts, who can ride groomed trails right to our door. There are both on-site sled storage and drive-up units. A garage for fuel is steps away from the hotel.

There are numerous historical and natural points of interest, ranging from uniquely local facilities like the Atlantic Salmon Museum, Central Woodsmen’s MuseumBeaverbook HouseW.S Loggie HouseRankin House and Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre to the Metepenagiag Heritage Park.

Coming for a family vacation? Play in the surf at Kouchibouguac National Park which boasts huge swaths of sandy beach and the warmest salt water north of Virginia. Or spend the day at Escuminac Beach, where there is fun for the whole family, from a children’s playground to beach volleyball!
