It takes more than 20 minutes from the Grey Hound Station where I was told is the town center. We took a taxi and it costed us Can $61.1.
Approximately 8 miles... I quick trip. :-)
We did not go the town or even know the nearest place but we did enjoy the scenery along the road both east and west and had 2 very enjoyable meals at the hotel. We used the hotel as a central location for exploring . Hope this helps.
