We stopped here at the end of our trip around the Cabot Trail. It is a great place to use as your center of your visit to Cabot Island. There are great places to experience the Arcadian food and culture.

The town offers a lot of options for accommodations and dining, has several gas stations and the only Tim Hortons you'll come across for a long way. My wife and I chose to stay there on... More

This is a Main-street kind of town. Possibility to get gas before entering the Park. Some cute houses in this town. And last chance to get a good cup of coffee at Tim's.

This is a pretty village in Acadian Cape Breton. Well worth a visit - take time to visit some of the museums and sea shore. Try an Acadian meal - enjoy!!!

Experience real Acadia with friendly folks in a quiet town that makes a perfect hub for the national park. We liked Merry's Motel, a very clean place run by the friendly, professional Suzanne. For dinner try the place that looks like a big lighthouse

We drove through Cheticamp on our way to the the Cape Breton National Park for a couple of nights of camping and hiking. It is a beautiful town with awesome views. After a long day on the Cabot Trail we came back into the town for dinner. We ate at the spot in the center of town with the lighthouse.... More

Tried equipped camping at Chéticamp camp ground. If you like camping, but you are not carrying the gear or if you want to learn to camp or if you don’t want to go through the hassles of camping, then this is good.Parks Canada provides Tent, Sleeping Pads(NOT bags), stove, propane cylinders, lantern, plates, utensils, pots, pans, cups, skewers, grilling equipment...

We wished we had stopped here for an overnight stay on our Cabot Trail trip. It is a wonderful town with lots to do and great places to eat. We ate at Harbour side Restaurant with a beautiful view. Would definitely stay here next time.

Cheticamp is conveniently located to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the reason why we chose to stay in that area. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, a grocery store and 2 convenient stores. You should be aware that the grocery store closes at 6:00pm during the summer. So if you need to do some grocery shopping, you should... More
