Nice, clean motel just outside the park, and before you get to Cheticamp. Lovely setting, with the Cheticamp river running behind our room. The owners are working hard to make this a destination spot, and improving things as they go. Very, very nice people. Helpful tips about the area. Nice, clean, spacious rooms - basic, but good. Great spots to... More

We booked this place for a night following reviews on Trip Advisor, and I must say we were not disappointed! Bonus was that it was located just outside the gates to the National Park which made our drive back up to Pleasant Bay the following day for whale watching that much shorter. Greg, the Owner, was very helpful in providing... More

We had 2 rooms for 2 nights. Very clean and comfy, owners were very helpful with local attractions and restaurant choices. The campfire at night was a nice touch and we got to meet fellow travelers. It would be nice if they offered breakfast. The only negative was the lack of hot water - 4 people and during our stay... More

My husband and I and another couple recently stayed at the Cornerstone Motel (end of July) and were extremely happy with our choice. The Motel grounds were meticulous and inviting. The rooms were extremely clean but more importantly the staff were not only friendly but helpful in making our stay at Cabot Trail an enjoyable one. We would highly recommend... More

I really liked cheticamp, it's full of Acadian charm. We found the new owners from Ottawa to be really charming and seem to enjoy being hosts. The motel is a motel so don't expect more. They told us that next year they hope to have restaurant open. Use the free shuttle to go into town and eat great seafood and... More

Great location between Cheticamp and entry to National Park directly on the Cabot Trail. Clean and comfortable rooms being modernized by the new owners. Rooms are basic without coffee makers, fridge or hair dryers but good value for the location. The owners are trying to establish themselves and are definitely moving the right direction. Breakfast is not yet offered, but... More

What an adorable little place!! Only a short distance outside of town. Love the colours & those lime green chairs go wonderfully!! Clean & totally safe, has AC & a great cup of coffee to start your morning. There was a fire pit out back, but we didn't join the social circle. Owners were also very friendly & helpful. Love...

I'm truly amazed to read anybody complaining that the Cornerstone is "too far away" because NOTHING in Cheticamp can be too far away! you can literally drive from one end to the other and back in no time at all, it's just not that big, My wife and I live on Cape Cod and were visiting Nova Scotia for the...

This motel is wonderful in everyway you can think of! Greg and Cathy are so helpful. Not sure what steveandnicci or Mabeliba82 are talking about our room was spotless, and a 5-10 min. drive is nothing. Views are great, right at the entrance to the park, very well maintained. Should I ever be back in Cape Breton, Cornerstone will defiantly... More
