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

The owners are very nice and accommodating and looks like they have been making some improvements. They are right next to a river and just across the bridge from Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The bathrooms could use a makeover. WiFi was extremely slow and sometimes non-existent.

We have to agree with mabelira82, great view but nothing special for a family stop, a little overpriced in our experience. It is a little way out of the main town, you have to drive in. Very welcoming hosts and excellent communication,

Traveled here with my mother. It is literally on the entrance to the park and on the river. However it is far away (5-10 min drive) from dinning, gas, etc. The rooms on the river have amazing views, but the room itself is minimal and not super clean.

We returned a week ago from a 10 day Mother & Daughter trip to Novia Scotia. We stayed 2 nights at The Cornerstone Motel and it was just what we were looking for quaint, charming, clean, spacious & beautiful! The owners Greg & Kathy were great host. They have just now owned the motel for over a year and have... More

Very clean rooms, quiet, excellent location at the foot of the most picturesque part of the Cabot Trail. The owners, Greg and Cathy make our stay very relaxing and memorable. Cheticamp has everything you need very close by. We had dinner in one night and Greg and Cathy hooked us up with some fresh lobster which was amazing! There is... More

Enjoyed a lovely 2-day stay with Greg and Kathy in their motel. Beautiful views of birches and the river from our room. Motorcycle-friendly but quiet and family-oriented. Close to Cheticamp restaurants and sights, and directly across the bridge from the Highlands National Park. Wonderful bakery nearby, my husband bicycled there each morning and brought me pastry! Clean, comfortable rooms. Will... More

The Cornerstone Motel accommodates motorcycle riders looking to tour the Cabot Trail and also use as a base to tour other parts of Cape Breton Island NS. It is situated just outside the boundary of Cape Breton Nation Park. The proprietors take the time and make the effort to ensure that you are comfortable with your room and will accommodate... More

We recently spent 5 nights in this great motel, with the new ownership and newly renovated rooms, this was a wonderful place to stay. Exceptionally clean rooms nicely appointed was greatly appreciated. The location right at the Cape Breton Highlands National Park with the best part of the Cabot Trail just meters away and our room overlooking the Cheticamp river... More
