Wow! Everything about this place is incredible, from the exceptionally warm welcome and service to the cleanliness of the room, to the absolutely perfect location - right on the beach. I truly felt myself relax from the second that we stepped foot on this beautiful property.....and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer. If you are looking for... More

We just spent 3 nights at Lantern Hill & Hollow and wholeheartedly agree with all of the positive reviews. Sharon--the innkeeper--has created a lovely oasis. From the moment you turn into the driveway you know it will be special. The landscaping is beautiful and the cottages are perfectly situated on the water--well away from the traffic of the Cabot Trail.... More

Spotlessly clean, amazing beachfront location and super quiet. We were there for 5 nights in early June. The cottages and property are very well maintained, and exactly as shown on the Lantern Hill website. All the staff were super friendly and helpful. We would stay here again as the beach is literally on your doorstep. The location is great as... More

Unlike similar properties, this one is new construction. The cottages are cleverly positioned to offer just the right amount of privacy, yet with a great view. The cottages have everything you need, with full kitchen and a nice sitting area. The rates may be higher, but the value is greater. Some other properties you will be at the restaurants, at... More

Loved, loved, loved the location. We went in early June and we had the beach practically to ourselves (you could walk like 1.5 miles of beach). We got the Beachcomber cottage (the one closest to the beach). The cottage is beautiful. It has two bedrooms with comfortable beds. The bathroom was very nice. It had a kitchen/dining room and a...

Lantern Hill & Hollow, on the edge of the water, with spectacular views to the ocean or the landscaped property was one of our highlights when travelling the Cabot Trail. It was the "perfect" place to overnight, clean, comfortable cottages, with all of the amenities to cook (BBQ) our own dinner that evening. I hope we can book this location... More

The Lantern Hill and Hollow has a spectacular waterfront setting between Ingonish Harbour and Keltic Lodge. The view from the shore is spectacular. The property is nicely landscaped with lovely rocked area near the main house. The cabins are modern, clean as a whistle and beautifully appointed with nice prints of local artists works showing the cabins and scenes from... More

These are spotlessly clean and comfortable cottages right on the edge of the beach. We had a very relaxing time with beer and a good book next to the beach. This was followed up by steak on the BBQ. I would strongly recommend a stay here.

This seaside venue consists of a half dozen cottages, meticulously maintained and managed. Lovely view, surfside and peaceful. No restaurant, but these self-catering cottages have full kitchens, permitting a break from restaurant food. (The nearby Keltic Lodge can provide formal dining, spa and golf at the Highland Links course, run by the Cape Breton Parks folks.)

Our family of five stayed at the LHH in early August. You come here for the setting, and that does not disappoint. The sandy beach is right there, and it feels nearly private, even in high season. Even on the loveliest of days, only a handful of people were on the beach. The views are gorgeous. The cottages seem very... More
