Wonderful Stay. Adorable Cabins surrounded by horses and blueberry fields. The woman at the front desk was phenomenal and helped us plan our trip through the Cabot Trail. The dinner was simple, but tasty. The musical talent that played after dinner was lovely. Great value for the price.

We stayed one night in the beautiful cabins- our meals were the best tasting food we had on the island ( breakfast and dinner), and between the after dinner music, the star gazing, and the laughter around the fire, we could not have asked for a better experience.

My husband and I grew up in Cape Breton, but have since moved away to start our careers. The Normaway is a place I had driven by several times as a child with my parents on trips to the Margaree. The pine trees lining the main driveway had always seemed so idyllic and inviting, so this summer on a trip... More

Come for the music. Period. Normaway maintains a small theater in its old barn, appropriately named "The Barn." The Barn has grown into a regional music center --a rotating cast of home-grown musicians performs there July-October, offering local traditional music the equal of any other scene that I've encountered. At our stay family and friends of a recently-passed fiddler, Robbie... More

Beautifully decorated rooms in the main house. The cabins were basic and dated but clean. Beautiful grounds with bikes to ride. Excellent food in the restaurant with local flavor ie cooked rhubarb available in the morning that I used on the steel cut oatmeal. Very friendly and helpful staff.

This was our third visit. We enjoyed the cabin near the barn with our friends and the upstairs rooms as a couple. We were pleasantly surprised with the excellent dining experience. The bonus was the enjoyment of the local talent in the barn. You never know whether you will meet J.P. Cormier (we did) or Natalie McMaster at the barn.... More

We were bicycle touring before the official season and had hoped to stay at the Normaway because of all the good things we had read. We called and spoke to Dave, who said he could open a chalet for us and even offered to come pick us up! The setting is amazing, just a step back in time with incredible... More

The Good- Love finding good pet friendly options as I mostly travel with my dog. Property is set extremely far back from road with long beautiful tree lined driveway. We stayed in green cabin 35 which is a double bed/jacuzzi option and at the very end of the area with cabins. There were two very large fields and a path... More

The cabins are getting a bit long in the tooth but they are in an interesting location and have some good amenities. We enjoyed the very large whirlpool tub and the swinging bench in the "sun porch" as well as the fold down table. The cabins have BBQs, a common fire pit and a big area for walking / hiking....

This was my first visit to this establishment. We stayed with another couple in one of the two bedroom suites. It had a large sitting area with wood stove, two bedrooms and small bathroom but with a whirlpool tub. The breakfast was included with the stay and was delicious!!! They have homemade bread, fresh eggs, homemade pancakes, great coffee. It... More
