My husband has stayed here a couple times while on motorcycling trips with his friends and really enjoyed it- I went along this time to check it out. It was as promised- great! ...very far off the beaten path, which was welcomed by me because I was looking forward to a peaceful escape. The location was beautiful-set within a valley... More

We could only stay for one night there but would have stayed longer if schedule permitted. The cabin we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The property was lovely right beside a stream. We had an excellent breakfast there which kept us fed all day! Ruth and Herman were wonderful hosts. We will visit again......longer next time.

Our group of eight spent three nights at Big Intervale. The location is in a pretty valley along the river and feels very quiet and retreated. The rooms are clean and bright each with a small bathroom. We had wifi but no cell service while there but that was probably a good thing! The owners, Ruth and Hermann, are welcoming... More

We enjoyed an absolutely phenomenal stay at Big Intervale Fishing Lodge. We couldn't have imagined a better vacation. We booked the 2-night salmon fishing package and my husband was lucky enough to have caught a 15 pound salmon. Hermann and Ruth are brimming with hospitality and make sure you are made to feel as one of the family. The food... More

We stopped in for dinner during a recent salmon fishing expedition, we asked one of our group to go in to inquire about a table. At the time there was only 1 out of 10 tables occupied and we were told that they were full and could not serve us. We accepted that, and moved on to a nearby establishment.... More

This is the place to stay for fishing on the Margaree River or just visiting this area. Ruth and Herman are the best hosts you will ever find. The rooms are very clean and have everything needed for your trip. You are in a valley and beside the river. Great place.

My son and I spent the weekend at the lodge using their "discover fly fishing package" and we had a great time from the moment we arrived. Access is by way of a 16km dirt road. Don't use Google maps as it is wrong. Ask for directions from the lodge. The main lodge is bright and modern with a lounge... More

We arrived very late on our first night to this lodge in the dark and wondered if we would ever get there on the dark , bumpy road. I will just say that it is worth the drive back for this quaint, hospitable place. We were greeted by Herman who offered us a beer and showed us to our cabin/duplex.... More

This is my all time favorite place to eat. The food is always good and lots of it. The owners go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time there. The atmosphere is so cozy, especially during the fall and winter. They make the best wings and steak EVER!!!, My husband loves their scallops you get about... More

The lodge is located in a remote but beautiful part of Cape Breton. We booked the fly fishing package and loved it. We're fly fishing novices and our guide Daniel was patient and very happy to share his knowledge and experiences with us. Hermann and Ruth are wonderful hosts. The meals at the lodge are first rate.
