Me and my two girlfriends stayed at Keltic Quay this summer as we were touring though the East Coast. Our experience was quite unfortunate. The rooms were nice enough but the service was terrible. We were charged an extra night that we didn't stay there without notice. They were very rude with us and refused despite all of our suggestions... More

Some of the best accommodations available on the island. Very comfortable beds. Well appointed cabins contain everything needed to prepare a meal including BBQ utensils for the patio/deck BBQ. Fantastic view of the beautiful Bras d'or Lake from your patio (about 15' from the shore so pretty hard to miss). Impeccable cleanliness. Nights spent around communal fire pit were amazing... More

It was our first trip to Nova Scotia and since we were driving form Maine we thought we would do the Cabot Trail. Plenty of hotel options available but we lucked out when we chose Keltic Quay. It was more of a suite with a kitchen than a room. We had the entire 2nd floor looking onto the lake with... More

We stayed here in August of 2012. The cabins were clean and beautiful. The lake is right outside your door. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating. We used this as our "home base" while riding the Cabot Trail on our motorcycle. We have recommended this place to others and we would most definitely stay here again. Worth the stay!

The Keltic Quay was incredibly clean, comfortable, and came with beautiful views of the Brad d'Or Lakes. Our hosts were generous and kind - shoveling us out every morning as we stayed down during a fierce winter storm. I highly recommend the spot to anyone looking to explore Cape Breton. Wonderful stay.

The view was stunning and the location ideal making this spot both great as a vacation get away in and of itself or as the... More

It was our great fortune to have spent the night at the Keltic Quay. This great location became a safe haven for some weary travellers who could not imagine having to drive to another destination that night. The accommodations were amazing. A beautiful chateau on the edge of the bay. Even with all it's winter whiteness was a beautiful sight.... More
