We stayed here 4 nights and found it to be an excellent, central location for our activities on Cape Breton such as the Glenora Distillery, Fortress of Louisbourg, Bras D'Or lakes region, and the Cabot Trail . Besides the location we simply loved the clean and modern apartment we had. A full kitchen, living room with gas fireplace, and porch... More

Although still about 1 hour south of the Cape Breton National Park East entrance, we situated ourselves just below the Cabot Trail loop that connects to the east and west entrances to the park. There was a lot of road construction on the east side so we were using the west entrance. The cottages are right on the water in... More

Several years ago while visiting the Maritimes, we quite literally stumbled on Keltic Quay and what a fantastic find that was!! Keltic Quay’s location makes it an ideal base for touring not only The Cabot Trail but also Cape Breton Island. The lodge and grounds are extremely well kept. Cabins are well appointed and spotlessly clean and this is a... More

This place is absolutely amazing! I am definitely going to go back! Everything from the grounds, to the cabins, the garages to store motorcycles and the amazing view of the water are excellent! The only thing better than these things was the warm welcome and fantastic customer service of the innkeeper! This place is definitely one of the best places... More

My wife and I had a nice but too brief stay at the Keltic Quay Lodge. We were only passing through on a road trip, so we spent two nights, but we will stay for a week next time. Very relaxing and great accommodations.

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
