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.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite this past month and have only great things to say about our experience. The suite was cozy, clean and very spacious with all the amenities we could need. 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

We used Keltic Quay as a central location for exploring the Cabot Trail (the skyline trail is a must). This was the perfect location to relax at the end of a long day exploring. The tranquil Bras d'Or Lake at your door step, bird life flying by (including bald eagles), fire pit and inside fire in the main lodge and... More

You need at least 4 days to do justice to Cape Breton. Because nowhere is too far to drive we found it very convenient to stay in Whycocomagh and venture out from there. Keltic Quay was ideal for our purposes. The property is literally on the shore of a large bay off Bras d'Or Lakes. Five cottages in a row... More

What an amazing place. Clean, spacious, quiet, beautiful views and everything you will need for your home away from home. Loved that it was only an hour from Antigonish. Made our breakfast every morning, cooked dinner on the bar b q. Enjoyed the bonfire meeting new people. Rennie was a great hostess. Nothing bad to say except we had to... More

My wife and I chose Keltic Quay as a central location for exploring Cape Breton island. We had an upper floor looking out over the lake. The room was well appointed and very clean. There was a large sitting area on the lake side of the room with a queen sized bed on the parking end of the room. We... More
