New management making great strides. LOVED our stay here and would definitely do it again. Oceanside cottages with and without kitchens. Fantastic remote and bucolic setting. Staff friendly and helpful. Delightful breakfast included. Dinners scrumptious - local seafood specialty. Great access to all of Cape Breton Park. If you want to experience the far end and most beautiful part of... More

I went to visit my two sons and had a wonderful time. The cabins are all fresh varnished pine with a stove as well as a microwave. Even the curtains are fresh and 'nautical'. The hotel is run as a family operation and it shows in every facet of The Markland. In addition to the cabins, the main house is... More

My son and I stayed at the Markland for a week and had a wonderful time. The family style cottages were very comfortable and had all we needed so that we could be self-sufficient. A few times we ate at the restaurant on site and were never disappointed - order the halibut! The views were fantastic from the hotel and... More

Spent July 18-July 25 here and are going to make this a yearly visit. Kim and her staff are all stars. We felt welcomed right from the start when we showed up 20 mins before the dining room was to close and treated to a great meal. We had the seafood pasta, chicken pasta and rib eye steak with local... More

Although we stayed at a different place off the Cabot Trail, it was recommended that we have dinner at the Markland restaurant. The food was delicious and amazingly fresh - just what we were looking for. The prices were reasonable and the food portions were just perfect. The cottages looked inviting and well kept - we would consider staying here... More

July 2015. This property was reasonable and special. Broad views of a large lawn and trees leading to the beach. We had a log cabin, slightly less in price than the one-bedroom units, but very comfortable with a queen bed, good overhead fan, good views out the front door/windows, and a full bathroom. The main lodge has a reading room... More

stayed two nites at the Markland....the staff were fun and friendly..a relaxing atmosphere with excellent food and service.. The rooms were clean and neat in a rustic cabin atmosphere. The highlight of the trip as the scenery and food were above average..

Adorable fully equipped wood cabins. Bed was amazingly comfortable & bathroom fully equipped with luxury linens. Staff is very warm and helpful. The views there are beautiful, serene and calming. Agree with the last reviewer, it too, reminded us of Hawaii. Request a cabin close to the water if you can, ours was set back a bit so didn't hear... More

We couldn't believe we found the place. We were spending our time going along Cabot Trail when I saw a sign on the road advertising this place. I told my husband, hey I read about that place on tripadvisor, let's go check it out. Boy am I glad we did! Thank goodness they had an opening for a night and... More

We found this place on a whim without a reservation. The price was great and the view of the ocean was spectacular. Unfortunately for us we ate supper before we arrived and missed out on what looked like a great menu. Other guests that were there we're raving bout how good the home cooked food was (we were jealous). Breakfast... More
