Heading to Nova Scotia at the end of August and looking for a nice small little town to stay in after driving roughly 3 hrs after getting off ferry from PEI. We are heading towards Cape Breton to do the Cabot Trail. I have an 11 year with me, so do not want too long of a day driving. Many have suggested Baddeck, but there doesn't seem to be many choices of great accomodation. What could be our next choice? Also would it make sense to take the Hwy. to Baddeck and then cross over to do the scenic drive towards Cheticamp and Pleasant Bay?
