We stayed in a log room for one night. As other reviews have noted, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The wi-fi is spotty depending on where you are on the property. Overall, the Markland is a great value in a quiet and peaceful location by a private beach. It's a beautiful place to relax or stay as a base if you want to explore the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
One caveat if you visit in the summer. There are 3 log rooms in a cabin "building," so each of the log rooms only have one window in the back of the room. Because that only window is in the bathroom, the cabin was hot and stuffy due to lack of air and cross breeze. In the front of the cabin, there are two doors. One of the doors swing open about 45 degrees so only limited air gets in. The screen also doesn't fit properly so mosquitoes get in. The other door opens completely but has no screen, so if you leave it open then mosquitoes get in. Some log rooms appear to have air conditioners but some do not. Our unit had an air conditioner but there was no cold air. If you're visiting in the summer and the forecast calls for hot weather, the log room may not be the best option.
