I spent 1 night at the newly (2 yrs) refurbished Cornerstone motel. It's an excellent location to start (or end) exploring the Cape Breton Highlands. The room was old fashioned motel, with all new fixtures and spic-and-spam CLEAN! The owners are very welcoming and friendly. There is no breakfast, just coffee/tea, but there are all kinds of breakfast/dinner options in... More

We did a 10 day tour of New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia. This was the friendliest service we had on our trip! The motel is cute and is in the perfect location for touring around the Cabot Trail, as it is a minute away from the National Park on the trail. The motel is a short drive to restaurants... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. They offered to book us a reservation for dinner which was appreciated. Unfortunately there was a power outage across the area so we couldn't eat there. The room was comfortable and clean.

We loved The Cornerstone. Stayed in a river view room which has a wonderful view. Rooms are super quiet and very clean, fridge and microwave included in the river view ones. Greg is very friendly and helpful, recommending dinner options and making the reservation for us.

We stayed only one night to start our visit of the trail and would recommend this motel to any one, from the road it looks like your typical 60's motel but after meeting the owner Greg you soon realize its not typical very helpful in suggesting a place for a dinner (All Aboard) and breakfast ( Evengaline), we have a...

Led by a really nice owner and staff, the Cornerstone is a classic motel. Clean rooms, great location, and just the right amount of amenity like the fire pit and the lounge chairs in front of the rooms. We stayed as a family of three and would stay again. We would also look forward to the restaurant being opened as... More

Can you believe that we stayed here without checking TA before we booked! Our trip to the Maritime from Newmarket was... More

We had 2 nights at the Cornerstone motel. Everything was just perfect, starting with a great welcome from our host Cathy & Greg. The room with a river view was large and very well equiped with a wonderfull view on the Chéticamp river. Spotless and calm place..highly recommended!
