There is a fire pit in the back of the motel where you can sit and relax. Coffee is available at the front desk durant normal hours.There is no restaurant on site but a restaurantin towns... More

The motel is located right at the entrance to the Cape Breton National Park making it excellent for doing hiking or sightseeing in the park. The room was clean and had all the amenities needed such as fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The new owners Greg and Cathy were very accommodating and made great recommendations for us for supper and... More

We had the great luck of staying there the evening of the Eclipse. The new owners, Greg and Cathy, have a large open area with a giant fire pit and chairs to sit and enjoy the evening sky. I don't think we had ever seen the Milky Way before that evening. What a great evening it was. The Motel is... More

This motel was perfect in many ways. There were new owners that have just purchased this property in the past year and they have made many improvements. We stayed at a room overlooking the river and the room and bathroom was all updated. There was a microwave and refrigerator with a coffeemaker. They also made coffee in the morning at... More

I had booked a night at The Cornerstone for my family, and due to an unexpected delay (my daughter getting carsick) we were not able to make it to Cheticamp, and therefore had to cancel our reservation. I phoned, and the gentleman that I spoke with was incredibly understanding and helpful. We ended up driving past the hotel the next... More

Very nice owners who are slowly redoing this property. The price was great and we took a room in the back near the river. Beautiful location on this river....a bit out of town which is not a bad thing for us. The owners sent us in the right place for a nice dinner with entertainment. The room was very clean... More

This is a basic hotel in a scenic and convenient location. The owners were very friendly and helpful recommending restaurants and activities. The room was clean and a good size with a comfortable bed but plain. The grounds are well maintained and borders on a small river.

Stayed for one night in a deluxe king room with a view of the river. The room had abundant space and clean. There was a microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator. They lit the community fire for the evening but it was a bit too windy for us to participate. A great location and the owners were great about providing information... More

Perfect location for either starting or finishing your Cabot Trail experience. New owners are working hard to ensure that your stay will be an enjoyable one. My wife and I stayed in a Riverview room while a colleague stayed in a mountain view room. I would describe our room as excellent with great location and amenities. The mountain view not... More

We stayed for 4 awesome nights at the Cornerstone Motel. Cathy and Greg Larocque were great hosts, very accommodating and helpful. We had 4 couples in our party, 2 had the river view rooms, which had coffee and mini fridges, and two couples stayed in the smaller, road front rooms, which were also very comfortable. Greg lit the community fire... More
