Scott, the owner of the beautiful domes at this location, made us feel right at home! A lot of places have started offering domes as an option for camping lately, but Archer's Edge has cracked the code! An in-unit shower, toilet, as well as a kitchenette complete with refrigerator separates this spot from all the rest. The view is stunning, there was a storm the first night of our stay and watching it roll in over the water and falling asleep to the soft patter of rain is an experience unlike any other. No pictures do this site justice, you must come and see for yourself, you won't regret it!

So hard to leave! We were instantly relaxed by the quiet scenic atmosphere, and friendly welcome from our loveliest host. We had so much privacy and relaxation here, couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon! The first night we were there, the owner hosted a camp fire and we were invited to hang out with the other lovely guests. Our host Scott was so friendly and available for anything we needed. The domes were SO clean, SO cozy, and the decor inside was so pretty. We got the loveliest looking photos and our friends were so jealous! The kitchenette has everything you need to cook/bbq. There's SandieAnnie's breakfast and brunch up the road, and some really beautiful spots to eat dinner close by. Gorgeous beaches. Our host made sure we knew where everything was and made recommendations so we'd get the most out of our stay. There's also a small coop grocery store, liquors store and convenience stores handy. We plan to return annually to celebrate our anniversaries for years to come.

Lovely domes which are more comfy than some hotel rooms. Beautifully designed and with so much love decorated. The kitchenette has all you need for a couple of nights and the bath is really spacious. We bought our groceries and didn’t leave the domes at all. The view is amazing! Had a bbq the last night. Sag on the veranda. It’s so quiet, so relaxing, so beautiful. Scott is a great host, he is on site all the time if you need anything. It was just perfect. Highly recommended!

We stayed in Cabin #3 for 2 nights in June 2022 We would highly recommend staying here for the beautiful views, romantic seclusion and also a unique way to vacation. Below are our thoughts. Pros - Beautiful views of the ocean - Very quiet with alot of privacy/seclusion. - Cabin was fully stocked with towels, cutlery, plates etc. Also had toaster, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and kettle - The host was on site. He was very friendly but not nosey and also very responsive. - Close to town for groceries - A very unique and special way to vacation Cons - Cabin #3 although spacious and stocked, did not have any bathroom privacy (all cabins are this way). Only a small half wall was dividing you from your spouse while in the bathroom. - Cabin #3 also only had a zipper to enter/exit with no way of locking it. Cabins #3 and #4 had zipper that you couldnt lock. Cabins #1, #2, #5 had a full front door with small foyer, which i assume you could lock. - Very loud when there is rain/wind - similar to a tent. - Close to town however very little was open in June. Most stores/restaraunts were closed multiple days of the week.

Good Evening We sent a reply to this review yesterday -- it must not have been posted for some reason. Will try again: Thanks for staying with us at Archer's Edge. All our domes are manufactured by F-Domes in Poland. The Geodesic Structure --does not allow us to building a wall from the floor to the roof. We would be happy to be able to do this but until the manufacturers can come up with a new design all domes are the same. We have built 3 new porches with regular doors. This season we plan on building the last 2 domes --the same way. Unfortunately the noise of rain/wind is not within our control. We do have heat pumps/air conditioners installed so they should help with the noise - probably better than a tent. In June most of our small stores, restaurants etc. are still closed. We do have some problems getting labor in the area mainly because of the pandemic the last couple of years. It certainly has had an affect on a lot of our small towns. We hope you get to visit us again. As a small business owner -- run by one person, and one cleaner we try to do our best to serve our guests. Best Regards Archer's Edge

Amazing experience all around. The rooms are beautiful and clean, you're off the main road so you can enjoy a quiet retreat. The view is hard to beat here. Enjoyed getting to know the owners during a fireside chat. Top notch glamping at a reasonable price!!

Excellent accommodations, very comfortable bed, beautiful view, and quiet. The owners were on-site, very friendly and helpful. They built a fire each night we were there in a communal area. It rained while we’re there and we enjoyed the sound on the roof and sides of the dome, much like camping without the leaks. The interior was not like a tent however, there were beautiful little touches throughout. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for something different!

Normally when I stay at an accommodation, it's really a place to just drop my stuff and head. When we checked in, I knew I wasn't going to treat our cozy dome this way. An easy, COVID friendly check in, a warm dome with a beautiful view, plenty of coffee and I was hooked. I didn't want to leave for the rest of the evening. Archer's Edge is the kind of place you turn to as an escape from the world, wrapped up in a clean, modern, amenity- filled package. There aren't many places that I feel would cater to both the young and old, but this definitely does. There is a heater, shower bathroom, and fridge/sink area. Just bring yourself some great food, merry beverage, and lock away from the world.

My wife and I spent 2 fantastic nights late October at Archer's Edge. It comes as advertised and that is luxury camping. It is an extremely peaceful place overlooking the Atlantic. Fantastic sunsets. Rabbits cross your path on your way to the dome from the parking lot. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The five domes are well spaced apart so you don't hear your neighbour like you would at a camp site. It was very cold, windy and rainy the second night there yet the domes are super sturdy and the heat pump keeps you warm and toasty while you relax. Everything is spotless and the queen bed comfortable allowing a fine sleep. You can see the moon and stars through the front opening from bed. Bring your own shampoo and shower soap, Coffee is provided but no tea, sugar, creamer so bring those, and while the sink tap provides nice and hot water; the shower handle seems to be blocked to get to a warm setting but not hot (perhaps for safety). We brought breakfast items like croissants, english muffins and cold cereal and ate out for lunch and dinner. There is a small table in the dome but not chairs to sit and eat (although on the Edge website they do show two chairs so perhaps some do) so be prepared to have your meals on your lap if you are eating in. I do recommend the Clove and Hitch Restaurant in nearby Port Hood for dinner. We liked it so much we ate there twice. The domes can be a little far from the parking lot for anyone with disabilities or carrying a lot of luggage. For luggage there are two handy wagons available. No wifi but we had good data signal from Bell. There are great hiking trails nearby and the opportunities for photography lovers are endless. We highly recommend Archer's Edge for anyone wanting a peaceful getaway in Cape Breton. We certainly will be coming back.

We had a wonderful time glamping at Archer's Edge. Our dome was very well equipped, spotless and quite cozy! Scott is a fantastic host who is very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Property has great ocean views with lovely sunsets. It's just off the main highway so it is peaceful and quiet. Beautiful place to unwind and relax.
