Beautiful cottage and absolutely stunning beach just down and across a grassy field. Breakfasts were good but by the time we got to the buffet, pickings were a bit slim each morning. Close to Cape Breton coastal hiking trail which was awesome, and we stumbled upon Black Brook Beach which was perfect for wave-jumping. The water was strangely not as... More

Our B&B told us that you need reservations at this restaurant; however, we tried every other restaurant within 20 miles and they were all closed (this was at 6pm), so we decided to stop by and see if they had any availability. When we arrived at the restaurant and asked for a table for 4 people, there were only 3... More

This is a collection of "cottages" around a central complex with a bar and restaurant. The location is lovely, at the end of quite a long country road / lane so there is no traffic, and at the top of a cliff with great views and a lovely beach at the bottom that is an easy walk for kids but...

Fantastic place, very helpful and friendly staff. We stayed Aug 13-16th. The log room included an amazing breakfast, the pastry chef, Adrienne makes outstanding scones and cinnamon rolls - yummy! Only one small thing, a fridge and microwave in the log rooms would be very helpful since the restaurant was only opened for breakfast and dinner. We are going back... More

I chose the Markland for our 40th anniversary. They advertised great views and fine dining. The views were amazing. I chose a log room because they wouldn't guarantee an ocean view for the cottages. The room was comfortable but the walls were paper thin. Pets are allowed so we were treated to our neighbor's dog barking if they were out.... More

This is a great place to stay for a couple of days, and explore the great sights and hikes the Cape Breton national park has to offer, as it is located midway the Cabot Trail. We stayed there for 3 days. We, a family of 4 with younger children, stayed in cabin 1, which was sadly tucked away in the... More

Drove around the Cabot Trail. Booked the cottage a week before not knowing what to expect. Pulled up to lovely cottages with an indescribable view. Friendly welcoming staff. Food smelled great in the restaurant so we made reservations. Was delicious local food and drink - and waitstaff took care of us all night. Cool mini cabins lack hotel style amenities... More

Stayed one night while traversing Cabot Trail. Remote location right on shore. Somewhat rustic room with small bathroom but clean and big enough for our need. No TV which was a plus. We walked on beach and spoke with another family from the area. Beach walk was beautiful and fascinating to watch egress in channel from nearby tidal pool, with... More

We arrived as parents with 2 teenage girls biking the Cabot Trail, coming up from the Keltic Lodge with next day plans for Cheticamp. Proprietor Allison (? i'm hopeless with names) herself a triathlete, offered to personally drive our panniers to our next accommodations...need i write more? One of us accepted with guilt, the others completely guilt free. Load thus... More
