only 4 days in Cape Bretton

Opps, I posted a reply, not a new message. This is quite new!

We also have 4 days in Cape Bretton. I would love some feedback if this is a feasible itinerary. First day out of Halifax we drive up the east coast toward Sydney and possibly do the fort at Louisberg. Stay the first night at The Dunlop Inn in Baddeck in the Heuser Room Unfortunately the May Bell room wasn't available :(

Then we head off to the Keltic Inn in the Ingonish area and enjoy the hiking, whale watching etc for 2 nights. We were hoping to stay in Cheticamp as someone had suggested, however we couldn't find suitable accomodations there.(Lookiing for a romantic setting) Should we skip the Keltic and keep searching in Cheticamp? We have one more night but aren't sure where to go or where to stay. We must end up back in Halifax for the night as we have an early flight out. Thank you so much for the advise. It is so great to hear from those who have been there/live there and know the ins and outs of the Maritimes!

We are in Halifax for a wedding for 4 days prior to our time in Cape Bretton, so we can do a few day trips taround Halifax as well. Thanks

Not many romantic places in Cheticamp so try Margaree. www.margareelodgeresort.com. Or the Island Sunset Resort in Belle Cote. www.islandsunset.com.

I think your itinerary's feasible. For day trips from Halifax, do a search of previous postings for lots of suggestions. And take a look at The Coast's summer issue, which has an article on the subject. www.thecoast.ns.ca/118981.112113body.lasso…

South of Cheticamp is the Glenora Distillery--we stayed there last week and although it's sort of in the middle of nowhere it was really lovely. We stayed in the regular inn rooms which were great but they also have hilltop cabins with jacuzzi tubs that are supposed to be very romantic. We drove up to look at them and the view was spectacular. There are some nice places to eat 10kms south of there in Mabou which is also a really pretty town.
