Cape d'Or Lighthouse lodging

I would like to make reservations at the Innkeeper's house for this July. I have left phone messages and emailed the owner. I have not had a response. Do you know if he only begins taking summer reservations later this spring? I don't want to miss out on the opportunity.

I am not sure what its status is, but do try in April or May.

Yes, it is a issue every year with early bookings at Cape d'Or. I know some people have never heard back from the operator after sending a early email request. Probably part of the problem is that it is a county owned property that is leased to the operator and perhaps the lease terms are under negotiation. As mentioned you can try back later as perhaps he has a some sort of cut-off where he only responds to emails after a certain date. But in the meantime you could check out some other places as it is always nice for those that do like to plan ahead to be able to do so. And with internet/email there should be no reason not to.

If I am going to unique, remote areas with few accommodation choices I always arrange my accommodations well in advance to ensure I get to experience the location. Even in extremely remote places in off the grid jungle locations I usually get a response within days! Cape d'Or is spectacular, one of those places that can be the highlight of a vacation for the right type of person - and the host is a very friendly fellow - if you do get to meet him that is. I guess it is up to him how and when he decides to answer customer requests - I can assure you any other accommodations in the area will get back to you. Some places you might want to check are the on the beach chalets at www.driftwoodparkretreat.com or the Bayview cottage Gloria at 902 392-2444 no website. Another good option is The Wild Caraway www.wildcaraway.com which can also be a wonderful experience - they are away right now but I am sure they will get back to you. Cape d'Or is within sight of these places and you can always do the short drive up to the Cape to take in the views - and maybe have a chat with the operator on the merits of getting back to customers.
