You are driving all day thinking you are going to a resort - what you end up with is an outdated hunting cabin from 1941 that charges the same nightly price as what an upscale hotel in a large urban area would charge. Cheticamp is an odd place for a first time visit - they have the ocean, and neat harbour but nowhere to rent kayaks. They have mountains all over the place, but no ski hills. They have trails but you can't ride mountain bikes on them. Also, there seems to be lot of boarded up buildings in Cheticamp and empty spaces where buildings existed at one time. They claim they want tourists but restaurants close early and operate with funny hours. Go to Cape North instead where you can rent kayaks or Ingonish where you can ski or ride mountain bikes. And $180 for bug infested hunting cabin is pathetic! The one good thing is that there is a beach a few feet away, but no one in the town cleans it so it's covered in seaweed.
