My parents were visiting from Illinois and I wanted to take them and the kids - aged 4 and 6 - to see the Fall Colours in Cape Breton. A friend had recommended The Markland so I though I'd give it a try. Boy, am I glad I did. The whole experience was perfect - from the scenery, to the accommodations, to the food and the staff. i really could go on and on, but suffice it to say our evening was one of the nicest evenings we've spent anywhere and we WILL return.
This place has it figured out. the cottage we stayed in was clean, well appointed, comfortable and just rustic enough to add to the aura without being uncomfortable. The beachfront is one of the nicest I've been to in Nova Scotia (I moved here 8 years ago). The dinner was top-rate: fresh, local ingredients, great service, and they were VERY great with the kids. We felt welcome and relaxed the whole time.
Don't think twice about booking a stay here. You will not be disappointed.
Thanks, Markland, for a great introduction to Cape Breton beauty and hospitality.
