Discover Nova Scotia's Masterpiece!
Our central location on CAPE BRETON ISLAND makes our loved guesthouse a place to rest your backpack as you drive the breathtaking CABOT TRAIL and explore CAPE BRETON HIGHLANDS NATIONAL PARK.
Staying with us on the banks of the Bras D'Or Lakes, places you in the best position to explore every nook and cranny of our enchanting island! Purposely forget your map on the kitchen table; this is a place to relax and lose yourself in your surroundings. As they say here on the island, "There is no wrong turn!".
While the Cabot Trail is likely your main attraction, be sure to budget extra time for discovering unexpected charms. Plan to spend extra days exploring the other lesser known, equally beautiful drives Cape Breton offers!
