  • Hotels & Motels

    A weekend retreat at a 200-acre whiskey distillery. A world-class golf resort with sweeping ocean views. A unique Island getaway in a historic telegraph house. A family-owned motel in a charming Acadian town—a dream destination requires dream accommodations. Experience Cape Breton Island by staying in one of these stunning venues and you won’t want to check-out!

  • Campgrounds & RV Sites

    Get back to our roots and fall in love with Cape Breton Island’s natural charm. RV around the Cabot Trail, camp cliffside with the sunrise as your alarm clock or simply venture backcountry to disconnect. Experience a night in a luxury geodesic dome nestled into the woods, or imagine a glamping site that overlooks the Margaree Valley. Whatever your camping and RV desires, these sites are sure to impress.

  • Cottages

    Live like a local in one of these homes away from home. Gather together on a 150-acre award-winning estate. Walk from cottage to green. Watch fishing boats pass by your harbourside patio. Enjoy the stunning views of Cape Breton’s west coast with a beachside cottage overlooking the ocean or enjoy a brand-new villa, located just outside the quaint, seaside town of Inverness. These cottages allow you settle in and get a taste of Cape Breton living!

  • Bed & Breakfasts

    Let our locals take care of you. From downtown Victorian homes to quiet country farms, experience the communities of Cape Breton Island from the welcoming warmth of a Bed & Breakfast. Wake-up in a charming ocean view B&B or a character-filled old farm house. Not only will you get to enjoy a stunning homestead, but you’ll get to experience the kind warmth of Cape Breton hospitality while there!

  • Inns

    Pastoral charm meets luxurious amenities. Who says a country getaway needs to be rustic? From boutique Highland accommodations to seaside cedar log retreats, there’s a cozy place to rest and recharge. Stay at a stunning Inn that overlooks the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake, or enjoy your stay at an Inn adjacent to the Fortress of Lousibourg. Get the most out of your stay on the Island by booking at one of these venues and you won’t be disappointed.

  • Hostels

    Stay in unique accommodations where you’ll meet new friends and share incredible memories. Hostels provide the opportunity to connect with other travellers and locals while doing it affordably.
