Seaweed and Sod Farm is a two-room Bed and Breakfast nestled away from the main road in Kempt Head, Nova Scotia, a rural community rich in heart and hospitality. Overlooking the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake, we are located about halfway between the Cabot Trail and the Fortress of Louisbourg. Our isolated farm is the perfect place to relax, delight in the sunset, and recharge for your next day of exploring Cape Breton Island.

Decompress and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere at Seaweed and Sod Farm.

Soak in our fabulous sunsets • Sit and chat with your hosts or other guests • Wander our 3 km of trails • Get absorbed in a book or sip a glass of wine on our screened-in porch • Listen to the crows of the roosters or the calls of local wildlife • Watch a campfire burn down to embers • Catch some shore time at the nearby semi-private beach


Adapting to the Covid-19 crisis we have adjusted our accommodations in 2021 so that we only have guests from the same party staying with us.

  • The sleeping area “suite” consists of 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed in each) and a guest bath. The suite accommodates parties from ONE to FOUR people (plus 2 children).
  • Guests have exclusive access to the Bed and Breakfast, a separate entrance, and contactless check in and check out.
  • The cozy bedrooms and guest bath are located upstairs. Additional guest space on the main floor includes a sitting area, TV, and screened-in porch. 
  • We have approximately 3 km of walking trails. A wander up the hill will reward you with a stunning view of the Bras d’Or Lake and perhaps some wild blueberries.
  • There is a semi-private beach close by that guests may access.

We welcome people of all genders, cultures, and religions and we strive to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all our guests.
