  • Winter Accommodations

    Not even the cold can dull the warmth of our Island. Embrace winter with a snowy farm stay or escape to an authentic Mongolian yurt set in the vast wilderness of the Cabot Trail.

  • Winter Eats

    Cozy up for an après ski ale alongside the Bras d’Or Lake. Defrost over a steaming bowl of fresh chowder. Tuck into a hearty Dutch Pannekoek (pancake) before embarking on a wintery trek across the Cabot Trail. The air may might be chilly but our winter hospitality is warm.
