Activities Near By

Within a short drive of the property there are activities and day-trips galore.

Just one minute away are endless miles of beautiful, deserted beaches. Even on hot, summer weekends, one can beachcomb for hours and often not meet a soul. On the other hand there are a number of life-guarded beaches close by – especially welcome for those with little toddlers.

 

 

   
 
For those who enjoy hiking we have over 60 miles (100kms) of pristine and well-marked hiking trails, some snaking through original old-growth forest. Other outdoor activities include horseback riding, bird-watching, ocean kayaking, and whale watching. Golf aficionados could play a different course every day and finish off with Canada’s most spectacular course, the world-renowned Highland Links, in Ingonish, Cape Breton.

Those seeking more of a cultural bend can check out our local, professional summer theatre, tour an award-winning vineyard, visit authentic fishing villages or world-class museums such as the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck. Many other day trips are possible including two fascinating living museums: Sherbrooke Village, a pioneer village of historical buildings almost entirely on their original foundations and Louisburg, a fascinating 250-year-old French fort, reconstructed with historical interpreters.

Beautiful driving tours can also be had starting with our local Cape George Trail – a lovely drive that snakes through our impressive highlands and genuine fishing villages. The start of the breathtaking Cape Breton Highlands National Park is just over an hour away as is the ferry to Prince Edward Island. And beautiful Halifax, the most bustling, maritime, cosmopolitan city in Atlantic Canada is just two hours away.

 

Many more details of the above activities and day-trips are provided as part of your welcoming package.
