Cape Breton Island Accommodations

Cape Breton Island’s stunning landscape has helped rank it the best island to visit in North America by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Imagine looking out from your condo rental accommodation to see miles of precipitous, rocky coastline that seems to have weaved intricately along the ocean floor. Or imagine waking up in your angelic, vacation rental suite to the echoes of waves confronting the island’s walls.

Cape Breton was first inhabited by the Mi’kmaq Indians; nevertheless English and French peoples began settling on the island upon its discovery in 1497. For hundreds of years the island has been infused with Gaelic, First Nations, and French culture and because of this, the island is often celebrating its unique mosaic of cultural beauty. One of the largest cultural festivals, which takes place every October, is Celtic Colours. You will definitely want to book a vacation rental accommodation during this extraordinary 9 day exhibition. 33 communities on the island are involved with this event that features ambitious musical acts from around the Celtic world.

You must not leave Cape Breton Island before trekking through the Cabot Trail. This spectacular hiking trail is often referred to as Nova Scotia's masterpiece. The trail’s bold Highlands and towering ocean views have helped inaugurate the Cabot Trail into world-class status among avid global hikers. Spend the day outside of your lodging accommodations and experience the trail for yourself.

Many visitors to Cape Breton Island book their vacation rentals near the Cabot Trail in order to experience the fantastic golf facilities located on the trail. This Atlantic Maritime island boasts the best golfing in all of Canada and calls the Highlands Links, Bell Bay, Le Portage, and Dundee courses the “Fabulous Foursome”, because of their breathtaking seascape views and challenging holes.

The location of Cape Breton Island makes it a terrific spot to whale watch. Accommodations such as condo rentals and vacation rentals situated near the Cape Breton Highlands National Park are perfect for those travellers who want to experience marine life because most tours depart from this location. Companies like the Seaside Whale and Nature Cruises offer 2-3 hour tours that depart from Cheticamp 3 times daily from June to October.
