Comfortable Cape Breton accommodations are offered in the historic Main Lodge, the Inn at Keltic and in cozy two or four-bedroom cottages with fireplaces and verandas, totaling 105 guestrooms.
Recreation facilities included on property or in the surrounding area range from a heated outdoor pool, nearby ocean beach Ingonish Beach, hiking wilderness trails, lawn games, whale watching, AVEDA Spa, and boat cruises.
