We stayed in the one bedroom unit in one of the cottages for 4 nights. Our stay was relaxing and hassle free. The check in was smooth with a warm welcome from Sheila. The unit was very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with cutlery, cups and plates. The view from the balcony was outstanding. We enjoyed paddle boating one afternoon in the lake. The facility is dog friendly and our pug enjoyed his time too. The grounds are well maintained. We did the Cabot Trail for 2 days and returned in the evening. We received a gift card for Charlene’s restaurant and made good use of it too. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends.

What a disappointment this place was and we never even got to stay here! I phoned on Monday night before closing and spoke to a man named Ray (?) who told me that the Bras d'or room was available for Saturday night and told me how perfect it would be to celebrate our 11 year wedding annivesary. He told us to book that night online to secure it and promised us it would be ours and so we did within 10 minutes of hanging up with him. Two days later I didn't receive a confirmation e-mail so I phoned the front desk who told me she had never received the reservation and that they are now fully booked. This is completely unacceptable and now everything EVERYWHERE is booked and we have no where to go to celebrate our anniversary. I am sure it would be a wonderful place to stay, but management really needs to look into their reservation system to ensure this does not happen to another guest. We are heartbroken.

Keltic Quay is a hidden gem in a sleepy town just minutes from Baddeck. Our two bedroom cottage was absolutely darling, spacious and incredibly clean. The view from our cottage was spectacular and we enjoyed spending many hours sitting on our covered deck resting and relaxing. When we felt a little urge to do something, we enjoyed the paddle boats and indoor games room that offered a pool table, television and multiple board games. Our own private BBQ was perfect for creating a home cooked meal. With VERY obvious pride in ownership, from the second you pull through the gates of this community you know the worst part of visiting Keltic Quay will be leaving.

Stayed at the Keltic Quay with a group of female motorcyclists. We had an absolute blast at Keltic Quay's beautiful property. Enjoyed sitting around the fire, using the amenities room and playing pool, and the company of Randy and Sheila. They were fantastic hosts and made sure we were comfortable and having a good time throughout our stay. Can't recommend Keltic Quay enough!
