We did a three-week traveling tour of the Maritime provinces and this was one of our favourite places to stay! We had a two-bedroom cottage on the water, and it was lovely in every respect. It was nicely decorated, clean, and had a washer/dryer in the unit which was really appreciated. The kitchen was well equipped so we bought prepared frozen meals from the Farmer's Daughter (which were all tasty!) as we needed a break from restaurant food. It was cool, but we still spent time out on our deck, enjoying an evening drink and morning coffee - savoring the beauty and tranquility. Randy and Sheila were really hospitable, and Bailey the dog was adorable! We were sorry to leave.
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.
We joined some friends of ours who were vacationing here and were blown away by how amazing the locale is. Nova Scotia truly is a beautiful province and these cottages are perfectly positioned to allow visitors to enjoy a once in a lifetime experience.
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.
Had a great visit here. The hosts were so friendly and helpful. Rooms were beautiful and comfortable. We had fun kayaking and paddleboating during the day. Enjoyed a bbq and campfire with smores in the evening. Highly recommend this resort!
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!
We had stayed at the chalets in the past and found it was lovely except for a very strong sewage smell that prevented us from sitting on our deck during our stay. Unfortunately we had a tragic loss of friends who lived close by ( husband and wife who passed in a car accident ). We live in Halifax and were denied a place to stay while supporting the grieving family! We were told this was because of a “travel ban due to Covid 19”. We were beyond shocked and disappointed in this reasoning as it was certainly not a rule issued by the provincial government. I am a nurse and am very knowledgeable in infection control protocols, if the staff at this facility are doing what they say on the website there would be zero chance of any Covid 19 risk. You can not imagine the stress this caused us during an unbelievably painful and sad time in our family’s life. The folks who lost their lives were well loved in the community and had previously supported this business. Luckily we were able to find other accommodations, but I do promise we will NEVER book here again!…
Keltic Quay is located on the beautiful Bras d’ Or Lakes in Whycocomagh. Great base for your Cape Breton stay. A lovely gated entrance with a pond and fountain. The grounds are immaculate and very well maintained. We were looking to decompress and just relax from work and that is exactly what we did and achieved. What a beautiful spot. The cottages are right on the water and there are kayaks, canoes and a paddle boat available to use as you like at no charge. There is a lodge there with game tables and a beautiful fire place however due to COVID it was not open. We stayed in the Bras d’ Or Suite. It was a one bedroom cottage on the top floor with a Queen size bed. Full kitchen with everything you need. There was a BBQ on the deck which we did not use. The deck was so nice to sit out and the view was outstanding. We spent our last night at the fire pit with a great fire and met a very nice family from our area. We brought our 4 month old puppy which was great to know they are pet friendly. They have a great lab Hank that lives on the property. He loves the water and will fetch a stick thrown into the water. Great dog. We did two day trips which one to Baddeck and one to Inverness Beach both being only about a 25-30 minute drive. There is a Co op in the area for groceries etc. a Guardian Drug Store and a Farmers Market that you can get baked goods, the best hot dog ever, meaning the bun was amazing. They had a lot on their menu for take out. They had a store there as well. Great as it’s just a quick drive from the cottage. Renie who manages and lives on property was great! Extremely accommodating for anything you need. Very helpful with recommendations, places to eat, see and go. Thanks Renie you really completed our stay. I would highly recommend Keltic Quay for your stay in Cape Breton. We will be back for sure! The hidden gem in Cape Breton!…
We stayed here for four nights since they offered a discount for staying an extra night which was great. The cottages were very clean, modern and very well stocked. We did a fair amount of cooking and they had everything we needed to prepare meals. They are very pet friendly which made us nervous because one of us has pet allergies but with no carpeting in the cottage and it being so clean this wasn’t an issue. The manager is so approachable and friendly. The spectacular views are what made the stay special for me. We also used their complimentary canoes and kayaks.
