WOW WOW WOW!

Originally we were only supposed to be spending one night at keltic quay... our other hotel had cancelled on us due to overbooking so by luck keltic quay had space for us the first and second night.

Straight on arrival we were greeted by the beautiful black Labrador Hank. After a quick check in and warm welcome we were shown to our lodge for the few days. It was clean, comfortable, very spacious and the view... the view was wonderful.

Our main reason for visiting was to complete the Cabot trail (an 8 hour scenic drive). I cannot recommend this enough to anyone.

Keltic quay supplied paddle boats, kayaks and rowing boats all free of charge to help yourself too. Every single day I was out kayaking in the lake (despite having never done it before). The only thing I would say is avoid swimming in it. There are jellyfish everywhere although apparently they come in flocks so perhaps it was just the time of year?

We found a top knotch bbq on our deck - and as my partner is a chef that mean bbq’s every evening!

Overall we had a five star stay and wish we could’ve stayed for even longer.

Thank you very very very much!

We will be back when visiting again from England.

Thanks Sonia for your detailed and positive review. So glad you got to meet Hank and enjoy his company. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the view and used us as your destination for Cabot Trail exploration! It's so nice to hear you had your first kayaking experience with us and good tip on the swimming. We do have a quality bbq offering and we are glad you noticed.

Hopefully we will see you again! Have a great day!

I wish we could stay longer! This place is just everything you would hope for relaxation and comfort. Renie's warm welcome and desire to help with anything we need created almost a homelike atmosphere. Thank you, Renie! Cottages are beautiful. Newer built, with everything necessary in it - from kitchen to bath. Internet worked well, washer/dryer were so helpful. Grill on a porch. It was a home away from home. And the setting around was beautiful - so peaceful! In the main lodge there is a huge 'family' room with the pool table, many other games, bar, TV, music...There are always things to do and to meet other families if you wish. And overall location is convenient, while being very private and quiet.

Awesome place to stay! Convenient to Cabot Trail. Beautiful cabins, beautiful location on the lake. Cabins had everything you could need if you want to make a home made meal. Access to canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, a fire pit, a pool table. Renie is truly a great innkeeper, very concerned for her guests' comfort.

We enjoyed or trip to Keltic Quay so much, we are already planning our resturn trip. It was an excellent homebase to explore Cape Breton. 2 Bedroom Cottage was perfect for our family of four. Airbath, TV, and good internet service in our room and a lovely deck looking out to an amazing view. Pictures can not capture the beauty.

Rennie and Hank welcomed us with open arms. We had fun around the fire pit, playing pool and shuffle board in the lodge.

Can’t wait to go back.

Hi there!

I just wanted to send you a short note thanking you for your review of our cottages. Glad the rooms were a good fit and you had some time to appreciate the view. Your right, photos only go so far to do justice to what is right on your door step. Glad you got some games in as well. Have a wonderful summer, we can't wait to see you again!

The apartment was very clean and well appointed. Plenty of supplies. A couple of things I would point out...the Internet service is very slow. Don’t expect to stream anything. Also while the spot is very peaceful and pretty it is not close to anything we wanted to do. A good hour to the beginning of the Cabot Trail and an hour and a half to cape Breton highlands. We did a lot of driving so did not use this place very much.

Hello

We wanted to send you a short note to thank you for your review. We will be following up on the internet speed to see if we can improve things there. It could have been that a lot of users were online at the same time, also if someone is streaming video for Netflix that can also have an impact on everyone's usage. Keep in mind on your next visit that Whycocomagh Provincial Park is only minutes away, as well as the Farmer Daughter. While these spots certainly don't have the draw of the Cabot trail you might be impressed by what you find there. Again, thanks so much for staying with us, and we hope to see you again.
