Located four hours northeast of Halifax, Cape Breton is a forested haven full of beautiful wildlife and distinctive local music that is more than just a launching point for ferries to nearby Newfoundland. It is home to the famous Cabot Trail that urges drivers through the beautiful rocky shorelines of the East Coast as they are eagerly pursued by Celtic fiddle music and fresh seafood. Keltic Lodge Resort and Spa perfects this unrivalled East Coast charm with a picturesque waterfront locale that lets guests relax as coastal breezes roll in from the rugged yet majestic Atlantic Ocean.
Perched above the deep blue waters with beautiful views of Cape Smokey Mountain, Keltic Lodge offers an array of activities on and off the resort that can be arranged through recreation staff. Outdoor enthusiasts are eased with beautiful wilderness hiking trails and sea kayaking, thrill-seekers will love Zodiac adventures, and more passive travellers with still get a thrill from nearby whale-watching excursions or puffin viewing. The resort itself has an outdoor heated swimming pool, 18-hole golf course and a seaside soccer pitch, and there are guided hikes organized by the resort that delve into the interesting local folklore and history.
An important part of any East Coast adventure is a true immersion in the local music, and the Highland Sitting Room at Keltic Lodge offers nightly Cape Breton music that you can enjoy while dining on seafood inspired pub fare. The resort's feature restaurant, Purple Thistle Dining Room, has recently been awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence, and here you can enjoy a glass of wine with the stunning views while you dine on fresh lobster caught from the surrounding bay.
Guestrooms in the main lodge feature comfortable beds and a cable TV perched on old growth hardwood floors, and you'll find complementary WiFi in the public areas of the resort. To wind down before a peaceful night's rest, Keltic has an AVEDA concept spa on site offering a full range of signature spa treatments like plant peels and rosemary mint awakening body wraps, and equally as soothing are the saltwater and freshwater beaches. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is close by where a wealth of inland lakes offer amazing fishing, and the Glenora Distillery or Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site also make for interesting outings.
