Property Description

Bear on the Lake Guesthouse overlooks the Bras d'Or Lakes at the start of the Cabot Trail.

We are nestled amongst 25+ acres of forest sitting high above the lake on our own mountain where Eagles flying overhead is a common sight.

Just down the road from world class hiking, beaches, kayaking, sailing and whale watching, we are the perfect location to explore Cape Breton Island.

We are also 5 min to grocery/Liquor store, fuel, pharmacy, and restaurants.

We are proud to offer a very clean and friendly place to stay on your travels.

Nancy was so nice and accommodating. Good location, easy to get to. Room was nice and clean except for no a/c or fan so very hot because of high outside temperature. Kitchen, living room and office area are very spacious and well equipped. Bathroom has tub and shower and was very clean. View from deck on the lake is very pretty.

Cute place with a beautiful view of the Bras d'Or Lake. It has a very homely feel, with all sorts of games, books, and maps/pamphlets of the area. The host was very welcoming and enthusiastic to share her insights about Cape Breton. I was just passing through and only stayed for a night, but I'd love to come back and stay here longer and make the most of the place, have a barbecue, and get to know people!

Had an amazing stay traveling and filming a music video in Cape Breton with my friends. The hostel is clean and comfortable and everyone we met made the experience super inviting!
