Sporting Mountain Resort: "Scenic View in Cape Breton" Halifax Hotel Tip by Bwana_Brown

Halifax Hotels: 100 reviews and 86 photos


On one of our recent trips to Cape Breton (Oct., 2002) things were overflowing at our daughter's house so we booked two nights accomodation at the Sporting Mountain Resort, only a few minutes drive away. This is an excellent facility run by a couple originally from Germany - they have three guest bungalows on their property high up on a hill-side overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes. Each has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious kitchen/dining room area and is also equipped with satellite TV. Photo of the living area and kitchen facilities.

Unique Qualities: Located on the out-of-the-way southern shore of the Lakes, near St. George's Channel, the location is very isolated and relaxing. There is a fairly steep road up to the site so it may require a good walk if you book during the winter season! The peak-season rate is CAD$100 per night for 2 persons.

Address: West Bay, Richmond Co., Cape Breton, NS
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: About 30 minutes drive from Port Hawkesbury, the point at which you cross onto Cape Breton Island via the causeway.
