Perfect family cottage for exploring Cape Breton Island. Cozy and welcoming. Great whale watching just around the corner. Host family is fantastic; even visited their garden for dinner one night. We honeymooned on the island close to thirty years ago. What a treat to return...More

About the neighbourhood
Pleasant Bay is a sleepy little fishing village nestled in the foothills of the Highlands National Park. Through winter there is a one-store-town of about 120 people. In summer, fishermen head out to sea and a handful of accommodation, shop, whale tour and restaurant owners open their doors for tourists travelling along the Cabot Trail.

Just down the road from The Old Salt is a Buddhist monastery. Around 25 people live, work and study at the Abbey year round. They meditate daily in a shrine overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and balance their study with a work period in th...
