Take a Breather on the Sunset Side of Cape Breton Island

Relax. Reconnect. Feel at home. Explore.

We invite you to spend some time at the Salmon Pool Inn, located on the world-famous Cabot Trail. The Salmon Pool sits above the peaceful Margaree River, the most prosperous Atlantic salmon river in Nova Scotia. Originally built to accommodate fishers to the Margaree, the Salmon Pool is now a self-catering home from which visitors can explore the natural beauty and vibrant culture of Cape Breton Island. Anglers still very much welcome!

The west-coast of Cape Breton offers quiet beaches, hiking trails, whale watching tours, live music venues, museums, galleries, and restaurants. Just thirty minutes from Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs, this is a perfect private retreat for golfers.
