Adventure Is Calling
The Salmon Pool Inn is also superbly located for trips around Cape Breton, particularly the Cabot Trail. Many of our guests are couples traveling together who make the Salmon Pool their base for a week of sightseeing without the fuss and bother of changing accommodations every day. Day trips can be relaxed with no rushing, luggage, or schedules to maintain. You can stay away all day, have a nice dinner out, knowing your room is waiting for you.
Beaches are numerous and on our side of the Island (west side). They often have warm water. That’s right - warm water beaches in Cape Breton - thanks to the meanderings of the Gulf Stream.
There is also deep-sea fishing and whale watching available with locations 10 to 50 minutes away. Guaranteed whale sightings by some operators.
Hiking trails are numerous, some inside the Highlands National Park, where in addition to spectacular views, moose and other wildlife make regular appearances.
World Class Golf
The Salmon Pool Inn offers the perfect location for golfers as well. Cape Breton Island offers some of the finest golf in all of Canada. With both Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs 20 minutes from our lodge, the Salmon Pool Inn is the perfect accommodation for your Cape Breton golf vacation!
