Keltic Lodge
Situated high on a cliff surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and a view of majestic Cape Smokey rising out of the sea, Keltic Lodge Resort and Spa has been welcoming guests to Cape Breton Island’s most majestic property since July 1940 . Comfortable Cape Breton accommodations are offered in the historic Main Lodge, the Inn at Keltic and in cozy two or four-bedroom cottages with fireplaces and verandas, totaling 105 guestrooms.

Recreation facilities include on or in the surrounding area range from a heated outdoor pool, nearby ocean beach Ingonish Beach, hiking wilderness trails, lawn games, whale watching, Aveda Spa, and boat cruises. Adjacent to the resort is a highlight of Cape Breton golf, the 18 hole championship Highlands Links Golf Course, ranked by Score Golf Magazine as Atlantic Canada's Top Public Course in 2009. The course, rich in the Scottish tradition, has been restored to Stanley Thompson's magnificent original design.

Fine dining and award winning cuisine are offered in our two Cape Breton restaurants. The Purple Thistle Breakfast Room overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The Àrdan Restaurant and Bar welcomes guests for a casual, comfortable dining experience and traditional Maritime menu. Our bar features nightly entertainment and a light pub style menu.
