Cheticamp is ideally located for scenic and picturesque trips throughout Inverness, Richmond, Victoria and Cape Breton Counties. Indeed, you are sitting on the front porch of the most awe inspiring country in the world. Cape Breton's most famous resident, Alexander Graham Bell travelled the world from the Rockies to the Alps, but for simple scenery he raved about the Cabot Trail, which is a major tourist destination.
Regardless of your destination time, spring, summer, fall or winter the Cabot Trail is an adventure. In the fall, with the pallette of God's creation, the colours are a true masterpiece with the orange, reds, and yellow of the sugar maples and hardwood. Indian summer offers a tranquil time to experience the various hues of creation. No rush or timed schedule dictates your enjoyment of what we have to offer in Cheticamp. The only agenda is your enjoyment and peace of mind.
