Recommends a Stay on the Cabot Trail Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi was on the Cabot Trail in May, taking a closer look at this celebrated thoroughfare. He came away with recommendations on how to spend a Great Canadian Weekend on the trail. One of the spots he spotlighted was the Keltic Lodge:

Brijbassi writes: “New general manager Matthew Mackenzie is restoring both the lodge’s furnishings and its reputation. A stunning property that is owned by the Nova Scotia government, the Keltic Lodge had fallen in stature because it was desperately in need of upgrading. A $1.3-million renovation is continuing and Mackenzie, who relocated from British Columbia, has invigorated the lodge with passion and a sensibility for modern accoutrements. The lodge offers a mix of 19th-century charm, eternally beautiful views, local flavours and Cape Breton’s friendly personality. A jewel of a place whose return to prominence should please all Canadians.”
