Welcome to The Markland!

The top of Cape Breton welcomes you with friendly staff, charming cabins and delicious, locally sourced cuisine!

The Markland is the perfect spot to embrace the Cape Breton beauty. The inviting surroundings will replenish and nourish your soul whether it's the Atlantic breeze, the touch of the ocean, the brilliant views, the sounds of the fiddle or the taste of freshly picked blueberries.

We offer  self contained cabins which are ideal for families on an east coast adventure, cyclists relaxing after a hard ride on the Cabot Trail, or couples finding solitude on the tip of the island.

Our talented chefs have revitalized The Markland restaurant and have made a point of celebrating local cuisine with wild halibut, lobster, snow Crab, seafood chowder, scallops and oysters along with choice beef, chicken and pasta. Our restaurant offers a warm welcoming environment for a delicious, and relaxing dining experience. We also serve a complimentary continental breakfast with house baked treats, and gluten free options. Please see the many positive reviews received by our restaurant last season. Our wines are selected from an outstanding sommelier in Halifax and we are proud of the choice offered to our guests.

The  cabins feature ocean views and are a short stroll from our secluded sandy beach. Whether it’s a morning walk, an ocean swim in the afternoon, or a marshmallow roast at night - there is nothing to compare to the solitude you'll experience on this pristine Atlantic coastline. The Markland pool is great for family fun and offers a refreshing option for everyone.

Our enthusiastic staff are ready to accommodate your needs and help make your stay as memorable as possible. Whether it be a guide to local activities, babysitting, or a musical evening, we are here to give you the best of Cape Breton. 

"Great stay, we will definitely be returning!"

We stumbled across this place via an application on our cell phone and booked a cabin for one night....well one night became 6! and it was the highlight of our trip! Beautiful place, lots of privacy if one chooses, friendly staff and very nice accommodations. read more...

Great!! The service was top notch. The food was excellent and the chefs went out of their way to make vegetarian food for my wife...which was absolutely awesome. The location is stunning. The pricing was very reasonable. Highly recommended. Overall, very great experience. read more...

"The Markland is back!"

We've been going to the Markland for 37 years and it has gone through ups and downs. It was recently sold, and the new owners are making a serious attempt to maintain the high standards. read more...
