The top of Cape Breton Island welcomes you with friendly staff, charming cottages and delicious, locally sourced cuisine!
Welcome to the Markland and to 2022. In these uncertain times, we want to take a moment to assure you that the safety and well being of our guests and our community is of paramount concern. We are taking the Covid-19 situation day by day based on the science, the government's direction, and an overall commitment to everyone's safety.
We want to thank you for a very successful season in 2021. With all the challenges surrounding travel and the attention and respect given to the safety and well being of one another, the Markland provided a place of leisure and fun to those who visited. Our dining room and take out service continued its high standard and our accommodations, with their enhanced improvements, provided the perfect setting for comfort and relaxation. As we enter this new season, we look forward to celebrating this wonderful gem with you all. Our acclaimed restaurant boasts one of the most exciting menus on the Island and one of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic ocean. Our cheerful accommodations and friendly staff await. We're excited to see you all.
Until further guidelines, guests will still be required to show proof of double vaccination prior to being seated in the restaurant. We trust that this small inconvenience is understood to be in the best interest of everyone and we appreciate your cooperation.
The Markland is located on over 60 acres on the most northern tip of Cape Breton Island with self-contained cottages situated at a comfortable distance from each other. Most of our cabins have fully equipped kitchenettes for those who wish to cook their own meals and enjoy the ocean views from their cabins. Our aim is to make you comfortable and safe while you relax on the ocean's edge keeping the physical distance that we've all become accustomed to.
Guests have access to our kilometer long beach and sandy shore, a simply breathtaking stretch of unspoiled and pristine ocean front. Nature truly comes alive here where the mountains touch the sea. These inviting surroundings will replenish and nourish your soul at a time when we all need to get outdoors and simply be.
