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 continental breakfast and dinner in a warm environment that welcomes families. 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.
If you are looking to help ease the muscle tension from your day excursion or just looking to escape and enjoy a relaxing massage, we offer a massage treatment based on your needs and goals. Lori and Neena are both registered massage therapists from Ontario and members of both the Massage Therapist Association of Nova Scotia and Ontario. A massage from Lori or Neena provides the perfect balance of therapy, wellness and relaxation.
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.
