The Markland offers several types of accommodations ranging from Log Rooms to Two Bedroom Cottages.  A complimentary continental breakfast is included with all accommodations. Our Faema coffee machine makes the perfect latte or espresso to welcome you to another day on the Island.  Before or after your hike, swim, or ride, or just to accompany a good book and a great ocean view, a perfect cup of coffee is only an "ask" away.

We welcome "well behaved" dogs and ask that you be respectful of our guests and our peaceful environment.  For more information, please review our pet policy and dog waiver/agreement.


The Markland is expanding.  We now have a wonderful offering for families or large groups looking for a longer stay or to celebrate an occasion/special gathering.   This waterfront home is part of the Markland property but off on its own, on a secluded side road facing the ocean inlet.  It’s beautiful.  It’s luxurious.  It’s spacious, and, it’s private.  It’s everything you need to make a holiday special and unique.  With 4 bedrooms, it can sleep 10 people very comfortably.  There is a screened in porch, perfect for outdoor dining and there is a deck with access to the water and dock.  A large open circular fire pit can be found in the front and there is even a canoe available for those who want to explore the fascinating coast, the beaches and the inlets.  The home is fully equipped with a superb kitchen, a wood burning fireplace, 2.5 bathrooms and laundry facilities.  Best of all, you can walk up to the Markland anytime to  enjoy a home cooked meal at the fabulous Markland restaurant or to access the beach for a swim in the Atlantic ocean.

This a home that provides true relaxation and a real Cape Breton vacation.

To book, please go to Airbnb, Dingwall, Cape Breton and look for “Piping Plover: A luxury waterfront home.”  That’s us.  Alison & the Markland will be there to welcome you!
