The Markland is located on the edge of the Atlantic ocean on the most northern tip of Cape Breton Island with a beach and sandy shore that is simply breathtaking. Unspoiled and pristine, nature comes alive here where the mountains touch the sea.
The Markland offers self contained cottages 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.
Most of the cottages feature ocean views and all of them are a short stroll to 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 those who find an ocean swim a little intimidating.
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!
